Council to discuss $5M landslide repairs in Dougherty Valley

Special meeting set for Monday morning

San Ramon city leaders have scheduled a special meeting for Monday morning to consider increasing the cost of repairs associated with addressing landslide problems in an area of the Dougherty Valley.

The Kami Court landslide repair project is now estimated to cost $5 million, so an additional $2 million needs to be allocated from the Dougherty Valley Geologic Hazard Abatement District (GHAD) reserves fund for the project, according to city staff.

The City Council members -- sitting as the Board of Directors of the GHAD, which is technically a separate agency -- will discuss the new allocation as well as whether to increase the construction contract with Goodfellow Brothers California LLC by another $1.75 million to cover the costs.

The special meeting is scheduled to start at 8 a.m. Monday in the council chambers at San Ramon City Hall, 7000 Bollinger Canyon Road.

Landslides occur when gravity overcomes the force of friction. Several common causes of landslides are: Water: Perhaps the most common trigger of a landslide, water reduces the friction between the bedrock and the overlying sediment, and gravity sends the debris sliding downhill.
