Atherton's City Council will vote Wednesday, Sept. 6, on a new agreement with Caltrans to accept a $13.6 million grant to put a flood and water pollution control facility in Holbrook-Palmer Park.

The council meets at 4 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 6, in its chambers at 94 Ashfield Road in Atherton after a short closed session to discuss labor negotiations with nonunion employees.

The only other item on the agenda is approval of a pre-qualified list of four engineering contractors whom the city can use for on-call construction management and inspections services: Ghirardelli Associates Inc., Vali Cooper & Associates Inc., Hill International Inc., and Caltrop Corp.-TRC Co.
