McElhaney: Quan Administration “Betrayed” Council on Army Base Commitments

By Post Staff

Alameda County Sheriff Department sent a notice Thursday to PCC Logistics at the city’s Army Base property, saying that the company is facing eviction and that the sheriff is preparing to padlock the facility and take position of the contents, according to Councilmember Lynette Gibson McElhaney.

“This is an action that is coming from the administration and is a betrayal of what was communicated to the City Council. Staff

said the eviction process was a formal legal procedure, but now they are putting PCC on notice, she said.

PCC Logistics, which handles customs inspections for the Port of Oakland, recently received a lease from the port for a temporary site on the port’s property. PCC is renovating the site so it can move.

“This is not what they (city staff) committed to us three weeks ago before we went on recess. They´re doing this while we’re on recess,” McElhaney said.

“This is rogue staff,” she said, adding that the mayor has to accept responsibility to solve this issue.
