Worth Noting and Showing Up:

The summary below is good reason not to have confidence in the City’s Community Calendar as a source as many of the meetings found by going through every board and commission were not listed in the Community Calendar.

The agenda for the January 21 City Council meeting follows the list of next week’s meetings and there are lots of important items that could use your comment either with an email, phone call or showing up on January 21 including 43 .a&b 5-year paving plan, 44. Outdoor Emergency Shelter, 46. Purchase order for trucks

Monday: The Agenda Committee planning for January 28 City Council meeting #8 prohibiting cell phones, text, email, etc during Council meetings under items to be reviewed deserves comment. Some of the Council members are constantly texting during meetings along with receiving “coaching” on how to question/comment, expect resistance of the prohibition from those who depend on these tactics the most. Also note Surveillance reports due and RV parking in City lots,

Tuesday: Council Worksession note the $ 95 million estimate for Veterans Building and Old City Hall -more-
