Briefings, Finances, Pensions, Celebrations, Cops and Cars
I thought this was going to be an easy week, hoping for a reduced schedule so I can whip this darn cold. Ah, but it is not to be.
SPECIAL COUNCIL MEETING
Tuesday, April 30th, there will be a special City Council Meeting in council chambers beginning at 4:30. You can read the agenda HERE. It looks like this one is going to be a closed session, from which they typically don't return to report out, but you just never know.
FINANCIAL ADVISORY COMMITTEE MEETING
Before that meeting starts, though, the Financial Advisory Committee will meet in Conference Room 1A beginning at 3:30. The agenda for that one is HERE. Of note is council member
PENSION ADVISORY COMMITTEE
Wednesday, May 1, 2013, the brand new Pension Advisory Committee meets, also in Conference Room 1A, but at 4:30. The announcement is HERE, but no agenda is available now. NOTE: Agenda now available HERE. I suspect they will elect officers and begin to chart a course for the future. Perhaps they will discuss the recent announcement by Cal PERS that it has approved employer rate hikes of 50% over the next few years, HERE. They might also discuss recent announcements like the one HERE, in which the San Jose City Council discovered it cannot afford to bail out of CalPERS for current and former council persons - too costly. And, they will certainly discuss the announcement last week that CalPERS investments have surpassed prior record highs, HERE. Should be an interesting launch for this group.
60TH ANNIVERSARY COMMITTEE MEETING
Thursday, May 2, 2013, at 5:30 in the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) adjacent to the Police Station, the 60th Anniversary Celebration Committee will meet again to discuss the fine-tuning of their plans for the launch weekend. You can read the agenda HERE. Vice Chair Melinda Lowery will be in charge of this one.
TIPPING A FEW COPS
Also on Thursday and overlapping with that meeting is the Tip-A-Cop event at the Claim Jumper at South Coast Plaza. From 5-9 p.m. the meals at that fine restaurant will be served by members of the CMPD and all tips provided to them will go to the Special Olympics. And, no, boys and girls.. it doesn't mean you get to push a cop over - as in a popular pastime back in Jim Righeimer country - cow tipping.
FIRST FRIDAY ROAD SHOW
Friday, May 3rd, is the latest installment of the First Friday Roadshow - the classic and hot rod show in the City Hall parking lot beginning at 6:00 p.m. As usual, there will be lots of great classic cars, music and food via a food truck - and it's free (the show, not the food).
