City Agency Hearings + Sheehy Legislation

The Board of Supervisors meets Tuesday, October 31 (scary!), 2 p.m., in City Hall, room 250. See full agenda here.

The Recreation and Parks Department still does not seem to be able to get agendas online until well after the fact. I have written to their info email address, so let’s see how that goes. Meanwhile, the Capital Committee meets November 1, and the Operations Committee meets November 2, both meetings from 2 to 4 p.m., in City Hall, room 416.

  • RecPark Project Manager Brett Desmarais told us at Wednesday’s GPA quarterly meeting that he will be appearing before the Capital Committee to get money to re-do the Sussex Street stairs.
