calendar.jpgCity government happenings for the last week of June, plus a post-script:

Lafayette City Council: 7 p.m. Monday, Community Room, Lafayette library, 3491 Mt. Diablo Boulevard

  • Relatively light agenda planned. The council will get an update from the city’s Emergency Preparedness Commission. Council members will also approve a new employee agreement for City Manager Steven Falk, which essentially extends the current agreement another three years. The agreement does not include salary information — the council decides that separately. The council will also vote on whether to essentially loan the city’s redevelopment agency $1 million from the “Insurance Fund,” which is part of the city’s reserves. A $1 million payment relating to the library means the RDA will be in the red by the time its bond payments are due in August, staff says. Agenda and staff reports here.

Lafayette School District Governing Board: Special meeting, 4 p.m. Monday, district offices, 3477 School St., Lafayette

  • The board will approve a new contract for Superintendent Fred Brill. Details are not available yet. Agenda here.

Acalanes Union High School District Governing Board: 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, 1212 Pleasant Hill Road, Lafayette

  • The board will approve its 2011-12 budget, which assumes flat funding for the upcoming school year but sets aside $1.8 million just in case the state does cut education further. The board will also decide whether to allow MetroPCS to install a cell tower at the Del Valle campus in Walnut Creek.


Lastly, a quick note on last week’s article about the Orinda school board’s response to the Wagner Ranch petition. I’ve received a couple inquires as to why the online version of the article drastically changed from the time it was first posted on Tuesday to when it was updated later in the week. The article was, for space reasons, heavily trimmed for Thursday’s paper, and those cuts were reflected on the web when the online version received its final update late Wednesday night. The full version of the article has been restored online and you can read it here.
