Leave it to me to miss just about all of a City Council meeting that was over in a half-hour.
1) The council voted in favor of going from four meetings a month to three meetings a month. Best decision they’ve made all year. Also maybe the only decision they’ve made all year, which is why they’ll be meeting less frequently.
2) The council is sending a letter — certified mail, if there’s money left in the budget — to Jerry Brown, Alameda County and the City of Union City expressing their indignation over the tree removals along Niles Canyon Road.
3) The council adjourned in honor of Alan Heyman, a Niles slip cover maker and community guy, who died of cancer last week. Earlier today folks in Niles held a memorial for Heyman at the plaza, which for which he had advocated.
