Some Menlo Park city officials are cramming before the holidays, with a series of meetings scheduled during the next couple weeks. Tonight, the City Council faces a lengthy agenda.
Items slated for discussion at the Dec. 10 council meeting include:
● Eliminating street parking on a segment of Laurel Street.
● Approval of a new contract with salary and health benefit increases for the approximately 34 city managers and supervisors represented by the American Federation of State, Municipal and City Employees.
● A study session to peruse four potential replacements for the city's current logo, which was first designed in the 1960s, according to the staff report. The new designs, all variations on a tree created at a cost of $30,000 to date, are part of Menlo Park's attempt to rebrand itself with a more modern image.
Following a closed session for negotiation with the police officers' union and Service Employees International Union at 6 p.m., the regular council meeting starts at 7 p.m. in council chambers at the Civic Center at 701 Laurel St. Click here to review the agenda and associated staff reports.
