The Atherton City Council will consider Wednesday a resolution putting the town government on record as opposing the California high-speed rail project as currently configured.
The stated reasons for the council's opposition include "heavy criticism" of the agency running the project, overly optimistic sources of funding for the project, and rising costs.
The agenda includes a multi-page letter to the California Congressional delegation and the Federal Railroad Administration.
The council meets at 7 p.m. in the council chambers at 94 Ashfield Road in Atherton.
