Tonight: HSR, Prop. 23 on Menlo council agenda

 

High-speed rail, never out of the public eye for long in Menlo Park, reappears on the City Council's agenda for tonight's meeting. The council will consider hiring Capitol Advocates for $80,000 to represent the city's interests on legislative, regulatory, and high-speed rail issues.

Council members will also decide whether to formally oppose Proposition 23, a statewide initiative that would stop enforcing greenhouse gas emission laws until unemployment drops to 5.5 percent or lower for an entire year.

And just in time for the last council meeting before the Nov. 2 elections, staff will share a quarterly financial review of Menlo Park's General Fund. The audience can expect some rousing discussion of the city's $1.3 million revenue shortfall.

The meeting begins at 7 p.m. in council chambers at the Civic Center (701 Laurel St.).
