Tonight: Menlo council meeting

Pools, drought, and labor on the agenda

Back from a two-week hiatus, the Menlo Park City Council resumes pondering existential matters such as swimming pools, how public labor negotiations should be conducted, and drought planning, at its next meeting on Tuesday, March 1.

If the council members stick to the agenda, the end of the meeting will see a new contract awarded to Team Sheeper to operate the Burgess and Belle Haven pools, after months of acrimonious negotiations between the city, Team Sheeper, and SOLO, a nonprofit competitive youth swim team over pool access. For once, bargaining with unions may seem like a refreshing change of pace.

The council meeting starts at 7 p.m. at the Civic Center at 701 Laurel St.
