Tonight: Facebook, labor on Menlo agenda

 

With labor negotiations, lawsuits, and Facebook on its agenda, the Menlo Park City Council reconvenes on Tuesday, Oct. 18.

The evening is scheduled to start with a closed session at 5:30 p.m. to discuss negotiations with the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees labor union.

Following that, in open session, the council's agenda includes:

-- Setting aside $50,000 from general fund reserves to hire a law firm to defend Measure L, the pension reform initiative, against a lawsuit.

-- Appointing two council members to serve on a subcommittee to guide a development agreement for Facebook's new Menlo Park campus.

-- "Taming natural disasters" by way of approving an updated local hazard mitigation plan.

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