As the holiday season kicks into high gear, the Menlo Park City Council is taking a couple weeks off to prepare (and possibly recuperate). The council meetings for Nov. 22 and Nov. 29 have been canceled.
The next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, Dec. 6. At 5 p.m. the council will meet in closed session to review city manager applications, then during the regular meeting that starts at 7 p.m., will select a new mayor and vice mayor.
Kirsten Keith and Peter Ohtaki, as the newest members of the council, are first in line for those positions, since city policy dictates that those who have yet to hold the offices have priority.
