Whether the town should resume booking events in Holbrook-Palmer Park is among the items on the agenda when Atherton's City Council meets Wednesday, Dec. 21, at 7 p.m. in the Council Chambers at 94 Ashfield Road in Atherton.

The council will also discuss some of the details of the plan for a new library in the park, including the footprint of the proposed building, the reuse of the existing library building, and changes in the master plan for the park.

Also on the agenda: Whether the town's Environmental Programs Committee should be disbanded; extending the contract of Interim City Manager John Danielson; a contract with interim finance director Debra Auker, who was hired Dec. 9 and will be paid $112 per hour; the selection of a new mayor and vice mayor; and final approval of new garbage and recycling rates.
