Menlo holds meeting on union contracts

by Sandy Brundage

Anyone interested in how union contracts are put together in Menlo Park may want to attend an informational meeting on Tuesday, April 23, at 7 p.m.

Sponsored by Councilman Ray Mueller the meeting comes just as the city starts a new round of negotiations, expected to take a couple months, with its employee unions on April 16. City Manager Alex McIntyre and Human Resources Director Gina Donnelly will attend to help answer questions.

Email Lee Duboc at if you plan to attend. The location for the meeting will be announced closer to the date.

Menlo Park school

is vandalized

Vandals didn't steal anything, but they left a calling card. Explicit graffiti spraypainted across the walls of La Entrada Middle School greeted Menlo Park police responding to a burglar alarm on Easter Sunday, March 31.

Officers also found a busted window and small fire set outside an interior office door, according to the police report. The unknown suspects caused approximately $2,000 in damage, police spokeswoman Nicole Acker said.

Volunteers sought

for rail board

The Peninsula Corridor Joint Powers Board needs volunteers for its advisory committee to represent San Francisco, San Mateo and Santa Clara counties. The nine-member group advises the board of directors on the needs of rail customers. It meets the third Wednesday of each month at 5:40 p.m. in San Carlos, one block from the San Carlos Caltrain Station.

Go to or call 508-6223 to get an application, which are due by Friday, May 3.
