City Council Informational, 4 PM

We are finally getting an update on the Village on the River Project (maybe they will tell us where they are hiding the liquor license?)

We are also getting a presentation on the council’s trip the National League of Cities conference in LA. It will be followed by a slideshow by Councilor Selberg of pictures he took in LA in front of exotic cars.

City Council Regular Meeting, 7 PM

Item #28, 2nd Reading, Ordinance to eliminate city drone regulations (FAA has it’s own regs). Like 5G, it seems the Feds have a say in this matter. While I understand the FAA controlling airspace, who protects our privacy on the ground? Also, if there no longer is city drone regs, who will enforce the FAA regs? Who do you call if you see a violation? Good question. Will our local police be mandated to enforce FEDERAL regs?

Item #36, 1st Reading, Ordinance to restructure the Audit Committee. Here’s a concept, why don’t we hire some permanent people and get the department functioning again at full capacity.

Item #43, Resolution, Authorize using a Construction Manager at Risk for new Water Reclamation Expansion. Interesting the city is authorizing the use of CMAR, and lining up Bond Counsel, yet we have hired NO ONE to actually build the place.

Item #44, Resolution, Revisiting the street vacation for Lifescape in the VA neighborhood. I found this line interesting;

Testimony in support of said petition has been heard, and no opposition hereto was voiced.

Is the neighborhood aware they are trying to sneak this back in?

FYI – Village on the River purchased a liquor license from a nearby establishment who’s financial analysis found it would be more profitable for them to sell it, than to retain it. City was not part of the negotiations.

How about backing off about Selberg and exotic cars? LA is all about cars. It’s their notariety. They have no mass transit. The smog is so bad that the only picture you can see is a close up with a car. If he’s guilty of anything, it would be not wearing a mask for safe breathing.

When is zoning going to get some drones? I have a neighbor I want them to spy on. His new plastic fence is suspicious… 😉

As far as Councilman Marshall’s blue time machine, I don’t think we have much to worry about unless we catch him in the future at 3am trying to hook it up to the Arc of Dreams in hopes of obtaining 1.21 gigawatts, however….

There’s a device you can aim at drones. It sends an interference signal causing the drone to go crazy and crash. It’s not considered illegal yet.

Is selberg one of those rich people who can afford fancy cars.
