City Council Approves Committee Assignments; Finishes in 18 Minutes

The San Leandro City Council began the year with what may have been its shortest meeting ever: 18 minutes. The January 2, 2007, meeting was presided over by new Mayor Tony Santos and included new Councilmembers Michael Gregory and Diana Souza.

During public comments, Joe Collier, a former Planning Commissioner, invited Councilmember Diana Souza to attend a meeting of his homeowners association.

The consent calendar consisted largely of administrative tasks related to establishing speed limits, approving amendments to the bylaws of San Leandro's Parking Authority, Public Financing Authority, and Redevelopment Agency.

The main order of business was to approve the assignments to internal committees and intergovernmental agencies. Mayor Santos and Vice Mayor Surlene Grant were appointed to an ad-hoc committee to develop interview questions for the District 6 City Council applicants. The full committee assignments are listed below.

Vice Mayor Grant asked that the meeting be adjourned in memory of Carter Gilmore, who was a member of the Oakland City Council and was active in the NAACP. Mayor Santos noted that he had served with Gilmore during his first term on the City Council.

Councilmember Joyce Starosciak said she felt that there were more houses displaying holiday lights and specifically noted Chapel Ct. and Elko Ct.

Mayor Santos adjourned the meeting in the memory of former President Gerald Ford, Rosetta Rosinga, and Carter Gilmore.
