When the Open Government Commission was formed in 2008, it was comprised of three council members who were tasked with ensuring citizens receive greater access to public information.
Rough 49ers loss. This made matters worse: having to listen to Joe Buck on the TV broadcast. He's unfathomably annoying. Can't Sony or another leading edge TV manufacturer figure out a way to put the AM radio in the TV tuner and sync up the broadcast so you can watch the game and tune into the local radio broadcasting team? Perhaps some bright techie type in audience land has solved this problem. If so, let me know so I can pass on the good news and help stop the Buck stop here.
A proposed sewer fee hike isn't the only item up for debate at Monday's 6 p.m. Gilroy City Council meeting.
New Year's Day in Gilroy 72 degrees ... so strange, next thing you know I'll start to like rap music or, heaven forbid, duh Raiders. Naw. Weird weather, though, freezing nights - like 25 degrees on the westside for nights in a row - and zippo on the December rain meter. And on the horizon 'tis clear skies. Good for golf tee times, but lousy for ski resorts.
• Both! I'd propose a two-year term for residents and a one-year rotation of councilmembers. I'd like to see results like: city checkbook posted on line; city blog for ongoing conversation; simple reporting of campaign donations; polls/reviews like the big citywide one that some departments have acted on; open conversation with residents about what the city could/should be doing.
