If you like to keep track of current events in Encinitas this week's city council meeting will have something for you:
Mid-year review of Fiscal Year 2007-08 Operating Budgets and Update on the City's Financial Condition (Sales Tax revenue is down, development fees are down, property taxes are stable....for now.)
Capital Improvement Program status report and recommended mid-year program funding adjustments. For my friends in Cardiff, this also includes a request for $100,000 to provide matching funds to FINALLY fix the seeping alley behind VG donuts.
Applicants for various commission appointments will speak to the council, including the applicants for the newly formed Environmental Advisory Commission. There are 17 applying but only 7 seats. It also includes the Planning Commission seats for New Encinitas, Leucadia and Olivenhain. All the incumbents have re-applied but there are also new applicants for the Leucadia and Olivenhain seats.
*Leucadia overwhelming supports keeping Gene Chapo and a big NO to the return of Alice Jacobson.

***Attention married guys, a reminder that Thursday is Valentine's Day. (Valentine's Day is a fake holiday invented by the greeting card companies but try telling that to your wife. Visit the new Paper Rose location on Vulcan Ave in Leucadia if you know what is good for you.
