Nothing happened at the last Council Meeting. Perkins and Livingstone were absent, and the Council needed 4/5 majority to vote on the Emergency Massage Ordinance they were considering. That's the one to postpone issuing massage permits to evaluate the State's new licensing law.
I don't write a single article on the Council Meetings any more. Instead I write separate articles on individual issues and presentations. I'm past due on writing up Tuesday's meeting. The San Ramon and Danville Libraries are once again sponsoring City Read: "Two Cities, One Book." The book this year is Sarah Vowell's "Assassination Vacation," which will be handed out at the three library branches and several local businesses. Ms. Vowell will be at the Dougherty Valley Center on October 17 at 7 pm.
Steven Lao from the San Ramon Presbyterian Church announced the Church's annual Building Bridges day on also on October 17. That's when hundreds of volunteers gather at the Church near the Post Office, and spread out around San Ramon, and now Dublin, to clear brush from yards and do other safety and cleanup jobs for the elderly, disabled, single parents, and now soldiers at Camp Parks.
One speaker in Public Comment introduced a new program you might be interested in (or already know about), the Contra Costa County Climate Leaders Program. This organization is trying to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in each of the cities in Contra Costa County. Vice Mayor Dave Hudson said that San Ramon is already doing everything they want. I'll await your reply on that one.
