It appears that our MacMansions will not get matching MacServices. Even their friends are unwilling to buy them MacSewers, MacPoliceStations, MacLibraries.
These are orphaned projects.
Stanford Medical Center will need MacServices. In fact, it already does, and Palo Alto will not pay for them.
Perhaps it's time to consider separating Stanford services? Could they possibly administer their services less effectively and efficiently than the City now does?

I suspect those who pushed the storm drain tax got their storm drains in their street (new ones to replace the old as there was some water on their street when it rained) and now --to H with everyone else.
The mayor dosen't run the city. The council majority (developer backed and live in N.Palo Alto enclaves) dicides where the city is headed and does. (New "Heritage Park--and Clark building---$10, to 20 million). and tunnel under r r tracks to nowhere)
A new Mitchell Park library and community center bldg is needed, but the police building is over sized and gold plated and is proposed in a terrible, isolated location. N.Palo Alto has a "main library,fancy art center, theater and community center and childrens library.
S. Palo Alto has a old, small library, small bldg next to it and a old run down Cubberly bldgs that are used by Foothills college and other private groups.??

Congratulation Palo Alto Weekly for having the guts to print the weblinks of October 2nd, mostly from "Knowledge, support low for Palo Alto Bond Measures", and for encouraging "free speech" and the free flow of ideas in Palo Alto.
At last we have a forum where Palo Altans can be open and express their views I hope our Staff and City Council will read and take note. And, I hope this will encourage others to step forward and express themselves pro or con in a helpful and constructive manner.
