I am glad to see that the City Council are addressing the major issues facing our city. Of course our city council members can spend hours on "self-congratulations and self-important comments". I am sure they see themselves as shining examples of how city government should be run.
i find it hard to believe that any other city would want to do things the way Palo Alto does.

I take it that my suggestion, that they cancel all travel and attend only conferences that are teleconferences got short, or no shrift. We had a failed leader of the Utility department whose partial alabi was that he spent half his time traveling on utility business. If we send any more people out, I want them equipped with helmet cam to run whenever they are in public, the contents to be made a public record when they return.

I suppose City Council Members do discuss things other than what has been stated above plus the need to change the name of Oregon Expressway or name something in Palo Alto after someone as a sign of honoring them. When are they going to get down to something useful like building up our retail base, or sorting out problems with drains, sewers, etc? These are the real issues of our city and only when it seems that these are being dealt with will our community feel that we have a City Council honoring those who elected them into this elevated "self-congratulatory and self-important" position.
