Agenda items of note:

CONSENT CALENDAR

#7. Adoption of a City Council Resolution Approving a Rate Increase requested by Contra Costa Waste Service, Inc. for the Operation of the Recycling Center and Transfer Station

Here we go again… as expected, the City Council plans to approve yet another rate increase in Pittsburg. Is it the last one? If the City Leaders can find some other rate to raise, it won’t be.  

#8, #9, #10. Pay and Benefits: the domino effect

In what can only be called a brilliantly devised game of dominos, City Leaders plan to approve (#8) salary increases for the AFSCME union employees . Then, in the spirit of fairness, (#9) City Manager will approve  corresponding Senior Executive Team and Management Group Salary changes, which will then automatically trigger (#10) any appropriate benefit adjustments for CALPERS recipients.

#11 Adoption of a City Council Resolution to Execute an Agreement for Special Counsel Services provided by Meyers, Nave, Riback, Silver & Wilson

With a sincere lack of confidence in the newly hired City Attorney, City Leaders decide they ALSO need to keep a full-sized Law Firm on retainer, “just in case.” Where there once was one… there now are many. 

Makes us wonder what giant litigation the City is anticipating…….
