At the Feb. 7 meeting, Councilor Sally Mayer's bill funding five more animal control officers to staff the just-passed "dangerous dog" ordinance passed unanimously.
A vote on the yearly capital implementation cleanup bill was deferred after Councilor Miguel Gomez objected to amendments proposed by Councilors Debbie O'Malley and Eric Griego. One Griego amendment specified that a velodrome approved last year by voters be built before a BMX track that was added later to the project. Griego said building the BMX track first was a bait and switch on voters. But the big issues of the night concerned just who gets to mess up whose neighborhood.
