Below is a summary of what is due to occur at this week's Council meeting.

The La Mesa City Council will hear a staff report on the city's climate protection actions. The report will include a synopsis of the a resolution passed in 2007 endorsing the U.S. Mayor's Climate Protection Agreement. Staff will list any and all new updates to the agreement from the previous year, including what has been done in the areas of global warming emissions related to city operations, land use policies, transportation, clean energy, energy efficiency, appliance efficiency, green building designs, fleet fuel efficiency, wastewater treatment, public education, and recycling. 

In other items:

Some La Mesa streets will be getting repaved, as the council will move to approve awarding a bid to American Asphalt South, Inc., for the purpose of maintaining streets, sealing cracks, and applying rubberized slurry coating to various streets around the city, as part of the city's pavement maintenence program. The company was the lowest responsive and responsible bidder. The contract amount for the year is for about $645,000.

The council will also move to approve a resolution that would temporarily close off streets along, and some adjacent to, the parade route for the 2012 La Mesa Flag Day Parade, which will occur Saturday, June 2. The resolution calls for a closure from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the date of the parade.

Why doesn't separation of church and state apply to Anti-humanism?

I hope the "Forward" thinking Madrid scheduled all the road repairs, in the business and commercial areas, to happen in the middle of the night. Otherwise we may perish from the extra pollution from the gridlocked automobiles.

When you're battling something that's not real you can do anything and claim it's having a positive effect. And nobody can prove otherwise.

But taking weekend getaways (always, of course, ostensibly dedicated to some nominally "lofty" public issue like global warming; but, in fact, little more than opportunities to wine and dine on the taxpayer's dime) is what Art does best. You don't want to ruin his fun, do you?
