Lemon Grove’s City Council meets on Tuesday, November 5. This week, the agenda includes proposed locations for a dog park, an expert panel on community gardens, and a report on economic development challenges and opportunities in Lemon Grove.
San Diego Supervisors meet on both Tuesday and Wednesday. On Tuesday, November 5, the agenda includes proposals to streamline adoption procedures, obtain competitive bids for physical and mental health services and crisis counseling, and award a construction contract for the probation department’s juvenile ranch facility and Camp Barrett staff housing. Supervisors will also consider approving in principle purchase of property for a future fire station on Palomar Mountain.
On Wednesday, November 6, Supervisors will hold public hearings on several East County issues. These include creation of underground utility districts in Lakeside and Ramona, as well as aviation leases at Gillespie Field and Borrego Airport. Acquisition of open space for Otay Valley Regional Park is also on Wednesday’s agenda.
Looking ahead, on November 12, El Cajon’s Council will be deciding who it will appoint to replace former Mayor Mark Lewis, who resigned for health reasons following a controversy over ethnic remarks that he made.
