City Council Preview: Long Agenda Includes Requests from Residents Including Former City Attorney Brian Doyle

By Robert Haugh

Tomorrow’s Santa Clara City Council meeting has a long agenda. The interesting items are being proposed by residents including one by former City Attorney Brian Doyle.

Here’s hoping the meeting ends before midnight. It’s highly unlikely. But that would be highly unusual for this City Council. A lot of them like to talk without getting to the point. Some of them don’t even read the City Staff reports.  

Here’s a list of some of items:

  • Study Session: Review of the Proposed FY 2022/23 & FY 2023/24 Biennial Capital Improvement Program Budget and FY 2022/23 Operating Budget Changes and Review of Proposed FY 2022/23 Municipal Fee Schedule Changes to Library Community Room Rental Fees
  • Presentation of 2022 City of Santa Clara/Silicon Valley Power Scholarships
  • Recognition of Local Organizations for Donations to Support City’s COVID-19 Pandemic Response

  1. The public portions of the council meetings need to start earlier. 10pm starts are ridiculous. They make it so people working regular hours can’t watch and participate.

  2. Looking forward to see where this goes.
    “Action on a Written Petition, Submitted by Doyle, to Place an Agenda Item at a Future Council Meeting to Discuss an Explanation by Councilmember Kevin Park of the Apparent Inconsistent Statements in Official Filings Regarding His Employment and Sources of Income”

    • Agreed.
      Probably nowhere.
      Park’s buddies will shoot it down.
      Pay attention Santa Clara.
      What is this clown hiding?
      Gov’t is a joke to him.
      No respect.
      Probably a socialist.
