Over a month ago, the Santa Clara City Council approved a legal settlement for a couple of the 49ers lawsuits. But the 49er Five refused requests to do it in open session. So no one knows if it’s a good deal or bad deal for Santa Clara.
Former Councilmember Teresa O’Neill hopes to change that. She filed a petition on Sept. 20 asking the Council for: Public Review of the Settlement Agreement and Mutual Release dated August 31, 2022 between the City of Santa Clara, the Santa Clara Stadium Authority, and the 49er Football Team Entities.
Interestingly, Vice Mayor Suds Jain filed a petition six days after O’Neill’s. On Sept. 26, Jain is asking to: Set a Study/Briefing Session for the Public in which the Terms of the Settlement Agreement are Discussed as well as Presentation of Sources of Revenues, to include an explanation of the Waterfall through which Money Flows as well as the Rate at which the various Loans are being Paid Off.
Tomorrow should be a brief meeting. Santa Clarans are tired of watching meetings linger into the late night or early morning hours.
