Happy Independance Day!

Perhaps I’ll see you at the Piedmont parade and picnic. The chairs are lined up, blankets are laid out on the grass, and there is a wonderful calm morning before the parade begins. Enjoy!

Pre-parade calm - July 4 2011

 

Remember: bagpipes rule, bring sunscreen and water, and no garbage pickup today. Put your bins out tomorrow.

Agenda – Tuesday, July 5, 2011 City Council Meeting

Posted by Len Gilbert on July 1, 2011

The agenda and accompanying staff reports for the Tuesday, July 5, 2011 City Council meeting have been posted. Please see the Council’s web page at http://www.ci.piedmont.ca.us/citycouncil/ to access and download the documents.

Highlight: Item #5 on the regular agenda. Consideration of an offer, in principle, for the acquisition of library services from the City of Oakland for FY 10-11 and 11-12

The amount is $350,471, which seams reasonable. There is also a contingency in the staff report that the branches most frequented by Piedmonters remain open if there is to be a FY2012 payment. There is also a list of Piedmont patrons of Oakland libraries, broken out by branch.
