Sorry for the lack of updates. This week has really gone fast.
Reminder: Friday is Furlough Friday. Make sure you get any utility bills, library books and stops by the Animal Shelter taken care of today.
Today I wrote a story about Jane Lea withdrawing her petition to http://www.lodinews.com/articles/2009/08/27/news/3_lea_090827.txt#feedback" target="_blank">limit non-union manager salaries because she needs to rework it. She received feedback on possible legal challenges from a law firm the city hired to review the initiative.
Here are some of the main documents:
Lea's original measure (that she has withdrawn): http://www.lodinews.com/blogs/citybuzz/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/city_pay_cap1.pdf"> City_Pay_Cap
City Attorney Steve Schwabauer's summary of the initiative (he is required by state law to draft the summary): http://www.lodinews.com/blogs/citybuzz/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/salary-initiative-final-2.pdf"> Salary-Initiative-Final
