The public has greater access to public records now that the California Legislature has added requirements to the Ralph M. Brown Act, the state's open-meeting law.

Effective July 1, tax-supported agencies must specify on each meeting agenda the address where the public can review documents of the city, county, school district or special district.

    By the way, officer observer, just how would you know how taxpayer $ citizen got suspended? And just prove to me that I'm that same blogger. You sound like you're defending your own monster ego. Just what did the real taxpayer & citizen get suspended for? I don't think any of us will ever know since the blog apparently was too offensive for the editor to print so unless he told you or you are him how would you know officer observer?

    So, observer, how did you know he was doing a lot of the city business before? And why wouldn't he be doing that same business now? I demand you tell me how you know! LMAO

    observer, you're like a fart on a hot night, you never go away! Many are aware of the games that go on down town. Next you're going to tell us that Mr. Katzakian ddidn't know his own family was into real estate.

    There's goes the papercutting taxpayer again. I can assure you that Katzakian's printing company does no business with the City any longer. Any business he was doing with the City prior to his election went away when he was elected. These are the type of statements that got you suspended the first time.

    Printing all those extra copies and pamphlets keeps councilman Katzakian's printing business going overtime. Must be nice to get all those side jobs from city gob's referrals.

    Based on Ann Cerney's comments it seems as though the City has been implementing this practice already. An believe me....Ann would know.

    hey common etal, this is for the likes of you and your developer buddy and gob's that will no longer be able to sneak their own little addendas to council without being released to the public and not simply stored in Schwabauer and King's private vaults. No more peeking into those bids and allowing your local scab companies the awards after being allowed to lower theirs after seeing all the others and making that "adjustment".
