Anyone expecting the City's new website to have the rich historical trove of the old is sorely disappointed at this stage. City Council history has been reduced to three meetings and unfilled spaces for the last two years. Searches on critical issues of the last few years produced nothing.
This morning I had a simple question: How far has the city come in pegging starting police salaries at 85% of comparable cities? I recall City Council having discussions on this topic under City Managers Tom Adams and Harold Dominguez. Fortunately, I had a former police chief to contact. He's aging, but his mind is a treasure trove. I considered the City's former website in a similar vein. It's gone for now.
