The November ballot remains incomplete as the San Diego City Council chose to either table or kill ballot propositions it was slated to consider today.

We already reported council postponing a decision on the pension reform proposal until the July 22 meeting.

Beyond that, Council voted 6-2 not to go forward with a measure that would increase salaries for the Mayor and Council members. And it postponed a proposal until next week’s meeting involving lease revenue from Mission Bay Park.

First the salary issue. Two proposals were on the table. One, sponsored by councilmen Tony Young and Jim Madaffer, would have linked councilmember salaries to those earned by Superior Court judges. The other, sponsored by Councilwoman Donna Frye, offered far more modest salary increases. Read here for more details.

Council, it seems, chose to go with none of the above in large part due to the public furor that erupted the last time mayor and Council member pay was an issue.
