Good morning from Riverside. (Editor’s Note: He’s getting some archived court documents, not starting a new VOSD bureau or on vacation.)
A few quick hits today.
- The California Public Utilities Commission blocked a San Diego Gas & Electric plan to cut power to areas of San Diego’s backcountry when wildfires threaten. Yesterday’s move postpones what is likely to be a final decision on Sept. 10.
- Following up on a story from yesterday: San Diego County’s retirement board quickly approved a plan that could give the manager of its $6.3 billion portfolio more than $1 million in compensation next year. The salary would be more than managers of the state employees and teachers retirement funds, which are at least 18 times larger. The retirement board is still looking to fill the manager position.
- I reported a quick blog item on the city of San Diego’s lifeguards vote to leave the Municipal Employees Association and join the International Brotherhood of Teamsters.
- And the U-T’s opinion page applauds an appeals court decision to strike down a city of San Diego business tax processing fee.
