Good morning from Hillcrest.

  • A light day in San Diego political news, yesterday. Perhaps people were still recovering from sugar hangovers. We’ll lead off with more Chargers stadium news. Elected officials from five North County cities gathered to develop a regional plan that puts the Chargers stadium in Escondido and has related development spread among Escondido, Oceanside, Carlsbad, Vista and San Marcos. Those who attended said the meeting went well.
  • The state Legislature is nearing a deal to reshape California’s water policy. San Diego County officials, including city Mayor Jerry Sanders, are applauding. City estimates are that households will have to pay an additional $48 per year on their water utility bills to pay the local share of a $7 billion to $10 billion canal project.
  • Conservative blog, SDRostra.Com has two posts of note. A La Mesa City Councilman has changed his mind and is not going to run against Dianne Jacob for County Supervisor in 2012. It also reports that embattled Poway City Councilwoman Betty Rexford has left the Republican Party.
  • Some city of San Diego pension news. The city won a lawsuit yesterday that denies paramedics pension payments based on their overtime instead of their 40-hour-per-week wages. City Attorney Jan Goldsmith says the ruling closed the door on the potential of further lawsuits brought city workers on this issue.
  • And in Encinitas, the city ended a stalemate with its Chamber of Commerce.
