It’s time for Public Comment, our weekly take on the upcoming San Diego City Council agenda. We link to all the agendas, briefly highlight an issue and invite readers to weigh in with their thoughts.

  • City Council Agenda, Nov. 9, 2009.
  • City Council Closed Agenda, Nov. 9, 2009.
  • City Council Agenda, Nov. 10, 2009.
  • Redevelopment Agency Agenda, Nov. 10, 2009.

Issues of Interest: Monday will be the resumption of negotiations with two of the city’s labor unions on its outsourcing program. In closed session, City Council will direct negotiators on how to proceed per labor impasse rules.

An interesting sidebar to this whole process also plays out on Monday. In open session, City Council is scheduled to approve the city’s team for contract negotiations with its labor unions next year. That team is made up of Mayor’s Office representatives, but for the first time will include members of the Office of the Independent Budget Analyst as “observers.” The change could indicate that council wants to play a more direct role in labor negotiations.
