It’s time for Public Comment, our weekly take on the 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. 23, 2009.
  • City Council Supplemental Agenda, Nov. 23, 2009.
  • City Council Closed Agenda, Nov. 23, 2009.
  • Redevelopment Agency Agenda, Nov. 23, 2009.
  • City Council Agenda, Nov. 24, 2009.
  • City Council Supplemental Agenda, Nov. 24, 2009.

Notes: Council will meet Monday both at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. Monday’s supplemental agenda will address the city’s first quarter financial report. Tuesday’s supplemental agenda will address a city revenue commission.

Issues of Interest: The big news is not what’s on this week’s City Council agenda, but what isn’t. Tuesday, the Mayor’s Office is expected to release budget reduction proposals that are the city’s first concrete attempt to address its $200 million budget deficit for the coming fiscal year. Council is expected to weigh in formally at a meeting in December. The goal, according to a schedule released last month, is to make substantial cuts by mid-December.

City Council will prepare for these discussions by reviewing the city’s first quarter financial report on Monday evening, an item delayed from last week’s meeting. Read the report here and the Office of the Independent Budget Analyst’s take here.

A programming note: I will be out of town this week travelling to my homeland of cheesesteaks and honey. Also, there will be no “Agenda” in the morning. Please refer your questions, comments and derogatory remarks on the council docket or any City Hall issues to my colleague, Dagny Salas.

Email her or tweet her. And be kind.

Enjoy your Thanksgiving holiday.
