Good afternoon from Point Loma.

I got a late start on The Agenda today because I had some morning meetings. Here’s your P.M. news update.

  • We’ll lead with a report from the San Diego City Auditor on the more than $4 million in development fees the city has failed to collect. That would seem to be one way to help out the $200 million budget deficit. The U-T reports.
  • We blog about proposed civilian job cuts in the city’s police department. The union says that some positions on the chopping block create revenue because employees write parking tickets and detect code violations. The Mayor’s Office says more money is saved by eliminating the jobs.
  • Our own Rob Davis writes about the Airport Authority board’s decision not to cap expense reimbursements for employees though earlier it decided to cap its own expenses.
  • I have a guest blogger in The Hall, a La Jolla high student, giving his thoughts on the city’s budget deficit.
  • The U-T’s opinion page says “no” to the recall of an Oceanside city councilman.
  • Last, here’s our weekly Public Comment feature. Lots of interesting items on the City Council agenda, including the vote for next year’s council president.
