Something a little different in “Public Comment” this week. We’re leading off with the issue of interest and then linking to the agendas afterward.

Issue of Interest: City Council will consider giving bid preferences to small and local businesses make local subcontractor participation mandatory for major city public works projects at Monday afternoon’s meeting. Draft guidelines for the program say it would help erase disparities for minority and women contractors. The city’s history on this issue isn’t sterling, as this CityBeat story shows.
