Good morning from Hillcrest.
- We’ll lead off today with my bizarre story about a former city of San Diego official who signed the city up to invest in Indian landfills apparently without the knowledge of his superiors. No joke.
- Yesterday saw San Diego’s City Council take a big step forward on the downtown schoobrary, authorizing a lease with the San Diego Unified School District for a charter school on the main library’s upper floors. Bigger news — how much the project will cost — is coming soon.
- There’s plenty of news on a new Los Angeles football stadium proposal. I round it up and talk about how the news affects the Chargers.
- A federal review of San Diego County food stamp policy is critical of the county’s efforts.
- The city embarked on a $47 million road improvement effort yesterday, described by the Mayor’s Office as “a project of what might be unprecedented scope in city history.”
- A state bill that would restrict a city’s ability to file for bankruptcy is moving forward over the opposition of cities like San Diego.
- A pension reform plan in Orange County — that city of San Diego officials here have discussed as a model — is facing a hurdle from the Internal Revenue Service.
