Good morning from City Hall.

  • We’ll lead off today with opinions on the proposal for a new permanent city of San Diego homeless shelter. A City Council committee addresses the issue today, but the Union-Tribune editorial page has serious questions about the deal. CityBeat questions the funding.
  • KPBS highlights a survey of San Diego residents, which we referenced in a story last week, showing that San Diegans are concerned about the condition of their streets and believe that outsourcing is an answer to the city’s budget woes.
  • We have a couple follow ups to our story on the city’s subsidy of golf courses and homeowners associations’ reclaimed water rates. The Mayor’s Office responded to some questions, but not a key one. The office also took issue with a draft study we cited.
  • We also have some follow ups to our project on San Diego County’s social service programs. A federal review of the programs says that civil rights training for food stamp workers has been “inconsistent.” The county responds to the review and says it “reflects a system in flux.”
  • A La Jolla charity is stepping up to pay for some of the city’s fire pits, which are on the chopping block.
  • A state agency is critical of safety levels at Qualcomm Stadium following an investigation of a worker’s death last fall. 
  • CityBeat takes a close look at City Council President Ben Hueso’s campaign contributions for his state Assembly race.
