Good morning from Hillcrest.
- I had a whole section of City Council chambers to myself yesterday as the city’s 2011 budget hearings began with little fanfare. I’ll have at least one budget-related dispatch today.
- City Council also discussed a revised five-year financial outlook yesterday with projected deficits ranging from $72.5 million next year to $48.1 million in 2015.
- Plans for a permanent homeless shelter downtown were delayed at a City Council committee hearing yesterday following protests from nearby residents.
- I still have plenty of questions about San Diego and its involvement in Indian landfills per my story early this week. Help me answer them and think of some more.
- Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and local state Sen. Dennis Hollingsworth introduced a bill with new pension rules for new state employees.
- Last here’s my appearance on NBC to discuss a city of San Diego resident survey. In brief, residents like trash pickup, outsourcing and police and fire, but don’t care for the condition of their streets.
