Council votes on interim city manager
The Sacramento City Council will consider an employment agreement for Howard Chan as interim city manager. Chan has been selected to replace John Shirey, who informed the council that he would not be seeking a renewal of his contract, which ends Nov. 18. The council has begun a recruitment process for a permanent new city manager. Chan’s annual salary would be $262,627. The meeting begins at 6 p.m. at 915 I St.
Supervisors consider new parking fees
The Sacramento County Board of Supervisors is set to vote on a proposal to begin collecting parking fees on a 24-hour, seven-days-a-week basis at its garages, including the one in downtown Sacramento. The measure also would allow online parking reservations. The change from a Monday-to-Friday, day-hours operation would not affect county workers who use the downtown garage for work but would generate an additional $360,000 in revenue from people going to the new Golden 1 Center and other downtown events, according to a county staff report. The meeting begins at 9:30 a.m. at 700 H St.
