Good morning. Here’s what you need to know today, Tuesday, July 7.
Cool weather? Goooaaaall!
The day is starting cool and the evening should be the same. A Delta breeze overnight cooled temperatures in Sacramento into the low 60s. The breeze should start churning again tonight when Chivas Guadalajara takes on Club Leon at the re-configured for soccer Raley Field in West Sacramento.
Davis to discuss tax increase
The Davis City Council will discuss the possibility of asking voters to approve a utility users’ tax on the June 2016 ballot. The city’s staff has proposed a 5.5 percent rate and suggested the tax would apply to electricity and gas. If applied only to those two services, the tax would raise about $2.7 million annually. The council meets at 5:30 p.m. at Community Chambers, 23 Russell Blvd., Davis.
Education leaders to look at college transfer program
University of California President Janet Napolitano and California Community Colleges Chancellor Brice W. Harris will join other education leaders in Davis to discuss a new transfer program for community college students to transfer to UC campuses.
Woodland to weigh camping ordinance
The Woodland City Council will consider an ordinance that more specifically would restrict sleeping in public places, in an attempt to address homeless camping in the Yolo County community. The proposal would make it illegal for someone to set up “provisions for the purpose of camping” even if the person does not spend a full night at a public location. The City Council meets at 6 p.m. at the Woodland Council Chambers, 300 First St., Woodland.
