Good morning. Here’s what you need to know today, Tuesday, July 14.
Cool, warm, cool today?
The day is starting cool with a nice Delta breeze delivering air to the valley from the coast. The National Weather Service forecasts the day to warm into the low 90s in Sacramento. Hopefully, by the time the match between the Sacramento Republic and England’s Sunderland begins at 8 p.m., soccer fans won’t be sweating in the stands.
Board eyes water conservation programs
The Sacramento County Board of Supervisors will consider authorizing $1.2 million toward water conservation programs in the Sacramento County Water Agency service area. That includes $350,000 for incentive programs that pay residents to remove turf, upgrade their sprinklers or install a recirculating hot water system. The discussion is scheduled for 2:30 p.m, Sacramento County board chambers, 700 H St., Sacramento.
Sacramento Commons before City Council

Rocklin weighs downtown renewal project
The Rocklin City Council will consider purchasing a 14,000-square-foot parcel on Front Street across from St. Mary’s Chapel as part of a downtown renewal effort. The city is proposing to build a Front Street Plaza to accommodate street fairs and cultural events. The council meets at 6 p.m., council chambers, 3970 Rocklin Road, Rocklin.
