Today in Sacramento: Here’s what you need to know for Tuesday

Good morning. Here’s what you need to know today, Tuesday, Oct. 13.

No fall in the temps yet

Tuesday is expected to be the hottest day of the week with 95 degrees forecast for Sacramento. That follows a reading of 93 degrees on Monday. Get those errands done early and retreat to the air conditioning. Relief is on the way: low 80s by Friday.

Davis ponders Sports Complex Task Force

The Davis City Council will consider forming a Sports Complex Task Force that will look for ways to expand youth sports facility options in Davis. The city is hoping to provide more playing fields for leagues based in the city and to accommodate tournaments that will draw out-of-town visitors. The item is scheduled for 8:45 p.m., Community Chambers, 23 Russell Blvd., Davis.

Review set for county executive

The Sacramento County Board of Supervisors will meet in closed session to discuss a performance review for County Executive Officer Brad Hudson. The board meets at noon at 700 H St., Sacramento.

Vote on raise for city manager

The Sacramento City Council will vote on a 2 percent raise for City Manager John Shirey, based on his performance review. His salary would increase to $276,529, retroactive to Oct. 3. The City Council meeting starts at 6 p.m., City Hall Council Chambers, 915 I St., Sacramento.

Air board to study pollutants

Gov. Jerry Brown and Democratic leaders failed to secure a mandate to slice petroleum use in half, but the California Air Resources Board will look at the less discussed issue of short-term pollutants, which dissipate more quickly than carbon dioxide but are far more powerful. The category includes pollutants like fluorinated gases that can leak from fridges and air conditioners, black carbon that billows from forest fires and some older diesel engines, and methane generated by garbage piles. The agency will discuss its strategy during a 10 a.m. workshop at Cal/EPA headquarters, Byron Sher Auditorium, 1001 I St., Sacramento.

Things to do

  • The Kandinsky Effect, a post-modern jazz trio, will perform at the Sacramento State School of Music. The event starts at 8 p.m., Capistrano Concert Hall, Sacramento State. Tickets are $10 general admission, $7 for seniors, $5 for students and free for Sacramento State music students.
  • The McKinley Library will have a screening of “Just Eat It: A Food Waste Story.” The film examines society’s focus on expiration dates, perfect-looking produce and portion sizes. 6 p.m., 601 Alhambra Blvd., Sacramento.
