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

Good morning. Here’s what you need to know today, Tuesday, Nov. 17:

Don’t forget the SPF 30

Sunscreen rather than an umbrella would be apropos for the remainder of the week. Sunny weather is forecast through the weekend as the Sacramento region enjoys a stretch of rainless fall days. The high temperature on Tuesday is expected to be 63 degrees.

Council mulls Curtis Park Village tweak

The Sacramento City Council is scheduled to consider a controversial Safeway fuel center proposed for the retail section of Curtis Park Village. The Sierra Curtis Neighborhood Association continues to oppose the gas station. Developer Paul Petrovich and Safeway have submitted an updated plan to the city that would move the gas station farther away from the development’s new housing. The council meets in open session starting at 6 p.m., City Hall Council Chamber, 915 I St., Sacramento.

Transitional housing plan on agenda

The Sacramento City Council will also consider committing $600,000 toward the St. John’s Program for Real Change for an expansion project that would add 30 transitional housing units at its existing Jackson Road facility. The program serves up to 180 women and children at risk of homelessness. The council is scheduled to consider the item after the fuel center discussion.

County to introduce inspector general

Sacramento County will announce its new selection for inspector general. The Office of Inspector General is responsible for evaluating law enforcement, custodial and security services. The office investigates complaints against the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department. Board of Supervisors Chairman Phil Serna, Sheriff Scott Jones and County Executive Brad Hudson will be on hand to announce the new inspector general at 1:30 p.m., 700 H St., Sacramento.

Woodland to weigh sales tax extension

The Woodland City Council will consider asking its staff to explore options extending a local sales tax equal to a half-cent on the dollar. That sales tax was approved in 2006 and is set to expire at the end of September 2018. The City Council meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m., Council Chambers, 300 First St., Woodland.
