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

City Council will hear midtown tower appeal

The Sacramento City Council will hear an appeal by residents who oppose a proposed 15-story mixed-use building called Yamanee that would tower over midtown’s leafy grid. The proposed 178-foot-tall structure at 25th and J streets – with 134 condos, parking and commercial space – would become midtown’s tallest residential structure. City planning commissioners have already approved it, and city planners have recommended that council members deny the appeal by preservationists. The council meets at 6 p.m. in its City Hall chambers, 915 I St., Sacramento.

San Juan district mulls later start to school day

San Juan Unified School District trustees will discuss whether to delay the start of secondary schools. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that high schools and middle schools start at 8:30 a.m. or later, but San Juan’s high schools generally start between 7:30 and 8 a.m. Research suggests that delayed school start times allow students to get more sleep and perform better in class. The board is scheduled to discuss the issue at 7:30 p.m., 3738 Walnut Ave., Carmichael.

Sacramento County supervisors vote on 30-year tax measure

The Sacramento County Board of Supervisors will vote on placing a 30-year sales tax on the ballot to fund transportation projects. The tax is equal to a half-cent on the dollar. The sales tax would need to be approved by two-thirds of voters in November. The board is scheduled to take up the item at 10 a.m., Board of Supervisors Chambers, 700 H St., Sacramento.

River Cats vs. Grizzlies

The Sacramento River Cats will take on the Fresno Grizzlies at Raley Field, 400 Ballpark Drive, West Sacramento. Tuesday is family-value day with cut-priced hot dogs and desserts. Tickets cost $10 to $63. The game starts at 7:05 p.m.
