Public Comment
Councilman Mark Salinas attended an Alameda County Redistricting Committee meeting at which he learned that boundary changes could split the City of Hayward between districts. He secured Council's support to consider the county's proposals at the June 14, 2011, council meeting.

Councilman Bill Quirk remarked on the city's pride to be able to host a distinguished delegation, whose members were introduced, from Ghazni, one of Hayward's sister cities, and from central government in Kabul, Afghanistan. Mayor Sweeney presented a Proclamation congratulating Ghazni on being selected as an Asian Capital of Islamic Civilization for 2013.

Charlie Peters, Clean Air Performance Professionals, drew attention to California SB 94 which has delayed processing of DMV renewal notices until July 1, 2011. Renewal notices must be paid within 30 days of issue. Not only is the smog check industry likely to be impacted by the backlog of vehicles, an estimated 25 percent of smog check businesses are suffering from the enforced downturn created by SB 94.

Mayor Sweeney commented on an email received from an Eldridge Ave. resident and the difficulties with the overpass. Council agreed to discuss the matter as an agenda item on June 14, 2011.

Councilman Salinas announced the start of "Let's Do Lunch Hayward" which will last from June 13 until August 12, 2011.
