Public Comment
Doug Ligibel thanked his wife, DeDe, Mayor Sweeney and Director of Maintenance Services Matt McGrath for persuading Caltrans to swiftly resolve graffiti vandalism to signs at the I-92/Calaroga Ave. over-pass. Crime in Downtown Hayward continues to depress property values. The past 30 days have seen five new foreclosures within 30 seconds of Ligibel's home, adding to the existing repossessions in the neighborhood. He is concerned about the future loss of seven sworn police officers, as per the FY 2012 budget, and has requested a FY 2010-11 expenditure report for Measure A Utility Users' Tax from the City Manager who has already provided FY 2009-10 revenue figures; Measure A's intent was to maintain public safety and retain sworn police officers.

Charlie Peters, Clean Air Performance Professionals, thanked Council for its support over the issues of corn ethanol in gasoline and PZEVs.
