Frank Goulart, Hayward Odd Fellows Sycamore Lodge #129, promoted the fraternal organization's free summer concert series at the Memorial Park (behind Hayward Plunge). Stay Away Joes, Trivalve and special guests will play rockabilly and surf revival on September 25.

Doug Ligibel, representing the Downtown Neighborhood Watch, thanked the City Manager for her written response to his request for how Measure A funding has been spent. He would like to know exactly how much utility users' tax revenue has been assigned to Hayward Police Department; a single figure will suffice. He also requested information about the city's plans for New Year's Eve given the illegal fireworks on July 4. The Grand Terrace Neighborhood has seen a three-fold increase in foreclosures since 2010. He thanked BART police officers for their help with the Downtown Neighborhood Watch Group.
