Ed Bogue advised Southgate Area Homeowners Association will host a Candidates Night for Hayward City Council on Wednesday, May 2, 2012, 7-9 p.m. at Christ's Community Church, 25927 Kay Avenue (at Calaroga Ave.)

The City Clerk's office is accepting applications to serve on the Hayward Youth Commission. To qualify, students must be between 13 and 20 years old and live in the City of Hayward or within the boundaries of the Hayward Unified School District. The deadline for applications is 5:00 p.m., Wednesday, May 16, 2012. Application forms are available in the Office of the City Clerk, 777 B Street, Hayward, by calling (510) 583-4400 between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday or can be downloaded from the City's website at www.hayward-ca.gov/citygov/citycomm.shtm

Frank Goulart thanked Miriam Lens and the City Clerk's Office for their help with a research project. He would like the crosswalk restored at Foothill Blvd. and Russell Way. He cited Ted Kennedy's Visual Artists Rights Act 1990 which protects artist's work in public places from where it cannot be removed without the artist's permission. The City's Mural Program includes its own contractual agreements with artists but murals/public art that pre-date the Mural Program should be covered by federal law

Doug Ligibel thanked Hayward PD, California Highway Patrol and Alameda County Sheriff for dealing effectively with a hostage situation at Wells Fargo Bank on A Street on April 24, 2012. In the past 10 days, Bank of America foreclosed on four properties within 50 ft. of his home. They were originally purchased for $475,000 - $500,000 and are now listed for $190,000 though are likely to sell for less. The City Manager, current Council and, as from June 2012, new Council must grapple with substantially reduced property tax revenue. This could lead to dramatic reductions in City staffing, including fire and police. The foreclosure situation in the Downtown area has worsened since 2011 and could deteriorate further in 2013. He would like the City to help minimize the number of foreclosures. The City manager's office will contact Bank of America for more information

Jim Drake encouraged everyone to visit the ARCO gas station, which is usually the first to reduce prices, on Jackson Street

Beverly Reliford is concerned about the number of childcare providers going out of business. She asked for Council's support to sustain childcare services in Hayward against a backdrop of reduced state funding to providers

Margaret Cunningham, Interim Field Representative for Local 1021, thanked the City for reaching an agreement on contracts with the union's members
