As a member of the Fourth of July Citizen's Committee, Steve Cho asked the council for some City support for the parade, currently funded entirely by private donations. This request has been made before and he noted that although the City of Fremont pays a fee for a parade outside Fremont, it does not lend any support to the Fourth of July Parade held within Fremont and for Fremont. He praised some councilmembers for active fundraising help, notably Vice Mayor Anu Natarajan.
Another member of the Fourth of July Parade Committee, Maggie Pederson, also spoke about the upcoming parade.
An oral report by Community Development Director Jeff Schwob was received regarding oversight of former Redevelopment Agency asset disposition. Next meeting scheduled for October 3, 2012.
