It's full steam ahead tonight for the Menlo Park City Council's last meeting before the city's administration shuts down for a week during the Christmas holiday.
The consent calendar will likely spark some public comment, as one item pertains to compensation for City Manager Alex McIntyre. The council is being asked to approve a $360,000 home improvement loan at 2.5 percent interest; reduce the interest on the $1.1 million loan extended for the purchase of his home from 3.5 to 3 percent; and increase the city's contribution to his retirement savings account by about $100 a year if he opts out of the city's health insurance program. His annual salary currently $199,000 -- would not increase, according to the staff report.
The regular meeting starts at 7 p.m. in council chambers at the Civic Center at 701 Laurel St. Click here to see the agenda and associated staff reports. The meeting can be watched live online via the city's website.
