Today: Menlo Park council sets goals

In the civic equivalent of making New Year's resolutions, the Menlo Park City Council will meet Monday (Jan. 27) afternoon to set goals for the upcoming year.

The council members and city staff will attempt to agree on a list of "realistic and achievable" goals, agree on how to handle issues that emerge during the year and "strengthen teamwork", according to the agenda.

Monday's session starts at 1 p.m. at the Arrillaga Family Recreation Center at 700 Alma St.

They will reconvene tomorrow evening for their regular council meeting, which will include a study session on alternatives to binding arbitration in police disciplinary cases and a request from Vice Mayor Catherine Carlton to reconsider whether to spend an additional $24,000 on updating the city's logo.

Although city staff told the council during its Jan. 14 meeting that the contract for redesigning the logo obligated the city to pay for the second phase, the contract actually does contain a termination clause.
