Meetings, meetings, meetings
Do you have a lot of meetings as mayor? This is a question I hear a lot. The answer is YES. First of all, I am available to meet with anyone who has a question or concern about the Town of Los Gatos. We have set aside late Wednesday afternoons for appointments at Town Hall, but there are other time slots available for phone calls or meetings if that doesn’t work. All of the members of the Town Council serve on a number of Council Subcommittees and are representatives to regional organizations. Each year, these assignments are changed or reconfirmed. So here’s part of what is keeping me busy in 2006. Regular Town Council meetings on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of the month … weekly mayor-town manager meetings … monthly meetings of the Conceptual Development Advisory Committee, the Santa Clara County Cities Association Board of Directors, the West Valley Sanitation District Board of Directors [see photo of the district headquarters in Campbell], and the West Valley Mayor-Manager Committee … quarterly meetings of the Cities Association Joint Policy Collaborative … as-needed meetings of the Council Policy Committee and the Civic Center Master Plan Committee. I am also one of two Council Liaisons to the Los Gatos Town to Town Katrina Consortium, and serve as an alternate to the Santa Clara Valley Water District Commission. If you’re curious about any of these groups, let me know and I’ll explain their purpose.
