Council to Consider Moratorium on Sale of Public Land and Funding for Job Training, July 17

City Council committees will be considering major issues next week including a moratorium on the sale of public land and placing a “Career Jobs Now!” charter amendment on the ballot that would provide funding for job training programs.

The moratorium on the sale of public land would halt city property sales until the City Council develops a policy prioritizing “public land for public good”. The item is scheduled for the Community and Economic Development (CED) committee on Tuesday, July 17 at 11:30 a.m.

The proposed “Career Jobs Now!” charter amendment would establish funding for job training services, designed to create job opportunities in a city that “has long prided itself in its unique civic character and diverse populace, which are made possible to by increased employment opportunities for all of its residents,” according to the resolution.

The proposed charter amendment, co-sponsored by Councilmembers Desley Brooks and Noel Gallo, will be considered Tuesday, July 17 at the council’s Public Safety Committee (6 p.m.) and at the Finance and Management Committee (9 a.m.).
