Election season is fast approaching, with the Berkeley City Council addressing several items related to the November 2012 ballot at its 7 p.m. meeting Tuesday night.
Several items involve issues that have been ongoing as of late, such as pensions and redistricting. The council will also discuss amending the city charter, contribution limits and infrastructure are topics that will likely appear on the ballot come November.
The charter amendment will allow the restrictions for redistricting in Berkeley to be changed, opening up the possibility for the creation of a student majority district later this year or early next. The second community survey for what tax initiatives residents would like to see on the ballot will also be discussed. Contribution limits for developers doing business with the city is another proposed action item.
The appointment of Interim City Manager Christine Daniel will also be confirmed by the council at Tuesday’s meeting. Daniel took over in November after former City Manager Phil Kamlarz retired after serving in the position for eight years.
