Letters to the Editor, Los Altos City Council, dangers of 5G

LA council throwing citizens under the bus

The title of a Nov. 27 letter to the editor – “Los Altos City Council supports citizens” – is misleading at best.

Burning through $100,000 of our tax dollars (with no end in sight) and allowing Shaw Consulting to claim we need “3,000 square feet or larger with at least 20 feet separation from dais to speaker podium” for council meetings (without a shred of supporting data) is more like throwing citizens under a bus.


Letters to the Editor, code red on pensions, energy code

Los Altos ranks ‘code red’ on pensions

The State Auditor’s office recently released the results of a study ranking the fiscal health of 471 cities in California, with the results conveniently accessible in a new website: auditor.ca.gov/bsa/cities_risk_index. We should thank State Auditor Elaine Howle for making these data available.

Letters to the Editor: permit fees, city council

Permit fees hinder downtown businesses

We are always listening to or reading about how to improve downtown vibrancy. There is much talk about parking or lack thereof, how to attract shoppers and diners, but there is one thing the discussions lack – how to keep businesses here.

Downtown small business owners face challenges such as rising rents, competing with online sales, declining foot traffic and lack of staff.
