North Oakland Now: Tuesday, February 24
on February 24, 2009
Rise and shine, North Oakland! Here are your headlines for the day: Oakland City Council is mulling new ballot measures for a potential June 2 special election. The proposals offer clues as to how the Council plans to tackle the (at least) $50 million budget gap for the 09-10 fiscal year. And the Chronicle reminds us that all this rain is doing little to increase California water levels. Apparently, a couple of weeks of rain are no match for a three-year drought.
