Thanks for this Patch. Now it's clear as mud to me what our City Council did last week regarding all those "Memorandums of Understanding". I say it's absolutely no wonder that citizens of some California cities have let their City Councils or Redevelopment Agencies run amok. How would they ever know they have been cheated out of their tax dollars if there's nobody to translate legislators' actions into plain English.
