City cancels Election Day meeting
The multi-million-dollar Safeway complex on Valley Avenue near Bernal and I-680 will include the large supermarket and other small retail shops, restaurants, a drive-through pharmacy and outdoor dining. Safeway also is reserving an additional 10,000 square feet for possible future expansion of its store.
The Pleasanton City Council cancelled its Election Day meeting Nov. 2, despite the fact that usually it meets the first and third Tuesdays of the month. If the election results are tabulated in time, the council members and mayor elected could be seated at the Nov. 16 meeting.
