Council meeting lasts just 14 minutes

3 speakers, no agenda issue set record for brevity

by Jeb Bing

The Pleasanton City Council, bogged down during much of 2011 in late-hour meetings on rezoning and affordable housing issues, may have set a new record Tuesday for brevity.

Vice Mayor Cheryl Cook-Kallio opened the meeting as usual with the "Pledge of Allegiance," and then the council heard brief remarks from three speakers among a total of five citizens in the council chambers. The one item on the council's agenda had been continued to Feb. 5.

With no other issues to discuss, Cook-Kallio adjourned the meeting 14 minutes after it started.

Last Tuesday's meeting also was short, lasting less than an hour. Mayor Jennifer Hosterman was out of town for both of the meetings, with Cook-Kallio serving in her place.
