Maybe the PFLl can lower heir costs to play baseball. $425 for a 6 year old little league is ridiculous .. nice work though PTown!

Pleasanton pension debt can stand a $4.4 million pay down.

Claiming a surplus when you have a pension and retiree medical debt is like charging up all your visa cards, making the minimum payment, and saying you have tons of disposable income.

That's great news! 50 more years like this and we'll be able to afford the proposed City Hall and Civic Center...

@Common sense,

What parcel tax? I think our school district would benefit from a parcel tax. We have bonds, but no parcel tax.

I think Common Sense meant Property Tax.

I also just read the Planning Commission packet for this upcoming week and it indicates that Pleasanton has made a bid on the parcel of land between the library and the train track for $4.2M which has been accepted but going through Planning Commission. I don't see any need for that property by the City. Move the library to the Bernal Property and use the old library building for the civic center. Anybody know why the city is purchasing this property? Perhaps they want to put high density houses on it?

They probably want to buy that property for Costco offices, since they pretty much have paid for Costco to put a store here.
