How about a link to the City of Pleasanton Emergency Declaration that Nelson signed. It is not posted in the city website. Some of these types of declarations strip place extreme restrictions. We have a right to know and the city needs to be more transparent with these types of things.

Per the article, the city manager Nelson Fialho is also the Emergency Services Director. Hearing that he pretty much unilaterally chose our latest Police Chief, my confidence level is a bit short.

Is there anyway we can publish a copy of the order? We deserve to know.

urmomz- I am sure for you 15 seconds was exhaustive. At the time I commented on 3/19 it wasn’t posted. Subsequently on 3/20 it was posted and included in the City Counsel Agenda packet for their upcoming 3/23 meeting. No need to be snarky.

BTW the declaration still lacks the encompassing details - it’s pretty broad. Maybe you can spend 20 seconds researching all of the code references for us and fill us all in.

We have updated our story with a link to Pleasanton's emergency declaration after receiving a copy from city officials. Thanks for the suggestion.
