City Council to consider policy changes on port commissioners and appointments to boards, commissions

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The San Diego City Council passed a resolution Tuesday to require Mayor Bob Filner to sign an operating agreement for the city's Tourism Marketing District that the panel originally approved in November, despite his contentious plea for a two-day delay.

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Mayor Bob Filner, the City Council and the board of the city of San Diego's Tourism Marketing District ended a heated dispute over the promotion's agency's funding Thursday.

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The San Diego City Council voted unanimously Monday to commit more than $10 million in anticipated federal grant money to fund homeless programs, along with public service, capital improvement and community economic development projects in the upcoming fiscal year.
