Mary Lopez invited Council Members and staff to visit the Senior Center, noting that they needed help financially and needed a community center. She asked that Council keep an eye on the spending.

Shelly McMahon spoke regarding Cornfest.

Barbara Guise spoke with regard to the Farmer's Market which averaged 17 vendors per week. There had been 1,750 participants, merchants were happy since Second Street was not closed and people were staying longer than last year. The Chamber of Commerce would allow food vendors that were Chamber members to sell food. She also noted that the Tri Delta Transit 200 bus, which traveled to Martinez and the Veteran's Clinic, was in jeopardy and said she hoped that the Board of Supervisors would continue to fund it.

Kay Roosen presented an overhead regarding property located off of the Highway 4 Bypass, noting that it was the last open piece of land in the City. The business park was scheduled to be built there and there were other places it could be built. She suggested that a park be placed on the property and asked that it be preserved and stay open for picnic tables, trails and possibly include a lake. It was an opportunity to preserve something beautiful and she urged Council to keep the open space.
