Post-Mortem City Council Meetings

Tuesday. March 18

Tuesday March 25


 “I tell you the past is a bucket of ashes, so live not in your yesterdays, no just for tomorrow, but in the here and now. Keep moving and forget the post mortems; and remember, no one can get the jump on the future.”

- Carl Sandburg, American Poet, 1878-1967


Am I really 3 meetings behind?  The 18-pager bankruptcy treatise took up so much time.  Now I am caught up until Tuesday… Why the Carl Sandburg quote? Well, I was thinking of these meetings as “post-mortem” since I really felt the passing away of any real change on council…and here we are in the same old world that seems to be controlled by the same old IAFF Union.  Did you hear about the new revelation brought forward on at the March 25 Council meetings regarding employee evaluations?  Everyone in the city gets evaluations but the Fire fighters.  They apparently haven’t for about 20 years.

The Big Box Beat

With Joe Feller----Aging Punk Rocker and Entrepreneur

A Look at Small Business--Big Box Development--and What it Means to YOU!!!





Hello VIB readers,

I would like to take a minute and introduce myself.  My name is Joe Feller and I have lived in Vallejo for nearly 20 years.  I have owned a small telecommunications company since I moved here and am both a tax payer and a tax collector for the City of Vallejo.  When I sell equipment, I collect sales tax that then gets divvied up by the state and distributed to the city, so ergo, I am a tax collector also.
