    Quite spending money on outside help First thing money should be spent on is law enforcement to stop red light runners, stop sign runners, then fix the road in the housing areas where we pay the taxes to keep city hall running. Stop thinking of ways to fix these houses and fix the houses home owners call Code Enforcement about Spend the money to enforce the laws we have now

    They have to have a housing element on file with ABAG that meets ABAG's housing quota requirements. Mostly that means they have to show where low cost/affordable housing will be built and ideally, that it is near mass transit. Without an approved housing element in place, they are liable to be sued to provide one or ABAG will provide one for them.
