In addition to discussing its top five economic priorities for the rest of the fiscal year, the City Council goes Hollywood on Tuesday—or at least brings little Hollywood home—when former American Idol contestant and San Jose native DeAndre Brackensick will receive a commendation.
It’s not clear if Brackensick will perform or simply wow public officials with his hair. (There’s nothing in his Idol contract that would prevent the latter.) Other matters going before the council Tuesday include:
— approving a ban on the city purchasing expanded polystyrene products. (This won’t affect local retailers … yet.)
— hearing the Independent Police Auditor’s report from retired judge LaDoris Cordell, as well a report from the Internal Affairs Unit that Police Chief Chris Moore recommends accepting.
— approving the continued suspension of supplemental retiree benefit payments, which a memo from City Manager Debra Figone says will save the city almost $7.86 million.
