Amended/Corrected Certification of Posting of Notice of City Council meeting:
On Saturday March 28, 2020, it was discovered that the original  Certification of posting of the City Council Agenda for March 30, 2020, incorrectly stated that the online posting was made on March 36, 2020, at 2:57 pm.  The reference to March 36 is an obvious clerical error.  This Corrected Certification verifies that the Agenda and its Certification were actually posted on line and at City Hall on Friday, March 27, 2020, at 2:57 pm.


Teresa Herrera, City Secretary
