ROCK THE VOTE: In Sacramento, Tony Bizjak noted an opinion poll was circulating over the weekend that asked city residents “whether they would support a $1 to $3 surcharge on out-of-town motorists who park in city garages when sports, concerts or other entertainment events are being held at a planned downtown arena.” If surcharges were to be included in the plan, they “could help bump up revenues to finance the arena.” A city official on Saturday said that the parking surcharge on non-city residents “is not, however, part of the city's still-forming financing plan for a $387 million arena” (SACRAMENTO BEE, 2/19).
