TIGHT ON TIME IN THE VALLEY: A SACRAMENTO BEE editorial states while the "tight timetable on a deal for a new downtown arena is being driven by the NBA," Sacramento officials can "still control how open the process is." For something "this important, involving so much public money, the schedule City Hall is on falls far short of the transparency that Sacramento deserves." The plan is to "post the agreement on the city's website" on March 21, "mere hours before the only scheduled public meeting." That "isn't enough lead time," and City Manager John Shirey "warned council members even that isn't guaranteed." A forum "without a specific proposal to comment on would be an empty gesture" (SACRAMENTO BEE, 3/14).
