NEWS-LEDGER — FEB 22, 2012 –

West Sacramento’s city council this morning (Feb. 22) plans a special ‘thank you’ breakfast for Congressman Mike Thompson.
City officials credit Thompson with helping support local levee improvement efforts and improvements at the Port of West Sacramento.
He has represented the region since 1998, but the city will become part of fellow Democrat Doris Matsui’s 5th District next January.

The West Sacramento Area Flood Control Agency announced it will recommend “Design Alternative 2” as the final plan to improve Southport’s river levees. The plan will go to WSAFCA’s board of directors on March 8.

The newest major edition to the Ikea shopping center will be a La-Z-Boy Furniture Gallery. The 12,800-square foot will hold a grand opening on March 1 at 10 a.m..

  West Sacramento’s city council was scheduled to hold special meetings yesterday morning and this morning (Feb. 21-22) at city hall, largely to discuss “a broad range of city matters, procedures, policies and functions” with help from a facilitator.
