MAYOR’S OFFICE

Mayor says details on city Wi-Fi deal forthcoming

Mayor Gavin Newsom said specific details of The City’s plan with Earthlink and Google to blanket San Francisco with wireless Internet access will become clear in the next few months, but he assured that it would include a free service. Newsom said The City has examined ways to set up Wi-Fi in response to Supervisor Jake McGoldrick’s request to draft a report on the feasibility of San Francisco building its own wireless network without the help of Earthlink and Google.

EMERGENCY SERVICES

Officials meet to discuss priceless exhibits

Representatives from The City’s emergency services agencies met with museum representatives in a forum Monday at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art to discuss options in the event of a disaster.

The forum, part of a four-part statewide series to honor National Preparedness Month, was meant to establish relationships between first responders and the cultural preservation community. Museums face the task of preserving their exhibits, which may be fragile and priceless, but which cannot expect to be a top priority for first responders.

BOARD OF SUPERVISORS

Children’s eviction measures come to vote of supervisors

The Board of Supervisors will hold its first vote today on measures regarding evictions and their possible effect on children’s school performance. One proposal would amend the rent ordinance to require city agencies to identify and report data on evictions involving school-age children. Another measure would urge the San Francisco Unified School District to track student mobility caused by evictions and report findings to the board so that it could consider legislative remedies to address negative academic consequences. The board meets at 2 p.m. in the legislative chambers at City Hall.
