San Mateo church to host affordable housing talks

San Mateo residents are invited to a community meeting on affordable housing Tuesday, as members of the Congregational Church of San Mateo and St. Bartholomew’s Church meet to discuss the city’s needs.

The meeting begins at 7 p.m. in the St. Bartholomew’s auditorium at Columbia Drive and Alameda de las Pulgas in San Mateo.

One focus of the meeting is housing for the teachers, clerks and safety workers who may not be able to afford to live in San Mateo or any part of the high-priced Bay Area.

Coroner notification bill shelved by Assembly panel

The Appropriations Committee shelved a coroner’s notification bill by Assemblyman Gene Mullin, D-South San Francisco, for the remainder of the year.

The legislation would require county coroners to notify next of kin to retain parts of the body. The committee did so due to the high costs — more than $5 million — associated with the requirements including refrigerated storage space and additional staff. Mullin’s office said it would try to move the bill out of committee next January.
