County government

• A hearing on the county's request to toss a lawsuit over its now-defunct at-large supervisorial elections has been rescheduled from Monday to Feb. 11. The county calls the suit by a six residents moot because voters in November changed the county charter to require district election. The plaintiffs, which claim the county's prior method is discriminatory and in violation of the state's voting rights act, want the suit to continue so a judge can establish the change.

City government

• The city of San Carlos is accepting applications for two vacancies on its Economic Development Advisory Commission. Applicants must be a resident or business owner in San Carlos. The commission provides the City Council advice and recommendations on economic development programs, goals and objectives. The commission meets the fourth Tuesday of each month at 4 p.m. in Room 207 of City Hall, 600 Elm St. Applications are available online at or by contacting the City Clerk's Office at 802-4222. The deadline is 4 p.m. Friday, Jan. 18 with interviews tentatively scheduled with the City Council Monday, Jan. 28.

 • The City Clerk's Office of Redwood City is expanding its passport counter hours and allows for drop-ins rather than requiring appointments to pick up or drop off applications, renewals and payments. The new hours are 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Monday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays and Wednesdays. The counter is closed Thursdays, Fridays and holidays.
