Today is Monday, October 11, and the city has the Columbus Day holiday off. When Council returns this week, it will be dealing with collections, marijuana dispensaries and filming incentives.

MONDAY: Holiday hours. City offices are closed.

TUESDAY: Council meets, as do three committees.

At Council, item 1 is a compilation of eight council files dealing with the city's collections process and the concept of consolidating billings and collections between city departments.

Item 11 is CF 10-2304, a street dedication to widen the right-of-way for Temple Street east of Alameda.

Jobs & Business committee focuses its agenda on ways to promote filming in the city.

CF 10-1238 is a motion to raise the floor on film production taxes from $2.5 million to $5 million. The motion says that the move would lower taxes for 535 production companies.

CF 08-1783-S6 is to be a report on the impact of refunding sales taxes on filming-related purchases for productions that do 75% of their shooting in the city.

CF 09-0600-S155 is an ordinance to extend the city's waiver of filming fees at city property until June 30, 2014.

At 2:30pm, the Audits & Governmental Efficiency committee will hold a joint special meeting with the Budget & Finance committee to discuss CF 09-2560, a "Blueprint for Reform of City Collections."

WEDNESDAY: Council meets again, also with three committees.

At Housing, Community and Economic Development, CF 09-1737 is the CRA's report on the May recommendations by a panel of ULI cleantech experts.

At Council, item 13 is CF 10-1442, a motion to lease a space in the L.A. Mall to Chase, which plans to include a pair of walk-up ATMs.

Item 28 is CF 08-0923-S7, a motion that would change the city's rules on medical marijuana collectives to legalize pre-ICO dispensaries that have "substantially" the same ownership as when they registered.

At Transportation committee, CF 09-2140-S3 and CF 09-2140-S1 deal with potential implementation of a ban on mobile billboards.
