independently research. any address you book to make sure it's on the up and up. and given that this property has had multiple problems such as this is there any obligation to inform a renter that there has been problems here in the past? it doesn't seem like something that that site like v. r b o is going to advertise, so the next option for neighbors is to go back to county supervisors in china to strengthen the regulations locally. yes. seems like something needs to be done. alright, deborah villalon reporting live for us tonight in green valley, deborah. thank you. the san mateo city council voted to extend the city's temporary outdoor dining program through next spring. the council approved the program in june of last year to provide more outdoor space for restaurants during the pandemic. the program was supposed to end december 31st. but during tonight's council meeting, it was extended through april 30th due to ongoing concerns about the spread of covid-19. which will allow businesses to keep all of
