Saratoga city manager Dave Anderson announced that he’ll retire in July after nearly 14 years as the city’s top administrative officer. The city council held a special meeting Jan. 29 to kick off the recruitment process for his successor. In the American Lung Association’s 2014 report on tobacco control policies, Saratoga received two Ds and an F. The State of Tobacco Control report released on Jan. 22 gave Saratoga an overall D mark for the fifth consecutive year based on the city’s policies related to smoke-free outdoor air, smoke-free housing and efforts to reduce the sale of tobacco products. Saratoga Mayor Emily Lo said that the report doesn’t take into account the city’s efforts to address the tobacco-related issues unique to the community or the effectiveness of measures to reduce tobacco use or exposure to secondhand smoke.
