- Annual adjustment in accordance with the Bay Area consumer price index (CPI) for urban users.
- A prohibition on “without cause” termination of employment within 90 days of an election.
- An increase of three months severance (from 6-months to 9-months) if the city manager is terminated “without cause” within 91 and 180 days from the date of an election (after the 180th day, the severance would revert to the 6-months provided currently).
