Local city and school officials will hold a public meeting Feb. 24 to unveil "Yellow Bus Challenge 2.0," the newly revamped plan to encourage children to take buses to school and get their parents' cars off the road at peak commute hours.

As currently constructed, the proposal — still subject to change — is to increase the number of school buses, add more routes and bus stops, shorten ride times and offer a 50 percent discount on passes; undiscounted passes for 2014-2015 cost parents $427 each way per child.

The presentation, a joint session of the Belvedere City Council and Tiburon Town Council, is tentatively set for 6 p.m. at Tiburon Town Hall, but it could be moved to the Reed Elementary School auditorium if officials feel they need more room to accommodate the audience.

Ever since the family of the late Lowell McKegney announced last fall it wanted to make a gift to Tiburon of famed sculptor Mark di Suvero's 55-foot-tall outdoor work "Huru" on permanent loan, Tiburon's modern art lovers and haters have been waiting for their chance to sound off directly to the Tiburon Town Council.

Now that wait is nearly over. The council's scheduled public forum on the offer is slated for its next meeting, at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 4 at Tiburon Town Hall.

Most recently, the work was on exhibit at San Francisco's waterfront Crissy Field for two years. Before that, the University of Massachusetts at Boston had it for 10 years on loan.

Tiburon police chased down and arrested a 23-year-old man who fled from officers and climbed onto the roof of a downtown Tiburon apartment complex Jan. 21 after what started as a routine chat about panhandling.

Augustus Rasmussen pleaded not guilty Jan. 23 to a felony charge of residential burglary and to misdemeanor charges of resisting arrest, providing false identification to a peace officer and driving without a license when he appeared in court with a public defender.

He's being held on $55,000 bail.

Officers had responded to Tiburon Boulevard and Beach Road about 12:20 p.m. after reports of a man allegedly asking for gas money at a Boardwalk Shopping Center courtyard business, claiming that his wallet was stolen, Tiburon Police spokeswoman Laurie Nilsen said.
