The $90,670.20 settlement that led SF Weekly this week to ponder how 20 cents get tossed onto five-figure deal was approved today by the Board of Supervisors' Rules Committee.

The proposed payout to former Recreation and Parks Public Information Officer Rose Marie Dennis -- who alleged that her supervisor, then-department head Yomi Agunbiade religiously and sexually harassed her ... in writing -- now only requires an up vote from the full board of supes on Oct. 6.

Supervisors Chris Daly and David Campos gave the settlement proposal

the thumbs-up, while colleague Michela Alioto-Pier was not present when

the vote was taken as was "in and out" during today's meeting according

to committee clerk Linda Wong.

SF Weekly
had hoped reticent and cautious city insiders would give up some details after today's vote, but it looks like we'll have to wait until October. C'est la vie.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
