Shoreline’s Council Freebies Unchanged

City Council members in Mountain View, Calif., shouldn’t award themselves any more free tickets to Shoreline Amphitheatre than they already get, the city’s council procedures committee decided March 30.

The city receives free box seat and G.A. tickets to Shoreline shows and events as part of its lease agreement with Live Nation.

Mountain View’s new policy requires disclosure forms to be filled out and posted online to account for all tickets distributed to council members, who can now obtain up to 10 free box seat tickets or four G.A. tickets per year if they attend shows in a “public policy/oversight function.”

They can also get 10 box seats if they declare the tickets as income and pay taxes on them, according to the San Jose Mercury News.
