    Tower Watch — Laney and College of Alameda work to improve cafeteria food safety

    The cafeteria at College of Alameda, the Cougar’s Den, closed at the end of the Spring 2018 semester and has not re-opened. Students at the college are limited to vending machines for their choices of food on-campus, and many choose to go to a shopping center nearby for meals. The Den closed after it received a “D” grade from health inspectors, due to uncleanliness and malfunctioning equipment. ASCOA Vice President Katherine O’Brien said they hope to have a contract with a new company soon, but some equipment and flooring must be replaced before the cafeteria is operable. They hope to have the cafeteria open by March 2019.

    In the fall of 2019, The Laney Tower rebranded as The Citizen and launched a new website. These stories were ported over from the old Laney Tower website, but byline metadata was lost in the port. However, many of these stories credit the authors in the text of the story. Some articles may also suffer from formatting issues. Future archival efforts may fix these issues.
