Salinas Alisal Secession Mtg. 11-19-13 08:30 av
A special meeting took place yesterday to discuss a proposal to separate Alisal from the City of Salinas. Salinas City leaders rejected the idea of the community known as “The Alisal” to split, citing costly reasons. Officials say in order for secession to happen, permission would need to be granted by the county’s Local Agency Formation Commision, and supporters would also have to pay $500,000 for studies and surveys.
