STATE WATER BOND PULLED FROM NOV. ELECTION 06-30-10 06:25 a.v.

An 11 billion dollar water bond will no longer be on the November ballot after a decision made by Governor Schwarzenegger this week.   Even though the governor claims that improving the state’s water storage and delivery system is one of his main priorities, he believes it’s not the right time to implement that measure, and wants to delay the ordinance until 2012.   Schwarzenegger says the prospects for approval would be hurt by putting the measure on the ballot now, and wants to spend more time currently focusing on improving the deficit, reforming government pensions and creating long-term budget reforms.

A budget was passed last night iin Monterey County that would not only close a 22-million dollar gap, but eliminate the need to layoff workers.  According to a report presented to the County’s Board of Supervisors, all but 5 employees, out of the 43 originally slated to lose their jobs this week, have found new jobs within the county.  The board was able to cut costs by about 3.6%, a year after reportedly cutting 7% of it’s spending.  Layoff notices are expected to be prolonged to another month to afford more time to find jobs for the remaining 5 workers.

In an effort to save services while cutting budget costs, Salinas residents will now have to pay more for their garbage service.   Salinas city council members will now join forces with BFI through a package program which is expected to allow the city to continue certain services which will be funded through and managed by BFI.  The one dollar a week, $4 a month rate increase, will reportedly go towards paying for graffiti abatement, street sweeping, code enforcement and saving a number of jobs in the city.
