HWY 1 EXPANSION PROJECT MTG 06-16-10 10:15 a.v.

A community meeting held in Santa Cruz this week allowed residents to provide feedback about the upcoming Soquel/Morrissey Auxillary Lane Highway-1 project.  About 25 people gathered last night to voice their opinions on the 22-million dollar widening project of Highway-1 between Morrissey Boulevard and Soquel Avenue.   Residents expressed their concerns over “losing the look” of Santa Cruz as hundreds of trees and bushes are about to be cut down to expand the highway and build a new bridge at La Fonda Avenue.  The project includes building an extra lane in each direction between the 2 streets and landscaping.   The work is expected to take 2 years to complete.

MCO POSTPONES CITY PAY RAISES 06-16-10 08:00 a.v.

In an effort to avoid paying cost-of-living wage increases, Monterey city council members voted yesterday to cut 7 positions and approve pay amendments.  Council members decided to lay off 5-full-time and 2-part-time city workers, while also reducing 2 other full-time positions to part-time positions.  The council also voted to approve amendments with all other employee groups that would postpone their pay raises, a move that would reportedly save the city $670,000 during the coming fiscal year.  209 city employees are expected to be affected by the pay raise postponement.  The 4% cost-of-living raise was due July 1st and is now being deferred to June 16th of 2012.
