If you’re in hurry driving down Soquel Avenue, Mission Street or Ocean Avenue in Santa Cruz… you better slow down!
Santa Cruz police are targeting those major boulevards looking for speeders, drivers who don’t come to a full stop or aren’t watching for pedestrians and bikes.
Some officers are in plain view while others are undercover pedestrians… who are ticketing violators that don’t come to a complete stop at a crosswalk.
Tension is mounting among Santa Cruz city council members as the council considers a formal reprimand against councilmen Drew Glover and Chris Krohn.
The potential punishment comes following the release of an independent investigator’s report that reviewed several complaints of misconduct against Glover and Krohn.. Most of the complaints were found to be un-provable or not substantiated.
If the council approves the reprimand, it would come at this Tuesday’s meeting and would include a review by the human resources department on city workplace conduct and a recommendation the entire council be subject to mediation.
In business news… it’s a sign of the times: a drone drugstore.
Walgreens and Google are teaming up and testing drone deliveries in christians-burg Virginia.
Right now, consumers can get over the counter medication delivered but not prescriptions. Shoppers will choose from a list of more than 100 items that can be delivered by a 10-pound drone flying 70-miles per hour… within minutes.
The drone is run by “wing aviation,” a subsidiary of Google. No word yet on how long the testing phase will last or when we can expect buzzing delivery drones on the Central Coast.
