In brief...
City’s Measure T is on the Nov. 4 ballot
The City Council has placed Measure T on the November 4th ballot to amend the City’s Charter. It will change the method of voting for City Council members from an at-large voting system to a district-based voting system. Measure T would also require the City to prepare a map of the six City Council Districts. A panel of residents, with the help of a mapping specialist, would prepare a plan to divide the City into six Districts for the City Council to consider approving. Every other City election the registered voters living in a district would vote for a council candidate who must reside within that particular district. Measure T would not change the method for electing the Mayor every City election. The office of the Mayor would continue to be filled through an at-large election so that all registered voters of the City would be entitled to vote for a candidate of their choice.

Water conservation updates

Outdoor water use is about 70% of water use per capita. So let’s all pitch in and help save by reducing our outdoor watering. Our new schedule is as follows:

  • Addresses ending in Even #’s (0, 2, 4, 6, 8) Water on Tuesday & Saturday
  • Addresses ending in Odd #’s (1, 3, 5, 7, 9) Water on Wednesday & Sunday

(The schedule listed in the City June newsletter that went out to homes with the utility bill at the beginning of the month was in error. )

  • Watering early in the morning is best, but be sure to finish up by 9 a.m. or water in the evening after 9 p.m.
  • No watering on Monday, Thursday, or Friday.
  • Remember to turn it off when it rains.

To report water waste call 385-6800.
