As a valued community member, the Independent Districting Advisory Committee is calling on you to take part in the process of creating six Council voting districts. Three first-round community meetings will be held in various locations within the City to ask for public input.
Tuesday, May 5, 2015 6:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. Tenaya Middle School 760 W. 8th Street
Tuesday, May 19, 2015 6:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. Senior Community Center 755 15th Street
Saturday, May 30, 2015 2:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. Rivera Middle School 945 Buena Vista Drive
Come and share with the Committee what you consider to be your “community.” Learn how to make and send in your own district map. The meetings will cover the same information, so come to the one most convenient for you. There will be another round of meetings, to hear the public’s comments on proposed draft maps, which are planned for July 2015.
The Merced City Council Monday night unanimously appointed Randolph Stevenson Hom, 51, as the new City Attorney. He replaces Greg Diaz, who served as City Attorney for 10 years before becoming the Ventura City Attorney.
Upon his appointment, Hom said, “I look forward to this great opportunity to serve the City of Merced.”
In his career, Hom has defended the interests of municipal agencies and advised staff employees from the cities of Los Angeles, Hayward, and San Jose.
