Around Town in South County: Brief Notations For The Week

It was a very busy week in the City of Laguna Niguel.    I had a chance to join the Budget Workshop that the City Council had approximately one week ago as the City Staff presented the annual budget for the City.   It was gratifying to see how member of the City Council went through each page literally line by line to assess the proposed expenses as outlined by City Manager Rod Foster and his Team.  

In my capacity as a Traffic and Transportation Commissioner, I attended the monthly Commision Meeting to deliberate a number of key issues before us.   Some may consider the issues mundane, but it is never so to the people who are impacted.   It was amazing how staggering a statistic was  presented on traffic:  9 Million Vehicles traveling on Golden Lantern.  

There is also change in the air at Capistrano Unified School District.   The new Superintendent of Schools is on track to be appointed within the next 30 days as the District again has to gear up for a new Budget and the LCAP process that is before it.

Never a dull moment...that's for sure....
