What's Coming Up This Week?

Well, first thing off the bat, the Costa Mesa Library Foundation is having a fund raising dinner opportunity for you Monday, August 17th (tonight, for most of you reading this early Monday morning).

Yep, this is another chance for you to grab some great grub and participate in a contribution to the foundation. This one is at Mimi's Restaurant, 1835 Harbor Blvd., in the Courtyards Center. The event is scheduled from 4 p.m. - 8 p.m. and you MUST bring a flier to Mimi's and present it with your check to be sure the money is properly earmarked for the foundation. You can visit the Costa Mesa Library Foundation web site HERE for more information about the event. There's a link to a PDF file for the flier... just print it out and take it with you. See you there..


The Costa Mesa City Council will hold another meeting Tuesday evening at 6 p.m. in the council chambers at City Hall. Among the items on the agenda is yet another public hearing on the current m
oratorium on massage licenses and permits. The staff is recommending an extension of this moratorium for another 10 month and 15 days.


They will also give a second reading to the ordinance amending the city's agreement with CalPERS to provide for an additional 2 years of service. The approval of this item will facilitate the early retirement of several dozen city employees as part of the "10-point plan" to balance the city budget for this fiscal year.


And, the council will hear the proposal by the Parks and Recreation Commission to create a "City of Costa Mesa Public Service Memorial." While this seems like an idea worth discussing, the timing seems off considering the precarious condition of the city's finances right now.

Hi Geoff,

Righeimer may have gotten my hackles up with his penchant for over regulation (obviously not a Libertarian, is he?) but his article (link here) in the Daily Pilot talking about the juicy pension benefits bankrupting our communities was right on. It is time for the taxpayers to regain control of our expenditures.

Thank you for putting in a plug for the Mimi's fundraiser for the library foundation. We estimate about $500 worth of food went to the credit of the Foundation.
