    6-4-19 Oxnard Council Meeting Report Preview: Cannabis, Subsidized Housing, etc.

    By George Miller

    The Oxnard City Council at its five hour 6-4-19 open meeting approved: direction to regulate cannabis manufacturing, testing and distribution; indicated they wanted to accelerate movement into cultivation and retailing of it (a change of direction); nearly no change budgets/strategies for the Housing Dept (city-owned housing) and Housing Commission (HUD-funded housing); objected to lack of action to get people off assisted housing (an annual ritual accomplishing nothing); Ramrodded 21 consent agenda items through with no debate at all,* including some taxes; streamlined/changed procedures for handling nuisance abatement and civil fines; 

    On a lighter note, the Council/City also celebrated: (LGBT) Pride month; Juneteenth (go to Plaza Park on 6-15!); Cheered Santa Clara High School Boys Basketball Team for Winning the CIF Southern Section Division 5AA and Advancing to the State’s Semi-Finals.

    Off agenda: public pushback on draconian budget cuts- especially fire station, PAC, Colonia Library, with a few alternative ideas; Strong allegations that Police/Fire benefit increases will cost 2-3X what the city claims.

    Wednesday 6 PM budget meeting

    * These are discussed at daylong committee meetings that many say are long and at inconvenient hours for most working people.



    Watch for full report with much more.

    Yes, with Oxnard’s New Math, we are all doomed.

    Maybe someone should have learned Math instead of German.

    Just sayin…..
