By Mof Staff  April 18, 2016 Must we go back to court?

By George Miller On Tuesday 1-19-16, the Oxnard City Council approved the first reading of new policies and ordinances to increase utility rates for water, wastewater and solid waste disposal by a mind-boggling 60% or $750 annually for a typical residential customer, over the next few years.

Proposed Oxnard housing development receives less than enthusiastic reception

By George Miller Still another housing development pre-application review – named Rio Urbana- was presented at the 9-1-15 Oxnard City Council meeting. Citing concerns about traffic congestion, pedestrian safety, “San Fernando-ization” (the cumulative effect of adding more and more high-density housing), pollution, infrastructure costs, water supply, tandem parking, school crowding and more, some residents speaking and some […]
