Get ready for a fun-filled geocaching event in celebration of Leap Year at Pavion Park on Saturday, February 29.

Join other geocache enthusiasts at the park (N 33° 36.914' W 117° 37.996) at 2:29 pm to look for a series of new caches hidden along the Oso Creek Trail in the Jeronimo Open Space that will be published the day of the event. 

When the clock struck midnight on January 1, Assembly Bill 1594 went into effect, causing a spike to our trash rates. The increase comes after the state rolled out new regulations that limit organic waste going into landfills, reducing methane emissions that contribute to climate change.

The increases are reflected in your bills from Waste Management. For example, the single-family standard cart service rate went up by about 15 percent. Other rates vary.

So, why the increases?

Have you seen the new design on the MV Shuttle? The formerly plain white vehicles were recently enhanced with a vivid community theme designed by Community Relations Department graphics designer Toni Nunez.

The new look comes on the heels of the City taking over operations of the free shuttle service from the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA).

Caltrans, working with the Transportation Corridor Agencies, has initiated the formal environmental review phase for the South County Traffic Relief Effort (SCTRE).

The state transportation agency is seeking public input on developing mobility solutions in South Orange County by holding two public scoping meetings along with a 30-day public comment period that ends at 5 pm on December 9.

The scoping meetings will be held open-house format with no formal presentation. Public comments will be accepted either verbally or in writing.

The City and Waste Management are teaming up to host a free composting workshop at 10 am on Saturday, October 5 in the Kershaw Garden at City Hall, 200 Civic Center.

Residents can learn how to turn their yard and food waste into organic fertilizer through vermi-composting (worm composting). Compost and vermi-composting containers will be available for Mission Viejo residents for purchase or order, with discounted bins provided to folks who register and attend the workshop.
