Mid-Year Budget review, item related to sober living homes and more on Council's March 28 agenda

council meeting

The City Council on Tuesday, March 28 will consider the Mid-Year Budget Review for Fiscal Year 2022-23 and appoint commissioners to three City advisory boards and consider an item related the Sober Living and Recovery Task Force. 

The meeting starts at 6 pm in the City Hall Council Chamber at 200 Civic Center. 

During the City’s mid-year budget review for Fiscal Year 2022-23, Council Members will consider amending revenue projections and the appropriation budget for several funds including the General Fund. The proposed amendment includes adding $1.575 million to General Fund reserves. 

In addition, the Council will nominate and appoint commissioners to the Community Services, Investment Advisory and Planning and Transportation Commissions. The application deadline passed last week for residents interested in serving on these advisory boards.  

In other Council news, on the heels of the City of Mission Viejo’s proactive work to lead the way in the State with efforts to address issues related to sober living homes, the Orange County Register recently reported about Costa Mesa and other cities that are banding together to form a unified front. Spearheaded by the City, the formally named South Orange County Sober Living and Recovery Task Force has expanded to an all-encompassing “Southern California” coalition after a growing number of neighboring cities expressed interest in participating. The Task Force’s mission is to combine expert education and research, public input, and bi-partisan regional ideas and initiatives to determine critical pathways for possible short and long-term policy solutions to issues our communities face related to sober living and recovery homes. Council Members will consider an item related to the task force's efforts. 

City Council meetings are streamed live on the City’s website and air on Cox Channel 30 and AT&T U-Verse Channel 99. Residents are encouraged to sign up for the City's eNewsletter and follow the City's official social media sites for the most accurate, up-to-date information.

Maybe it is time we bring up the growing homeless situation. It's a shame the money we spent on the so called Steinmart improvrements and having people camped in variuus places in central city areas. (I.E. the empty Michaels store and all day people at Panera's restaurant)
