Who is the moron at the helm over there?
Dont they realize that the actual people who actually vote (not the illegal immigrants and low life felons and juvenile delinquents) want this type of enforcement? Dont they realize that pandering to a small and very obnoxious group of people is going to back fire on them?
Gang members are not voting nor are their parents who are either illegal or inept.. hell these people drain our systems they do not add to our community in any way at all...
One thing is for sure - the current 2 party system needs to be blown up - they no longer represent the views of the people or do they work for the benefit of the communities they're supposed to serve.

Sorry EastBeach but quoting the very article that you're commenting on doesnt change the fact that street signs are not required under federal mandates... In a city with extreme sign requirements I'd love to know where they came up with the number 20,000? Did they hire a consultant to count these signs as well? Was it the very same consultant that is charging 72k to measure their reflective value?
Why you people continue to support a city that spends so far beyond its means is crazy. You can shout all you want about the necessity of this asinine contract - it doesnt change the fact that we are bloated in our commitments and overspent in every aspect... I guess for those who dont work or have to pay taxes this is fine but for the rest of us... it reeks of incompetence. We could and should fire 50% of the staff in this city - we'd all be better off.
On Sign Reflectivity to Be Studied for $72,000

There is no Federal mandate for the majority of these signs... the feds do not mandate street name signs for instance, just roadway signs which we may or may not have that many... how many of our signs are State owned? How many are in the county? How do I know? Look at the street signs in Cito or in many other cities,,, they are not reflective... its not a federal issue.
this price is inline with typical Govt contract fleecing. Do you people realize how bloated our city workforce is? We close schools, libraries and parks but spend willy nilly on things like this...

This is the reason we're broke - these kind of give aways. $72k for a study on sign refection? Are you kidding me?
There is no way you can justify this kind of cost when we have 1000+ employees on payroll capable of measuring...
What was the genesis of this need? I'd like to know why the city feels it needs to study this? I'd rather they spent the money on getting these old people and non-english reading folks off the road.

Wow, here we have a fantastic local company serving the community and many of you want to pass this service off to large corporations run from afar?
These folks are good people and they live here... so they care and they work hard to provide good services.
In addition Marborg leads the industry in so many aspects. We're really, really lucky to have a local provider... most of you are simply clueless as to how much of a benefit this is...

as long as they have permits and are legal, I like them. If they are not legal and allowed to operate while we ticket and disallow other legal businesses, then they suck...
No one wants to see illegal activity allowed because of a few politically correct loudmouths screaming racism... Enforce all the laws equally and you'll have a happy town. Continue to selectively enforce the laws and you'll continue to have pissed of citizens.

Giving this building a historic recognition without first addressing the enslavement, murder, rape and pillage of the Chumash (and countless young boys) is atrocious and sad.
Not only should the building be razed, the Catholic church should pay billions in restitution for their crimes against humanity.
Pretty building? Yes. But the history of the place and the men who did such horrors in the name of God, makes it ugly -a monument to evil - not historically relevant.

The bowl keeps getting better and better and better, now if we could lose the Santa Barbara 'Tude' that so many patrons have it'd be the most perfect venue in the country.
Keep up the good work SB Bowl folks, you're building an incredible venue.
