Creek Cleanup Efforts Begin

Even though Santa Barbara is now weathering the hottest drought on record, Santa Barbara County flood-control workers are beginning creek cleanup efforts in anticipation of possible El Niño floods. Rattling City Hall’s cage has been Leo Martinez, a former city councilmember who owns property abutting Sycamore Creek.
