Parking permits set to expire July 31
It's time to renew residential, senior and business parking permits, according to City Manager John Pietig's weekly update of July 8.
The current permits expire July 31, but new ones may be purchased beginning Friday at the City Hall cashier counter. Applications are now available on the city's website. Residents may print out and complete the applications before heading to City Hall.

Trash triples over holiday weekend
On July 5, after the long Fourth of July weekend, the Public Works crew collected 120 cubic yards of trash from downtown, Main Beach, Heisler Park, Moulton Meadows Park and Alta Laguna Park, according to Pietig's update. A normal weekend during the summer yields only about 40 cubic yards of trash from these same areas.
FOR THE RECORD:
[The item about the second annual Harvest Festival dinner and concert Saturday was removed because the hosts intended it to be a private event.]
