Hughson mayor is smart about growth

As we come out of the recession, the next year or two will be crucial. Will we return to pre-recession land use policies that drained public revenues, spread public services too thin, and fueled a real estate bubble that burst into disaster? Or, will we develop policies that ensure smart growth while protecting important resources? A mayors meeting on May 13th is a big turning point.

Council needs to develop plan to fix Turlock roads now

Mayor Soiseth's public workshop on Turlock roads reconfirmed what Turlock residents already know – the condition of Turlock roads is deplorable and there is no definitive plan to provide a dedicated source of funding to halt the deterioration of Turlock's transportation infrastructure.

Committed to an accountable City Hall

Over the last few weeks, this Council has started a 100-day process of establishing a renewed strategic plan and reviewing our department budgets line-by-line.

This includes some of Turlock's contracts for outside services, and one such contract had been awarded without competition since 1991.

Thanks for making holidays brighter for foster, at-risk youth

This year, Aspiranet partnered with 39 Starbucks stores in Stanislaus and Merced counties for our annual Holiday Gift Drive, where we collected 810 gifts for the foster and at-risk youth we serve with the help and generosity of Starbucks customers. The holidays, which can be a difficult time for our youth because they are separated from parents and/or siblings, becomes a time when our youth feel the support of the community.
