In case you missed the August 22nd Com-Link General Meeting, below are highlights shared by the main presenter, Santa Ana City Manager Kristine Ridge:
1) City Council approved a balanced budget for Fiscal Year 2019-2020 and current reserves exceed City’s reserve policy. With Public Safety being a top priority, the Santa Ana Police Department is on track to hire 50 new officers by the end of the 2019 calendar year.
2) Homelessness is the #1 concern in the community and the City is making progress through the following ways: $2M in additional funding allocated to address homelessness, separate from $1M already funded to operate “The Link” – the City’s 200-bed shelter; the City will soon contract with a private security company specifically for all City parks; the City’s Quality of Life Team addressing homeless encampments Citywide work shift has been moved later from 6 p.m. – 12 a.m.; City Manager has been in negotiations with Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) company to discuss a Memorandum of Understanding to partner and address trash and encampments on UPRR property; and the City’s smartphone app will soon have a feature to report homeless encampments on public and private property.
3) Capital Improvements Opportunity – As soon as funding is available, the City will move forward with plans to improve street medians with drought-tolerant landscaping.
