Mayor’s Proclamation Honoring Community Bridges for 30 Years of Outstanding Service to the Santa Cruz County Community [120-40] Mayor Termini called Sam Storey, the Executive Director of Community Bridges, forward to accept the Mayor’s Proclamation Honoring Community Bridges for 30 Years of Outstanding Service to the Santa Cruz County Community. Mayor Termini read the entire proclamation and commended and thanked Community Bridges for all the services they provide for the children, families and seniors of Santa Cruz County.

Council Member Storey said it was a real honor to accept the Mayor’s Proclamation on behalf of the staff, the board, and all the volunteers of Community Bridges. He said it has been a pleasure for him to serve Community Bridges for the past 24 years, and it is particularly fitting to receive this award during the holiday season, as the ability for Community Bridges and other such groups to exist depends on the spirit of giving that lives in Santa Cruz County. Community Bridges could not provide the services they do without the people who generously serve and give to their fellow human beings. He hopes their organization has lived up to the community’s high expectations; they will continue to serve everyone in the community.

Mayor’s Proclamations to Local Residents Who Have Recently Served Our Country Overseas [120-40] Mayor Termini spoke of the appreciation he and others who are unable to serve have for the service many men and women have given for our country. He would like to recognize several local residents who have recently served our country overseas, and who have willingly put themselves in harm’s way. Mayor Termini then called each honored person’s name and that person or a family member accepted the Mayor’s Proclamation in Appreciation for his service.

Before the final applause for all the proclamation recipients, Mayor Termini commented on those who made the ultimate sacrifice and did not make it back.

1. REPORT ON CLOSED SESSION [520-25] City Attorney Barisone said the items discussed in closed session were those listed on the posted agenda. He said the Council met with the City Attorney concerning two matters of pending litigation. The first item was Vieira Enterprises vs. City of Capitola regarding Cabrillo Mobile Estates service reduction award to the tenants. He informed the Council that he learned today that the tenants of the mobile home park are being served on that matter. City Attorney Barisone also informed the Council that although he cannot represent the park tenants, he could provide information. If they have questions, the tenants could contact him. No reportable action was taken.

Ms. Gotti submitted petitions with approximately 1,000 signatures expressing opposition to the proposed preschool and urging the City Council to keep the current community recreational facilities located at Jade Street Park as is. She further requested that the council give this matter its highest priority and save Jade Street Park for future generations.

Keith Gaylon, Capitola resident for over 20 years, gathered signatures on petitions Ron Lorenzo said he collected signatures, and everyone wants to keep the park.

Richard Glass, Opal Street resident Boris Seibert, Capitola resident, commented on the questions he asked Council Member Begun about this effort.
