The city promised the public works yard would be "turn-key" and move in ready. Two years and two million dollars later it is finally turn-key. On Friday the City held a ribbon cutting for the new public works yard.

Here is what Councilmember Bond said about the purchase, “Now, I guess we’re in somewhat of a situation of buyer’s remorse.”
Discussion of the ballot propositions will be held next week and hosted by the League of Women Voters.

Stocks, 51, an insurance agent, said he wants to stay on the council so he can continue to represent the city on regional boards, too.
He said the city would benefit from keeping him on the boards of the North County Transit District and the San Diego Association of Governments as planning and construction proceed for widening Interstate 5 and pedestrian crossings along the railway.
“I feel like the system and the voters have invested in me, and it would be premature to step down because we've got such serious items on the table,” Stocks said...
Reports from the county grand jury don't usually get much attention. A recent one should be the exception.
Earlier this month the grand jury released a report on San Diego's water future. While we've heard a lot in the last year about water problems, it typically involves pleas by water authorities for people to conserve water.
