PUSD and other Districts Lobbying State for Relief

first_imgEducation PUSD and other Districts Lobbying State for Relief Published on Tuesday, April 21, 2020 | 4:49 pm Top of the News Community News HerbeautyWhy Luxury Fashion Brands Are So ExpensiveHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty7 Most Startling Movie Moments We Didn’t Realize Were InsensitiveHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyIs It Bad To Give Your Boyfriend An Ultimatum?HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyStop Eating Read Meat (Before It’s Too Late)HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty10 Most Influential Women In HistoryHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyThis Trend Looks Kind Of Cool!HerbeautyHerbeauty Subscribe The Pasadena Unified School District, along with school officials in nearby cities are calling on the state to provide some relief to help districts impacted by the state’s Safer at Home order.The Los Angeles County Office of Education is also advocating with state leadership on behalf of districts for budget, program, and Local Control & Accountability Plan flexibilities; funding protections; resources for online learning, and other actions to protect fiscal solvency.The district may not receive a full allotment of money from Measure J due to lowered sales tax revenue caused by the shutdown of businesses throughout the city during the Coronavirus outbreak.“PUSD and other districts share the cost of a lobbying group which lobbies the relevant state folks on behalf of all of us. We are hopeful that the governor will provide relief from perhaps the 3 percent reserve requirement in the out years of our budget (21-22 and 22-23),” said PUSD Board Vice-President Scott Phelps. “We also would hope that the state uses its rainy day reserve because of course these times are what it is for.  While that is not just for schools, school funding is required to be at a level of at least 40 percent of the state general fund budget per Prop 98.”The district is still receiving annual daily attendance funds, and last Friday district officials applied for a FEMA grant.The pandemic forced local school districts to close around the country for safety reasons.State legislators announced weeks ago that new budget requests made in January were suspended and Gov. Gavin Newsom has made it clear that COVID-19 updates make it clear that he believes that schools will be an integral part of the state’s mid-term pandemic response, according to PUSD Board President Patrick Cahalan.“Thus the expectation must be that local school districts will have to do far more than their usual business in the upcoming months,” Cahalan said. “Opening in-person instruction with reasonable social distancing, for example, would require a large addition of staff.  However, with the state budget so dependent upon income and capital gains taxes, it is also already abundantly clear that state revenue will take a significant hit in this calendar year.  It is unknown what the state budget for education will look like in June with the demand for more services competing with a lack of structural funding.  I personally hope the governor is taking a realistic view of what districts can do with the resources available to them and assigns new funding accordingly, but hope by itself does not ensure a workable budget.”Right now the district is better off than some other districts. Officials already had Chromebooks for students and a curriculum in place by the time students were sent home.In comparison, the Los Angeles Unified School District virus response will cost the district $200 million. The district’s entire budget is roughly $8 billion, according to Superintendent Austin Beutner.The district faced state takeover two years ago when it came precariously close to being unable to meet its three percent reserve.City officials vowed to use money from a three-quarter cent tax increase to help the district maintain its reserves. However, since businesses have been closed there is less sales tax, and the city is forced to use more of those funds to keep basic city services running smoothly.“The Los Angeles County Office of Education is working closely with all 80 districts to help them prepare for and successfully weather the financial challenges that lie ahead,” said Margo Minecki, public information officer at LACOE.“LACOE is assisting districts in reviewing budget priorities, monitoring and evaluating program spending, and adjusting budget projections to align with available resources to ensure solvency.”The governor usually submits his revised budget in May. About 40 percent of that usually goes to education.However, this year tax day has been pushed back until July, which means Gov. Newsome won’t know much about actual receipts when he issues the revised budget in May according to Phelps.“We are advocating with the state for flexibility and support so that PUSD can be prepared to support our students and lead our community’s return to normal times.  Depending on how flexible the state is, we need to be prepared to support our students in a different environment when they return,” Phelps said.

Pasadena’s Lucky Boy Burgers Sues Postmates

first_img Community News Pasadena’s Lucky Boy walk-up burger eatery filed suit today against the Postmates delivery service for allegedly using unfair business practices to penalize the diner for refusing to allow the courier company to deliver its food.Lucky Boy, which operates its popular roadside grill off of Arroyo Parkway, contends trademark infringement and unfair competition, alleging the delivery service uses its name without authorization and intentionally posts a menu bearing incorrect information for the diner, including lower prices.Because Lucky Boy refuses to be associated with the app, the delivery service retaliates by offering “alternatives with similar food when Lucky Boy is searched for, and this too diverts business away from Lucky Boy,” according to the suit filed in Los Angeles federal court.A message seeking comment from San Francisco-based Postmates was not immediately answered.“Not all restaurants want to be associated or affiliated with third-party food delivery services,” according to the suit.A Lucky Boy employee confirmed that the eatery is not affiliated with any on-demand delivery service.Food courier services like Postmates, DoorDash, Uber Eats and GrubHub have become increasingly popular over the past year due to the coronavirus pandemic. Consumers use an online platform, usually an app, to order, a driver picks up the food at the restaurant and delivers the meal to the customer for an additional charge.According to the complaint, Postmates “generates revenue by charging delivery service fees to both the consumer and the eating establishment. For example, a restaurant has to pay a commission on the food that it sells and the consumer pays a percentage of the sales price.”Lucky Boy states it doesn’t want to be in business with Postmates because its service fees are too high.“Upon information and belief, defendant Postmates charges restaurants approximately 30% of each food order which causes some restaurants to actually lose money,” the plaintiff alleges.“Also Postmates only pays monthly. The high rates and slow pay are unacceptable. This is especially true in a pandemic when restaurants have faced unprecedented challenges in trying to remain open and pay overhead.”In July, the City Council approved a temporary cap of 20 percent on total fees and commissions that online and app-based delivery services can charge eateries, including a 15% limit on the delivery-fee portion of an order.Lucky Boy is a family-owned corporation that has been in business since 1960, founded by two brothers from Greece who started in the San Gabriel Valley after Europe was decimated from war.There are two Lucky Boy locations in Pasadena: the walk-up diner owned by the plaintiff in the lawsuit and the Walnut Street location, which is licensed to family members.

In addition to contributing to DSNews.com, he is also the online editor for DS News’ sister publication, MReport, which focuses on mortgage banking news. A gauge of leading economic indicators in the United States showed solid growth in September, suggesting moderate economic expansion to finish out the year.The Conference Board’s Leading Economic Index, a measure of economic developments as an indicator of future trends, increased 0.8 percent last month to 104.4 following a downwardly revised August reading that showed no change.The index tracks a handful of component indicators, including labor market conditions, housing construction activity, and credit conditions.According to the Conference Board, most of the index’s components have picked up momentum in the last half-year, suggesting moderate expansion in the economy for the remainder of 2014.Nine of the ten components contributed to the latest increase, led by improvements in the spread between long and short rates. The index’s credit component was also a major contributor, adding 0.11 percentage points as banks gradually loosen credit standards.On the other hand, housing construction contributed little to September’s index, adding 0.05 percentage points as permits for new projects proved lackluster for that month.”Permits could come under some pressure going forward as the NAHB builder’s sentiment index fell five points to 54, following four-straight months of gains,” Wells Fargo analysts Tim Quinlan and Zachary Griffiths said in a note. “This could simply be a result of the typical buying season coming to an end; however, this was a sizable drop and may be a sign of caution going forward.””The financial markets are reflecting turmoil and unease, but the data on the leading indicators continue to suggest moderate growth in the short-term,” said Ken Goldstein, Economist at The Conference Board. “Meanwhile, the weak advances in the housing market remain a bigger risk to the outlook than short-term financial gyrations.”The Conference Board’s other monthly economic indices, which measure lagging and current indicators, also grew in September, though at a more modest rate: The Coincident Economic Index was up 0.4 percent to 110.2, according to the group, while the Lagging Economic Index ticked up 0.1 percent to 125.1.

Legislature will decide on N. Tioga/Sears Street purchase Tuesday

first_imgITHACA, N.Y. — Tompkins County legislators are poised to vote next week on whether to purchase property on the 400 block of North Tioga Street for $1.8 million with the plan to use the parcels for a new county office building.At a joint session Wednesday, two committees — the Facilities and Infrastructure and the Budget, Capital, and Personnel Committees — recommended the county purchase the properties in Fall Creek. The site is close to the present Tompkins County Courthouse and contains a small collection of adjoining tax parcels at 408 and 412-414 N. Tioga St. and 117 and 119 Sears St.The resolution approved by the committees states that the North Tioga property “is the best option for a new office building site where multiple offices could be consolidated at a single location.”At the last Tompkins County Legislature meeting on April 2, Tompkins County Administrator Jason Molino presented a feasibility study with 10 possible scenarios for how to use the space. In the options, the office space ranges from 37,000 to 46,000 square feet; 25 to 42 parking spaces; and explores adding housing to the site on Sears Street — something the city and neighbors have requested.Molino said zoning will pose a particular challenge as there are three overlapping zones at the site. Though real estate comes at a premium in central Ithaca, this property likely hasn’t been developed because of the “odd zoning configuration,” he said.“The property is not easily developable with the current zoning arrangement with the different overlaps in the zoning code,” Molino said.View the presentation from April 2 which shows the different scenarios in more detail here.In some of the scenarios presented, the county would add housing on Sears Street. Neighbors to the site, some of whom spoke at Tompkins County Legislature on April 2, said they would like to see owner-occupied housing with parking. Nancy Osborn, who lives in the neighborhood, read a statement April 2 signed by 25 neighbors. “We who are residents and property owners in the Cascadilla Creek neighborhood, which consists of Cascadilla Avenue, Court, Sears, and Tioga streets, would support the Tompkins County Legislature’s proposal to develop the Tioga, Sears Street properties if it includes residential housing on Sears Street with adequate off-street parking and is preferably owner-occupied housing,” Osborn read.A few variations of housing have been explored so far. Some options include three standalone residential houses, another includes five townhomes. In another, the county could construct four residential units in two duplexes or create one single-family home. Two scenarios include no residential housing.The Sears Street side of the parcel. (Devon Magliozzi/The Ithaca Voice)At Common Council on April 3, Alderperson Seph Murtagh introduced a resolution to put the city’s preferences for the Sears/Tioga project on record before the Legislature vote, though Common Council doesn’t have control over what the county does with the site. Common Council urged the county to honor the city’s Comprehensive Plan and respect the character of the neighborhood by “dedicating the entire Sears Street frontage of the county’s proposed office consolidation project site for affordable residential use.”The county is looking to purchase the space and consolidate some offices to save money on leases. The county also wants to prioritize moving the county clerk out of the basement of the Tompkins County Court building which would free up space to relocate the district attorney’s office and cramped grand jury room and make space for a third judge in the court building. In presenting the feasibility study, Molino said other county offices and buildings have inefficient layouts and are overcrowded. Another issue is that several public-facing departments are not located in a single location, so moving them to one space would make it easier for people who need to visit multiple departments.On Tuesday, April 16, the full Tompkins County Legislature will vote on the purchase at the regular Tompkins County Legislature meeting that begins at 5:30 p.m. Legislators will not be voting on which scenario to choose, only whether to purchase the properties.Featured image: The Tioga Street side of the property (Devon Magliozzi/Ithaca Voice) Kelsey O’Connor center_img Your government news is made possible with support from: Tagged: ithaca, sears street, tioga street, tompkins county, tompkins county legislature Kelsey O’Connor is the managing editor for the Ithaca Voice.

Man ‘faked a heart attack’ before CVS robbery: Police

first_imgMalden Police Department(MALDEN, Mass.) — Police in Massachusetts said they’re still searching for a man who faked a heart attack while his accomplice tried raiding a drugstore’s cash register.Jesse Meharg, 30, and Vyacheslav Phinney, 31, fled from a CVS in Malden after the caper on Sunday, with police locating and arresting Phinney on Tuesday, ABC Boston affiliate WCVB-TV reported.Meharg, who “faked a heart attack” to create a distraction while Phinney lept toward the register, remains at large, police told WCVB.The Malden Police Department released surveillance footage of the incident in which the men try to flee but are tripped by a bystander, sending wads of cash flying in the air.Meharg appears to be scrambling for fistfuls of bills before running off, leaving behind his knit cap.Malden police joked on Facebook that their continued pursuit of Meharg is not only to make sure he’s “held accountable” but to “make sure his ‘heart problems’ have been taken care of by a medical professional.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
