     Certified the EIR, approved the Mitigation Monitoring and Reporting Program, and approved the City’s Local Water Project.

     Continued the City’s membership in the Monterey County Convention and Visitors Bureau.

     Directed staff to consider options for investing a portion of the City’s reserves in the local community, through economic development and related efforts.

     Received a report on CalPERS’s updated valuation reports for the City, and reactivated the Council’s sub-committee that has taken the lead on the many improvements that the City has undertaken to reduce the impact of the CalPERS system on the City’s financial security.

  • Beach Report Card


    This is the Heal the Bay Beach Report Card for Monterey Peninsula beaches, which reports water quality grades, or when relevant, weather advisories. An A to F grade is assigned based on the health risks of swimming or surfing at that location. Look at the "dry" grade for all days except those "wet" days during and within 3 days after a rainstorm. Click here for more information on the Beach Report Card. Click the name of the beach when it pops up for more details, or choose a beach below.
