• City Council will Discuss Transient Occupancy Tax Increase

    On the agenda for Wed., July 18, 2018:
    1. An increase in the TOT from 10 – 12% of the amount paid by the transient is estimated to yield an additional $1,135,000 in revenues annual. This estimate is based upon updated projections for the period ending in Fiscal Year 17/18, and DOES NOT take into consideration any adjustments for the short-term rental license lottery held earlier this year, or the proposed citizen’s short-term rental initiative that will be on the November 6, 2018 ballot.
    2. The estimated cost of consolidating the next election (November 6) with the Monterey County Elections Office is $6-$8 per voter or $58,206 to $77,608. This estimated cost, provided by the Monterey County Elections office in January 2018, is for the City’s local candidates, and any City measure and/or initiatives.

  • 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.
