Gundry issued the following statement regarding the passage of Proposition 30:“I am pleased that Californians approved Proposition 30 and chose to invest in the K-12 and higher education institutions that define our state. Despite the passage of this measure, the fiscal situation in PUSD remains dire. Proposition 30 does not bring new money to the district but rather prevents us from losing more this school year. The combination of a structural deficit and declining enrollment will force the district to make an estimated $10.3 – $12 million in cuts for the 2013-2014 school year depending on future tax revenue from the state.”“Proposition 30 prevents automatic cuts to this school year and keeps state funding formulas from decreasing further but did not address the damage that has been done over the last several years. Over the last five years, revenue that PUSD has received from the state has decreased by $35.7 million or 17.6 Percent. Student enrollment has dropped by an estimated 10.5% over that same period. Multimillion dollar cuts have depleted our reserves. One-time federal funds and other grants have lapsed.”“As a community, we must consider every option to maintain the fiscal viability of the district today and into the future. Two of the associations that represent district employees agreed to contingency language before the election that allow a limited number of work furloughs to take affect in 2013. We also need the United Teachers of Pasadena and California School Employees Association Local 434 to partner with us. It is critical that together we find a solution that will allow us to continue to provide a high quality educational experience for all PUSD students and keep as many of our hard working personnel employed as possible.”“I will continue work with the Board of Education to examine all possible austerity measures to make sure that this district is solvent for next year as well as years to come. I urge the public to stay informed and involved as we discuss the fiscal future of the Pasadena Unified School District. The decisions before us will irrevocably affect the future of public education in our community.”For full details, view this message on the web. Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

“Tell Us What You Think” Public Safety Discussions in Sierra Madre

first_imgGovernment “Tell Us What You Think” Public Safety Discussions in Sierra Madre Published on Wednesday, October 21, 2015 | 5:54 pm EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box. Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. The City of Sierra Madre invites members of the community to participate in an upcoming meeting for the Sheriff’s Contract Proposal Review Committee. The Committee will be interviewing the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department as a potential contractor at that time and, based on their findings, will formulate a recommendation to the City Council. The recommendation is set to be presented at the next City Council meeting being held on October 27th.The committee was created in an effort to manage City resources in the wake of a diminishing UUT (Utility User Tax). The tax is set to decrease to 6% from the previous 8% on July 1, 2016; the equivalent of a $400,000 reduction in general fund revenue. The UUT makes up the second largest source of the City’s general fund revenue and has already seen a $500,000 reduction from the previous fiscal year.Lacking additional sources of revenue to replace the lost UUT, coupled with an inflationary growth in expenditures, the City could reach a million dollar deficit in 2016. While Sierra Madre seeks to continue operating efficiently and maintain the quality services its residents have come to enjoy, the budgetary impact could lead to severe cuts in local amenities including public safety.The Sheriff’s Contract Proposal Review Committee will meet in City Hall Council Chambers on Monday, October 26, 2015 at 6:00 p.m. This committee meeting is NOT televised. We invite those unable to attend to submit their questions and concerns via email at: [email protected] the latest information on these committees and more, visit the City’s website at www.cityofsierramadre.com.

Two of the robberies occurred a single block apart on one street, North Mar Vista Avenue, while the other happened on North Euclid Avenue.The suspects conducted each armed robbery in almost the same fashion – walking up to the victim from behind, threatening the victim with a handgun, and then fleeing in a black SUV with the loot, Pasadena police Watch Commander Lt. Mark Goodman said.Goodman said the first robbery occurred at about 10:20 p.m. in the 400 block of Mar Vista Avenue, when a 26-year-old Pasadena woman was robbed at gunpoint as soon as she arrived home.“The victim was approached by the suspect from behind and pushed to the ground. Once on the ground, the suspect pointed a gun at her, and demanded money,” Goodman said. “The victim gave her gym bag containing her wallet and a cellphone. The suspect walked away north on Mar Vista, entered a black SUV and drove away.”At about 10:52 p.m., a 46-year-old man was robbed as he was walking home in the 600 block of Mar Vista, this time by two male suspects that exited a black SUV as the victim passed by. Goodman said one of the suspects pointed gun at the victim, and another went through his pockets and removed “an undisclosed amount of U.S. currency.”“The first suspect was male, black, of thin build, wore dark-colored pants and was armed with a handgun,” Goodman said. “The other was male, black, thin build, and was wearing a black hat. Once they obtained the loss, both suspects entered the SUV and drove away southbound.”Police believe the same suspects, and possibly others who could have stayed in the black SUV, went on to rob another victim, a 30-year-old man, in the 400 block of N. Euclid Avenue, at about 10:54 p.m.“The victim was walking home when one of the suspects walked up to him holding a handgun and demanded his wallet,” Goodman said. “The second suspect grabbed a beige tote bag the victim was holding and that contained his wallet and cellphone.”As in the first two incidents, the suspects entered a black SUV and drove away south. Goodman said the first suspect was in his 20s, black-haired, thin build and wore a red hooded sweatshirt. The other suspect wore a light-colored sweatshirt.Goodman said none of the victims in the three armed robberies required medical treatment, including the woman who was pushed to the ground in the first incident.Goodman said by the descriptions and the modus operandi, the three robberies appeared to be related.“If we catch them, they are going to be charged with assault and also the armed robbery cases,” Goodman said. “At this point, any information [from the public about the suspects] is welcome by the Pasadena Police Department through our 24-hour dispatch line.”Anyone with information about the suspects and the robbery incidents is advised to call (626) 744-4501.
