More pointedly, the reportalso dings the district’s managerand 21-member board for turning ablind eye, an allegation the jurysays is bolstered by its insurancecompany denying the $790,000loss claim.The report said trustees are “con-fused” about their responsibilitiesand cities don’t prioritize havingrepresentation on the districtboard. The internal financial con-trols were “inadequate,” importantpolicies were not followed andthere were significant differencesof opinion about whether districtmanager Robert Gay is equipped tomanage the district, the jury con-cluded.The grand jury recommends thecounty’s Local Agency FormationCommission take a second look atdissolving the mosquito districtand transferring its services to thecounty’s environmental healthdepartment.

Millbrae needs to find itsown identity. We can’t beBurlingame Avenue or Tanforan. Iwant this to be more like SantanaRow. We want to be a world-classcity that has a small-town feel.”

Last summer, Laurel Street inSan Carlos welcomed a new bar,Ale Arsenal, to its 900 block. Thebar offers 24 rotating beers on tapfrom international and local brew-eries.Passersby might notice, howev-er, that this venue opened up just afew steps down Laurel Street fromRefuge restaurant, which has astrong focus on Belgian beer.But close proximity doesn’tappear to affect how the two ven-ues operate successfully.“We did hope it would be symbi-otic, and we weren’t trying to stealtheir thunder,” Ale Arsenal co-owner Lauren Bozicevic said. “AndI don’t think it has worked out totheir disadvantage.”Refuge opened in March 2008under chef/owner Matt Levin. The41-year-old gained experience in anumber of upscale restaurants(even in Paris for a time) beforemoving north from Long Beach in2004 and working at San Mateo’sViognier. But Levin had even big-ger ideas, and the spot at 963Laurel St. was the right spot tomake it happen.

Sales tax favoredbut ballot date unclear
The week of July 19, 2008, it wasbecoming more likely that SanCarlos voters would beasked to pass a half-cent sales tax aimed atraising $3 millionannually for 10 yearsand preventing an equal amount of cuts to critical city services likepolice, fire and parks.The unknown that week was if thequestion would be posed on theNovember ballot or in 2009. Revenuemeasures for general purposes, likethe one proposed, can be passed witha majority vote only if held during anelection in which councilmembers areup for re-election. Otherwise, a two-thirds majority is needed forapproval.Councilman Matt Grocott made nosecret he would not support a fiscalemergency declaration, throwing intoquestion whether the city can actsooner rather than later.The estimated $3 million per yeargenerated by a sales tax was to let thecity avoid a projected $1.3 million incuts in 2009-2010 and $1.45 millionin cuts the following fiscal year. Thefunds would also enable the city torestore $1 million each year to thegeneral capital projects fund.
School district infavor of parcel tax
Asurvey found strong support for a$78 annual parcel tax in the Belmont-Redwood Shores Elementary SchoolDistrict, it was revealedthe week of July 19,2008.Talks of a parcel taxbegan within the districtin May 2008. A$78 annualparcel tax lasting under nine yearsgenerated the best support, accordingto a study done by Godbe Research. Atax was supported by 72 percent of the 450 polled — with 69 percentsupporting a nine-year period and 78percent in favor of a five-year dura-tion. Such a measure requires a two-thirds yes vote to pass.
Auto shop ownersbanned from work
The auto body repair shop owneraccused, along with her husband, of defrauding car owners and insurancecompanies by faking rodent damagewas banned from conducting anyauto-related business and mustinform any future employers in theindustry of the charges, it wasreported the week of July 19, 2008.The state Attorney General’sOffice sought the prohibitionagainst Bita Imani, 35, and her hus-band, Mehran Baranriz, 45. Bothwere ordered back to court Nov. 3,2008 for a preliminary hearing witha two-week estimate. During thattime, according to the ban, the cou-ple could not perform any autorepairs or be involved in any auto-related.The couple owned and operatedGroup Specialist inRedwood City, an auto bodyshop specializing inMercedes and BMWvehi-cles.
Google shares plummetafter low earnings
Google Inc. shares plunged nearly10 percent the week of July 19,2008 after the Internet searchleader’s second-quarter earningsmissed analystsexpectations.Management said economic tur-moil in the United States and partsof Europe appeared to be causingconsumers to click less frequentlyon the ads that generate virtually allits profits.That unnerved already jitteryinvestors, although Google man-agers said they expect the MountainView-based company will thriveeven if the economy weakens fur-ther.Google’s stock price dropped$52.12, or 9.8 percent, to finish at$481.32, leaving it below $500 forthe first time in three months.

County officials are ready to lock up aname for the new correctional facility.If county supervisors agree Tuesday, thereplacement jail currently under construc-tion in Redwood City will be officiallyknown as the Maple Street CorrectionalCenter. The name is somewhere between thememorial name of the men’s jail — theMaguire Correctional Facility in referenceto former sheriff Brendan Maguire who waselected in 1983 and re-elected posthumouslyin 1986 — and the fairly straightforwardWomen’s Correctional Complex whichhouses female inmates, the men’s transi-tional facility and alternative sentencingbureau.The recommended name was chosen todenote the historical significance of itslocation east of Highway 101 and theemphasis on programming, transitionalhousing and services, according to Sheriff Greg Munks.The new jail’s address of 1300 Maple St.has already been approved by Redwood Cityand recognized by the U.S. Postal Service.The 4.58-acre site was previously“Chemical Way” and later called WoodhouseIndustrial Park.The 260,000-square-foot jail is scheduledto open next year. The design includes 576beds on three stories topped by a warm shell— 40 feet of unfinished space for futureexpansion — and is aimed at reducingchronic overcrowding at both the men’s andwomen’s facilities. The dilapidated women’s jail is also plagued by flooding and a lack of space for adequate programming and familyvisits.The jail itself is estimated to cost approx-imately $155 million with roughly $40million a year in operating expenses.Munks and other county officials are stillhoping that up to $100 million in state con-struction funds will come through.
