The city of Belmont is experi-encing revenue growth but as theCity Council prepares to approveits budget for the upcoming fiscalyear, it is taking lessons learnedfrom the economic recession andapplying it by bolstering itsreserves while balancing its needto fund decades of deferred infra-structure maintenance.While keeping the goal of sta-bility in mind, some councilmem-bers would like to fund initiativessuch as planning to create avibrant downtown and improve-ments to Belmont’s parks andRalston Avenue.The council will vote June 10 toapprove its fiscal year 2014-15budget, said the city’s FinanceDirector Thomas Fil. “It was a shake-up for every-body, the extent of the recessionwas unprecedented in most peo-ple’s lifetimes,” Fil said. “Wecould see that we had to make seri-ous changes … and made somestructural changes and employeesstepped up to the plate andchanged their benefit programs.All those factors are now workingto help us be in a much strongerposition. So the silver lining tohave gone through that recessionwas, I think we’re stronger inmany respects and more resilientthan we’d been in the past.”Mayor Warren Lieberman andCouncilman Eric Reed said thecity’s strong financial positioncould primarily be credited thefinance department’s wise recom-mendations and staff who agreedto contribute more toward theirretirement plans.

DAILY JOURNAL STAFF REPORT
Local and state agriculture officials areinvestigating whether Oriental fruit flies arebreeding in San Mateo County after a singlefly was found in the city of San Carlos.The Oriental fruit fly targets hundreds of fruit, vegetables and plants which is whyofficials are keen to identify and eradicateany local populations. The female flies layeggs inside ripening fruit. The eggs hatchinto maggots that eat through the fruit’sflesh and leave it inedible and unsellable.Fred Crowder, the San Mateo County agri-cultural commissioner, and the CaliforniaDepartment of Food and Agricultureannounced jointly Monday they are con-ducting an extensive survey in response tothe discovery of the single Oriental fruit fly.The survey will lay an extra 350 traps overroughly 81 square miles around the areawhere the fly was trapped. “Early detection of these extremely dam-aging pests is critical to effective controland to minimize impacts to both the agri-cultural and urban communities,” Crowdersaid in a prepared statement.Officials are also asking that residentsdon’t transport or mail fresh fruit, vegeta-bles, plants or soil into California unlessinspectors have first cleared the shipment asthe flies can hide in a variety of produce.The Oriental fruit fly is found in much of Southern Asia including neighboringislands like Sri Lanka and Taiwan and inHawaii. The most common way the fliesenter the state is through fruit and vegeta-bles illegally brought back to Californiafrom infested global regions by travelers. Locally, the flies target fruit and vegeta-bles including apples, pears, plums, apri-cots, cucumbers, figs, loquats, oranges,peaches, persimmons, grapes, tomatoesand walnuts. Residents with questions about the fliesand the survey traps should contact the SanMateo County Agricultural Commissioner’sOffice during weekday work hours at 363-4700 or the California Department of Foodand Agriculture Pest Hotline at (800) 491-1899.
