  • City Council OKs contracts with two law firms

    COSTA MESA — The City Council on Tuesday approved contracting with one law firm to see the city through its workforce outsourcing effort, and a second law firm to defend those contentious outsourcing plans in court. In a 3-1 vote, the council...

  • Community Commentary: Council majority wants to pull wool over our eyes

    The Costa Mesa City Council's proposed charter amendment is just another attempt to force its self-interested political agenda on the city. If there is anything we have learned since the council first attempted to lay off half the city's employees, it's...

    COSTA MESA — Coast Community College District officials took a first stab at closing a $7.6-million budget gap next year with off-the-cuff ideas that avoid workforce reductions. The District Budget Advisory Committee, comprised of district and...
  • Community Commentary: Actually, city should work with union

    Re. "Unions should work with city," Community Commentary (Sept. 15): Why not have the title read, "City should work with unions"? When the City Council starts ruling with an iron fist from the very beginning — the 206 layoff notices — how...
  • Community Commentary: Don't believe City Hall's spin on finances
