Mayor Frost: City Hall Relocation Will Save Money

Story by Julia Baum
Posted: 3/25/2015

Citrus Heights City Hall
Officials say that moving Citrus Heights city hall now will save the city money and bring economic benefits.

CITRUS HEIGHTS, CA (MPG) - City officials say that Citrus Heights residents would save a significant amount of money if the City Council approves a proposed new city hall and medical office building at their next meeting on March 26th.

After more than a year of discussion and debate, the vote will finally determine the fate of both projects. If passed, a new city hall will be built on Stock Ranch Road, just several hundred feet from its current location at Greenback Lane and Fountain Square Drive, which would then become the site of a new medical office building for Dignity Health.

Anti-Domestic Violence Activist Named Woman of the Year

CITRUS HEIGHTS, CA (MPG) - “Imagine a woman who…” That’s the unfinished sentence on the wall at the headquarters for A Community for Peace, led by Executive Director Elaine Whitefeather who was named Woman of the Year on March 9th by State Assemblyman Ken Cooley.

The rest of the wall is filled with the writing of domestic violence victims who completed a series of workshops at A Community for Peace and completed the sentence with notions like, “Knows who she is and owns who she is,” or, “Chooses to be a survivor instead of a victim.”

The symbolic wall of words speaks volumes to the reasons Whitefeather was honored at the State Capitol for her work as a voice and helping hand for victims of domestic violence in the greater Sacramento area. The wall, she says, is representative of victims being able to break the rules and think outside the box.

Two Dozen Fake Contractors Nailed in Sting Op

Posted: 3/13/2015

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - Two separate undercover sting operations conducted in Roseville and Sacramento during the past week by investigators from the Contractors State License Board’s (CSLB) Statewide Investigative Fraud Team (SWIFT) netted 23 individuals for illegal contracting.

“It’s always important to call or check CSLB’s website to make sure the contractor you’re considering has a valid state contractor license,” said CSLB Registrar Cindi Christenson. “But during good weather there’s also an increase in home improvement projects and the number of illegal contractors who put you at risk.”

CSLB investigators issued nine misdemeanor citations during a one-day sting on February 24th at a home in North Sacramento. The Sacramento County District Attorney’s office and California Highway Patrol assisted in the operation. A different SWIFT team cited 14 people for illegal contracting on February 18th and 19th at a home near the Placer County Fairgrounds with the assistance of the Placer County District Attorney’s Office.

Posted: 2/27/2015

CITRUS HEIGHTS, CA (MPG) - A city-backed initiative received national recognition on February 17th as it was revealed that the “Energy Bag Pilot Program” in Citrus Heights successfully produced 512 gallons of synthetic crude oil from typically non-recyclable plastic items.

“We were very proud to be the first community in America to participate in the Energy Bag initiative,” said Mayor Sue Frost. “The program demonstrated how communities nationwide can benefit by diverting typically non-recycled plastics from landfills and give them new life as an energy resource.”

Sponsored by Dow Chemical, the Flexible Packaging Association, Republic Services, Agilyx, Reynolds Consumer Products and the city of Citrus Heights, the initiative began in 2014 and purple collection bags known as “Energy Bags” were distributed throughout the community.
