Salary brouhaha



Regarding the letter by Phyllis Myslik (Jan. 28), I am appalled to read that the city manager of the sleepy town of Agoura Hills receives such an enormous annual salary. In addition, his assistant receives almost the same amount. This amount of money is an outrage. I’d like to know what the manager and his assistant do on a daily/weekly/monthly […]

League of extraordinary Chargers

Agoura captures first Marmonte League title since 2011 season



Agoura High’s boys’ soccer players said they were concerned about the state of the program heading into this season. The Chargers mustered three wins in the Marmonte League the previous two years combined. The school brought in head coach Jayro Martinez in July to try to resuscitate Agoura.

The Rondell hotel is inappropriate to build in that specific location. It is four stories high, which is not allowed by city code and no exceptions should be made. If the city allows one four-story hotel, it has to let others. The hotel blocks a beautiful multi-million-dollar-a-year view in exchange for, at most, only $625,000 in taxes. That’s a bad […]

City wage adjustment misses the mark



The City of Calabasas employs 135 people on a part-time hourly basis with no benefits. They do however, have an “Hourly wage range/step schedule.” This matrix shows that there are 10 steps in each job category, the same type of matrix that is used for full-time employees. On Oct. 28, 2015 City Council approved Resolution 2015-1480 approving a new salary […]
