unlikely any other county has met threshold. It is broken
down by percentage of people testing positive and
negative. We have increased testing and our percent
positive is decreasing, which is encouraging. For

There is a pool of money left from the transportation
tax dedicated to pedestrian initiatives. City has agreed
to add sidewalks within Victoria Park at no cost to the
neighborhood. Vote not necessary since it does not
involve any VPCA funds, but any concerns can be
emailed to email@example.com. Project will begin at
Holiday Park on public property. More information on
project plans will be coming in next few months.
Code Enforcement: Inspector Paulette DelGrosso
Duties have been modiﬁed to have Paulette assist with
public safety and monitor non-essential businesses
that may be operating so she has not been in Victoria
Park on a daily basis since the ofﬁce has decided to
focus on safety and nuisance matters. Residents can
still make a code complaint, but Paulette may not be
able to cite for it until further notice. Minor situations
are delayed due to possible ﬁnancial burden and until
daily activities resume. The cases will not be closed, just
not acted upon until a date further in future.
The signage for businesses along Federal Highway has
been more lenient as some businesses have little to no
choice in advertising that they are available for take-
out and/or curbside sales.
The damaged decorative street sign at NE 6th St and
8th Ave has been reported and will be addressed.
The manager of the Hustler store has assured Paulette
that someone will be on-site to address trash and
clothes hanging on fencing in back parking lot. Code
cannot remove trespassers, but the suggestion was
made to trim the trees along the line to discourage
campers in the area. Vice Mayor Glassman’s ofﬁce
indicated the City Manager has been made aware
and involved in the situation for options.
Paulette has addressed the bulk piles that were out a
week early from pick-up.
Paulette suggested conﬁrming that your vial has your
information, so it is sourced to the right location and not
rejected by the lab.
