What’s another way the county could boost revenue?

lt cheriI think that it would be better to have more leniency on the permits for small businesses in the city. I think the city would be able to get more revenue if small businesses were able to move through the whole process quicker. I think that would be helpful.

If they would spend a little time and money cleaning up downtown it would make it a little more tourist and family friendly. And it would bring some money and also some sales-tax revenue.

santa cruz has the ocean as a background the city should benefit from it creating a festival related to the sea, from arts and crafts, surfing day to ''''sea mermaid day family friendly day''' what about art and pearls and pirate day umm/ it will be fan...good for business... .
promote the sea as a sacred gift not just as a highway to boats but also for people to be aware of it;s power and how gifted we are to have a sea right in our yards,

what about fairy day for families ....

Sugar: The New Tobacco?

Proposed bill would require warning labels on sugary drinks Will soda and other saccharine libations soon come with a health warning? They will if it’s up to our state senator, Bill Monning (D-Carmel). On Feb. 27, Monning proposed first-of-its-kind legislation that would require a consumer warning label be placed on sugar-sweetened beverages sold in California.
