Discussing Issues Facing The City Of Sonora

Sponsored by:

Sonora, CA –This weekend’s Mother Lode Views guest is Sonora City Manager Mary Rose Rutikanga with an announcement regarding a high-tech new addition to the downtown area.

On this weekend’s Mother Lode Views, we will do a deep dive into the just-passed City of Sonora budget, and discuss other issues facing the city including the economy, homelessness, and the latest on the marijuana dispensary program. Rutikanga will detail what is targeted by the $3.8 million increase in the fiscal year 2021-22 budget from last year. She also announced plans for a new electric vehicle charging station in the city.

While the location has still not been chosen, she noted that on Monday the council approved buying a parking lot downtown, which is an option, adding, “So, with the purchase of that property downtown right on the corner of Washington and Church streets, adjacent to the old Umpqua Bank building, we are currently looking at potentially putting the electric vehicle charging station there, or whether it makes sense to put it in one of our parking structures. Regardless, it will be in the downtown area.”

Mother Lode Views airs Saturday and Sunday morning at 9:30 on AM 1450 and FM 102.7 KVML. Mother Lode Views can also be heard Sunday morning at 10 o’clock on 93.5 KKBN and at 9 a.m. on STAR 92.7.
