    • Enforcing the “Stay at Home” emergency orders from the State, LA County, and Santa Monica to protect lives by slowing the spread of COVID-19 
    • Providing essential city services while responsibly protecting the health of our workforce 
    • Mitigating the profound economic, social and environmental impacts of this crisis on our community residents and businesses

    While most city of Santa Monica employees are working from home during the coronavirus pandemic, some services still need people out in the field and are adapting their operations to protect workers and residents.

    In interviews with the Daily Press last week, city leaders said first responders are wearing personal protective equipment when necessary, monitoring their health and preparing for the lockdown’s possible consequences on public safety.

    It’s been eleven days since Governor Newsom’s “stay at home” order went into effect – and we are all adjusting to the new normal. No one knows how long this will last, but it seems like it will be at least a month under these – or even harsher – restrictions. 

    I can’t emphasize enough the gratitude I have for everyone who is doing their part by staying home. 

    Life has changed dramatically for Santa Monica, as it has across Southern California.

    With millions of people suddenly out of work and rent due at the first of the month, some tenants are vowing to go on a rent strike until the coronavirus pandemic subsides.

    New York, Boston, Los Angeles, San Francisco and St. Louis are among many cities that have temporarily banned evictions, but advocates for the strike are demanding that rent payments be waived, not delayed, for those in need during the crisis. The rent strike idea has taken root in parts of North America and as far away as London.

    Jon Coupal is president of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association

    From many corners, California politicians and tax officials are under increasing pressure to extend the current April 10 deadline for paying property tax bills.

    The request is not unreasonable and there are many ways that government can assist homeowners who are under threat of hefty penalties or tax foreclosures.

    The Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association, California’s leading protector of homeowners, has received numerous inquiries in the last three weeks of this crisis.
