River City High Music Boosters Present West Cap Fest The River City High Music Boosters will be presenting the 2nd Annual West Cap Fest on Saturday, January 14th at the West Sacramento Community Center. The festival is a benefit for music programs at River City High School. The six-band live music festival will include The River City High School Big Band with guest vocalist Cindy Tuttle, and five well-known local professional bands including headliners Joy and Madness and The Harley White Jr. Orchestra. Other bands performing are The City of Trees Brass Band, The Bathtub Gins and bluesman Lew Fratis and Friends. There will be two stages, a Dance Party stage upstairs, and a more relaxed jazz and roots stage downstairs, with three acts each. Doors open at 5 p.m. and music starts at 5:30 p.m. with the RC Big Band. Net proceeds from the festival will benefit music programs at River City High School. The River City High School Music Boosters is a non-profit organization supporting music programs at the high school in West Sacramento. The Music Boosters provide support for the Marching Band, Symphonic Band, Wind Ensemble, Orchestra, Choir and other music instruction and performance opportunities for students. In addition to purchasing instruments, equipment, repairs, and band uniforms, donated funds pay for sheet music, transportation, festival entry

fees, supplemental instructors, special music education programs, and ongoing operating costs. All of the Boosters funding comes from community members, businesses, parents, and Music Booster fund raising activities. Fundraising activities include performances, events, product sales, and direct donations. In addition to West Cap Fest, the boosters will also be holding a Mardi Gras Crabfeed Fundraiser on Feb. 25 at the California Auto Museum (tickets: https://goo.gl/LpxoN1). The River City High band wind pro-

gram started out as the River City Regiment in 2010. Back then only 16 students were enrolled. Under the direction of Tony Marvelli, the program has grown considerably with the formation of four main ensembles-- the Wind Ensemble, the RC Big Band, Symphonic Band, and Marching Band. This growth has provided education and performance opportunities for significantly more students. In addition the high school offers instruction in Choir, Vocal Ensemble and Piano.

Since 2010, the expanded “Regiment” has earned several first and second place trophies and other recognition at various area competitions. The Wind Ensemble has performed at the Mondavi Center and received a unanimous superior rating from a panel of collegiate judges. Prior to that performance the ensemble won three years of unanimous superior ratings from the regional Golden Empire Music Festival. See Boosters, page 7

Water, sewer and refuse utility rates reviewed by city council By Jan Dalske

The last time the West Sacramento City Council adjusted rates for water, sewer and refuse utilities was in June of 2011.  At that time they approved a five-year increase in all of the rates. Prior to the approval of the water rates by the council, city staff had prepared an analysis of water demands versus supply, and a comparison of utility rates in local cities.They also addressed efforts that could reduce operating costs. Staff conducted the required Proposition 218 public hearing process that is now mandatory for any fee increases for specific services, such as water, sewer, or lighting, etc. Proposition 218, which states says that fees for services cannot exceed the

cost of service in total, be used for other purposes, exceed propositional cost of service to customer or customer class, fund services not immediately available or fund General Government Services, must be a part of the process. The rate structure that was approved at that time is currently in place. But, this rate structure did not forecast past July of 2015. The 2015 Water Master Plan guaranteed that the city of West Sacramento’s water infrastructure would serve not only its current customers but also future customers. In July of 2016 staff presented the draft Water Master Plan and Sanitary Sewer Master Plan Updates to the city council. Included in the plans were proposed infrastructure improvements and facilities.

At this same meeting the council approved a new contract with Waste Management which takes effect in July of 2017. At that meeting, staff members asked the city council to provide them with guidance on both the water and sewer financial analysis process. They also requested descriptions of generally accepted principles, methods of determining revenue requirements and rate design. The meeting included CIP projects that were broken down into five-year phases. These breakdowns did not include the actual drafts of the master plans. The city council inquired as to whether the Water Master Plan included information regarding smart infrastructure, leak detection, and smart meters, which can be read from another location, and

contaminant containment. The city staff believes it is important to develop a utility rate system which is based on the rate setting principles for each utility fund. Another objective is to establish cost reduction measures and new technologies that will minimize the impact for the rate payers. They plan to conduct comprehensive regional utility rate comparisons. There is a proposal to adopt a rebate program for low income households which could be funded from the Measure K revenues for residential customers. The credits from Measure K will phase out as customers transition from the flat rate to the metered rate. The proposed water rates include fully funded the operations and maintenance expenses, proposed debt service payments

and adequate funding for the capital improvement plan. The city’s combined proposed rate will be the third lowest in the region. The sewer rates, the collection portion only, are the lowest in the region. The refuse rates for solid waste are the fourth lowest in the region. This rate is based on a 64-gallon cart collected one time per week. The waste hauler contract may not increase by more than 4 percent each year after the base year. The refuse fund has been operating in a deficit for the last several years. The waste hauler charges were higher than the customer rates. Franchise fees helped make up the difference. Discussions about the various utility rate charges will continue at the next West Sacramento City Council meeting.

New California laws take effect in the New Year By Lance Armstrong With the turning of another calendar year, a slew of new state laws will take effect. Here are some of the laws that will impact the community: Tobacco use near youth sporting events

Senate Bill (SB) 977, a tobacco-related bill that was sponsored by students of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic School, went into effect on Jan. 1. The bill, which was authored by Sen. Dr. Richard Pan (D-Sacramento), makes it illegal for any per-

son to use tobacco products within 250 feet of a youth sporting event. It was signed into law by Gov. Jerry Brown on Sept. 23. Pan said that the law “promotes a healthier environment and also sends a positive message about health around those (youth sport-

ing) events and what those events should be about.”

Minimum wage increase Through SB 3, the state’s mandatory minimum wage will become $15 per hour by 2022. This wage will be reached incrementally.

Gov. Jerry Brown announced that a deal had been reached regarding the increase on March 28, 2016. On Jan. 1, California’s minimum wage was increased from $10 per hour to $10.50 per hour for employers with 26 or more employees. And employers

with fewer workers have an additional year to comply with this increase. The next increase will occur this July when the rate increases to $12 per hour for companies with 26 employers or more. See Laws, page 7

The 2017/2018 Annual Action Plan will cover the second year of the City’s 2016-2020 Consolidated Plan. The 2016-2020 Consolidated Plan goals are: 1) reduce the incidence and impact of homelessness; 2) achieve goals in the Washington Sustainable Community Strategy; 3) strengthen economic opportunities for lower-income households; and 4) affirmatively further fair housing compliance. Interested persons are invited to attend. The hearing will be held at the City of West Sacramento Civic Center, second floor, 1110 West Capitol Ave., West Sacramento, California 95691.

Laws:

Continued from page 1 Cell phones usage for drivers With the passage of Assembly Bill (AB) 1785, a new distracted driving law pertaining to the hands-free operation of cell phones while driving now exists. Talking on a cell phone or texting while driving were already prohibited in this state. And on Jan. 1, the new law made it illegal for California drivers to use their cell phones for other purposes, with the exception of drivers using hands-free devices. According to the California Office of Traffic Safety, 80 percent of car crashes involve “driver inattention,” and “up to 3,000 people nationwide are killed in crashes where driver distractions are involved.” Decriminalization of prostitution charges for minors Through the passage of Senate Bill 1322, it is now a law that anyone 17 years old and younger who would have otherwise been charged with criminal prostitution as sex trafficking victims be instead eligible for treatment, as opposed to prosecution. Sen. Holly J. Mitchell (D-Los Angeles), who introduced the bill, said that the new law protects children. “The law is supposed to protect vulnerable children from adult abuse, yet we brand kids enmeshed in sex-for-pay with a scarlet ‘P’ and leave them subject to shame and prosecution,” she said. “This is our opportunity to do what we say is right in cases of sex trafficking: stop the exploiters and help the exploited.” Juvenile history A new law established through AB 1843 prohibits employers from seeking or considering a juvenile’s arrest or criminal convictions as part of the hiring process for an applicant. However, the law also notes: “Existing law specifies that these provisions do not prohibit an employer at a health facility, as defined, from asking an applicant for a specific type of employment about arrests for certain crimes.” Under that portion of the law, such an employer must provide the applicant with a list of offenses pertaining to the disclosure that is being sought. Good Samaritan pet rescue AB 797 – a pet rescue bill authored by Assembly members  Miguel Santiago (D-Los Angeles) and Marc Steinorth (R-Rancho Cucamonga) – was signed by Gov. Brown last September and became a law on Jan. 1. The law protects citizens from liability in their reasonable attempts to rescue an animal from the inside of a very hot or cold car. Those attempting to rescue an animal should first check for unlocked doors and other simpler possibilities for entrance, and not use more force than necessary to enter the car.

Sacramento Man Sentenced to 35 Years in Prison for Assault with a Deadly Weapon, Hit-and-Run of Cyclists Yolo County District Attorney Jeff Reisig announced Friday that the Honorable David Rosenberg sentenced Alamar Cyril Houston, 38, of Sacramento to 35 years in state prison, the maximum sentenced permissible under the law. Friday’s sentence follows a jury verdict convicting Houston of multiple felonies including assault with a deadly weapon,

hit-and-run causing injury, vehicle theft, and reckless evasion from law enforcement. On June 30, 2015, Houston stole a truck in Glenn County and recklessly drove it down I-5 through Yolo County nearly hitting several motorists who were on their way to work. After crossing the Sacramento River into Sacramento County, Houston crashed the stolen truck

near the Sacramento International Airport. After crashing, he hopped over the center median, ran across I-5, and stole a Hyundai SUV from a rental company at the airport. He drove into Downtown Sacramento with the stolen SUV where he intentionally hit a motorcyclist twice, ejecting and slightly injuring the rider. Houston fled the scene, but tried to hit another motorcyclist

a few blocks away with the SUV. Houston then drove over the Freeport Bridge into Clarksburg where a group of cyclists were participating in the “Tuesday River Ride;” an organized bike ride for avid cyclists. On South River Road, Houston pulled up next to cyclist Don Dumaine and intentionally hit Dumaine from the side, knocking him to the ground and injuring him. Houston again did not stop his SUV, but rather continued driving down South River Road for about a quarter mile when he encountered teenage cyclists Jonathan Jackson and Taariq Jensen. Houston, driving 20-30 mph faster than the teens were riding, intentionally ran them over with the SUV and sped away from the injured riders. Jackson was thrown off the hood of the SUV and Jensen struck the windshield. Jackson suffered injuries to his ankle while Jensen suffered more critical injuries that required him to be airlifted to Kaiser Hospital. There, Jensen was placed in a medically induced coma for several weeks and had to have a portion of his skull removed to treat his serious head injury. Houston’s crime spree continued after running over the teens as he drove from South River Road into West Sacramento. Houston went to the Walgreens on West Capitol Boulevard and Jefferson Boulevard where he punched a store clerk in

the face and stole a case of water. Immediately after leaving the Walgreens, West Sacramento Police Officer Dan Gill spotted Houston in the stolen SUV and attempted to pull the SUV over. Houston, however, refused to pull over and led Officer Gill on a dangerous pursuit which included speeds exceeding 70 mph on surface streets, the running of red lights where other drivers were almost hit, and driving into oncoming traffic. Houston eventually abandoned the SUV in a Downtown Sacramento ally where he ran from Officer Gill and assaulted Officer Gill’s K-9, Diesel, before being taken into custody. During the sentencing hearing, Jensen and Dumaine gave victim impact statements describing the attack that left them both injured, Jensen critically. To this day, Jensen still suffers from the injuries inflicted upon him by Houston. Jensen’s father provided a written statement that was read to the Court. Prosecutors asked for the maximum sentence

of 35 years based on the callousness and depravity of the crime as well as Houston’s lengthy criminal record, which included multiple felony convictions and four stints in prison. In sentencing Houston to the maximum amount of time in prison, Judge Rosenberg called Houston “a menace to society.” Reisig, stated, “(Friday’s) sentence is a clear denouncement of violence and removes from society a career criminal who broke the law with no regard for its consequences or the people who may suffer as a result. The defendant forever altered the lives of the victims and their families in this case. Now, they can begin to rebuild knowing that he will not be able to hurt them or anyone else. Our community is much safer today.” This case was investigated by the California Highway Patrol, Yolo County Sheriff’s Office, West Sacramento Police Department, Sacramento Sheriff’s Office and Sacramento Police Department.
