Community Voices: Time to Audit CUSD Finances



Time for an audit of Coronado school financing, because CUSD is anything but transparent with the public. If we don’t ask the right questions, or research the right websites, CUSD only tells taxpayers what they want us to know. 

Do you know you’ve been paying Prop KK parcel taxes since 2000, and will continue paying every year until 2026? (Look at your prop tax statement.) And in addition to that $17M, CUSD borrowed about $100M more…

Off-Leash Hours at Vetter Park Proposed



Over the last month, dog-owners have stopped going to Vetter Park ever since some nearby neighbors raised concerns to law enforcement officials to uphold the leash law that exists at the park.  Up until this time, Vetter Park neighbors offered a 'blind eye' to those dogs that were left off-leash.  For various reasons, allowing dog-owners this civil disobedience was no longer tolerated and hence Vetter Park has since been unfrequented.
