Oxnard-- In his report to the city council, Tuesday, October 18, City Manager Alex Nguyen said the state originally had over $12 million for rent relief in Oxnard, but they've gone up to over $16 million.
"So far, we have 763 households that have been approved for assistance," he said. "There is progress being made. You can see how much money has been coming down the pike to tenants and landlords. The program is still active, and we encourage people in need to apply."
He said the vaccination sites continue, and the city still has the location in North Oxnard at 2240 East Gonzales Road, and vaccinations are available from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday.
"On Thursdays, they open at 8:30 a.m. through 6:30 p.m.," he said. "In South Oxnard at 2500 South C Street out there in the tent in the parking lot. That vaccination site continues from 8:30 a.m until 4:30 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, as well as from 8:30 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. on Wednesdays. They are also open from 9:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. on Saturdays."
He said Covid-19 testing continues at the Oxnard Performing Arts Center, from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
Nguyen said Ventura County Public Health Officer Dr. Mark Levin extended the mask order in all indoor public places and offered medical criteria for when the order will change.
"We have a special election for district two in the City of Oxnard, and the election date is Tuesday, November 2," he said. "Vote by mail ballots have already been shipped out. If you need any specific information, you can contact venturavotes.org or call their offices at 805-654-2664."
He said ballots can be dropped off at Ventura County Credit Union, 691 Towne Center Drive.
"That collection box is indoors and is open during the week from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m., Monday through Wednesday," he said. "They can be dropped on from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m., Thursday and Friday. and from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Saturdays."
He said there is also a box and the Oxnard Public Library, 251 South A Street, and it's available 24/7.
"At the county's government center, they have both a drive and walk-up, so you can drop off your ballot outdoors," he said. "That's at 800 South Victoria Avenue, and it's available 24/7."
Due to Election Day, Tuesday, November 2, there will not be a city council meeting.
The council also authorized a resolution extending remote meetings in the City of Oxnard.
"The new statute (AB361) requires that the council makes certain findings in order to keep conducting meetings remotely, without complying with other provisions of the open meetings law," City Attorney Stephen Fischer said. "What we've been doing during the entire Covid-19 pandemic, we have to make findings for it. This is the first reauthorization of that. In the future, in order to lessen the burden on the city clerk's office, we are going to put this reauthorization item on the consent agenda as a minute approval item rather than as a resolution."
