City of Lancaster Weekly Road Closures through August 25, 2019
In an effort to improve our neighborhoods and city streets, the City of Lancaster conducts a variety of road construction projects which will ultimately benefit our citizens. While these construction zones typically restrict traffic flow for an interim period, the results provide smoother roads and better infrastructure in various locations throughout Lancaster. Additionally, a number of community events take place year-round throughout the City, resulting in temporary traffic detours during event setup, activity, and breakdown. The City of Lancaster strives to provide as many opportunities as possible for community gathering and engagement.

The BLVD Market is an opportunity for the community to gather and enjoy an offering of fresh produce and unique items in an open market atmosphere. The Market’s spring and summer hours are 4 – 9 p.m., every Thursday on Lancaster Blvd., between Ehrlich Avenue and Fern Avenue. This area will be closed to traffic and parking from 1 – 11 p.m. on Market days.

The City of Lancaster and Local Car Clubs Come Together for a Common Cause
The Children’s Center of the Antelope Valley was recently the recipient of a generous donation from a collaboration of local car clubs, a connection which the City of Lancaster was instrumental in forming.

At the City’s 2019 California Poppy Festival™, in the spirit of the festival’s “Always Something New” approach, the City of Lancaster collaborated with local car clubs to introduce a new attraction: the inaugural Modern Muscle versus Import Car Show. This car show was the first time import and modern muscle car clubs partnered with the City of Lancaster for an event.

The local car clubs that participated in the creation of this attraction were Team Blessed, Ruthless Squad, West Coast Elites, and Above Sport. With assistance from local decal shop Fresh Upgrade, which created a custom vinyl decal for participating cars, the clubs “revved up” awareness throughout the car community. The City also invited the public to join in, generating additional interest in the clubs’ passion for automobiles.

Wilk measure urging Congress to fix a retirement policy impacting teachers passes both houses of Legislature
SACRAMENTO - Senator Scott Wilk, representing the 21st Senate District, announces that Senate Joint Resolution 3 (SJR 3) has cleared both houses of the Legislature. SJR 3 urges the federal government to repeal two federal retirement benefit laws that can reduce Social Security for teachers along with some other groups of public employees and their spouses.

"There's no other way to say it: this federal policy is completely unfair to its most valuable public servants, especially educators," said Wilk. "School is starting back up right now, and it's the perfect time to send Congress the message that teachers and their families should not be treated unjustly. They are entitled to every cent they have paid into social security."

The Government Pension Offset (GPO) and Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP), passed in the 1970s with little statistical analysis, were designed to prevent "double-dipping" from social security and other government pensions. The GPO cuts benefits when an individual receives a government pension, and their spouse is eligible for social security from non-government employment. Similarly, the WEP cuts an individual's benefits when they are eligible for social security and government pensions from separate employers.
