City of Lancaster Weekly Road Closures through July 21, 2019

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.

Wilk's sunshine in government measure one-step closer to becoming law
Sacramento - Scott Wilk, representing the 21st Senate District, announces Senate Bill 53 (SB 53), a bill that ensures transparency in government at all levels, unanimously passed the Assembly Committee on Governmental Organization.

"Transparent government is good government. SB 53 ensures that the state is held to the same transparency standards it demands of local government," said Wilk. "The current system has created wiggle room for smaller agencies and commissions to operate behind closed doors - which is contrary to the spirit of our transparency laws. SB 53 will close that loophole."

Current statute is ambiguous regarding the definition of "state body," allowing certain smaller committees and commissions to use this to their advantage and meet behind closed doors. Senate Bill 53 defines "state body" as a standing committee of any membership size - clarifying that they would all have to comply with the state's open meeting rules.
