Hosler said pedicabs were prohibited in the past in Monterey, but that gets kind of dicey. Elizabeth Caraker, the housing and community development manager, said pedicabs have always been allowed by California Vehicle Code.
• Operators must pay a $194.12 fee that is calculated on the time a Monterey Police Department services assistant to process the permit.
• No one younger than 21 may operate a pedicab.
• Operators must possess liability insurance.
• Passenger fares must be posted in the pedicab vehicle.
• Pedicabs must park in the same parking spaces as cars.
• Permits can be revoked if the operator is convicted of a violent crime.
• Permits can be revoked if the operator is convicted of any misdemeanor or felony driving under the influence charge.
• Permits can be revoked if the operator is convicted of any sex crime that requires them to register as sex offender.
The Pine Avenue work has been discussed at P.G. traffic commission and city council meetings for more than five years.
But the four-way stop will be something that drivers will have to get used to.
“We are going to have to make sure that the public now knows there is a four-way stop at Congress,” Gho said.
Good luck with that. People don’t stop on Congress where stop signs have been for decades.
Not everyone’s pleased, though. The rainbow flags — which the city is flying in place of the city flag at the police station — have annoyed some citizens, including Larry Esquivel, who sent a letter to the city council this week.
“I have nothing against the flying of the LGBTQ flag,” Esquivel said, “but it should not be on the same pole as the United States flag. It can be on a separate pole or on the wall of the building.” Esquivel, a retired reserve Pacific Grove Fire captain and police officer and Vietnam veteran, said the stars and stripes “means a lot” to him and others, including military veterans.
The word “united,” he said, “means all of us; race, sex, religion and so on.” Esquivel also cautioned displaying the pride flag “just to make a statement.” Doing so, he said, could open the door for “NRA, KKK, religious, Confederate” and other flags to be flown at city hall
The more ‘consignment shops’ you have, the bigger chance of being defrauded.
Michael Schellhous, who was convicted last year of stealing money from elderly clients through his Pacific Grove consignment shop and subsequently sentenced to four years’ felony probation and six months in Monterey County Jail was arrested by Pacific Grove police again this week for violating his probation.
Schellhous, 51, remained in county jail Wednesday after being picked up by police June 18 for being with another probationer.
Last August, Schellhous pleaded guilty to felony grand theft by embezzlement, felony grand theft from an elderly person, and misdemeanor petty theft from an elderly person for stealing $37,000 from at least five victims through his P.G. consignment shop, Vintique Boutique.
The collision occurred at 10:15 a.m. on the 16th Fairway of the Pebble Beach Golf Links when a vendor was making deliveries on a cart loaded with boxes while the course was packed with tens of thousands of spectators.
“The vendor parked and walked away from the golf cart,” Madueño said, at which point a box on the front seat tumbled onto the floor, landing on the accelerator.
Unoccupied and out of control, the cart traveled straight for a stretch and then turned, striking several people.
A mountain lion made an appearance in Pacific Grove over the weekend. When officers responded to a call of a sighting, the beast made a break for it and was last seen running up the street in the Del Monte Park neighborhood, bordered by Buena Vista and Benito avenues, in P.G.
On Sunday afternoon, P.G. police were notified of a mountain lion sighted in the backyard of a residence. Officers responded and were shown a picture that was taken of the lion by the reporting party. According to the P.G. police, while officers were checking the surrounding property, the reporting party saw the lion run up the street.
He got them installed, got businesses to sponsor them too.
After conducting a series of interviews with various maritime officials, and hearing them preach about the need for flotation devices, a Monterey eighth-grader began noticing that neither of the two Monterey wharves had the very safety equipment he was told was critical.
Or celebrate birthdays, mothers day or Halloween, Christmas and Easter. But they do believe in lawyers and lawsuits
A group of Jehovah’s Witnesses that rented property in
Pacific Grove for nearly 50 years is suing its landlords, alleging they broke the terms of a longstanding agreement by not allowing it to purchase the property.
The congregation contends that in March, the owners in-
formed them they had decided to sell the property for $1 million cash.
While the Jehovah’s Witnesses said they would purchase it,
the owners sold it to Hayward Lumber instead.
