Exit Stage Right – Chamber Of Commerce Prez Suddenly Quits

Heard that she left her key on the desk and departed. Later quits via an email and heads for Maine.Jenny MacMurdo Lobster call

Jenny MacMurdo, 44, who took over the chamber in January 2022, decided to resign this week.

MacMurdo’s departure comes at an unfortunate time, considering the city’s biggest event of the year, the Good Old Days Street fair on May 4-5, is only two weeks away.
However, the chamber said that Metzner who has been the lead director for Good Old Days is well suited to fill in until a permanent president is selected.

Oh. Wild Fish Has No Business License In Addition To Unpaid Taxes

Liz Jacobs, owner of Wild Fish on Lighthouse Avenue, leads the city-sanctioned  downtown Business Improvement District board, or BID, which holds marketing events to draw more people to P.G. But Jacobs, the chair of the board, has not remitted business license tax for the restaurant at 545 Lighthouse for two fiscal years — even though the group she heads pays for its programs with the same tax dollars.

OK, delinquent taxes, no business license. How are they on health department inspections or payroll deductions? Place is starting to resemble a grease fire of infractions.

Long Wait In Lighthouse Avenue Traffic

Thank the voters of Monterey for their 82% vote for Measure S. And some slightly stupid planners.

Measure S

On Tuesday, some drivers reported being stuck in Lighthouse traffic for more than an hour. The roadwork created Monterey’s version of L.A. rush hour traffic.

The traffic was so bad neighborhood streets were jammed with cars as drivers took alternate routes, streets were blocked off and parking spots off limits- businesses feeling the pinch.

“Definite business impact. I was here all day yesterday, and I didn’t see anybody until after seven o’clock, and that’s so different for us,” added Clewis (Employee of Ooh La La).

The work is all part of Measure S, a long-term taxpayer-funded project to repair Monterey’s streets, sidewalks and storm drains.
