05/29/2020: Monterey's Bold Past and Gold Future Celebrated Virtually with an Event Hosted by Four Mayors - NEWS RELEASE

Monterey turns 250 years old on June 3, 2020. The City of Monterey has planned for this “never again” occasion for at least the past three years. Celebrations for several unique, featured, and year-long events to take place throughout the year were suddenly halted by the COVID-19 pandemic. We decided to celebrate this important and historic event in the best way possible – virtually and gathering four living mayors spanning five generations. These dynamic leaders of our time will talk about the significance of our beautiful city to the establishment of California, the changes, challenges, and opportunities faced by each generation, the uniqueness of our international culture, the importance of our military as well as our fishing industry, and much more.

04/29/2020: City Manager Orders Partial Beach Closure and Restrictions to Essential Activity Only, to Reduce the Spread of COVID-19 - Effective Fri., May 1

City Manager Hans Uslar today announced a partial beach closure for Monterey beaches that will take effect on Friday, May 1, 2020. This temporary measure provides additional health and safety assurance during the COVID-19 pandemic emergency shelter in place order. As both the State Stay at Home and the Monterey County Shelter-in-Place orders require, social distancing of six feet between people remains a critical component to reduce the risk of spreading the coronavirus. The warmer weather and the desire for people to return to normal activities after weeks of sheltering in place threaten to dismantle the progress made in combating COVID-19, prompting the additional restrictions.

04/17/2020: City YouTube Channel Now Offers Live Stream Option to Watch and Comment at City Council Meetings

Since the COVID-19 Monterey County Shelter in Place order, the City of Monterey adapted Council meetings from in-person at the Council Chamber to one hundred percent virtual. In an effort to retain full transparency and public participation under these new conditions, the City has added a more robust option for watching and commenting during meetings. With our Access Media Productions (AMP) partner, who
tapes and produces City meetings for rebroadcast, we have connected our YouTube channel at youtube.com/cityofmonterey to broadcast meetings live. This YouTube streaming option significantly improves the timeliness of the broadcast signal. Parallel, the City has developed an easier call-in option, which will allow the public to comment as previously. Being able to see the meeting live, and without a 60 or 90 second delay, helps the audience to call in during the public comment portion of the meeting. NEWS RELEASE IN PDF
