Ok z28racergirl. If you bought a ounce of gold in 1999 at the going price of about $270 and the going price today is over $1,200 at what price do you sell to not be "greedy"?
The initial purchase price is only one factor in the costs associated with rental properties and the majority of them are not low or mortgage free properties. A apartment complexby by SBCC just sold for 33 million dollars and they are getting a facelift. Do you really think rents are going to drop?
Buying or renting the cost per sqft is high

On The High Price of Renting in Paradise

Maybe renters should consider the cost of housing when voting on property tax increases. The combination of this one coming up and the big increase in water costs is definitely going to be passed on to the renters. The foreign student market is starting to look pretty good.

The question is, would the supporters vote for it if it was coming out of their pocket for the next 25 years? No, that's why local sales tax increases fail. It's all good when someone else is paying. I'll have the lobster please.

The comment that sticks out is that 60% of the budget is spent on public safety. Maybe if there was some comprise on the departments side to address the unsustainable pension benefits, and if our elected representatives were not so indebted to them for their seat, they could have some balls and push for real reform and we could have both safety and infrastructure. Future pension cost is the biggest unfunded mandate and the elephant in the room that no one wants to talk about. Look at the authors of this piece and connect the dots. The only thing that is transparent is government electing government.

I've cooked with both, but prefer the nobillis which I have in the garden. It does well, but is not a fast grower. I have seen them for sale at the Saturday farmers market and also 7-day Nursery and imagine they are available elsewhere. Very nice to have fresh bay leaves no matter which type

The act ended up causing someone great harm. That being said, if you are rich kids from Westmont who traspass on private property, light a fire that causes mass destruction of propery severe burns and permanent injury to 2 people, the DA protects your indenity for as long as possible and then you get off without penalty.
It does seem excessive and out of line with other crimes that cause even greater harm and/or were premeditated or carried out over years.

The Santa Barbara Vew reports the costs of 1 million which seems low and the Indy 11 million which seems high. Mmm

Hopefully going forward the Indy will provide a equal forum for all candidates who file to run for local elections, and not repeat the travesty of selective inclusion of the last election.
