15 New Homes Coming to North Turlock

Fitzpatrick Homes will build 15 new homes in North Turlock, near Pitman High School, following Turlock Planning Commission approval Thursday evening. “I think they’re beautiful homes, and I think they’ll add to the community and the neighborhood,” said Turlock Planning Commission Chair Soraya Fregosi.
Brett Nichols, Pitman High School’s “King of Pop” will be presented with an official proclamation from the Turlock City Council on Tuesday. The proclamation will be read by Turlock Mayor John Lazar. It tells the story of how Nichols became interested in Michael Jackson’s work at an early age, first performed a Jackson dance routine at a Walnut Elementary School Talent Show, then took his show to the Pitman High School Talent Rally, which he won with his routine to “Billie Jean.”
The City of Turlock will consider adopting the first two-year budget in city history on Tuesday. The switch to two-year budget cycles is intended to create greater continuity and more clearly define budget priorities Though the economy is expected to improve, with tax revenues up $1.4 million to more than $31 million total, the City of Turlock is still projecting a budget deficit. The status quo, 2014-2015 General Fund budget calls for $915,619 in deficit spending, primarily driven by a need to replenish the city’s equipment replacement accounts with a one-time $2.5 million expenditure.
It’s official: two milk powder processing facilities will be the newest addition to the Turlock Regional Industrial Park. The milk powder processors are the two “large” food processing factories previously confirmed by Turlock Assistant to the City Manager for Housing and Economic Development Maryn Pitt in May, she said Tuesday.
The Turlock Irrigation District’s eight new apprentice lineworkers are now out on the job, working to ensure the region’s electrical system is in tip-top shape. Those eight apprentice lineworkers were the cream of the crop, selected from a pool of more than 400 applicants. But despite their qualifications, the apprentice lineworkers needed further training before they could go out in the field with TID crews.

Around Turlock - June 3

The Loch Ness Monster might have some company. The “Mystery in Donnelly Park Lake” could be roaming in Turlock’s favorite park. The creature is the focus of a short film, uploaded to YouTube in 2010 but only just discovered by TurlockCityNews.com. The comedic film is displayed like a mockumentary, with the story told in a series of interviews starring an eccentric monster hunter by the name of George Glass.
It was a good day to be an incumbent on Tuesday. In three heated Stanislaus County races, incumbents came out on top this Election Day. With 100 percent of Stanislaus County precincts reporting, District Attorney Birgit Fladager, Sheriff-Coroner Adam Christianson, and Assessor Don Gaekle all look to retain their seats by large margins in unofficial results released Tuesday evening.
