Here’s just a snapshot of just some of the stories that made news this week:

  • In spite of tough economic times, the City of Pasadena’s Water system and water system’s credit recently received an A++ rating from Fitch Ratings. The rating of the water system notes a “stable outlook” for the water system and found that the city’s increase in rates last year strengthened cash reserves and encouraged conservation.
  • Workers from the US Census are still roving the streets of Pasadena and the San Gabriel Valley looking for residents who have not yet completed their 2010 Census forms. The official deadline for the forms was on April 29th and Census takers will continue to go door-to-door collecting results manually from those who have not mailed in their form until the end of June.
  • The City of Pasadena’s Information Technology department reports that a new technology for consolidating advanced computer infrastructure into smaller pieces known as virtualization could save the city up to, if not more than $700,000 in the next three years. The initial phase of the project in December was successfully able to combine 108 psychical computers into only eight.
