In order to go forward with plans for a multi-purpose building at French Camp School, Manteca Unified received the OK last Monday on an out-of-service agreement with the City of Stockton for drinking and fire protection water.
Manteca's unemployment picture – as well as that of every other community in San Joaquin County – bucked the statewide trend for the second straight month in September as more people went back to work.
Fifty-eight more homes – including 40 being touted as Manteca's first workforce housing neighborhood – are being presented to the City Council Tuesday for initial approval and annexation by declared Manteca mayoral candidate Ben Cantu.
Doctors Hospital of Manteca helped launch the "Healthy Over Hungry Cereal Drive" from May 29 to June 5 to lead a community effort to provide area children, struggling with hunger, healthy breakfasts during the summer months.
Manteca is trying to parlay a $28 per night surcharge on a $200 a night room into a $200 million plus private sector investment that has the potential of generating 560 new jobs, an annual payroll of $9.4 million, and provide at least $600,000 yearly to underwrite city services.
Weston Ranch residents will now have some relief when the grueling Central Valley pounds the area this summer by allowing a Stockton non-profit to operate swimming programs at Weston Ranch High School.
