Mike Tracy & Nancy Brochart Discuss Proposed Water Rate Increases For Ventura


Nancy Broschart, Ventura Water

Mike Tracy, Ventura Mayor

Mike Tracy was first elected to the Ventura City Council in November 2009.  He was appointed to the role of Deputy Mayor by his colleagues in December 2009, and will serve as Deputy Mayor for the first two years of his four-year term.

Mike is a product of Ventura.

Mike and his wife Linda, a retired teacher of the Ventura Unified School District, met as students at Ventura High School, and have been married 40+ years.

Mike was Police Chief from 1999 to 2005—capping off a 30-year career with the City.

Note: In my discussion with Mike Tracy and Nancy Broschart, we discuss the $1 million funding for WAV from Ventura Water.

To clarify that issue, Ventura established an ordinance allocating 2% of eligible City capital improvement project costs for the commissioning of artist design services and artwork integrated in the construction of public works. Policy oversight of the program is the responsibility of the Public Art Commission, a seven person volunteer advisory body.

The $1 million for WAV came from this 2% allocation.
