It could be getting easier to build a granny flat in Fountain Valley. The City Council agreed on a 4-1 vote Tuesday to the first reading of an ordinance that would update local rules for the secondary units. This comes in line with a new state law intended to make accessory units, an affordable-by-design housing type, easier to build.
The Fountain Valley Police Department is replacing its handguns. The department will trade in its 75 Sig Sauer P220 .45-caliber service pistols for Sig Sauer P320 9mm models as the .45-caliber guns reach the scheduled end of their seven-year service life. The department also will buy new holsters, magazine pouches, training magazines, handgrip modules and weapon-mounted lights. The upgrades will cost the city $24,560 after applying trade-in credit for the old guns.
Water and sewer bills could be going up in Fountain Valley. The City Council got the ball rolling Tuesday on a package of rate hikes that could make costs go up by $7.31 per billing cycle next year for the typical household. The council agreed to direct city staff to send notifications to customers about the potential rate increases and invite feedback. “This is even more encouragement to our ratepayers to conserve water,” Councilwoman Cheryl Brothers said.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
