This week we approved the licensing for a brand new restaurant in the 5th District, Stiks and Stohns. When it opens, Stiks and Stohns will be a great place for the community to get together to enjoy Modern American cuisine. I was able to get a sneak peek at the menu and it looks great. Stiks and Stohns will be located at 4111 North Viking Way. I look forward to welcoming more businesses to the 5th District and making the process as easy as possible so they can focus on being successful. The tax dollars from bringing more businesses to Long Beach will pay for the services we rely on: public safety, parks, libraries, streets, and sidewalks.
We also continued the 2015 Budget process, hearing presentations from more City Departments. I look forward to hearing your input at our upcoming Community Budget Meeting on August 25th.
