Santa Clarita and Los Angeles County received the Compass Blueprint award from the Southern California Association of Governments for their joint city-county "One Valley, One Vision" plan. The award will be presented to the city council on June 25.
Santa Clarita's unemployment rate fell 0.4 percent, from 6.1 to 5.7 percent, between March and April, according to the state Employment Development Department. City Manager Ken Striplin believes it is due to a more active local economy.
The Santa Clarita Worksource Center will host a free recruitment event for Staffmark on Friday, May 31 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the College of the Canyons University Center. Job seekers should come dressed professionally and prepared with resumes and ID.
