EUREKA- Some changes are coming to the City of Eureka.  While crafting the 2013/2014 budget, council members decided they could improve efficiency by combining two commissions.

The Eureka City Council has adopted an ordinance that will combine the Parking Place Commission and the Transportation Safety Commission.  These are the first two agencies to merge under the new initiative. City officials say the two commissions had similar responsibilities and the same work could be done housed under one group.  The ordinance goes into effect on April 17th.  City officials will examine other commissions for other possible mergers.
