The Simi Valley City Council has voted to extend the city's 45-day building moratorium through Nov. 28, according to City Atty. John Torrance. The moratorium, which took effect on Dec. 2, was designed to allow the city to prohibit the approval of any major commercial, industrial or residential projects until the city completes updating its general plan in March, Torrance said. The council approved the extension on Monday. The moratorium is the third adopted by the city since Oct. 21.

With a few grumbles and some audible sighs, the Simi Valley City Council approved a slight hike in water rates for the city's water district. About half the city's residents rely on water from Water District No. 8, which is run by the city. The other half receives service from a private water company. The city does not have its own water supply, instead buying water from a regional agency. The rate increase was requested to offset a boost in that agency's fees.
