While many residents are losing their jobs due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Redwood City's city manager and city attorney may get a 6 percent pay raise. That's not sitting right with some in the community. At its meeting Tuesday, the City Council agenda includes a proposal to increase City Manager Melissa Stevenson Diaz's annual salary to $316,104, and to increase City Attorney Veronica Ramirez's salary to $266,928. The hikes are part of an annual review of compensation that adjusts for cost of living and rewards performance. Last year, Diaz received a 5.86 percent raise and Ramirez received a one time bonus of 5 percent, both of which also drew criticism as they were awarded only months after the city pushed for, and passed, a half-cent sales tax to plug projected city budget deficits. With the COVID-19 pandemic forcing businesses to close and lay off workers, community members are again questioning the timing of the pay hikes.

Teens ages 15 to 18 can work out for free all summer at Planet Fitness from May 15 through Sept. 1.

The offer is open to teens at any of more than 1,700 Planet Fitness locations, including those in Richmond and Pinole. The teens can work out “for free all summer long as much as they want,” the company says.

Teens must work out at only the location where they sign up. To sign up, stop by a Planet Fitness (online signups are not available). If you are under 18, you’ll need to be accompanied by a parent/guardian. Once a parent/guardian signs a waiver, teens can work out alone.

During the summer, teens can take free fitness classes.

Teens who enter the program will be entered into Planet Fitness’ Scholarship Sweepstakes in which 51 lucky teens across 50 states and Washington D.C. will be randomly selected to receive a college scholarship or $5,000 grand prize.
