Why it is Vital that YOU Complete the Census

There has been much discussion, and a fair amount of controversy, about the 2020 Census; however, putting all the politics to one side, there are some REALLY important reasons why everyone in Tahoe, especially YOU, should complete the census. Firstly is the issue of government funding.  Funding allocations for fire departments, hospitals, schools, roads, block grants for mental health services, the SNAP food program and over 100 other vital resources are based on census numbers.  Here in Tahoe, each person counted in the census equates to app. $2000 in government funding.  So if you don't fill out the census - that is $2000 LESS coming to our community EVERY year for a decade.

The New Year is ringing in changes at the Club

January 1st 2020 brought some major changes in California employment laws and regulations.  Now all management employees earning less than $55,000 a year are to be paid overtime (time and a half) for every minute over 8 hours that they work in a day.  Along with the increase in minimum wage, this is going to have a significant financial impact upon the Club.  We try to maximise staff time for when members are at the Club, and therefore our staff finish work when the Club closes - 6pm at Bijou and 6.30pm at main site.  When parents are late it greatly impacts the staff who have to stay to supervise the member and ensure that they are picked up safely.  And from January 1st, we will also have to pay that staff overtime.
