The Laguna Day Worker Center in Laguna Canyon finally now has electricity and heat, David Peck, chairman of the Crosscultural Council that operates the center, announced last week.
Lights in the early morning hours and heat will allow jobs coordinator Irma Ronses to work more comfortably and effectively matching workers with contractors and homeowners for day jobs.
The long-awaited project was made possible by Rick Wahler of Trivest Builders, Oscar Martinez of Maximum Electric, Laguna Beach city staff and funded in part by a grant from the Weingart Foundation, Peck said.
