• Major actions taken by the Council at January 21, 2015 meeting

     Adopted resolutions required by the State for the City to qualify for a low interest loan and a grant to pay for the City’s local water project, which will use non-potable water to water the golf course and cemetery, starting in the summer of 2016.

     Held second reading and adopted an ordinance to authorize a pilot program allowing up to 7 cars City-wide to be permit for sleeping, to be approved only at designated and permitted locations in the City, supervised and provided with needed services.

     Held second reading and adopted an ordinance to authorize a pilot program allowing restaurants and other eating establishments throughout the City to initiate sidewalk dining. The Council also waived the fees for the first three months of the pilot program, in order to incentivize restaurants to try this new approach.

     Approved an amendment to joint powers authority agreement the City has with other jurisdictions for the conduct of disposal and recycling operations at the landfill operated by the Monterey Regional Waste Management Authority in Marina, so as to ensure that all solid waste and recyclables picked up by the City’s franchise hauler (now Waste Management, Inc. but transferring to GreenWaste Recovery in August) re taken to the Marina facility. (This “Flow control” is necessary to achieve the economies of scale necessary to achieve the state-mandated waste reduction standards, at the lowest possible cost).

     Adopted the special events calendar (https://cedarstreettimes.com/special-events-calendar-budget-goes-before-city-council/)  for the City for July 2015 through June 2016.

     Agreed to co-sponsor the Youth Entrepreneurial Awards, to be held this year at the Museum.

     Approved a lease with Lighthouse Fellowship of Pacific Grove for use of office space at the Community Center.

     Appointed a slate of Board and Commission members for the 2016 term. The City has positions for 74 different board and commission members. If you wish to serve, please contact the City Clerk.


    The agenda reports and supporting documents for all of these actions are on the City’s website, at http://www.cityofpacificgrove.org. Details of the actions taken will also be available, upon completion and adoption of the meeting minutes, which will also be posted on the website.
