• Major City Council Actions 11/5/14

    Major actions taken by the Council at its regular meeting on November 5, 2014 include:

     Approved an agreement with Monterey Peninsula Engineering for the scheduled repair, replacement, and upgrade of sanitary sewer lines and manholes throughout the City. Completion of this project and two other projects currently being designed will complete all of the projects scheduled by the 2004 sewer master plan.

     Reappointed the Golf Links Advisory Commissioners and appointed Kevin Donohoe to the Economic Development Commission.

     Amended the use permit for the Pt. Pinos Grill (at the Golf Links Clubhouse) to allow the service of alcohol beverages consistent with an approved state Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) Commission permit.

     Updated Council policy to provide needed interpretations to fully implement Measure C, adopted in 1986, and Measure U, adopted in 2012, which control the growth and density of the 18 motels and hotels in Pacific Grove adjacent to single family residential neighborhoods.

     Updated the City’s emergency response ordinance to reflect the latest in emergency management standards.

     Requested a staff analysis of current responsibilities and capabilities to protect and rescue persons in danger off Pacific Grove shores, as a result of high surf, rip tides, and rock outcroppings.

     Approved a proposal by the Museum of Natural History to tag up approximately 2,000 Monarch butterflies (in order to track movement among the sanctuaries on the Central Coast) and to determine the incidence of a parasite, Ophryocystis elektroscirrha.

     Received the annual audit for fiscal year 2013-4 from the City’s independent, outside auditors. In short, the City received an “unqualified opinion,” (i.e., a clean audit), added $1.7 million to its unrestricted General Fund reserves, and received guidance on a number of internal controls that need to be implemented or strengthened.
