On The City Council Agenda – September 17, 2013

Hidden Agenda ClipartIt should be a  pretty short meeting for the Tustin City Council this Tuesday with only one item on the Regular Business Calendar and five items on the consent calendar.

The meeting begins with the Closed Session at 5:30pm. The usual suspects are listed with a conference with legal counsel on two items each for Initiation and Exposure to Litigation. There will also be discussion over three real estate items with the Real Property (aka Jeff Parker) Negotiators.

Prior to Regular Business, presentations will be made to Charles Tozzer, DDS, for his work at the Tustin Family Youth Center Dental Clinic. Congratulations, Doctor, and thanks for your efforts. The Family Youth Center serves some of the neediest in our town and we applaud their efforts.

Don Lamm of the Orange County Chapter of the American Planning Association will also be presenting an award. Although not listed, Tustin’s own Amy Stonich should also be on hand as she is the current Vice-Director of Programs for the organization.  Hmm. Wonder who the recipient could be?

A third presentation is indicated only as, “George Masson – National Center for Missing & Exploited Children.

The only item on the Consent Calender that would be of concern to us is Item 5 that would be the first steps in authorizing the sale of bonds for financing municipal water system

"Lowest bidder???"

“Lowest bidder???”

improvements. The city would like to issue $15 million dollars in bonds to pay for rehabilitation of the Simon Ranch Booster Pump Station and Pipeline Replacement, as well as the replacement of the Tustin Avenue Well. The item should be pulled for discussion only so the residents understand the project.

The final item on the agenda is a second reading and adoption of the subdivision code. It’s interesting that the city has not published the video from the September 3rd Tustin City Council meeting where this was first discussed. What is it they don’t want us to know? In any case, this item will probably interest the contractors and builders more than the average citizen.

That’s it for the week. I would suspect the presentations will take the longest part of the evening. If, in the meantime, they get the video up for the previous meeting, we’ll let you know of any surprises.
