The South Pasadena City Council meets tonight, with the open session part of the meeting starting at 7 p.m. at City Hall at 1424 Mission Street.
Below are some of the items up for discussion. The full agenda can be viewed here.
- Amending a tree trimming ordinance to increase penalties for violations. If approved, the change would allow the city to impose a "tree replacement fee" for up to double the value of the damaged or destroyed tree. If the tree trimming violation happens on a property being developed, the change would allow the city to ban issuing new permits for up to five years
- Discussion of extending the city's lease with the company that operates the Arroyo Seco Golf Course from four years to six years
- A decision on whether to approve an 18 percent water hike and start the state-mandated public hearing process, with hearing to be scheduled in December.
- A review of existing city properties and lease agreements to ensure that "the City is receiving the service/and or payment it deserves and that a good product is being delivered."
