WELCOME . . . By your presence in the City Council Chambers, you are participating in the process of representative government. To encourage that participation, the City Council has specified a time for citizen comments at two places on its agenda -- once following the Consent Calendar, at which time citizens may address the Council concerning any brief item not on the agenda and not-to-exceed one minute in duration for any speaker; and again following Items Removed from the Consent Calendar, at which time citizens may address the Council on any matter of City business not on the agenda with each speaker limited to three minutes, unless the time limit is extended by the Mayor with the consent of the Council.
Copies of staff reports or other written documentation relating to each item of business referred to on this agenda are available for review on the world wide web at www.citymb.info, at the County Library located at 1320 Highland Avenue, the Police Department Temporary Facility located at 1501 N. Peck Avenue, and are also on file in the Office of the City Clerk for public inspection. Any person who has any question concerning any agenda item may call the City Clerk's office (802-5056) to make an inquiry concerning the nature of the item described on the agenda.
In compliance with the Americans With Disabilities Act, if you need special assistance to participate in this meeting, you should contact the Office of the City Clerk at (310) 802-5056 (voice) or (310) 546-3501 (TDD). Notification 36 hours prior to the meeting will enable the City to make reasonable arrangements to assure accessibility to this meeting.
Your City government welcomes your interest and hopes you will attend the Manhattan Beach City Council meetings often.
