The City Council will take a break from their summer break and hold a meeting Monday night.

By Peggy KellySanta Paula TimesThe City Council will take a break from their summer break and hold a meeting Monday night. The July 28 meeting will start at 5:30 p.m. in the Administration Conference Room with interviews for an open seat on the Commission on Aging, for which Barry Cooper is the only applicant. Council members will also interview Susan Kulwiec for the Design Assistance Committee.The Council will move into closed session to discuss two matters involving possible litigation. At 6:30 p.m. the Council will meet in Council Chambers for the open session, which will be televised live by Time Warner Cable Channel 10 and then repeated according to schedule.Presentations include the Oath of Office to new Santa Paula Police Officers, a presentation regarding last weekend’s 41st Annual Kiwanis Citrus Festival, and recognitions and proclamations, including to Howard Bolton for his gratis work on the city’s entry in a Ventura County Fair contest. Board Director Ginger Gherardi will present this year’s Ventura County Fair poster to the Council.
After an update on the city’s new water recycling facility, and after a slew of Consent Calendar items - those matters of business that are not expected to warrant discussion, but can be pulled by Council members or staff for review, the Council will address other business.A public hearing will be held on the Geological Hazard Abatement District, which, if a protest vote does not materialize, will levy assessments within the district, specifically the new Ridgeview at Vista Glen Development above Santa Paula Hospital. The Council will also discuss a citizen requested moratorium on the construction of low-income and multi-family housing.Modification to the Vista Glen signage, an update on the Harvey Diversion and Santa Paula Creek projects, and designation of a voting delegate for the 2008 League of California Cities annual conference will round out Council business. City Hall is located at 970 E. Ventura Street.
