Should you stay or should you go might be the question at Monday’s City Council meeting where an oral report will be presented on the effectiveness of lighted crosswalks.
The council will have the regular meeting starting at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall Council Chambers; there is no closed session preceding the regular meeting.
Time Warner Cable will broadcast the meeting live on Channel 10 and replay the session per schedule. The city will also live stream the meeting online and archive the session for viewing on demand.
There will be two presentations with proclamations recognizing Mental Illness Awareness Week and Fire Prevention Week.
An item of interest on the Consent Calendar - those items considered routine and not requiring council discussion - is banning parking at the California Oil Museum parking lot from midnight to 5 a.m.
According to the staff report the proposed restriction for the lot, located at 1001 E. Main St., was prompted by ongoing parking abuses by residents and businesses in the area.
The council will announce their appointment for the one open seat on the Planning Commission from a field of candidates they interviewed at a previous meeting including incumbent Commissioner Marilyn Appleby, Timothy Hicks who serves on the Mobile Home Rent Review Commission, John Demers and Mark Bermudez. The term is for four years.
Interim Public Works Director Brian Yanez will present an oral report on the performance and effectiveness of the city’s various lighted crosswalks.
Santa Paula started installing lighted crosswalks at schools and at other locations in 2001 in a program largely funded by safety grants and city monies.
City Hall is located at 970 E. Ventura St. For more information call Deputy City Clerk Lucy Blanco at 933-4208.
