Possible expansion of hours of operation of the city’s Central Library will be discussed in a study session of the Huntington Beach City Council on Tuesday.

That session will be held at 4 p.m. in the Council Chambers, 2000 Main St. The regular session will commence at 6 p.m.

It was open on Sundays before the Great Recession that began in 2008, but hours of operation were reduced as the city made budget cuts. With an improving economy and a better fiscal situation for the city, a return to Sunday operation is being considered.

Also on the study session agenda is a presentation by the Huntington Beach Police Department and the Office of Business Development on the city’s homeless outreach efforts.

In the regular session, the council will consider a request by Councilman Erik Peterson of the city’s Finance Commission to review the financial statements of the city’s Downtown Business Improvement District for at least the past three years, and “further if they deem necessary.” The request comes “in the light of some concerns,” according to a memo from Peterson.
