A pair of proposals by Councilman William O’Connell won approval by the Huntington Beach City Council Monday night on 7-0 votes.

The proposals are:

  • to create an ad hoc council committee to frame a performance review of the city’s permitting and entitlement process. In a memo, O’Connell suggested that business and property owners encountered delays in getting final permits on business expansion and home remodels.
  • to direct the city’s public works department to perform a pilot program to use only organic pesticides in Central Park West for a one-year test period. Updates will be provided to the city council at six months and one year with results and recommendations.

Another item for the creation of a Huntington Beach Community Foundation, submitted by Mayor Barbara Delgleize and Councilwoman Jill Hardy, was not acted upon.

The next council meeting is scheduled for May 15.
