Fireworks, RV parking on council agenda

A REPORT ON public safety issues related to July 4 will be presented to the city council on Tuesday

A report on July 4th activities as well as a proposed ban on street parking of recreational vehicles without a permit will top Tuesday’s meeting of the Garden Grove City Council.

Police and fire officials will make a presentation on fireworks and other issues over the Independence Day week. Extra staffing for public safety agencies was put on and special measures, such as turning on sprinklers in parks were implemented.

The council will also address the introduction of an ordinance that would ban the parking of RVs on any public or private street in Garden Grove without a valid permit

Under the proposed new regulation – recommended by the city’s traffic commission – residents would be able to apply for up to 12 non-consecutive 72-hour RV parking permits for the sole purpose of loading or unloading before or after travel.

Weekly parking permits will also be available, but no more than six such permits will be allowed in any calendar year. Hookups will be permitted.

Also on the agenda is recognition of Master Officer Brian Hatfield with the presentation of a Medal of Merit, and a report on a Civic Center area parking update reflecting the planned construction of the Steelcraft urban eatery project on Euclid Street north of Garden Grove Boulevard.

The council will meet in its chambers in the Community Meeting Center, 11300 Stanford Ave. at 6:30 p.m.
