Cleaning up will be focus of two items on the agenda for Monday’s meeting of the Huntington Beach City Council. The council meets at 6 p.m. in its chambers in the Civic Center at 2000 Main St. (at Yorktown Avenue).

The council will be asked to approved a license and operating agreement with Spas for Paws, LLC for a new self-service dog washing facility at the Central Park for a term of five years.

To be located near to the existing dog area at the southwest corner of the park, the facility would be about 100 square feet in area and be 11 inches high. It will be similar to a self-serve car wash, using a cashless vending machine.

Central Park is located on Goldenwest Street at Talbert Avenue.

Also on Monday, the council will receive a report on maintenance and public improvements in the downtown area under a program – in cooperation with the Huntington Beach Downtown Business Improvement District and the tourist bureau Visit HB – called “Shaping Up Surf City USA.” The purpose is to identify and improve areas of concern in the city’s historic core north of the municipal pier.

Already done are the planter brick replacement, skate stops, pressure washing of all poles, the removal of stickers and graffiti from poles and removing weeds from under and between pavers.

Monday’s meeting will be the last for the council of 2017. The first meeting of the new year is scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 16.
