UPDATE: The Huntington Beach City Council, at a special meeting Monday night, was not able to agree on the filling of a council vacancy, and so instead will consider the matter at another special meeting within seven days.


The swearing in of a new member of the city council will top Tuesday’s meeting of the Huntington Beach City Council.

On Monday (tonight), the council will hold a special meeting to select a person to fill the vacancy created by the resignation of Tito Ortiz. On Tuesday the ceremony will be held immediately after the council is called to order at 5 p.m.

City Clerk Robin Estanislau will administer the oath of office. Public comments pertaining to closed session items will follow, and then the council will recess to closed session, where a conference with legal counsel will consider items of existing or anticipated legislation.

The regular meeting is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. On the agenda is a report from the city manager on crime statistics in the city and adoption of a resolution for the Middle Income Housing Program and authorizing the city manager to enter into associated public benefit agreements.

Tuesday’s meeting will be held in the council chambers at 2000 Main St. (at Yorktown Avenue), and will be available virtually via Zoom webinar. Persons wishing to attend in person “are encouraged to wear a face covering unless fully vaccinated.”
