Garden Grove: Pay raise for city council

When it meets at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, the city council will consider pay raises for councilmembers and the mayor.

Under the proposed ordinances, council members would receive $1,312.34 per month, up from the current pay of $486.05. The mayor would receive an additional $200 per month. The expected effective date is Jan. 1, 2023.

The council will also consider second reading and adoption of an ordinance allowing for lot splits in single-family residential zones in accordance with Senate Bill, 9.

Stanton: Redistricting, new townhomes

A public hearing will be held at Tuesday’s meeting of the council on the proposed revisions in the city council districts. Public input will be received toward a final completion of process by April 17, 2022.

Also on the agenda is the second reading and adoption of an ordinance for an agreement between the city and Bonanni Development for the construction of a 79-unit townhome project at 12200 Beach Blvd. (southeast of Chapman Avenue).

The meeting is at 6:30 p.m.

Westminster: Censure resolution, time limits

The adoption of a formal resolution of censure of Mayor Tri Ta tops the agenda for Wednesday’s 7 p.m. meeting. The council voted 3-2 at its Jan. 12 meeting to reprimand Ta for “unacceptable conduct” and approval of a resolution would complete the process.

Also, the council will consider the concept of imposing time limits on councilmember during the discussion of agenda items, and “provide direction” on drafting such a policy. Recent meetings have gone on for as long as seven hours, beginning in the afternoon of Wednesdays and not concluding until well after midnight.
