The swearing-in and seating of council members highlights Tuesday’s meeting of the Stanton City Council.

Incumbent Mayor David Shawver will be sworn in as the city’s chief elected officer, and Gary Taylor will take the oath of office as councilmember representing District 3.

New to the council will be Donald Torres, who will represent District 1.

Also on Tuesday the council will consider approving an ordinance that will result in lifting a moratorium on new “personal care” and medical office businesses in the city.

The moratorium was approved in June 2022 and since been extended. It was enacted because – according to a staff report – some establishments and other enterprises in which the customer might end up partially or fully undressed have been connected to illegal sexual activities and human trafficking.

The new ordinance, going for a second and final reading on Tuesday, is intended to eliminate such abuses in certain businesses, which could include a barber shop, beauty salon, nail salon, tanning salon, non-medical skin or facial skin care, eyelash extensions or eyebrow waxing, threading or tattooing, acupuncture or acupressure.

The council will meet at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall, 7800 Katella Ave.
