An Exciting Week Ahead

BUSY WEEK AHEAD
The week beginning Monday, April 18, 2011 is going to be a very interesting week in the City of Costa Mesa.






FEET TO THE FIRE FORUM

First, on Monday, the 18th, we have the Feet To The Fire Forum, hosted by the irrepre
ssible Barbara Venezia at the Neighborhood Community Center, 1845 Park Avenue (at Lions Park) which begins at 7:00 and is scheduled to run until 9:00. The topic of the evening is: "Should the City of Costa Mesa be run more like a business?"

THE PREDATORS AND THE PREY
Venezia will lead a team of inquisitors consisting of Orange County Register columnist Frank Mickadeit, Daily Pilot Managing Editor John Canalis, Newport Beach Independent Editor Roger Bloom and Voice of OC Managing Editor Norberto Santana, Jr. Panelists scheduled to be grilled are Costa Mesa Mayor Pro Tem Jim Righeimer and Planning Commission Chairman and President of the Costa Mesa Taxpayer's Association Colin McCarthy on one side facing off against Councilwoman Wendy Leece and General Manager of the Orange County Employee's Association Nick Berardino on the other. According to Venezia, it is not anticipated that questions will be taken from the public. I suspect that seating will be at a premium that night.

CITY COUNCIL MEETING

Tuesday, April 19th, there will be a regularly-scheduled Costa Mesa City Council Meeting in the Council Chambers at City Hall beginning at the normal time - 6:30 p.m. Looking at the current agenda one might assume this will be a fairly short meeting. However, the last meeting had a similarly short agenda and nearly 3 hours of public comments stretched it much longer than anticipated. I see no reason to assume the public will be absent from this meeting - quite the contrary. There have been many events since the last meeting that will almost certainly guarantee many speakers Tuesday night.

COSTA MESA HOMELESS TASK FORCE MEETING

Wednesday, April 20th, will be the meeting of the Costa Mesa Homeless Task Force at the Neighborhood Community Center beginning at 5:30 in the Adams Room. Public comments will be permitted. Chair Steve Smith and Facilitator Larry Haynes will lead the discussion. Among the issues to be discussed are: Brown Act; Community Outreach and Legal/Enforcement; 3-year Law Enforcement overview at Lions Park; Physical and Mental Health Homeless Perspective; Faith based perspective; homeless census

This would be a great week for Beaver and Monahan to wake up and take costa mesa back with Leece. They worked hard without the knowelege of the big crash, to make it a great place. If they worked together without outside interference a solution could be found from inside. Not from some carpet bagger and his wanabees. Please take it back, these tactics will not serve Costa Mesa.Take the Able money,take the redevelopment funds and buy some time to reorginize

Inmates: It's old news. Get over it. You sound like one of those Newport Beach people who are still hoping for an airport in El Toro.
