Special Meeting Canceled!
CHARTER MEETING CANCELED!
In a brief announcement distributed just after 3:00 today Costa Mesa Communication Director Bill Lobdell announced that the Special Council Meeting called to place Jim Righeimer's Charter on a special ballot in June scheduled for this afternoon following the Study Session has been canceled!
Here's the full text of his message:
The special Costa Mesa City Council meeting scheduled today to discuss holding a municipal election on the City’s charter measure has been canceled. The regularly scheduled Council Study Session will begin today at 4:30 p.m., as planned.
The question now is - What happens to the Charter Scheme at this point? The clock is ticking and if they're serious about getting this thing before the voters in June they may not have enough time.
OTHER MEETINGS STILL ON THE SCHEDULE
Lobdell was unavailable for further comment at this time. I'll post more when I know more. The remainder of the meetings originally scheduled for today - the Study Session at 4:30 and the Successor Agency meeting at 6:30 - are still going forward.
