Parks, Mutts, Money And The Mayor
It looks like a pretty slow week ahead in Costa Mesa. Here's what's on the schedule this week.
FINANCE ADVISORY COMMITTEE
Tuesday, March 26th, the Finance Advisory Committee meets in Conference Room 3A at City Hall beginning at 3:30 p.m. You can read the agenda HERE.
NEW PARKS AND RECREATION COMMISSION
Wednesday, March 27th, the new Parks and Recreation Commission meets in City Council Chambers beginning at 6:00. That agenda is HERE. Following the swearing-in of the new and re-appointed commissioners and the election of a new Chair and Vice Chair, the commission will vote on a new fee schedule for certain adult recreation classes, HERE; the renewal of the permit for the Harbor Soaring Society, HERE, and an amendment to the Memorandum of Understanding with the Costa Mesa Bark Park Foundation, HERE. This will be the final meeting on Wednesdays this year except for November. The city council approved moving the meetings to Thursdays and holding them EVERY month henceforth.
MEETING THE MAYOR
And, on Thursday evening, March 28th, Mayor Jovial Jim Righeimer will hold the second in his monthly series of "Meet The Mayor" schmooze-fests, where residents can snuggle up to the mayor in a casual setting - a local business - and ask questions without a 3-minute time limit. The first of these events last month was a virtual love-in, with the small venue packed with sycophants and other hangers-on and a few actual concerned residents there to get information - and free pizza. This event is scheduled to be held at Fixtures Living, 3303 Hyland Avenue - in the SOCO Collection - from 6:00 - 7:30. Here's a map:
