<br />TRANSCRIPT OF THE FULL CITY COUNCIL PROCEEDINGS AS TAPE RECORDED ON FILE IN THE <br />OFFICE OF THE CITY CLERK. <br /> <br />18:7174 <br /> <br />MINUTES <br /> <br />CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF ARCADIA <br /> <br />ADJOURNED REGULAR MEETING <br /> <br />JANUARY 23, 1968 <br /> <br />I <br /> <br />Pursuant to the order of adjournment of the regular meeting of the <br />City Council on January 16, 1968, the City Council of the City of <br />Arcadia met in adjourned regular session in the Council Chamber of <br />the City Hall at 8 p.m. January 23, 1968. <br /> <br />PLEDGE OF <br />ALLEGIANCE <br /> <br />Mayor Robert J. Considine <br /> <br />ROLL CALL <br /> <br />PRESENT: <br />ABSENT: <br /> <br />Councilmen Arth, Butterworth, Forman, Hage, Considine <br />None <br /> <br />F /l~';;'" <br /> <br />Mayor Considine explained that the Local Agency Formation Commission <br />(LAFCO) would consider proposed Annexation No. 40 on January 24; that <br />the hearing on January 10 before said commission was continued until <br />that time to give the City Council time to decide on a course of <br />action inasmuch as it was apparent at that ti~ that the requested <br />division of the annexation into Nos. 40A and 40B would not be <br />acceptable to the commission. <br /> <br />PROPOSED <br />ANNExATION <br /> <br />He noted for the record that he had received a telegram and phone <br />calls from residents in the Rancho Santa Anita district opposing the <br />annexing of anything north of Huntington Drive; that in his conver- <br />sations it did not appear that those with whom he talked would object <br />to annexing the area south of Huntington Drive. <br /> <br />Pursuant to instructions at the meeting of January 16 the City <br />Manager presented a staff report reflecting economics, zoning, needed <br />capital items, boundary considerations and demographics. Included <br />were estimated revenues, annual service costs and capital improvement <br />costs. <br /> <br />Although this was not a scheduled public hearing the City Council <br />heard from a limited number of persons who desired to speak to the <br />matter. <br /> <br />I <br /> <br />Chris B. Arntz, 9163 Fairview Avenue, San Gabriel, Chairman of the <br />group for annexation, referred to petitions with approximately 1100 <br />signatures, the majority of whom reside south of Huntington Drive, <br />and explained the work which had gone into the endeavor and desire <br />to be annexed to the city. He expressed concern that the annexation <br />could be defeated if the northern portion were included because of <br />the assessed valuation. He noted that his group had favored sup- <br />porting the south of Huntington Drive annexation in the beginning but <br />had complied with the suggestion and had included the northern <br />portion in its communication. He urged the Council not to delay. <br /> <br />In response to a request by Ray Stuehrmann, 9077 Southview Road, San <br />Gabriel, the City Manager read figures as contained in a previous <br />report setting forth estimated annual revenue, current operating <br />costs and capital improvements needed at some time in the future. <br /> <br />1. <br /> <br />1-23-68 <br />
