<br />~ <br /> <br />M I NUT E S <br /> <br />CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF ARCADIA <br /> <br />STUDY SESSION <br /> <br />JULY 26, 1962 <br /> <br />I <br /> <br />The City Council of the City of Arcadia met in study session in the <br />Conference Room of the City Hall at 7:30 P.M., July 26,1962. <br /> <br />PRESENT : <br />ABSENT : <br /> <br />Councilmen Balser, Reibold, Turner, Butterworth <br />Councilman Phillips <br /> <br />Discussion held on the possible door to door solicitation measure to <br />be placed on the ballot in November, 1962 in order to permit the <br />electorate to vote on whether or not it desired continued door to door <br />solicitation or complete banning of such practice. <br /> <br />It was brought out that the City has Ordinance No. 1188 which prohibits <br />any residence from being solicited if it has been posted "No Solicitors". <br /> <br />The effect on non-profit organizations explored (Girl Scouts, Campfire <br />Girls and others). Many related factors discussed at length, including <br />the fact that the regulation does not cover money-raising projects. <br /> <br />The City Attorney pointed out that the wording of the proposed ordinance <br />would necessarily have to cover every aspect which could possibly be <br />anticipated. <br /> <br />It was estimated that such consolidated election with the State and <br />County would cost approximately $3000. <br /> <br />Councilman Turner stated in part that in his op1n10n it would not be <br />wise to spend the money to accomplish something that the Councilmen had <br />been elected to do; that the present regulations protect residents who <br />do not wish to be disturbed. <br /> <br />Mayor Butterworth was of the opinion that the matter should go before <br />the electorate. <br /> <br />Councilman Balser was in favor also of placing the matter on the ballot. <br />That he is of the opinion that the public does not like the idea of <br />placing a sign on property. <br /> <br />I <br /> <br />Councilman Reibold commented that he was not certain just what the public <br />does desire in this matter; that he would be willing to have it placed on <br />the ballot if it could be properly handled. <br /> <br />Conclusion: That the City Attorney revise the Ordinance and submit to <br />the Council for future discussion. <br /> <br />Discussion held on proposed Ordinance No. 1190 (Skill game prohibition). <br />Comments included the fact that such an ordinance would effect the <br />miniature golf course on Live Oak Avenue, bazaars, church events. The <br />City Manager mentioned the fact that the only real problem during the <br />current year was the occurrenc;e at the "73 Club" on Huntington Drive. <br /> <br />After discussion the City Attorney was requested to endeavor to prepare <br />another draft of the proposed ordinance to permit the miniature golf <br />course, clubs, etc. to proceed; that this matter may not go before the <br />voters. <br />
