<br />Ji-q I~' <br /> <br />HEARING <br />(Crowley) <br /> <br />/( <br />! <br />\1 9<Y <br />* #~ <br /> <br />1.- <br /> <br />HEARING <br />(Zone <br />Change) <br /> <br />Mayor Reibo1d declared the hearing open on the application of Mrs. <br />Charles Crowley, doing business as Crowley Brothers, 2508 North Angeles <br />Avenue, San Gabriel, for a business permit to allow rubbish pickup from <br />unfinished dwellings at the request of the contractors or builders <br />(business and residential areas), and inquired if anyone desired to speak <br />in opposition to the granting of the application. No one desired to speak <br />in opposition. He then inquired if anyone desired to speak in favor of <br />the granting of the application. <br /> <br />Mrs. Charles Crowley, the applicant, addressed the Council, stating in <br />substance that it was the intention of her company to pick up and haul <br />away all debris left by builders in the construction of new dwellings. <br /> <br />I <br /> <br />A general discussion ensued. Councilman Phillips inquired if the City's <br />regulations distinguish between new dwellings and other dwellings. The <br />City Manager replied that it was his understanding that an unfinished <br />residential dwelling is considered a commercial building until it is <br />finished, and the City Attorney added that the contractor has the authority <br />to haul away his own debris; that building done by a contractor is a <br />commercial venture while in the process of construction; that the City <br />has not granted an exclusive refuse contract to anyone except for the <br />regularly scheduled pickup of refuse in residential areas; and that Council <br />is not barred from granting a permit of this type. <br /> <br />In answer to Mayor Reibo1d's question as to whether the applicant <br />proposes to haul debris only or to clean up the premises and haul away <br />the debris, applicant advised that her company proposes to do both. <br /> <br />Councilman Camphouse stated that in his opinion the type of function <br />proposed by applicant is different than specified in the application; <br />that cleaning up premises and hauling away debris would come under the <br />category provided by the City for gardeners and the like, and that the <br />application should be revised. <br /> <br />Upon the applicant advising that her company hauls rubbish from industrial <br />construction in Pasadena but proposes to haul debris only from residential <br />construction in Arcadia, Mayor Reibo1d commented that he did not think <br />the appropriate type of permit is being applied for in this instance and <br />Councilman Camphouse felt that the applicant would be better served if the <br />application was held pending clarification with the Business License <br />Division. <br /> <br />The City Attorney stated that some refinements have been made in past <br />permits; that the City's ordinance contains a specific provision exempting <br />from the permit sections landscape gardeners and the like so that they do <br />not require a permit but only a business license and that it is probable <br />in the present case that the problem presented is caused by the nature of <br />the work the applicant does in other areas coupled with the generali- <br />zations set forth in the application; and that he suggested that the matter <br />be continued and the application referred to staff for report and recom- <br />mendation back to the Council. I <br /> <br />Whereupon:Counci1man Camphouse moved that the hearing be continued and th <br />matter referred to staff for report and recommendation to Council. <br />Councilman Balser seconded the motion and it was carried unanimously. <br /> <br />Mayor Reibo1d declared the hearing open on Planning Commission Resolution <br />Nos. 362 and 364 recommending classification and reclassification of <br />territory designated as West Arcadia Annexation No. 14 and Annexation <br />No. 17-A Southwest Arcadia Inhabited. <br /> <br />The Director of Public Works displayed a map of the area in question and <br />pointed out the properties involved. <br /> <br />The City Clerk read in full a communication dated April 2, 1960 from <br />Freeman E. Gates, 755 West Naomi Avenue, which stated in substance that a <br /> <br />2. <br /> <br />4-5-60 <br />
