Mayor Phillips then inquired if anyone in the audience <br />wished to be heard in favor of the granting of the requested permit. <br /> <br />Mr. Marvin Charles Jones, the applicant, addressed the Council, <br />stating in part that he was the sole proprietor of the Jones Music <br />Company, 12235 Ventura Blvd., Studio City, California, and that he <br />had been asked by the owners of the Santa Anita Bowling Alley to <br />install five skill games at 176 Las Tunas Boulevard. He displayed <br />brochures showing the types of amusement games desired and commented ., , <br />that these machines were used in bowling alleys primarily to idle <br />away the time while waiting for alleys and also by youngsters while <br />waiting for their parents using the alleys. <br /> <br />In answer to questions asked of him by the Councilmen, he stated <br />that the machines would be placed in the main concourse of the <br />bowling alley, which is closest to the west and east side of the <br />building; that he has been operating in Los Angeles County for <br />approximately a year and a half, but that the only machine his <br />company has in this area is a jute box at the miniature golf course <br />at 600 Las Tunas Drive; that machines are leased from his company <br />on a percentage basis, with the lessee supplying the space and <br />electricity. <br /> <br />Mayor Phillips then asked if anyone in the audience wished to speak <br />in opposition to the application. No one desiring to speak, <br />Councilman Reibold moved that the hearing be closed. Councilman <br />Jacobi seconded the motion and it was carried unanimously. <br /> <br />Councilman Reibold commented that the applicant's machines seem to <br />be a little different than the type of games heretofore brought <br />before the Council and that it would be his suggestion to give the <br />matter further thought and study, and also would like to have a <br />report from the staff. He thereupon moved that the matter be held <br />over for further study and report from staff and placed on agenda <br />for the next regular Council meeting. Councilman Camphouse <br />seconded the motion and it was carried unanimously. <br /> <br />1. <br /> <br />8-19- 58 <br />
