Popp and Greer replied that calls <br />for transportation could be handled more quickly by the extra cabs <br />and the public would be served more expeditiously. <br /> <br />Whereupon Councilman Camphouse moved that Council grant the <br />request of the Red and White Cab Company and of the San Gabriel <br />Yellow Cab Company for a license to operate one additional cab <br />each for the year 1958. Councilman Reibold seconded the motion <br />and it was carried unanimously. <br /> <br />The City Manager read a request from Mr. Nate Margolin wherein he <br />withdrew the application made in the name of Ross Himes and June <br />Nancy Himes for a zone variance to permit the erection of an <br />apartment house at the northwest corner of Santa Anita Avenue and <br />Las Tunas Drive. Said zone variance had been recommended for <br />approval by the Planning Commission and there having been an appeal <br />registered thereon, a date for a public hearing had been set for <br />February 18, 1958. <br /> <br />I <br /> <br />The City Attorney advised that the City's ordinance makes no <br />provisions for the withdrawal of an application. He stated, however, <br />that Mr. Margolin is presently the true party in interest and it <br />would appear to be an idle gesture to continue with a hearing when <br />the interested person had asked to have it withdrawn. <br /> <br />Whereupon Councilman Phillips moved that the action of Council at <br />its prior meeting of January 21, 1958, fixing February 18, 1958 <br />as the date of the hearing on the appeal of interested persons <br />from the recommendation of the Planning Commission concerning the <br />application of Ross and June Nancy Himes be rescinded, and that the <br />following minute resolution be adopted: <br /> <br />"RESOLVED, that whereas Nate Margolin, the true party in <br />interest, in the matter of the application of Ross and <br />June Nancy Himes, for a variance affecting the property <br />therein described, has requested that the application for <br />a variance theretofore filed be withdrat<n, that the <br />proceedings relative thereto be and the same are hereby <br />terminated." <br /> <br />Councilman Camphouse seconded the motion and it was carried <br />unanimously. <br /> <br />The City Attorney stated that he had recommended this adjourned <br />meeting be held in the event the Engineer's office reported the <br />advisability of withdrawing any special districts, which would <br />have had to be done by January 31, 1958; that investigation <br />revealed that the remaining special districts in Arcadia, other <br />than those established by the City, are technical only, involving <br />streets with no assessed valuation; and that accordingly there are <br />none to be withdrawn. <br /> <br />I <br /> <br />The City Attorney advised the Council that Officer Paul Harrington <br />was injured in an automobile accident on December 5, 1957, while <br />investigating a fallen tree limb in the street, when the other <br />party struck the patrol unit in the rear, causing $126.39 damage <br />to the City vehicle. Officer Harrington has recovered from his <br />injuries and the insurance company has offered to settle the case <br />for $575.00 for the personal injury and $126.39 for city property <br />damage. The City is entitled to the $126.39 property damage, and <br />$55.00 of the $575.00 for wages paid Officer Harrington while he <br />was away from work. Worlcrnen's Compensation is entitled to $95.00 <br />for medical payments paid by the fund; this is in accordance with <br />provisions of the Labor Code. He then recommended that the Council <br />authorize the Mayor and City Clerk to execute releases in behalf <br />of the City upon a release form submitted by the insurance company <br />and approved by the City Attorney. <br /> <br />2. <br /> <br />1-28-58 <br />
