ARCADIA CITY COUNCIL <br /> REGULAR MEETING MINUTES <br /> TUESDAY, MARCH 21, 2017 <br /> REGULAR CITY COUNCIL MEETING <br /> 7:00 p.m. <br /> CALL TO ORDER — Mayor Beck called the regular meeting to order at 7:02 p.m. <br /> INVOCATION — Reverend Terry Keenan, The Santa Anita Church <br /> PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE — Jason Kruckeberg, Assistant City Manager/Development <br /> Services Director <br /> ROLL CALL OF CITY COUNCIL MEMBERS <br /> PRESENT: Amundson, Chandler, Tay, Verlato, and Beck <br /> ABSENT: None <br /> REPORT FROM CITY ATTORNEY REGARDING CLOSED/SESSION ITEMS <br /> City Attorney Deitsch announced that the City Council met in a Special Closed Session Meeting <br /> to consider the items listed on the posted agenda, he described Item "a" as pending litigation, <br /> no reportable action taken; Item "b" as anticipated litigation, no reportable action taken; and Item <br /> "c", no reportable action taken. <br /> City Attorney Deitsch announced that the City Council has authorized and directed him to read <br /> the following statement, although not required by law: On February 21, 2017, the City Council <br /> adopted a Resolution in effect denying an appeal by Verizon Wireless from a Planning <br /> Commission decision, and further denying a conditional use permit and related matters sought <br /> by Verizon for a certain cell tower at The Church of the Transfiguration property at 1881 So. <br /> First Avenue. The deadline for Verizon to file a complaint in State court seeking to overturn the <br /> City Council decision is May 22, 2017, and the corresponding deadline is March 22, 2017, to file <br /> a Federal court complaint. By letter dated February 28, 2017, Verizon requested tolling the <br /> deadline for filing a Federal court action to match the State court filing deadline of May 22, 2017. <br /> Verizon indicated that in the meantime, it is analyzing whether or not to file litigation. In closed <br /> session discussing potential litigation under the Ralph M. Brown Act held on March 7, 2017, the <br /> City Council approved tolling the deadline for filing a Federal court complaint to match the State <br /> court deadline of May 22, 2017, with the hope that Verizon will determine that it is not <br /> worthwhile to file litigation in either State or Federal court. It should be noted that this tolling <br /> does not allow Verizon to expand the record in this matter, since the record has been closed. <br /> SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION FROM CITY MANAGER REGARDING AGENDA ITEMS <br /> City Manager Lazzaretto stated there was no supplemental agenda information. <br /> 1 03-21-2017 <br />
