MORRO BAY CITY COUNCIL REGULAR MEETING – SEPTEMBER 11, 2018 – PUBLIC HEARING Item B-1
The Clerk announced twelve timely submitted protests had been received since the last tally, bringing the total to 2,158, not including those delivered by Ms. Donnelly. Mr. Pannone advised the Council regarding its options related to the 1,000 incomplete protests that had been submitted by Ms. Donnelly earlier in the evening.
Following discussion, there was Council concurrence not to accept those 1,000 additional incomplete protests submitted based on Ms. Hawley’s statement the votes were cast before the 218 process began, were cast on an undefined issue and did not include a date. Further, the Council determined there had been ample opportunity during the protest period to resubmit a complete protest, if desired. There was discussion about the desire to validate all the protests received based on the belief there are many invalid protests in the rough count of 2,158.
MOTION: Council Member Davis moved the Council adopt both water and sewer (wastewater) surcharges through the adoption of Resolution No. 71-18 for the proposed Water Reclamation Facility. The motion was seconded by Council Member Headding and carried unanimously, 5-0.
