LA MESA -- Because of Tuesday's Veterans Day holiday, the City Council meets Wednesday at 4 p.m. for the first of the lame duck sessions following last Tuesday's elections.
The meeting agenda is fairly routine, but the transition from long-sitting Mayor Art Madrid to the new mayor Mark Arapostathis and two new members begins with this session.
Council member Ernie Ewin, who is leaving the council at year's end, continues on this agenda his series of items meant to get on the record issues he wants to keep front and center as he gives up the mantle.
Among Ewin's parting concerns are handling the marijuana dispensaries that opened illegally in the last few months as the city was considering the dispensary proposition -- which was soundly defeated by the voters. Ewin also wants to revisit facts about trolley security, merchant impacts of the streetscape project and the impact of the passage of term limits and reclassification of the City Clerk position.
The meeting begins at 4 p.m. in the Council Chambers on Allison Avenue.
