Introduction and first reading of a new ordinance that will move the city’s general municipal elections to the first Tuesday after the first Monday in March of each even-numbered year beginning in March 2020

During the last City Council meeting, the Council was presented with a memo providing an update on California Senate Bill 415.

In addition, the City Council also approved four items on the consent calendar with a 4-0-1 vote, with Councilmember Pu absent from voting, which include:
