The Newport Harbor Yacht <br />Club, which is the majority property <br />owner and principal proponent of the <br />District, has requested that the hearing <br />be continued to the next Council meeting <br />on December 14. The reason for this <br />request is to permit time for the Club <br />to hold its Annual Meeting next week, <br />and to ascertain the availability of the <br />Club to finance its share of the costs. <br />Therefore, the Public Works Director <br />recommended that the public hearing be <br />opened for public testimony, if any, at <br />this time. <br />Council Member Sansone inquired as to <br />whether the Yacht Club had requested <br />that the assessment district be <br />expanded, to which, the Public Works <br />Director replied in the affirmative, <br />adding that the subject of expanding the <br />district to the east has been broached <br />as the property owners to the east who <br />are interested in doing that, and City <br />staff intend to meet with the Club <br />Representatives to discuss that option. <br />In response to whether this would <br />require expenditure of more funds for <br />new engineering surveys, etc., the <br />Public Works Director stated that he was <br />very pessimistic about the benefits of <br />• <br />expanding; the district at this late <br />date. <br />Burleigh Brewer, 1101 Dove Street, Rear <br />Commodore of the Newport Harbor Yacht <br />Club, addressed the Council regarding <br />the continuance to December 14 to allow <br />the Club time to work out their own <br />Internal financial arrangements for <br />funding the district. <br />Volume 46 - Page 380 <br />
