Pasadena City Council on Tuesday voted 6-2, with Ornaldo Ybarra and Don Harrison opposed, to approve, on final reading, an annexation agreement with the City of La Porte to amend the extraterritorial jurisdiction boundaries between the two cities.
Harrison said he was concerned that the agreement would “benefit La Porte more than Pasadena” and expressed concerns with the Second Century Corporation.
Ybarra said he had concerns with “doing drainage work for the City of La Porte when the City of Pasadena has areas that need drainage work”.
Other council members spoke in support of the ordinance. Council Member Phil Cayten said the agreement was “a win-win situation for both cities for drainage”. Council Member Darrell Morrison also said the project was designed to minimize structural flooding in Pasadena.
The city council voted unanimously to approve, on final reading, a change order to a contract for work at the Golden Acres Wastewater Treatment Plant for the emergency repair of a 48-inch sanitary sewer line.
The change order will increase the contract by $12,300.
The city council voted unanimously to approve, on first reading, an ordinance approving the form of water supply agreements for industries in the city's industrial district.
All other items were approved by unanimous vote. The council seat held by Erv Brannon is currently unfilled. All other members were present. Agenda
