Five things to watch for at Laguna Niguel council meeting – Orange County Register

The Laguna Niguel City Council will meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday, June 20 at City Hall, 30111 Valley Parkway.

Here are five topics to be addressed by the council:

Sheriff’s contract: The fifth item on the consent calendar pertains to the $13.3 million law enforcement contract for the 2017-18 fiscal year.

Included in the contract is funding for two new Orange County Sheriff’s Department deputies trained in DUI and traffic enforcement. The sheriff’s contract is about $1.8 million more expensive than the 2016-17 contract.

The council discussed the prospect of adding up to four new officers at the last meeting, but settled on adding two additional deputies.

The council will vote on whether to authorize the mayor to sign the law enforcement agreement.

Recognizing service: Assistant City Manager Dan Fox will leave his post next month to become the next city manager of Diamond Bar.

A resolution commending Fox for his 14 years of work for the city will be presented toward the beginning of the meeting.

Fee waiver: Formed in 2015, the Laguna Niguel Community Theatre is seeking an extended rental of the Crown Valley Park Amphitheater for its summer production of “Into the Woods.”

In addition, the group is requesting all use permit fees be waived. Since 2015, the council has waived almost $18,000 in costs for the community theater.

The council could waive up to $4,350 in summer fees, according to a staff report.

Meeting cancellation: The council will seek approval to cancel the July 4 council meeting. If approved, the next council meeting will take place on July 18.

Community center: Construction costs for the new community center and other improvements are expected be about $25 million, according to a staff report.
