An engineering firm is requesting $5.750 to continue and find out how regulatory agencies would respond to the proposal of a pier to accommodate visiting cruise ships. Several cruise lines have voiced approval with two saying they would assist in the financing of the construction. The lines have alsa said that because tendering has be- come such a thing of the past. m the near future, they may disregard Catalina as a stopover if a pier is not constructed. David Creigh pointed out ada- mantly how important the Cruise days are to local businesses, and also volunteered to organize a business faction who would donate funds to cushion the expense of the engineeringofinns' investigation. Council agw. to foot the bill but also agreed to accept any do- nations from businesses that would bring the amount down. "Loss of the cruise ships would have a dev- astating effect on the community," Creigh said. Council also voted to continue on with steps to seek a l0 percent increase in salt water fees, and a 15 percent rate increase in solid waste fees. The next step for the city in the process is to mail letters of notification to propery' owners on Feb. 27, 2012, followed by a report created with each property owner's proposed fee on March 26. April 17, 2012, a public hear-" ing will take place with the first reading of the ordinance, and at that time the public will have the opportunity to comment either in person or in writing. Avalon Chief Administration Of- ricer Charles Wagner said the rate increase is necessary for the con- tinuation of sewer line repair and the replacement of forty new valves throughout the city. The repairs and valve replacements will greatly as- sist the city with the approaching state-mandated June Cease and De- sist deadline to address waste con- tamination in the harbor.
