ORDINANCE No. 1160-17 An Ordinance of the City Council of the City of Avalon Amending Sec. 3-2.103 (a) of Municipal Code to Extend the Due Date For the Catalina Island Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau to Present Its Audited Report WHEREAS, the City provides 22% of its Transient Occupancy Tax revenue to the Catalina Island Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau to promote the City. WHEREAS, one of the conditions placed upon the Chamber is that it must present its audited results to the City. The current due date for the audit presentation is on or before the first day of September, only two months after its fiscal year end of June 30. WHEREAS, this causes an undue financial burden on the Chamber because July and August are the peak times for auditors and their rates to perform the audit are higher. July and Augustare also Avalon's peak times for the tourist season which causes an operational burden on the City and the Chamber of Chamber because there is insufficient time to complete and present the audit on or before the first day of September. WHEREAS, Staff recommends to amend Sec. 3-2.103 (a) by replacing "September" with "November"; and recommends the deadline be extended by two months to the first day of November; and WHEREAS, the amended section would read: "On or before the first day of November of each fiscal year, the Chamber of Commerce shall submit to the City a report containing an accounting of the use of funds provided by the City during the previous fiscal year, setting forth with particularity and in accordance with professional accounting standards the amount and nature of all such expenditures;" The city council of the City of Avalon does ordain as follows: Section 3.1.103(a) is amended to read as follows: Section 3-2.103(a) Conditions of Expenditures (a) On or before the first day of November of each fiscal year, the Chamber of Commerce shall submit to the City a report containing an accounting of the use of funds provided by the City during the previous fiscal year, setting forth with particularity and in accordance with professional accounting standards the amount and nature of all such expenditures;" The City clerk is directed to publish this ordinance in accordance with California law.

Marshall, Mayor ATTEST: Denise A. Radde, CityClerk APPROVED AS TO FORM: BEST BEST & KRIEGER LLP Scott H. Campbell, City Attorney From page 1 Yacht Club and the fact that it is to have a clubhouse built right away, just north of the Tuna Club. The site is where the local boatmen had a floor constructed some years ago--but there the matter slept. In his article Stiles says: "Every inch spread and no safe place to go' no longer will be a byword among Southern California's yachtsmen as they pilot their craft towards the beck- oning shores of Catalina Island, for within three months the 'Magic Isle' is to become the site of a new and flourishing yacht club. Details of this new proj- ect, which has long been awaited by the seagoing members of the local yachting fraternity, were announced Saturday, and mark a new epoch in the Corinthian annals of Southern California. "To be able to 'travel on' to Avalon with mind at ease in the knowledge that safe mooring and a warm home await their arrival in the island city has been but a wish and a dream. Now it is to become a reality, and the good news will be warmly received from San Francisco to the placid waters of San Diego. "This new club, to be known as the Catalina Island Yacht Club, has already been organized and is now inthe process of soliciting memberships. "Although application blanks have no yet been issued, $5000 have already been subscribed and work will be started immediately on a $25,000 clubhouse to be located just east of the Tuna Club in Avalon. The official opening of this club is planned for about May 15 and already there is talk of staging a big racing regatta during the summer, a regatta which promises to become an annual classic. "Drawings for the clubhouse were Completed by Harry J. Vaughn, architect and Claude G. Putnam, artist. Board of Directors "The board of directors, elect- ed Saturday, follow: "President G. Benton Wilson, admiral of the Southern California Yachting Association and com- modore of the Los Angeles Yacht Club; first vice-president, Charles R. Ramsey, chairman of the power boat regatta commit- tee of the Newport Harbor Yacht Club; second vice-president, Howard G. Miller; secretary- treasurer, E. R. Abbot, secre- tary-treasurer of the Los Angeles Yacht Club; W. W. Wilson and James W. Jump, past commodore of the' Los Angeles Yacht Club, vice-president of the Tuna Club of Catalina and president of the Campfire Club. "The William Wrigley Company has given the club a 50-year lease on a roadstead and building site extending east from near the Tuna Club to Sugar Loaf. The clubhouse itself will be fashioned after a lighthouse and will have a tower with a light which is to be seen for a radius of ten miles. "The enclosed part of the lower floor, in which there is to be a ballroom, office, restrooms for both men and women and sleeping accommodations for two attendants, will be 50x50 feet square. A walk will run along- side stating at the boardwalk and merging into an awning- covered porch extending thirty feet beyond the French windows of the ballroom. "At one corner of this porch a pier will extend out, terminating in two gangplanks which are to lead down to a 12x50-foot float that will allow yachts to come alongside and save the yachtsmen the inconvenience of the compul- sory use of dinghies. Year-Round Landing "In the winter, this float will be removed and provisions wilt be made for the yachts to come up to the pier itself. Thus, this new club assures the yachtsmen both summer and winter landings that will be at once safe and con- venient, as well as safe moorings covering as large an area as that of the California Yacht Club. The anchorage space will be greater than that of the Newport club. "Memberships are now being solicited at $500 and $100 each for boat owners, and $25 for associate members or non-boat owners. Dues are to be $20 a year, payable in advance, for boat owners and $10 a year for associ- ates. "Prominent yachtsmen of many clubs are hearty boost- ers for the club and are high- ly enthusiastic over it. Among the strongest boosters and most active workers are Dr. Albert Soiland, admiral of the Pacific Coast Yachting Association; Commodore Herbert Cornish of the California Yacht Club; Ray Thomas, president of the Tuna Club; Commodore Billy Fenton, Frank Smith, and Shelly Meserve, Newport Harbor Yacht Club; Commodore Butcher of the Santa Barbara Yacht Club and William Wrigley, Jr. "The present subscribed mem- bers of the club and their yacht follow: "G.
