From page -1 4.1703(g)(1) could he'interpreted to allow a permit to be issued'to a residence instead of to the person living in that residence. The report also said the code could be interpreted to allow tran- sient and non-transient residents of a unit to use the owner's autoette. Campbell report said that rep- resentatives of the Hermosa Hotel have argued that the hotel is enti- tled to apply for 32 autoette per- mits over the counter, without City Council approval. City Attorney Campbell's report said there were approxi- mately 1,116 residential autoette permits in Avalon in October. "There is space for approxi- mately 990 autoettes to park in the fiats area of the city, tradi- . .. tionally the most congested-park- ing area," the report said. "This figure assumes no other vehicles are parked on the fiats and that no parking restrictions are in place." The report said there are 598 dwelling units in Avalon; 526 in "multiunit" buildings and 72 in hotels. The report concluded that an additional 260 autoette permits could be issued if those permits were issued to property owners rather than to residents. "This influx of autoettes would add to traffic congestion, com- pound the scarcity of parking and could harm local autoette busi- nesses," Campbell's report said. Fundi the centennial eel- ebration That same night, the City Council asked staff to look at what the Avalon Centennial Celebration will cost. Mayor Kennedy said Avalonwould not hire a consul- tant or public relations firm to rep- resent the city's 100th anniversary celebration. Uons tO name concession stand The Avalon Lions Club offered to make a $4,000 donation to Joe Machado Field in exchange for fhe right to name the field's concession stand. Staff presented the request to the council and asked for direc- tion on how the city should handle future requests for "naming rights" in the city's recreational areas.

The council also: Approved the renewal of 29 waterside permits. Authorized the finance di- rector to apply for $106,643 in transportation funds from the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority. Moved Prop 1B funds from the Lower Terrace Road Project to citywide street repairs. Los Ange- les County gave Avalon $400,000 in Prop 1Bfunds in 2008-09. Ava- lon designated those funds for the Lower Terrace Road Project. However, the project has been extended. The problem: Prop 1B-funds must be spent by June 30, 2013, or the city has to return the money with interest. Avalon staff recommended moving the money from the Lower Terrace Road Project to the, city road repair project. S &BLAIR Authorized city staff to ap- ply for a grant to replace the city's trolleys with ree electric buses. Rest in Peace:, JackDunn Jack Orville Dunn, age 87, passed away Thursday, Nov. 15 at his home in Newport Beach. Dunn and his wife Delores started visit- ing Avalon in the early 1960s and soon purchased a home on Las L0- mas.They met many local people in Avalon in those early years who became lifetime friends. Those early 3'isits to Catalina introduced Avalon to his sons Ed and Jerry who later made Avalon their home. Dunn purchased Scari's res- taurant in Avalon during the early 1980s and operated it with the help of their son Ed for several years. Dunn loved Avalon, and in recent years whenJt was difficult for him to travel hewas always interested in the changes and local politics going on through reading the Is- lander and conversations with his son, Jerry Dunn or grandson Chris Dunn. Dunn is survived by his son Jerry and daughter in law Kelly of Avalon, his son Rick of Whittier and grandson Chris of Newport Beach and Avalon. He was preced- ed in death by his wife Delores and son Ed. Dunn will be laid to rest in Avalon Cemetery next to his loving wife Delores 4 Friday, December 7, 2012 THE CATALINA ISLANDER
