BASIC CITY COUNCIL MEETING RULES

AGENDAS - The City Council meets Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday at 10:00 A.M. The agendas for City Council meetings contain a brief general description of those items to be considered at the meetings. Council Agendas are available in the Office of the City Clerk, Council and Public Services Division, Room 395, City Hall, 200 North Spring Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012, and on the City's website at lacity.org; or lacouncilcalendar.com

Ten (10) members of the Council constitute a quorum for the transaction of business. The Council may consider an item not listed on the agenda only if it is determined by a two-thirds (10) vote that the need for action arose after the posting of an Agenda. Some items on the agenda may be approved without any discussion, however, any item may be called "special" by a Councilmember. If an item is called "special" it will be "held" until the remainder of the items on the Council agenda have been acted on by the Council. An item may also be called "special" if a member of the public has requested to speak on the item and a public hearing was not previously held.

The City Clerk will announce the items to be considered by the Council, however items will be grouped. For example, all items for which required public hearings have not previously been held are listed in one section on the printed agenda. The Council President will ask if any Councilmember or member or the public wishes to speak on one or more of these items. If anyone wishes to speak on an item, it will be called "special". The remaining items in this section will be voted on by Council with one roll call vote.

PUBLIC INPUT AT CITY COUNCIL MEETINGS - An opportunity for the public to address the Council on agenda items for which public hearings have not been held will be provided at the time the item is considered or during the Multiple Agenda Item Comment period. Members of the public who wish to speak on items shall be allowed to speak for up to one minute per item up to a total of three minutes per meeting. The Council has determined that a cumulative total of 20 minutes is a reasonable minimum amount of time for the Multiple Agenda Item segment of each regular meeting.

The Council will also provide an opportunity for the public to speak on public interest items. Each speaker shall be limited to one minute of general public comment each regular meeting for a cumulative total of ten (10) minutes. The Council shall not discuss or take action relative to any general public comment.

If you wish to provide documents to the full Council for consideration on an item, please present the Sergeant-At-Arms with 35 copies. Otherwise, your materials will simply be added to the official record.

COUNCIL DISCUSSION AND TIME LIMITS - Councilmembers requesting to address the Council will be recognized by the Council President in the order requested. For any item, the Chairperson of the Committee, or the maker of the original motion, or the member calling a matter "special" shall have up to six (6) minutes to discuss the item. All other Councilmembers may speak up to three (3) minutes each on the matter. After all members desiring to speak on a question have had an opportunity to be heard once, the time for each Member desiring to speak again shall be limited to a maximum of three (3) minutes.

A motion calling the "previous question" may be introduced by any member during a Council debate. If adopted, this motion will terminate debate on a matter and the Chair will instruct the Clerk to call the roll on the matter.

VOTING AND DISPOSITION OF ITEMS
- Most items require a majority vote of the entire membership of the Council (8 members). Items which have not been discussed in a Council Committee and have been placed directly on the agenda will require 10 votes to consider. Once considered, these items will normally require eight (8) affirmative votes to be adopted. Ordinances require a unanimous vote (at least 12 members must be present) in order to be adopted on first consideration. If an ordinance does not receive the necessary unanimous vote, it is laid over one calendar week. The votes required for approval on second consideration vary and depend upon the type of ordinance, but a typical ordinance requires eight (8) affirmative votes upon second consideration.

When debate on an item is completed, the Chair will instruct the Clerk to "call the roll". Every member present must vote for or against each item; abstentions are not permitted. The Clerk will announce the votes on each item. Any member of Council may move to "reconsider" any vote on any item on the agenda, except to adjourn, suspend the Rules, or where an intervening event has deprived the Council of jurisdiction, providing that said member originally voted on the prevailing side of the item. The motion to "reconsider" shall only be in order once during the meeting, and once during the next regular meeting. The member requesting reconsideration shall identify for all members present the agenda number, Council file number and subject matter previously voted upon. A motion to reconsider is not debatable and shall require an affirmative vote of eight (8) members of the Council.

When the Council has failed by sufficient votes to approve or reject an item, and has not lost jurisdiction over the matter, or has not caused it to be continued beyond the next regular meeting, the item is continued to the next regular meeting for the purpose of allowing the Council to again vote on the matter.

The City Council rules provide that all items adopted by the Council will not be presented to the Mayor, or other designated officer by the City Clerk until the adjournment of the regular Council meeting following the date of the Council action. A motion to send an item "forthwith" if adopted by ten (10) votes, suspends these rules and requires the City Clerk to forward the matter to the Mayor, or other officer, without delay.

RULE 16 MOTIONS
- Council Rule No. 16, in part, allows a member to send an item directly to the Council without it having to go to a Council Committee first, by giving the City Clerk a motion (seconded by an additional member) during a Council session to be placed on the next regular available Council agenda.

ADMINISTRATIVE EXEMPTION and ENERGY, CLIMATE CHANGE, AND ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE  COMMITTEE REPORT relative to proposed lease between the Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) and the Bureau of Sanitation (BOS) for the development of the Argo Drain Sub-Basin Storm Water Facility on five acres of land owned by the LAWA.

 

Recommendations for Council action, SUBJECT TO THE APPROVAL OF THE MAYOR:

 

  1. ADOPT the determination of the Board of Airport Commissioners (Board) that the proposed lease with the BOS for the development of the Argo Drain Sub-Basin Storm Water Facility on five acres of land owned by the LAWA is exempt from the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) pursuant to Article II Section 2(I) of the Los Angeles CEQA Guidelines.

  2. APPROVE the updated 50-year leave with the BOS for the Argo Drain Sub-Basin Storm Water Facility at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).

  3. CONCUR with the Board’s action of June 14, 2018 by Resolution 26515 authorizing the Chief Executive Officer, LAWA, to execute the updated 50-year Lease to reflect an increase in LAWA's capital participation for total contribution of $14,777,862 with the BOS for the Argo Drain Sub-Basin Storm Water Facility at LAX.

  4. FIND that a proposed lease term of 50 years would be in the best interest of the City.

  5. AUTHORIZE the Board of Public Works, on behalf of the BOS, and Board to execute a proposed 50-year lease agreement, attached to the Council file, between the BOS and LAWA for the construction, operation and maintenance of the Argo Drain Sub-Basin Storm Water Facility on five acres of land owned by the LAWA, subject to the review and approval of the City Attorney as to form and legality.

  6. DIRECT the BOS, LAWA, and the City Administrative Officer (CAO) to pursue alternative uses for the surface area of the property to generate revenues to offset the cost of the lease agreement. 

 

Fiscal Impact Statement:  The CAO reports that both the BOS and LAWA anticipate that the cost of the lease will be fully offset by LAWA’s costs, comprised of half of the operation and maintenance (O and M) costs and the costs associated with the Imperial Drainage Basin Project, which diverts stormwater runoff to the BOS's Hyperion Treatment Plant.  These associated costs include the annual Sewer Service Charges (SSC), Significant Industrial User (SIU) Fee, and Inspection and Control (IC) Fee. 

 

The BOS will inherently bear an estimated total cost of $794,000 per year within the Stormwater Pollution Abatement (SPA) Fund.  This cost consists of the annual O and M costs for the Argo Drain Facility ($511,291) and the SSC, SIU Fee, and IC Fee that the SPA Fund has to reimburse to the Sewer Construction and Maintenance Fund for the rent offsets.  The SPA Fund, which carries a structural deficit, is currently being subsidized by the City General Fund.  Therefore, if BOS's costs are not offset by corresponding reductions in the SPA Fund in future years, the City General Fund will be impacted.  Should the BOS elect to sublease the surface area, it may generate revenue to either fully or partially offset the costs associated with the lease.  The total cost of the Argo Drain Facility Project is fully funded by Proposition O General Obligation Bond funds and LAWA.  The proposed Lease agreement complies with the adopted Financial Policies.
