The Twentynine Palms City Council will gather this evening to discuss council member conduct, miniature golf, and organic trash.
Tonight, the Twentynine Palms City Council will reconvene after a July absence. Starting with an introduction of new city employees, a public hearing will take place regarding a Lighting and Landscaping Assessment for District 1.
Next, the council will review and likely approve a $20,000 promissory note to Morongo Basin Arch to address homelessness in the city. The amount would be deducted from the $75,000 within the city’s Homeless and Housing fund.
Council will then explore the possible adoption of a code of conduct for all councilmembers. Using an example code from another city, the council will discuss and perhaps form a two-member committee to clarify details of the code.
Next, the council will discuss a potential five-year/$1 annual lease agreement with Aha Projects! for the property at 73637 Sullivan Road. This would allow for the popular miniature golf facility and arts studio (formally located at 5157 Adobe Road), Mojaveland, to establish a new presence just behind Theatre 29. Benefits of the arrangement would allow Mojaveland visitors to access paved parking and restrooms, among other perks. Mojaveland would be solely responsible for facility maintenance.
Finally, the council will review a resolution regarding waste and recycling in the city. In 2016, former Governor Jerry Brown signed SB 1383, a law designed to implement a 75 percent reduction of organic waste by 2025. The resolution would approve an agreement amendment with Burrtec to include Organic Waste Recycling.
The meeting begins at 6:00 p.m. at City Hall, 6136 Adobe Road. The event will also be livestreamed and provided on-demand via the city’s website, 29palms.org
