Gay Pride, Book Fair, Rush Hour Traffic on Tonight’s WeHo Council Agenda


city council meetingTwo of West Hollywood’s major public events will be on the City Council agenda tonight. The Council will consider whether to authorize spending an additional $150,000 to create “West Hollywood Pride,” a city-branded supplement to the annual LA Pride event. It will consider, and likely discuss, a report that shows attendance at the annual fall book fair fell by 30 percent last year despite a 38 percent increase in spending on the event.

The Council will also decide whether to spend money to test whether traffic control officers can speed rush hour traffic through key intersections along Santa Monica Boulevard. And it will decide whether to study the impact on city life and the economy of so-called “peer to peer” businesses such as Lyft, Uber and Airbnb, which operate largely outside the regulations imposed on the taxis, limousine services and hotels with which they compete.

The Council will also vote on whether to renew its contract with Los Angeles County for key city services such as law enforcement. It will take a look at suggestions for improving the Helen Albert Farmer’s Market at Plummer Park.

The Council meeting, which is open to the public, begins at 6:30 p.m. in the City Council Chambers adjacent to the West Hollywood Library at 625 San Vicente Blvd. between Santa Monica and Melrose.
