Surprise Airport Announcement: Councilman Webb Says He Plans Aug. 13 Council Airport Item "That Will Be A Series Of Local Communities Not Only In Opposition, But With A Solution"; Follows OC Resident Urging LB To Join Northern OC and Southeast L.A. County Cities In Opposing Airport Flight Increases
(August 6, 2002) -- After a public speaker from Orange County urged the LB City Council to join northern OC and southeast L.A. County cities in coordinated opposition to LB Airport flight increases beyond what LB's noise budgeted flight limits allow, 8th district Councilman Rob Webb made the following surprise announcement at tonight's City Council meeting:
"...I was just pointing to our City Attorney that what your suggestion was sounds very similar to a resolution that will be in front of the City Council next week, and I'm asking to be on the agenda next week, that will be a series of local communities joining forces not only in opposition but with a solution."
Councilman Webb did not elaborate but invited the speaker to return and take part in that discussion.
