    Councilwoman Bonnie Lowenthal Agendizes Request That City Mgr. Investigate "Potential Negative Impacts" If U.S. Goes To War

    We post text of agendizing memo

    Iraq rally Feb. 15/03
    Councilwoman Lowenthal at Feb. 15 LB rally opposing U.S. military action in Iraq.
    (February 28, 2003) -- 1st district Councilwoman Bonnie Lowenthal has agendized the following item for the March 4 City Council meeting:

    "There has been much discussion inferring potential impacts to individual cities should the United States enter into a war with Iraq. Due to varied perspectives that have been released only speculating impact, I would like to request that the City Manager investigate what are the potential negative impacts to the City of Long Beach should the United States go to war.

    Please include in the report any impact the nation-wide "call-up" of reservists may or may not have on the City's ability to react as "first responders" in the event of any related emergency in the City including the Port of Long Beach. Please include a brief update on funds spent by the Port of Long Beach and the City to comply with new federal security regulations and what portion of these expenses have been reimbursed by the federal government. Due to current worldwide deliberations around war with Iraq, I believe it is imperative that this information be brought to the Council as soon as possible.

    Thank you for your consideration of this request."
