At the outset of the Twentynine Palms City Council meeting, it was announced that a closed session discussion on a performance appraisal for City Attorney Patrick Munoz would reconvene after the regular meeting; no details of the closed session were disclosed. During public comment, Southern California Edison representative Jennifer Cusack reported that the Project Leatherneck upgrades, which had been delayed by nesting birds, are nearing completion. She said that there will be a widespread planned power outage on the evening of July 10. Affected parties will be notified directly. Council member Jim Harris reported that a speaker at a recent San Bernardino Associated Governments meeting had warned of likely closure of more, and perhaps all, court services in Joshua Tree. In a public hearing, the Council approved a Planning Commission recommendation granting a Conditional Use Permit for a car sales business on Adobe Road, and concurred in the Commission’s denial of several requests for variances for the business. City Finance Director Ron Peck mopped up several budget-related questions that arose in a previous Council meeting. Some Council members expressed appreciation for the relative brevity of this year’s budget materials. Then the Council unanimously approved the budget for 2013-2014. Finally, the Council determined that it will meet once during July, and once during August.
