WHAT: Will attend the Huntington Beach City Council meeting tonight to discuss the City Ordinance, which created child safety zones in city parks to protect children from registered sex offenders, and to answer questions while the City Council discusses amending the Ordinance. The City Ordinance that was passed last year is similar to the County Ordinance, proposed by District Attorney Rackauckas and Supervisor Shawn Nelson (Fourth District) and passed unanimously by the Orange County Board of Supervisors on April 5, 2011. In the past year, the Cities of Costa Mesa, Irvine, Laguna Hills, La Habra, Los Alamitos, Mission Viejo, Rancho Santa Margarita, Santa Ana, Seal Beach, Westminster, Yorba Linda, Fountain Valley, and Anaheim, have passed similar ordinances, and other cities are currently in the process of developing a similar ordinance.

 

WHEN: Tonight, Tuesday, Jan. 22, 2013, at 6:00 p.m.

 

WHERE: City Hall, 2000 Main Street, Huntington Beach
