OKAY.

MY NAME IS CHUCK KERLIKOWSKE.

I'M A LAWYER AND I REPRESENT THE QUAN FAMILY, WHICH IS THE OWNER OF THE WEST RIDGE GOLF COURSE FOR WHICH MEASURE X WAS THE SUBJECT.

UH, I JUST, I HAPPENED TO NOTICE THAT, UH, A FEW MINUTES AGO, MANY OF THE NEW COUNCIL MEMBERS WERE GIVEN AN OATH AND THAT OATH INCLUDED THE OBLIGATION TO UPHOLD THE LAWS OF THIS STATE, AS WELL AS BOTH THE UNITED STATES AND THE CALIFORNIA CONSTITUTION, UH, BY CERTIFYING THE ELECTION RESULTS.

AND BY MOVING FORWARD IN THE FUTURE, WITH RESPECT TO WHATEVER YOU'RE GOING TO DO WITH THOSE RESULTS, UH, THAT WILL END UP RESULTING IN AN UNCONSTITUTIONAL TAKING OF THE SUBJECT PROPERTY, THE QUAN PROPERTY, IT WOULD RESULT IN A REGULATORY TAKING OF THE PROPERTY.

THE MEASURE X SPECIFICALLY TARGETS THE PROPERTY.

IT WILL BE CONSIDERED A SPOT ZONING OF THE SUBJECT PROPERTY.

AND TO THE EXTENT THAT THIS COUNCIL MOVED FORWARD WITH APPROVING THE ORDINANCES RELATED TO THAT MEASURE, IT WILL THEN BECOME COMPLICIT IN THAT UNCONSTITUTIONAL TAKING OF THE SUBJECT PROPERTY.

SO I JUST WANTED TO REMIND THE COUNCIL OF THAT ISSUE.

IT WILL BE COMING TO A HEAD I IMAGINE VERY SOON, AND I APPRECIATE YOUR CAREFUL CONSIDERATION OF YOUR DUTIES TO UPHOLD THE CONSTITUTION WHEN THE TIME COMES.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, MADAM MAYOR.

THIS IS KEITH COLLINS WITH THE CITY ATTORNEY'S OFFICE.

UH, THERE IS A PROVISION OF THE BROWN ACT THAT ALLOWS THE CITY COUNCIL TO ADD AN ITEM TO THE AGENDA AFTER IT HAS BEEN POSTED.

IF THE CITY COUNCIL CAN MAKE TWO SEPARATE AND DISTINCT FINDINGS, THE FIRST IS THAT THERE IS AN NEED TO TAKE IMMEDIATE ACTION ON AN ITEM.

AND THE SECOND FINDING THAT YOU NEED TO MAKE IS THAT THE NEED CAME TO THE ATTENTION OF THE CITY AFTER THE POSTING OF THE AGENDA.

UH, THERE IS A, UH, AN APPEAL INVOLVING THE RELEASE OF SEVERAL HUNDRED PRISONERS FROM THE ORANGE COUNTY JAIL FACILITY.

UM, AND THAT APPEAL WILL BE FILED AND HEARD, UM, RELATIVELY QUICKLY, UH, THIS WEEK WE EXPECT THE APPEAL TO BE FILED AND THE CITY HAS AN OPPORTUNITY TO JOIN OTHER CITIES IN FILING AN AMICUS BRIEF, A FRIEND OF THE COURT BRIEF URGING THE COURT TO TAKE A DIFFERENT APPROACH TO THIS PARTICULAR CASE.

SO THOSE ARE KIND OF THE FACTS THAT SURROUND THIS PARTICULAR ITEM.

AND NOW WE JUST BECAME AWARE OF THIS AFTER THE POSTING OF THE AGENDA LAST WEEK.

AND SO IF THE COUNCIL CAN MAKE THOSE TWO FINDINGS, THAT THERE'S A NEED TO TAKE IMMEDIATE ACTION AND THAT THE NEED CAME TO THE ATTENTION OF THE CITY AFTER THE POSTING OF THE AGENDA, THEN THIS ITEM CAN BE BROUGHT BEFORE YOU, AND I'LL, I'LL SPEAK MORE TO THAT AT THAT TIME.

WOULD THAT BE PUT UNDER CONSENT OR IS IT GOING TO BE A CONSIDERATION CONSIDERATION? OKAY.

UM, MADAM MAYOR, I'D LIKE TO MAKE A MOTION THAT WE, WE HAVE TO HAVE PUBLIC COMMENTS FIRST.

OH, SORRY.

THANK YOU.

UM, ARE THERE ANY PUBLIC COMMENTS FOR THIS? THERE SHOULDN'T BE NO.

UM, THIS IS THE ROLL CALL.
