Read the Tanya Mannes story on SignOnSanDiego: Chamber to be repaid for Visitors Center work
The City Council voted 3-2 on Monday, with Councilman Jerome Stocks and Councilwoman Teresa Barth dissenting, to pay the chamber what was owed.
Stocks dissented because he didn't think a subcommittee was needed. He also said the chamber should stop relying on city funding and that it should be an independent business advocacy group.
Barth said she voted no because she wanted the subcommittee to investigate the claims of wrongdoing in the financial review. “It bothers me a lot that we're just going to try to sweep this under the rug,” she said.
Another bad vote from the people's mayor, Maggie Houlihan.
Why can't the Visitor's Center be moved into the spectacular and popular downtown Encinitas library?
It's good to be a lawyer in this town, everybody is always suing each other.
