Council Meets Tonight, Special Committee Tomorrow Night, On Fire Matters

Written by on February 11, 2019

Malibu’s two new city council members have rescheduled their first meeting of the city council’s Disaster Response and Recovery Ad Hoc Committee.

The first meeting was rained out.

The meeting will now be held tomorrow night …. Tuesday … at 6:30 at Malibu City Hall.

This small working group is designed to listen to residents share their stories, ideas and insights about the Woolsey Fire disaster … and come up with policies to help Malibu be better prepared for future disasters.

 The committee is made up of councilmembers Karen Farrer and Mikke Pierson.

They also invite stories, ideas, insights and questions to be sent via email to them …

we have the email address posted at the KBUU Newswire.

The Ad Hoc Committee’s email address is: 


Malibu’s city council meets tonight … to further refine city rules to help fire victims.

The city council is being asked to change the definition of temporary structures …. to allow double wide trailers to be used.

The current limit of 900 square feet would be increased to 12-hundred feet.

The change would also allow the use of two small units … to allow for a tenant to gain temporary housing on a fire-destroyed lot.

The council is also going to address temporary powrr poles … and the request by some residnets to add large water storage tanks for firefighting purposes as they seek to rebuild their properties.

The city council will also consider adding a gate at the parking lot at Point Dume State PArk … up on the bluff.

The gate would prevent people from entering the parking there after sunset … which is when the park closes.

The meeting is tonight at 6:30 at Malibu City Hall.
