"Party at Your Peril" Coming Back to City Council Tuesday; 7-12 Council Debate to Air on FRSC 10 AM Sunday

The City Council's public testimony and debate on the draconian penalty law increasing fines and costs for "unruly assemblies" will play on Free Radio Santa Cruz 10 AM Sunday July 24th. Interested listeners can tune at 96.3 FM or www.freakradio.org or call in at 831-427-3772.
On Tuesday July 26th during its evening session (sometime after 7:30 PM) the City Council printed agenda says Council will be taking up further discussion of the "Unruly Assemblies" law.

The law passed a second and final reading at the June 28th City Council meeting 5-2 and is scheduled to go into effect on July 28th.

The agenda item description for item #33 on Tuesday night as as follows:

"33. Loud and Unruly Gathering Ordinance Policy and Administrative Guidelines. (CM197)
That the City Council review policy and administrative guidelines pertaining to the implementation of the Loud and Unruly Gathering Ordinance and provide direction as appropriate."

There is no material available on the internet or in the library involving any specifics about these "guidelines", though more information may be made available prior to City Council meeting.

Rotkin suggested during the second reading that the guidelines would not have the force of law, but were Council "suggestions". The police, he noted, would draw up their own general orders on the matter.

Item #33 is also the last item on a packed agenda which may mean it will not be heard until very late.

City Council can be contacted at 420-5020 to urge it to pass an urgency resolution suspending the law until such time as it can have fairer and more deliberate consideration.

Such action, of course, requires urgency findings (not impossible) and a five Council members voting in favor (highly unlikely).

Some past radio discussion of this law is archived at www.huffsantacruz.org (unfortunately not cataloged yet).

Oops

Thanks for the dial correction, air one. 96.3 has indeed yielded to 101.1 FM. These are the perils of posting after midnight.
