Chamber news, happenings and clarifications


In a recent news release, the Culver City Chamber of Commerce took exception to the City Council’s decision to start funding, with $1.2 million from the city’s Gen- eral Fund, the city’s rental assistance voucher program. It should be clarified that Council members Andy Weissman and Jim Clarke voted for emergency housing funding for two other programs for St. Joseph Center and Upward Bound House. That motion received a 5-0 vote. Councilmembers Weissman and Clarke, however, were the dis- senting votes in the motion to compound the city’s existing problem by making the dangerous decision to spend one-time General Fund Reserve monies on the on-going rental assistance program. That motion passed 3-2.
