Officially Out With the Old, And In With the "New" at Tonight's City Council Organizational Ceremony

Published : Monday, May 6, 2019 | 4:44 AM

The Pasadena City Council will recognize a new Vice Mayor when it meets Monday night at City Hall.

An Organizational Meeting, which occurs on the first Monday in May every year, will first officially adjourn the sitting City Council, mark the end of the second term of the current Vice Mayor, John Kennedy, and then see the swearing in of a “new” City Council, which will be comprised of all current Members (since no recent election has changed the Council’s composition) and of a new Vice Mayor.

Councilmember Tyron Hampton was previously elected as the new Vice Mayor during the Council’s December 10, 2018 meeting.

Hampton’s term will run through December 7, 2020.

The Councilmember was elected to the City Council in 2015 and currently serves on the Economic Development & Technology, Municipal Services, and Public Safety Committees.

Prior to serving on City Council, Hampton was elected to the Pasadena Unified School District Board of Directors in 2013.

Hampton is expected to address the Council after the ceremony.

Following that, the Monday meeting begins with public comments on matters not on the agenda before moving into the consent calendar, setting the Pasadena Water and Power rate hike public hearing date, continuing a public hearing into the Fiscal 2020 City budget, and  a second vote on changing the Municipal code to allow for facility use fee waivers for civic and patriotic organization charging admission or collecting donations.

The Special Organizational Meeting will be held at the Council Chamber, Room S249 at City Hall, starting at 6:30 p.m. at 100 North Garfield Avenue, Pasadena.
