Residents will have a chance to get to know the Huntington Beach City Council candidates and get informed on Measure O at two upcoming forums.
The Huntington Beach League of Women Voters will be moderating a forum on Measure O at 7 p.m. Oct. 5 in Council Chambers at City Hall, 2000 Main St. They are also sponsoring, with the American Assn. of University Women, a candidates forum at 6:30 p.m. in the Huntington Beach Central Library theater, 7111 Talbert Ave.
Measure O would remove debt service and other costs from inclusion in the 15% of the general fund parceled out to infrastructure improvement, repairs and maintenance every year. Former Mayor Shirley Dettloff and Councilman Don Hansen will be arguing in favor of the measure against former Mayor Debbie Cook and Councilman Keith Bohr.
