The Manhattan Beach City Council set the final general revenue tax levy for 2019 at $70,000 during its meeting Tuesday, Dec. 4, at city hall, according to unapproved draft meeting minutes.

According to the minutes, Clerk-Treasurer Amy Wannebo said she would support the final levy amount as long as the council would take time to look at what the city's needs are, including improving roads. Council member Janis Allen said that was the plan, and Mayor Paul Allen agreed.

There was no further conversation and the motion to approve the levy passed unanimously.

In other business, the council:

• Agreed that Mayor Allen would meet with Stonemark Land Surveying, Inc. to review the necessary legal documents regarding the Goldenstein and Satchell Roads project and take them to the attorney, who will in turn contact relevant property owners regarding easement of their properties.

• Scheduled the regular January meeting for Tuesday, Jan. 8, because the newly elected council member, Betty Worts, can't take office until Monday, Jan. 7.
