Manhattan Beach Mayor Paul Allen said all residents on Satchell Road have agreed to the easement that would allow the city access to their properties while making road improvements, according to unapproved draft city council meeting minutes from Tuesday, Feb. 5.
Council member Barb Hanson-Wannebo was absent from that meeting.
Letters requesting easements went out to property owners as part of the ongoing Goldenstein and Satchell roads project. The letter stated the city would pay all city attorney fees regarding the easements.
The Shetkas on Goldenstein Road have agreed along with the property owners on Satchell Road, but Allen said the city has not heard back from two other owners on Goldenstein Road yet.
If all property owners agree to the easement, the city will be able to move forward with construction plans to improve both roads.
In other business Feb. 5, the council:
• Accepted Kevin Larson's letter of interest to join the Planning and Zoning Commission when a seat becomes available. Currently there are no open positions.
• Approved the creation of two sets of file labels for parcels. One set includes property owner names while the other includes the parcel numbers. A separate, alphabetized spreadsheet will be created to assist in organization.
• Determined that Luke Hanson will shovel the sidewalk at no additional charge to the city.
