CUT OF <br />r 1 VERSI l>1: <br />City Council Memorandum <br />City �fAl rts & renovation <br />TO: HONORABLE MAYOR AND CITY COUNCIL DATE: December 13, 2011 <br />FROM: COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT DEPARTMENT ITEM NO: 36 <br />WARDS: ALL <br />SUBJECT: PROPOSED AMENDMENT TO THE RIVERSIDE MUNICIPAL CODE RELATING TO <br />PROPERTY MAINTENANCE AND THE ABATEMENT OF PUBLIC NUISANCES <br />FOR THE PURPOSE OF UPDATING THE SECTIONS TO REFLECT THE <br />CHANGES TO TITLE 19 <br />ISSUE <br />The issue for City Council consideration is whether to amend the Riverside Municipal Code relating <br />to property maintenance and the abatement of public nuisances for the purpose of updating <br />Sections 6.14.020 and 6.15.020 to reflect changes to Title 19. <br />RECOMMENDATION <br />That the City Council introduce and adopt the attached Ordinance amending Riverside Municipal <br />Code Sections 6.14.020 and 6.15.020 to reference the 2007 Title 19. <br />BACKGROUND <br />Title 19 of the Riverside Municipal Code (RMC) was completely revised and amended in its entirety <br />in 2007. Sections 6.14.020 and 6.15.020 of the RMC references the sections of Title 19 that were in <br />effect prior to the 2007 amendment. In order to be consistent with the new Title 19, the proposed <br />amendments to Sections 6.14.020 and 6.15.020 will update those sections to generically refer to <br />Title 19. There are no substantive changes to Sections 6.14.020 or 6.15.020; all that is changing is <br />the reference to the previous code sections. <br />Because this proposed amendment is a clerical change for code consistency, it is statutorily exempt <br />from the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) as a ministerial project (CEQA Guideline <br />15268). Further, this amendment is also exempt from the CEQA pursuant to Guideline sections <br />15060(c)(2), 15060(c)(3) and 15061(b)(3). <br />FISCAL IMPACT <br />There is no fiscal impact associated with this report. <br />36 -1 <br />
