City Manager Steve McClary provided his running list of the Ojai City Council's priorities to the Council during a special meeting Feb. 6. There are currently 43 items on the Council's list of pending tasks, including the formulation of a cultural resources policy, a mid-year budget update, a mandatory dog and cat sterilization ordinance and continued discussion of the drought.

Other items on the pending task list include “affordable housing,” “tiny houses,” “broadband enhancement” and “pesticide-free Ojai.”
