Will Prop B lead to lawsuits? Don’t be fooled

Recently, a neighbor delivered an Anti-Prop B flyer to my door. As I read the flyer, the second bullet point really took me by surprise. It said, “…Prop B exposes our city to significant liability for expensive lawsuits because it contains vague and ambiguous language.” Opponents are making such misleading statements to sow fear in residents’ minds, hoping that those who aren’t familiar with Prop B will worry that a “Yes” vote will cost the city money.  Let’s review what the initiative says:

Will the lawsuits attack provision #1 “No More Than two Events per Weekend”?   Or #2 “Nominal Fees”?   How about #3 “ABC rules shall govern service of beer and wine”?   Or #4 “Noise control shall be per the Municipal Code”?  Or #5 “Occupancy shall be per the Municipal Code (Fire Marshal limits)”?   Can #6 “Clean-up by 10 p.m.” draw legal fire?

Lastly, will there be charges lodged against #7, “violations may result in immediate closure, revocation of the special permit, fines or other relevant action?”  Those are the only seven provisions of Prop B.  The point is that if there are any legal challenges, they won’t be against Prop B; they will either be with provisions in the Municipal Code or the enabling legislation, the Rental Policy 23.  And both of these are solely under the control of Council. Thus opponents are using a red herring to scare the voters. Don’t be fooled; Prop B is simple, straightforward and deserves your vote.
