Temple City : Reinforcement Extensions

February 22, 1990

Property owners who face deadlines for reinforcing masonry buildings to make them meet earthquake safety standards may appeal to the city for extensions, the City Council decided Tuesday.

To help owners with the cost of adding reinforcements, the city also will explore ways of offering financial help, such as low-interest loans.

Councilman Tom Breazeal, who dissented in the 4-1 vote, said appeals would be approved arbitrarily unless guidelines are set. He said extensions should be granted only if the property has been vacant, if major changes have been made or if there has been damage.
