If you live in Redondo Beach, it might cost you a little more to get a dog license. The city staff has recommended that dog license fees be increased 50% to generate an additional $22,000 for the city. Licenses for spayed and neutered dogs would increase from $10 to $15 and for other dogs from $20 to $30. Cats are not required to have licenses. Also, the city staff is recommending that animal control services be turned over to the SPCA in Hawthorne to save $37,000 a year.

With an eye toward reviving business on its newly built pier, the Redondo Beach City Council approved $19,200 to host a Fourth of July celebration this year, which will include a fireworks show and live music, officials said. Independence Day festivities were called off by the city indefinitely in the 1970s. "There were problems with people throwing sparklers and a lot of drunks," said Jim Hall, executive director of the Redondo Beach Pier Association.

For the city of Redondo Beach, it appears that time is money, but not that much money. The Redondo Beach City Council recently decided that the city was charging the public too much for copies of police and fire reports. Report-seekers were being charged not only for the time city employees spent retrieving and copying reports, but also for the time spent writing them. That meant a copy of an arrest or police incident report could cost as much as $65.

The renovation of Seaside Lagoon in Redondo Beach could start early next year. The City Council this week approved preliminary landscaping plans for the popular saltwater park in King Harbor Marina. Sue Armstrong, director of recreation and community services, said Thursday that bids to repair and upgrade the park could go out in December and construction could begin in January. The park could be reopened next summer.

Residents in Redondo Beach might soon shop with a Visa or MasterCard touting the city seal. The city treasurer's office is looking into the possibility of offering a credit card that would give the city a percentage of card purchases, said Treasurer Ernie O'Dell. Revenue generated from the credit cards would go into a general city fund. "It will work like the mileage plus cards or General Motors credit card," O'Dell said. "A percentage of what's spent will kick back."

The cost of taking care of your doggy in Redondo Beach just went up. The City Council voted Tuesday night to double dog license fees, but decided not to turn the city's animal control services over to the SPCA in Hawthorne. Contracting with the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals would have saved the city $37,000 a year. Increased dog license fees will generate $21,000. Licenses for spayed and neutered dogs went from $10 to $20 and for other dogs from $20 to $40.

Nearly two years after two storms and a fire reduced the Redondo Beach pier to a battered stump, a judge ruled Wednesday that the city must rebuild the once-venerable landmark. Torrance Superior Court Judge Abraham Gorenfeld, to the delight of the shell-jewelry vendors and seaside restaurateurs whose businesses once lined the pier, held that reconstruction--which could cost up to $4.6 million--is required by the pier lease. "I'm elated!"
