About Town in Manhattan Beach: Week of June 6
City Council meeting canceled
Tuesday’s City Council meeting was canceled that same afternoon “due to the lack of posting” of the meeting agenda. State law requires the city to post the agenda 72 priors to the meeting in five places: two boards outside City Hall, the library, Joslyn Center and Manhattan Heights Community Center. City Manager Dave Carmany said council and city staff are in the process of rescheduling the meeting.
Following Wednesday’s showcase of Mira Costa’s jazz bands, the Mira Costa concert band, symphonic band and wind ensemble with special guests from the Philharmonic Orchestra will close out the two-day concert series Friday at 7 p.m. at the Mira Costa auditorium. Tickets are $10 at the door, free for children and students with ID.

This Saturday from noon to 5 p.m., Dietz Bros Music is offering to restring your guitar in exchange for a donation of two canned foods. Donations will go to St. Margaret’s Center, an Inglewood-based organization serving low-income and homeless families. For more info, call 310-379-6799. 240 S. Sepulveda Blvd. Manhattan Beach.

Continuing a tradition started by his predecessors, Mayor David Lesser will meet, walk and talk with residents on the first Monday of every month. Residents are invited to meet in front of Peet’s Coffee & Tea at 328 Manhattan Beach Blvd. at 8 a.m. for an hour-long walk along The Strand and engage in discussions of city issues with the mayor and other local residents.
