Uecker serving as Ripon League of Cities delegate

The League of California Cities is an association of city officials from throughout the state.

They come as delegates, working together to enhance their knowledge and skills while exchanging information and combining resources so that they may influence policy decisions that affect cities.

The 2019 annual Conference & Expo will be held Oct. 16 through Oct. 18 at the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center.

At the July 19 Ripon City Council meeting, elected leaders approved designating Councilman Dean Uecker, who expressed his interest to attend the upcoming event, as the voting member to the League of California Cities annual conference.

Mayor Leo Zuber, based on his schedule, agreed to serve as the alternative voting member.

Organizers of the three-day event are expecting an attendance of about 2,000 along with some 250 exhibitors and guest speakers and presenters.

In that same meeting elected leaders approved adding a Record Clerk position for the Ripon Police Department.

“This position was eliminated during the Recession in 2009,” Police Chief Ed Ormonde said. “The workload (of the Record Clerk position) had been spread out between multiple divisions and multiple employees.”

But with recent law changes, he noted that the duties require full attention to single position held by one employee.

Council was unanimous in voting ‘yes’ for these two agenda items.
