RIPON – Coming soon: Family Movie Night.

Elected leaders will discuss the return of the summer event at tonight’s Ripon City Council meeting.

This will take place during the 7 p.m. open session in the Council Chambers at Ripon City Hall, 259 N. Wilma Ave.

Since 2010, the city has made possible the free PG-rated family movies held at the Mistlin Sports Park amphitheater. Those attending can bring a blanket or their low-lying lawn chairs.

Concessions are also available thanks in part to the non-profit organizations.

Other agenda items include:

• Council members will weigh in their options about attending the League of California Cities Annual Conference in San Diego scheduled Sept. 5 through 7. Needed is one to serve as a voting delegate and the other as the alternate voting delegate at the Sept. 7 business session.

• They’ll look at the first reading at the ordinance amending the “Landscaping and Irrigation” code that confines safety restrictions to the intersection sight distance. This would call for any plant material located within the safe sight distance triangle to be pruned to provide greater visibility for motorists and pedestrians, according to the American Association on State Highway and Transportation Officials’ “Policy on Geometric Design of Highways and Streets.”

• Council could OK the first reading on the ordinance that amends the contract between the Board of Association California Public Employees’ Retirement System and the City of Ripon’s safety employees.
