Councilwoman Paula Lantz announced Monday night that Council members John Nolte, Ginna Escobar and Debra Martin will serve on the committee. Councilwoman Cristina Carrizosa will serve as an alternate.
Regency Outdoor Advertising would like to extend an agreement the company and the city entered into in 1993 involving 10 billboards along the 10, 60 and 57 freeways, according to a city staff report.
Regency would like to extend the agreement for 20 years and pay the city $1 million up front or extend it for 12 years and pay the city $600,000, the staff report said.
Some council members, such as Nolte and Martin, expressed concerns about the length of the proposed extension and the amount of money Regency is proposing to pay the city.
Martin said the company is a profitable company that could pay the city a larger sum.
In addition to Regency another company, Bulletin Displays, would also like an opportunity to have billboards in parts of the city.
