Last night, the Anaheim City Council voted 4-1 against Mayor Tom Tait’s motion to cancel the city’s contract with the Anaheim Chamber of Commerce to administer the Anaheim Enterprise Zone.

The consensus opinion among the four “no” votes was since staff was already working with the Chamber on revising the contract’s scope in light of legislation ending the California Enterprise Zone program, which could entail the agreement evolving into an economic development partnership of the sort the Chamber has historically had with the city – then it made sense to wait for staff to come back to the council with a finished product for consideration.
