Newport Beach city officials were preparing to reveal a groundbreaking pact with Orange County that would give the city more control over a number of issues, but they pulled back late this week.
The agreement was slated for Tuesday's City Council meeting, but city and county leaders need more time to look it over, Newport Beach City Manager Homer Bludau said Friday. The pact has been in the works for three years.
"It still needs to be reviewed by some people at the county," he said. "We need all five supervisors to be there."
