The Newport Beach City Council will resume a public hearing Tuesday night, and could possibly vote, on a Balboa Peninsula business owner's application to increase occupancy limits at his establishment.
Malarky's Irish Pub
first came before the City Council on April 26 with about 50 supporters and some opponents in attendance.
The council supported patio expansion plans by the pub's owner, Mario Marovic, but a condition was delayed that would limit the Newport Boulevard bar's late-night occupancy by preventing new patrons from entering the business after midnight.
At the 3 p.m. study session before the regular meeting, the council will again review the city's fiscal year 2011-12 budget. The Municipal Operations Department director and heads of other non-public safety departments will present their budget cuts. Their proposals are in addition to the $3.4 million presented by the police and fire chiefs at the May 10 study session.
