For those like me who missed it, read interim Coastline city editor Alisha Gomez 's account on the front page.

Eiler’s Inn is no more, but a new boutique hotel will be opening in its place. The hotel at 741 S. Coast Hwy was built by J. R. Leonhardt in 1946 and was the Clift Hotel until 1983. The 12-room bed and breakfast became Eiler’s Inn in 1983. The name was in honor of the famous Laguna Beach greeter, Eiler Larsen. Business partners Brent Eneix and Daniel Sussman purchased the property in 2007. Eiler’s officially shut its doors around Christmas.

The council reviewed progress on the sale of city-owned lots to finance the city maintenance yard relocation to ACT V, awarded a contract for an environmental impact report for the Village Entrance and approved signage for the interim Village Entrance parking lot. A color scheme for the buildings that will not be relocated was given a thumbs-up, but funding depends on the passage of Measure A -- the half-cent tax increase on the Dec. 13 ballot.
