UPDATE: Council Passes “In God We Trust”

Correction: KHTS has received clarification regarding last night’s City Council decision to add the words “In God We Trust” to the City logo.  The correction is in bold.

The idea was brought up by Councilman Bob Kellar last month, who noted that 52 other communities in California have done just that.

“I look at this as a small measure…getting back to what made this country great, ‘In God We Trust,” Councilman Kellar said.

Out of the 52 communities who have added the saying to their logo, only one of them allowed the voters to decide the matter, with the rest making it official by a Council vote.

The one city that did vote on the matter, Villa Park, passed it by 77%.

Kellar originally proposed to bring the matter before the voters on the April 13th, 2010 election, however Mayor Frank Ferry wanted to pass the motion at the City Council level instead, which it did by unanimous vote (Laurene Weste provided the motion). The language would gradually be added to City Council chambers and other areas as the items are replaced or refurbished, so as to minimize the cost of replacement. 

City Attorney Carl Newton reviewed the matter and advised the Council that placing the language on our logo is constitutional.

A handful of speakers supported the matter, along with 15 written comments.
