This week the Santa Ana City Council will face a slew of issues, including the Downtown Inc. special tax district, the fixed guideway project, an application for a gay nightclub and renaming a future Latino cultural plaza at French and Fourth streets.

In Costa Mesa, council members are scheduled to approve an evaluation process for bid proposals for city services. Council members will also consider outsourcing jail services. And Councilwoman Wendy Leece is asking council members to take a pay cut.

Here are the details of city council meeting this week.
