Vondies hall has had to be evacuated due to a serious threat of an explosive device.
The Vondy Curtis hall is the meeting ground for the mayor of Pasadena, a Democrat who is running for re-election.
The meeting place is on the corner of North and N streets, and there are about 300 people at the meeting.
It is the only meeting in the city’s history that has been evacuated due a serious emergency.
The council was briefed by Pasadena Fire Department and Pasadena Police Department officials and the Pasadena Police Bomb Squad on the threat and evacuation.
The council will meet again at 2 p.m. on Wednesday to discuss the situation.
The mayor is expected to deliver a message on his agenda and a briefing on what to do next.
Pasadena Police Chief Michael Pascale said the threat was credible and it was important to get everyone together for the meeting and the discussion.
Pascale, who has been in charge of the city for five years, said he believes that the meeting was safe.
“I can tell you that I was very confident that it was safe,” Pascales said.
“It was a safe meeting.”
The council has not been evacuated since the first one on July 17, 2014, when Mayor Tom Tait held a meeting in his office.
That was a safety meeting in a building that was being evacuated.
“We are always prepared for anything,” Tait said at the time.
“We will never be in a position where we need to evacuate people or close streets for safety.”
This time, there are no evacuations.
The city has put up fences and barricades around the meeting site, Pascaling said.
Mayor Paul Togoa said that there was a “low threat” and the city has “a plan to do the right thing.”
Pascales has said that he expects the threat to drop again when the council returns for its next meeting on Wednesday.
