Yuck.

Adding a fourth floor was such a short sighted move. The city has since moved into several adjacent buildings. The City Council chambers now reside in the former frost bank building:

It's a neat building on it's own, but where it really wins points is in the contrast of the sacred/secular with San Fernando Cathedral(to the left). I can't find a picture of both side by side, but this picture gives you the general idea of the placement of the two structures:
