Alhambra City Council makes initial approval of a street rehabilitation contractor

The Alhambra City Council approved a number of measures at the Monday January 9 council meeting, including initially approving a contractor for the HUD street rehabilitation project that the council had debated extensively last year.

The council voted to award a contract worth almost $1.4 million to All American Asphalt. The council had initially allocated $3.5 million in federal funds garnered from the sale of former Alhambra Redevelopment Agency properties to that project.

In addition, the city council approved the reinstatement of a loan repayment program between the City of Alhambra and the former Alhambra Redevelopment Agency, the latter of which had borrowed money to acquire property. The council also approved a program to reduce the deficit in low and moderate income housing in the city's industrial and central business districts.

The city council also heard a presentation regarding the City of Alhambra's strategic plan. Regarding its goal to increase civic participation, the city council will start livestreaming its meetings. In terms of improving technology, the city announced the implementation of body cameras among Alhambra's police force, and informed the council that it was working with a vendor to implement a mass notification system for emergencies by February 2017.

  1. It would be nice to see this site, along with other Alhambra media sources such as our monthly newspaper cover more of the local sports scene. It’s great support for the local schools and the athletes.
