City Council discusses emergency preparedness and a dog park in Alhambra

Alhambra City Council discussed on Monday releasing a trust fund from Los Angeles County for the 2012-2013 fiscal year. The Alhambra Fire Department requested that $72,000 from the $642,960 fund be used to support emergency preparedness in the city, including an Emergency Operating Center that would serve as the back-up command post for the fire and police departments during an emergency. Council will approve allocation of the money at a later meeting.

City Council also reviewed possible locations for an off-leash dog park, including a strip of land close to Alhambra City Yard near Almansor Park. Alhambra Director of Community Services Cynthia Jarvis said that the criteria for picking a location depends on the distance from neighborhoods, parking availability, restroom facilities, noise, and general maintenance. The Council is yet to make a final decision on the subject.

City Council meets every second and fourth Monday of the month in the second floor of the City Hall: 111 S. First St., Alhambra, Calif., 91801. The meeting on Dec. 24 will be canceled due to the holidays.
