I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

City Council encourages residents to fill vacant municipal positions

City Council encouraged residents Monday to apply for vacant municipal board and commission positions. The Council appointed and renewed commissioners to various Alhambra leadership positions, but spots on the Planning, Youth, Parks and Recreation, and Transportation commissions and Board of Library Trustees remain empty. There are four new commissioners and 63 renewed members, according to Monday’s agenda, leaving 10 vacancies to be filled.

Each councilmember is instructed by city code to appoint one-to-two commissioners to each board. Councilwoman Barbara Messina said she hopes to read applications for positions that she is charged with filling. “I have a vacancy on the Library Board of Trustees that I’m interested in getting applications for,” said Messina. 

Commissioners serve one-year terms but are restricted to eight consecutive terms. Youth Commissioners can only participate four years in a row.

Mayor Gary Yamauchi encouraged interested residents to apply by filling out an application at City Hall. He also expressed gratitude to current commissioners, saying, “For those people who are commissioners right now and have been for many years, I want to thank you very much for giving your time to the city. It’s very important that these commissions be in place and we appreciate the work that you do.”

City Council also presented commendations to 18 Alhambra crossing guards. Part of Alhambra’s commendation reads that crossing guards are “instrumental in protecting and safeguarding children as they safely cross busy intersections on their way to and from school.” In Monterey Park, a crossing guard was struck and killed by a motorist on Jan. 27.

City Council usually meets every second and fourth Monday of the month on the second floor of City Hall: 111 S. First St., Alhambra, Calif., 91801. The next meeting will be on April 13  at 5:30 p.m.
