City Council to vote on replacing picnic shelters in Almansor Park

City Council will vote Friday on several municipal additions, including soliciting bids for new picnic roofing at Almansor Park and buying new Fire Department equipment.

City staff is requesting that the Council approve the Almansor Park Picnic Shelter Replacement Project to replace previous picnic coverage that was beyond repair, states Friday’s agenda. If approved, the City could then invite contractors to submit proposals for the project. The picnic area was previously used to provide participants in the summer lunch program a shaded place to sit.

Staff is also requesting that the City purchase specialized equipment that will assist with “performing live automobile fire tactics and Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, Explosive type of incidents,” reads the agenda.

Alhambra will front the money for the Draeger System 64 Live Vehicle Fire Training Prop System from Urban Area Security Initiative, but, through a grant with the Los Angeles City Urban Area Approval Authority and the State, the money will be reimbursed to the City.

City Council usually meets every second and fourth Monday of each month. Tomorrow’s meeting was rescheduled from 5:30pm on Monday, April 13 to 9:00am on Friday April 17,  due to an anticipated lack of quorum. Read the complete agenda below.
