City receives $60,000 tree planting grant from county, approves purchase of six police cars

Alhambra City Council announced Tuesday night that the city received a $60,000 grant from the Los Angeles County Regional Park & Open Space District to replace trees damaged during the windstorm earlier this year. Damaged trees in local parks, parkways, and the golf course will be removed and 137 new ones will be planted. The Council also unanimously voted to purchase six patrol cars for the Alhambra Police Department. 

The Council also addressed the incident during the previous City Council meeting when Alhambra resident Eric Sunada left the podium after Mayor Barbara Messina prohibited him from addressing Vice Mayor Steven Placido directly. The Council explained that Messina simply followed the rules that state that residents cannot relay any direct questions to any council members up for re-election during the election period.

Alhambra resident Lola Armendariz brought up the issue of low turnout at an American Legion Veterans Day event on Sunday and how events pertaining to war veterans must be announced at meetings. Councilman Yamauchi responded that recognizing veterans is very important to the council and that the low turnout was due mainly to the scheduling conflict for church goers. Messina assured Armendariz that she is pushing for the completion of another veterans memorial once they gather more names.
