City to propose regulations on donation bins

City Council will hold a public hearing on Monday to review a proposal to regulate donation bins in Alhambra. The regulations will ensure that the boxes “remain clean, safe” and will “not create hazards to pedestrians and to vehicular traffic,” according to the meeting agenda. 
 
Alhambra had banned the use of donation bins in the past, but Planet Aid, a non-profit that owns 20,000 clothing donation bins across the nation, sued the city and cited a Michigan court ruling that says the bans are a violation of 1st- and 14th-Amendment rights to free speech and equal protection.
 
The donation bins have been a center of controversy. Some residents say that the bins are poorly managed and become overfilled with unwanted goods that include mattresses and broken television sets.
 
The public is invited to tonight’s hearing to voice their opinion on the issue. The hearing will be part of the council’s regular meeting at 7pm at City Hall.
 
Council will also review a statement on the SR-710 environmental impact report. Written by Lee Dolley, Special Counsel to the city, the statement will reflect the city’s stance on the report.
 
City Council usually meets every second and fourth Monday of the month at 5:30 and 7 p.m. at City Hall. Read the complete agenda below. You can also download the document or make it larger using the controls on the bottom.
