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.

Mary Swink named permanent Alhambra city manager

Alhambra City Council voted Monday to name Mary Swink permanent city manager. She will be formally introduced at the next council meeting pending contract approval, according to City Attorney Joseph Montes. Swink was named interim city manager on Feb. 4 after former City Manager Julio Fuentes took up the same position in Santa Clara.

Alhambra Firefighters Association President Arnold Furr and three members of the Alhambra Fire Department also accepted a $25,000 grant from the San Gabriel Valley Municipal Water District that will go toward the Sept. 11 memorial being constructed in front of Fire Station 71, located on First Street and Woodward Avenue. The grant will fund a water-efficient irrigation system and drought-resistant plants for the memorial.

The memorial will help Alhambra residents remember those who died during the tragic Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, according to Furr. “I have young kids. They don’t even know what 9/11 is and so this is something that will be memorialized here in the city of Alhambra and for us," he said. "That’s very exciting that the department has that and we can honor those we lost."

City Council usually meets every second and fourth Monday of the month on the second floor of the City Hall: 111 S. First St., Alhambra, Calif., 91801. The next regular meeting will be on Monday, August 26 at 5:30 pm in the Alhambra Civic Center Library.
