On the agenda: Alhambra considers becoming "host town" for 2015 Special Olympics

Alhambra City Council will vote Monday whether or not to become a "Host Town" for the 2015 Special Olympics. The summer games will take place July 25-Aug. 2 in Los Angeles, and up to 100 Southern California cities will host delegates, provide practice and rest space, and organize “social and cultural activities that are unique to the Host City” for three days preceding the Special Olympics, according to the  City Council agenda.

More than 7,000 Special Olympics athletes from 170 nations will compete in next year's games, which include aquatics, gymnastics, track and field, basketball, and soccer, according to the Special Olympics website. The most recent Special Olympics World Summer Games took place in 2011 in Athens, Greece.

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.
