On the agenda: Banning donation bins in Alhambra

City Council members will hold a public hearing Monday during their 5:30 p.m. meeting to discuss banning donation bins in Alhambra. City staff argue that the donation bins — containers placed outside buildings to receive and store household goods or clothing — are a "blight," drain city resources, and are improperly maintained by their owners, according to the meeting agenda.

Staff will also announce that the Alhambra Police Department received a grant to increase DUI enforcement in the city. The California Office of Traffic Safety grant for $58,200 will cover six DUI and driver's license checkpoints between Oct. 1, 2013 and Sept. 30, 2014.

City Council 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.

  1. Those donation bins help a lot more people than the stupid flower pots around the city.
