On the agenda: Free summer lunch program, proposed ban on feeding wild animals in city parks

Alhambra City Council will vote Monday whether or not to approve the city's participation in a free lunch program this summer. If approved, the U.S. Department of Agriculture program will distribute free lunch and snacks at Alhambra, Almansor, Granada, and Story parks from June 2 to August 8. It will also provide games, sports, and crafts.

The free summer lunch program was established to provide nutritious hot and cold meals to children during the summer months, specifically in areas where at least 50 percent of children are eligible for free or reduced-price school lunches.

Council members will also vote on an ordinance prohibiting the public from feeding wild animals in city parks and public grounds in Alhambra. City Attorney Joseph Montes said during a February City Council meeting that less wild animals in Alhambra migrate when they are provided with an unnatural source of food. The parks have become overcrowded with animals, which in turn damage property and pose a health risk to patrons, he said.

"There are issues with members of the public feeding the turtles, feral cats, and migrating birds that don't want to migrate because of food being given to them that isn't necessarily good for their health and is also creating health conditions in the parks themselves," Montes said at the February 24 meeting.

City Council meets every second and fourth Monday of the month at 5:30 and 7 p.m. at Alhambra City Hall, 111 S. First St. Read the complete agenda below. You can also download the document or make it larger using the controls on the bottom.
