On the agenda: Interim City Manager Mary Swink's contract, Alhambra's Noise Ordinance, and the city's energy efficiency

Alhambra City Council will vote to approve interim City Manager Mary Swink's contract during their 5:30 p.m. meeting Monday evening. Council appointed Mary Swink to the position on Dec. 18 and she will start on Feb. 2. The contract will be for a six-month period, after which Council will evaluate Swink's performance and decide whether to make her position as city manager permanent. 

City Council will continue a public hearing regarding a revision to the Alhambra Noise Ordinance at their 7:00 p.m. meeting. The proposed revision would simplify the existing ordinance and include commercial and residential projects in downtown Alhambra, according to the council agenda.

Council will also hear a plan for reducing the city's energy consumption and greenhouse gas emission called the Energy Efficiency Chapter of the Climate Action Plan (EECAP). The council reviewed the plan in December 2012 and asked that funding sources for activities within the EECAP be included. City Council will decide whether to adopt and implement the recommended actions to meet energy efficiency targets by 2020. 

City Council meets every second and fourth Monday of the month at 7 p.m. in City Hall. Read the complete agenda below. You can also download the document or make it larger using the controls on the bottom.
