On the agenda: Julio Fuentes monument; free summer lunches

Alhambra City Council will present Monday evening the preliminary design concept for a monument dedicated to former Alhambra City Manager Julio Fuentes. The monument will be located in the Gateway Garden on the corner of Fremont Avenue and Valley Boulevard, near the Gateway Arch. Fuentes served as city manager for more than 20 years and now is city manager of Santa Clara.

Council will also discuss the city’s participation in the Summer Food Service Program, an initiative from the United States Department of Agriculture to help provide nutritious meals during summer months. If approved, free lunches and snacks will be served at Alhambra Park, Almansor Park, Story Park, and Granada Park from June 3 to Aug. 9, 2013. 

The scheduled presentation of the Alhambra Bicycle Master Plan was postponed so council members and the city manager can review the proposal, according to Assistant to the City Manager Chris Paulson. The presentation has not yet been rescheduled.

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.

  1. I’m 50/50 on the Julio Fuentes statue.

    It’s probably justified because if you understand how city government infrastructure works, Julio was essentially the CEO of Alhambra for 20 years. He was exponentially more important than the City Council and just about any other single entity in the system. In suburban cities like Alhambra, the city manager means EVERYTHING.

    So yeah, I guess it’s OK. But I’d really rather see the money put into a video series that explains local government to citizens. Then they wouldn’t need to treated like little kids who don’t know anything.

  2. A monument to Fuentes?!? Now there is a waste of city money if I have ever heard it. What’s next? A monument to Messina?

    1. preachhhhh, this is ridiculous.

    2. Let’s wait till after Fuentes is dead. Only time will tell if his contributions merit this kind of recognition. Besides, monuments to the living are kind of creepy.

    3. As for the Messina monument, I believe that was supposed to be a secret. 😉
