I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

There will be a presentation on the city of Alhambra’s strategic plan at the Alhambra City Council’s Monday, Aug. 27 meeting at 7 p.m.

The strategic plan outlines the city’s priorities for improvement and were last reviewed on April 20, 2018. These priorities include streamlining Alhambra’s permit process, amend zoning code parking requirements, revitalizing East Main Street, pursuing grant funding for open space and upgrading the Alhambra Fire Department’s station alert system.

You can read the city’s entire strategic plan in the staff report below.

The City Council will also conduct a public hearing on the Alhambra Police Department receiving funds from the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant, administered by the Department of Justice. The City Council will also consider an amended contract for Alhambra Police Chief Timothy Vu regarding salary, medical insurance, educational incentive bonus, uniform allowance, the city’s reduction in CalPERS contributions and increasing the length of severance pay.

The contract indicates that Vu will receive a base annual salary of $215,656.56.

There will also be a presentation on request for proposals to find a new person to manage the Alhambra Golf Course and on a Los Angeles County’s transfer of the Shorb Clinic property back to the city.

The City Council will present commendations for the Alhambra Little League All-Star Baseball Team, for former planning commissioner Ross Maza and for Venti’s Barber Shop.

The consent agenda includes heating and air condition maintenance for City Hall, the library and police department, waterproofing upgrades to the library and a notice of completion on the Cypress, Essexfells, Vega and Florentina sewer rehabilitation project.
