Alhambra , CA United States

At 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 13, the city clerk will present the Alhambra City Council with a certification verifying that an Alhambra city charter amendment changing campaign donation and election rules for local elections has obtained enough signatures to be put on the 2020 ballot for voter consideration.

The measure would impose limits on campaign contributions for local elections. It would also change voting from at-large to by-district. In other words, residents would only be able to vote for the City Council members running in their district.

The Los Angeles County Registrar notified the City of Alhambra in late October that the ballot measure had obtained enough verified signatures to be placed on the ballot.

At 7 p.m., the City Council will also consider a cost recovery fee for drafting an implementing Alhambra’s general plan update and on changes the city has had to make to the charter to comply with state legislation. The council will also hear a presentation on Alhambra’s 2018-2019 strategic plan and consider a second reading of an ordinance on city contracts.

The consent agenda includes accepting a Department of Homeland Security grant to respond to terrorist attacks and a request for proposal to upgrade the elevators at the Alhambra Police Department.
