At 5:30, the Alhambra City Council will open a public hearing about how to use funds from the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant. The police department is considering the funds for recruitment and equipment.

Other Californian cities like Los Angeles and San Francisco have filed lawsuits against the federal government to block the new requirement that cities who receive the grant give immigration officials 48 hours notice before an undocumented detainee is released.

The City Council will also hear a presentations on a grant that will reduce deaths related to DUIs and on the City’s water shortage plans. The consent agenda involves approving salaries for various city workers and management. Councilmembers will also present commendations to Dr. Laurel Bear and the Tzu Chi Foundation for their food pantry event at the Alhambra Unified School District, and a certificate of service to park foreman Joel Gomez.

Finally, the City Council will also rotate the councilmembers serving as mayor and vice mayor. David Mejia will step down as mayor, and Stephen Sham will fill this role. Jeff Maloney will become vice mayor.
