Alhambra’s City Council will vote on whether to allow the city to use $600,000 in federal funding for infrastructure improvements.

The city is accepting written public comment on the proposal until Friday, Oct. 5. and will also conduct a public hearing on the issue during the Monday, Oct. 8 City Council meeting, according to a city notice. The funds could be used for street and improvements, handicap ramps, the removal of architectural barriers that make handicap access difficult and public facility improvements.

The money comes from the federal Community Development Block Grant program and requires an amendment to the city’s 2018-2019 CDBG Action plan.

Residents can submit written public comment to City Manager’s Office, 111 S. First St., Alhambra, CA 91801 or publicly comment during Monday’s City Council meeting at 7 p.m.
