Alhambra , CA United States

At their 7 p.m. meeting, Alhambra’s City Council will consider the first reading of an ordinance allowing dogs on leash at city parks. The leashes are to be no longer than six feet and dogs won’t be allowed in any park lake, pool or athletic field or court. The ordinance prohibits owners from not immediately disposing of any waste created by the dog.

Alhambra’s neighboring cities like South Pasadena, Temple City and San Gabriel all allow dogs on leashes in their parks. This ordinance is a response to the City’s attempt last year to build a dog park, which some City Council members thought of as too expensive.

The City Council will also recognize local organizations like Alhambra Hospital and the Alhambra Rotary Club for their donations to the Spark of Love Toy Drive during the holidays last year. The drive was able to serve more than 735 families.

There will also be a public hearing regarding an amendment to a development agreement to allow more businesses at a shopping center at 333 E Main St. to place their names on a free-standing sign. More information here.

The consent agenda includes accepting a donation from the Alhambra Public Library Foundation to implement an electronic system that will allow library members to check out books, movies and music on their electronic devices, the appropriation of additional money to Public Works to remove, trim and plant trees on parkways and to fund rebates for 200 households who want to install a home security system with Ring home security company.
