The Alhambra City Council is likely going to reject the new bids for the lawn bowling court renovation and vote to build a dog park there instead. The vote will come at the 7:00.

Alhambra Bowls Club Vice President Sean McMorris said that the club will offer to donate money so that the renovation would fit with the City’s $200,000 budget. He said it was shameful that the City hadn’t notified them of this change.

The City Council will also vote on partnering with the Los Angeles Community Choice Energy program to lower electricity costs.

At 5:30, the Council will hear a presentation on the Ratkovich Company’s plans to develop a residential community on 20 acres of vacant land at the Alhambra. Retirement certificates will also be presented to Assistant Chief of Police Cliff Mar and service dog Abbey.

The teaser from this article mistakenly called the City’s presentation to build a dog park at the lawn bowling court a first reading of an ordinance. We regret the error.

The City Council is also having a public hearing, followed by a 30-day comment period to increase federal HOME funds for Alhambra’s Housing Rehabilitation Program.
