Alhambra , CA United States

At 7 p.m., the Alhambra City Council will conduct a public hearing about 2018-2019 Community Development Block Grant and HOME action plans before the City Council approves it. Alhambra received an increase in both CDBG and HOME funding from the federal government for housing rehabilitation, code enforcement, the first-time homebuyers’ program and other initiatives.

The City Council will also hear a presentation on increasing costs to users of Alhambra’s sewer system for a public hearing to be conducted on July 24, 2018 and will have a second reading of an ordinance to rename two city departments.

The consent agenda includes accepting $1,000 from the San Gabriel Valley Municipal Water District to conduct an Eco Fair on May 20 and approving around $100,000 to fund a Rose Parade float and to contract with the Alhambra Chamber of Commerce for promotional services. The City Council is also expected to award a contract to conduct a USDA Summer Food Service Program and to approve a bid of more than $90,000 to build a fitness court at Alhambra Park.

The Alhambra all-star basketball team will also receive a commendation, while Mayor Stephen Sham will officially proclaim May as Older Americans Month and Calfresh Awareness Month.
