Monterey Park City Council delayed Wednesday a decision regarding the proposal to require businesses to post at least one sign in a "modern Latin" alphabet. The preliminary approval of the ordinance on July 24 sparked controversy in the city and San Gabriel Valley, and the council will vote again on Oct. 2.
We asked Alhambra readers and residents how they felt about cities requiring their businesses to post signs in a "modern Latin" alphabet, or in a language that English speakers can read. Of the 55 respondents to our online poll, 46 said they felt businesses should post signs in English or a Latin alphabet while seven disagreed. Listen to and read the responses we received.
