Cities Join Monrovia's Anti Crime Coalition; Replacement Reservoir; Vet Video; Bike Plan


In his weekly report (https://goo.gl/aOqX7O), City Manager Oliver Chi reports:

~ Monrovia's Taking Back Our Community coalition is taking off. Council members Becky Shevlin and Larry Spicer, along with city staff, attended the League of California Cities Annual Conference to promote the coalition with a video (https://goo.gl/NfWYn1). The coalition seeks to modify elements of Assembly Bill 109, Proposition 47, and Proposition 57, which have resulted in public safety problems. Such problems include: Defining rape, battery, assault with a deadly weapon, and solicitation to commit murder as "non-violent." Chi says response to the coalition has "been overwhelming and positive.  We currently have approximately 25 cities that have formally joined the group, with another 15 cities in various stages of joining our efforts."

~ Construction on a replacement Oakglade Reservoir should begin in late December or early January 2018. The current 900,000 gallon reservoir, at 733 Oakglade Drive, way up Canyon Boulevard, was built in the late 1800s and was one of the original water reservoirs for Monrovia, but it has developed excessive leaks and cracks. The new one should hold  1.5 million gallons.

~  The Veterans Resource Center at the Monrovia Public Library has submitted its second interview to the Library of Congress's Veterans History Project, which collects first-hand accounts of vet who served in conflicts. This video (https://goo.gl/w9oyqQ) features Joseph Callahan, a Vietnam Veteran, who served in the US Navy.

~  Monrovia, and other local cities, are developing Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plans to identify opportunities to improve conditions for walking and bicycling. Share your thoughts on this online survey: https://goo.gl/Ss83nm

~ Consider repealing restrictions on where sex offenders may live in the City.

Lunch at Chipotle


Lunch at Chipotle, on Huntington next to Chili's. Though I'm not a vegetarian I got the sofritas (tofu) burrito ($6.70) with guacamole ($1.99 extra) and an iced tea for $1.90. Despite being vegetarian it was yummy (I took a couple bites so you can see).  And all the packaging has entertaining nonsense written on it: "With great tofu comes great responsibility."

Legislature to Require Community Colleges to Grant Degrees to Qualified Students, Notify Students, Keep Records


Senate Bill 478, authored by State Senator Anthony  Portantino, who represents Monrovia, has passed the State Legislature and is heading to the governor's desk.

According to the Legislative Council, "This bill would require the governing board of each community college district to direct the appropriate officials at their respective campuses to (1) identify those students who have completed an associate degree for transfer, (2) notify those students of their completion of the degree requirements, (3) automatically award the student with the degree, and (4) add the student to an identification system at the end of each academic year that the Office of the Chancellor of the California Community Colleges shall maintain and that can be accessed electronically by the California State University and the University of California." https://goo.gl/9WKZW4

Comment: I certainly approve of this, but as I've commented before, it is a really annoying to find that it takes an act of the legislature, signed by the governor, to get government agencies to perform what should be their core functions.
