Complying With Storm Water Law Will *Only* Cost $140 Million; Less City Control Over Development; Etc.

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

~ The cost for Monrovia to comply with state law regarding the treatment of storm water has been reduced by 90 percent, from $1.4 billion "yes... BILLION," Chi writes. So - if my math is correct - that's $140 million. Chi said "the LA Regional Water Board unanimously and emphatically approved our region's Revised Enhanced Watershed Management Program plan!" There will be Measure W money available to help pay the bill. Comment: Ouch! I'll grant this is good news but even the good news is horrendous.

~ Recent State legislation prevents cities from preventing housing development projects, or imposing conditions that they be developed at a lower density if the developer seeks no variances or exceptions, "unless strict findings can be identified which indicate that a project would have a specific, adverse impact on public health or safety."

~  Assemblyman Chris Holden has named Christine Geltz as Monrovia's 2019 Woman of Distinction. She serves as President of the Monrovia Association of Fine Arts.

~  Friends of the Monrovia Public Library is sponsoring its annual Bookmark Contest, which is open to artists of all ages. Entry forms (here: https://goo.gl/b13bzM) can be turned into the Youth Reference Desk by Saturday, April 13, by 5 p.m.  Winners will be notified by April 27. Winning bookmarks will be printed and available for all in time for Summer reading.

~ Don't be surprised if you see a lot of phone company trucks around town this year. Southern California Edison will be repairing approximately 550 various pieces of equipment throughout town over the next 9 months.

Bowmore - Timid, But Good with a Glass of Scotch


Bowmore (A470047) is a timid 8-year-old domestic shorthair with cool black smoky coloring. When he came in to the Pasadena Humane Society as a stray in mid-December he didn’t really know what was going on. He would lay under his Kuranda bed avoiding reach with a tense body posture and tucked tail. Three months later he’s doing much better and is opening up. He isn’t the extroverted type, and may never be super confident and rambunctious. He just hasn’t let his introverted tendencies stop him from a few pets now and again. He can’t resist the Churu volunteers bring him so he’ll accept some pets in exchange for the delicious snack and if he wants more attention from them, he’ll head bump their arms and hands. It might be time for a good book, a glass of Bowmore Scotch, and some Bowmore cuddles.

The adoption fee for cats is $90. All cats are spayed or neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated before being adopted.

New adopters will receive a complimentary health-and- wellness exam from VCA Animal Hospitals, as well as a goody bag filled with information about how to care for your pet.

View photos of adoptable pets at pasadenahumane.org. Adoption hours are 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday; 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday; and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.

Pets may not be available for adoption and cannot be held for potential adopters by phone calls or email.

Magazine Sales People Not From Monrovia High

New Ladder Fire Truck for Monrovia; County Leaving GoMonrovia Program; Balanced Energy

Dark purple area will not be in GoMobnrovia service area. Just light purple.

At its next meeting (agenda: https://goo.gl/LR8etW) the Monrovia City Council will consider ...

~ Buying a KME ladder truck for the Fire Department for $1.5 million paid for using a lease-to-buy option with annual payments of $341,000 and an interest rate of 3.45%. https://goo.gl/FZCeyj

~ The GoMonrovia service area will be 31% smaller (Just a bit more than Monrovia proper now. See map) because LA County is not willing to pay the $1 million needed to service county area. Currently the County is paying $225,000 a year. https://goo.gl/hfTBZN

~ Dropping out of the County's Congestion Management Program, which the staff report says is "antiquated." https://goo.gl/Y3njKN

~ Adopting a resolution which "supports balanced energy solutions and the maintaining of local control of energy solutions." This because the State has mandated that the state rely "entirely on zero-emission energy sources for its electricity by the year 2045." The city, however, says this could cost the average family $7,200 to switch their homes to all electricity and $388 a year more in energy bills, and besides, 80% of Californians oppose prohibiting gas appliances.
