Among other things, at its March 5, 7:30 p.m. meeting (agenda http://goo.gl/4ABjS ), the Monrovia City Council will consider ...
~ An agreement with Pyro Spectaculars for the production of the 2013 Fourth of July fireworks show. It'll cost $20,500. (Comment: Expensive but worth it. Beautiful show!) http://goo.gl/OxsTi
~ Whether Monrovia should forgive all the franchise fees Family Festival Productions owes the city for 2012 and waive all 2013 franchise fees for producing the Monrovia Family Festival? http://goo.gl/0Vg6p
~ How to comply with the federal government requirement that cities clean up water from rain storms. (Here's the staff report: http://goo.gl/IrCZh ). Staff is recommending that the city work with other local cities and either "watch, support, or protest the Clean Water, Clean Beaches Fee Initiative." I believe that's the tax LA County suggested a while ago, got slammed for, and took back to the drawing board.
