Emergency Repair to Prevent Water System Failure; Homelessness In Park; 4th of July; Etc.

From City Manager Oliver Chi's weekly report ( ):

~ The city is doing emergency repairs to prevent a water "system failure." A pump at the 510 South Mountain Avenue facility hasn't been working since 2005, and now another pump is threatening to go out. This water-booster station supplies the "Cloverleaf Pressure Zone," which sounds like a stretch of north Monrovia near Cloverleaf.

~ Monrovia Police Chief Hunt is reconvening the Homelessness and Park Conduct Committee to review the effectiveness of our current strategies, and discuss potential adjustments.

~ The 4th of July Concert and Fireworks Show will begin at 7 p.m. with the band, Person to Person, in Library Park. Then at 9 p.m., a free 20 minute fireworks show. You may reserve a space no larger than 10 x 10 feet, which must be supervised at all times.

~ City Treasurer and Monrovia's Historian Steve Baker lost his mother last Friday, May 29, 2015. She lived to be 101 years old. Comment: Sorry to hear that, Steve.

~ Two drinking fountains in Old Town are being fixed. The Wishing Well Drinking Fountain (I think that's the one in Library Park) was totally inoperable, while the drinking fountain between Chang Thai Bistro and Pinkberry was leaking.

  1. In response to the City Manager's report concerning the increase of homeless people living in RV's and parking on city street overnight, it seems to me that a parking permit program would easily address this.
    Pasadena, Arcadia, Sierra Madre, and Duarte all have some sort of permit program and do not seem to have this issue.
