Vehicles to be Washed Less Often; Is 'Monrovia' Sign Too Small? Water Usage Cut; Etc.




In his weekly report ( http://goo.gl/8QsqWU ), City Manager Oliver Chi reports ...

~ As part of its water conservation effort, the city will wash its vehicles less frequently.

~ Initial feedback on the "Monrovia" sign that was installed on the south side abutment of the 210 Freeway at Myrtle Avenue is that it looks a bit small. "However," Chi writes, "as we move forward, additional artistic leaf details will soon be added to the "Monrovia" sign, as well as more landscape to finish off the area."

~ In May 2015, Monrovians reduced their water consumption by 20.25% compared with May 2013, and in June by 34.5% compared with June 2013. Also, for April, the city reduced its water usage by 29% compared to April 2013, and in May by 46% compared with May 2013.

~ Scout Angel Benitez from Boy Scout Troop 483 recently completed his Eagle Scout Project at Canyon Park, leading a team building a new fence around a native plant garden at the Nature Center.

~ Traffic clog-ups on Duarte Road between Myrtle Avenue and California Avenue have been caused by the loss of the vehicle detector during recent street paving activities. Chi said the city hopes to get that fixed in the near future.
