Monrovia Water/Sewer Rate Meetings; Dirt Removal; Retiring and Promotion; Sidewalk; Steps; Last Concert


From City Manager Oliver Chi's weekly report ( http://goo.gl/kJKPmE ):

~ If you want to have your say regarding proposed water and sewer fee increases (to repair roads, sidewalks, curbs, gutters, and water and sewer systems), here are two meetings: Saturday, Sept. 19, from 10-11:30 a.m. at the Library Community Room, and Tuesday, Sept. 29, from 7-8:30 p.m. in the City Council Chambers (415 S. Ivy Avenue).

~ City crews have been removing dirt and debris from below the Madison Fire burn area along Highland Place and Crescent Drive, specifically from a property on Highland Place just south of Scenic Drive, and from a property on Crescent Drive between Madison Avenue and Avocado Place. Both basins were in danger of overflowing onto city streets if we have a big rain.

~ Community Development Director, Steve Sizemore, is retiring at the end of the year and Craig Jimenez, the current Planning Manager, will be the next Community Development Director.

~ The sidewalk at 135 Foothill Boulevard that collapsed around a month ago due to a large underground air conditioning vault is going to be fixed. During the week of Sept. 7 the hole will be filled and the a/c system moved.

~ Thanks to Eagle Scout candidate Austin Che from Troop 349 for his Eagle Scout project in Canyon Park. He directed his troop in creating new steps to an educational site

~ Last free summer concert Series this Sunday, Sept.r 6. 7 p.m. in Library Park, featuring Top 40 and disco music from, "Basix." At the Rotary Club Bandshell in Library Park. Bring a lawn chair or blanket.

~ If you want to be involved in city government, there are vacancies on the City's Historic Preservation Commission and the Monrovia Old Town Advisory Board. Details: http://goo.gl/CvdX6v
