The Monrovia City Council will hold a study session on "Neighborhood Compatibility" this Tuesday, June 4, at 5 p.m.

- Consider allowing increased speeds on:
~ Madison Avenue between Foothill Boulevard and Colorado Boulevard (from 25 mph to 30 mph)
~ Violet Avenue between Foothill Boulevard and Colorado Boulevard (from 25 mph to 30 mph)

and consider posting speed signs on:

~ Hacienda Drive between Lemon Avenue and Royal Oaks Drive (25 mph)
~ Monterey Avenue between Colorado Boulevard and Huntington Drive (30 mph)
~ Shamrock Avenue between Evergreen Avenue and railroad tracks (25 mph)


- Consider adopting a 2016-17 fiscal year budget. Projected revenue: $39.5 million, up from $37.95 million in 2015-16. Projected expenditures: $39.46 million, up from $37.85 million in 2015-16. Details:

  1. Brad, should the projected revenue be $39.4 million?

    1. Yes, it should. Well, actually it should be $39.5 million. But clearly not $439.5 million. My mistake. I have corrected it.

  2. Increasing the speed limit on Madison is such a bizarre thing to be considering. How does something like that get proposed? With the school on one side and apartments lining the other, it's one of the tightest and most dangerous streets in the city.
