Monrovia Groundwater at 'Critically Low Level'; Christmas Tree Lighting; Construction Company Repentant; Etc.
In his weekly report ( https://goo.gl/zTUiOE ), City Manager Oliver Chi reported that ...
~ "Groundwater levels in the Main San Gabriel Basin are at such a critically low level that no matter how much rain we receive, we will not be able to restore the Basin to a safe level without purchasing imported water." The water district will have to import water to increase groundwater levels. This means the water district will "consider implementing a special assessment."
~ Christmas tree lighting on Thursday, Dec. 1, followed by the Holiday Parade, which will have an historic theme. The Monrovia Historic Preservation Group will be the grand marshall.
~ The company that did work on the house at 209 W. Scenic Ave. without proper permits has apologized, was fined $2,000, and will bring its plans to the Historic Preservation Commission for review.
~ There will be a town-hall style meeting at 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 27 at the Monrovia Community Center to discuss ballot propositions. Topics: Proposition 57 (early parole / early criminal release), 62 (death penalty repeal), 64 (recreational marijuana use legalization), & 66 (death penalty process changes to speed up executions)
~ There will be a Native Garden Plant Sale on Nov. 12, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Library Park. Also, the Public Works Division will provide a series of waterwise gardening presentations. Questions? Call Community Services at 256-8246.
