Homeless Services Reports More Homeless in Monrovia Than Were Actually Counted


In his latest report (https://goo.gl/aOqX7O) City Manager Oliver Chi reports:

~ Is the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA) inflating the number of Monrovia's homeless? According to City Manager Oliver Chi, "LAHSA seems to deviate from the actual results that the City notated from the 2019 Point-In-Time Homeless Count." He said the Monrovia count found 52 instances of homelessness, but the Authority is reporting 62. "It appears," Chi writes, "that LAHSA went back and utilized some type of revised methodology and / or multiplier to produce their final estimate of unsheltered persons in Monrovia."

~ A new and improved Summer Teen Scene program kicks off this Friday, June 28, from 5:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. in Library Park. Leaders from youth groups, such as Fire and Police Explorers, Monrovia Area Partnership Youth Leadership Program, Youth Commission, and the Teen Advisory Board, will host a free meal and share how teens can get involved in the community. There will also be a Cell Phone Photo Scavenger Hunt, an initiative to discover public art in Old Town, art projects, and live youth band and performance groups.

~ LA County Public Works completed improvements to the intersection of Huntington and Mayflower on Sunday, June 23. Monrovia Public Works and Engineering staff will keep an eye on conditions at the intersection.

~  Monrovia Association of Fine Arts' Summer Art Walks along the sidewalks of Old Town will give a glimpse of the local arts scene. The first one will be Saturday, June 29, and they will continue on the last Saturday of July (27th) and August (24th).

Monrovia Has Clean Water

Here is the city's report on the quality of the drinking water in Monrovia: https://is.gd/Uk4IdC

It appears all monitored substances are well below permitted levels. The only thing that appears at all noteworthy - though the data on it is old, from 2011 - is dioxane, found in industrial solvents (Wikipedia: https://is.gd/bwmhvz), which averaged .24 parts per billion (ppb), well below the 1 ppb that requires notification, however the range from the samples went from undetectable to 1.2 ppb, somewhat exceeding the level requiring notification. But again, that number is from 2011.

The report explains that the state Department of Health Services "allows us to monitor for certain contaminants less than once per year because the concentrations of these contaminants are not expected to vary significantly from year to year. Some of the data, though representative of the water quality, are more than one year old."

You May Be Paying an Extra $1.50 for Trash Pick-Up; Fixing Huntington and Mayflower; Etc.

In his latest report (https://goo.gl/aOqX7O) City Manager Oliver Chi reports:

~ The city and county have changes planned for the messy, clogged intersection at Huntington and Mayflower. Work on a new striping layout, signage, traffic signal timing, preventing left turns into the shopping center on the southeast corner, and allowing an additional northbound lane will take place on Sunday, June 23 from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m.

~  Chi said he heard that a CafĂ© de Olla will likely move into the vacant storefront just north of Grey & Cash in Old Town. Looks like a hip Mexican style place: http://www.cafedeollarestaurant.com.

~ Athens is requesting a 4.77% increase for solid waste services effective July 1. This means an extra $1.50 a month (from $31.53 to $33.03) for a typical residential customer enrolled in the 90-gallon trash/recycling barrel program. Chi writes that this "takes into account both CPI and California State minimum wage cost increases," and are allowed in the city's contract with Athens.

~ The Summer 2019 Monrovia Today catalog of events is now out. It's on line here: https://is.gd/tb4GUL

~ the city has stopped street sweeping and parking enforcement in the road-construction areas in north Monrovia beginning this Monday, June 17 until construction is over. This is the area north of and including Hillcrest Boulevard, Grand Avenue, and Greystone Avenue.
However, do obey construction parking signs.

~ Each year in early June Monrovia Fire & Rescue spends the day transforming the pediatric clinic at City of Home into a place where young children can have fun, laugh, and take their minds off of their illness, allowing them to focus on being kids for the day.
