City Council approves San Gabriel Police satellite station at former site of Marshall School
In a unanimous vote, the City Council approved a San Gabriel Police Department satellite station at the former site of Marshall School. The satellite station will increase police engagement in the south side of the City, housing Traffic Bureau staff with full service, traffic-related capabilities.
The relocation and upgrades to the facility at Marshall Park are estimated to cost under $14,000 and will be funded by an existing account within the SGPD. We’ll have more information about this satellite station in a future article.
City Council approves fee reduction for temporary use permits for nonprofit organizations
In a unanimous vote, the City Council approved a resolution that allows casino-type charitable fundraisers to receive a fee reduction. State law allows cities to charge a processing fee based on the cost of providing the service, and the City’s latest list of service fees were adopted by the City Council last June.
For nonprofits that submit their applications 60 days or more before the event, no fee will be charged. For applications filed 59 days or fewer before the planned event, the fee will be $265. For organizations that do not fall under the non-profit designation, the temporary use permit fee will stand at $530.
City Council approves proposed list of 710 Freeway impact development projects
After the cancellation of the 710 Freeway connection project, Metro has chosen to use the allocated funds to help develop capacity-increasing projects in cities impacted by the decision. In July, Metro requested a list of potential projects from the affected cities.
The City’s proposed list of projects include traffic signal coordination, signage installation, bikeway facilities and other transit-related projects impacted by Metro’s decision.
