In a unanimous vote, the City Council voted to approve a construction contract to Lee Construction Company for a permanent storm drain connection to the Rubio Wash Channel from the Public Works facility. The contract comes to a total of $75,652.50, which includes a construction contingency.
The City Council voted 5-0 to approve an agreement between the San Gabriel Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Agency.
San Gabriel currently has two detectives assigned to its Special Enforcement Team, which are responsible for investigating crimes associated with narcotics, vice, criminal street gangs and criminal intelligence. Due to budgetary and personnel constraints, the Special Enforcement Team regularly encounters investigations that are too resource intensive to investigate without the assistance of neighboring agencies.
By partnering with the LA high intensity drug trafficking area task force, the SGPD will be able to access federal resources, including additional investigators, state of the art equipment, technical support and logistical support. Participation in the task force will also allow the SGPD to be eligible for personnel reimbursement and resource acquisition through asset forfeiture funds.
In addition, the City Council voted to approve the following items:
- The purchase of new playground equipment for Vincent Lugo Park
- A request from the Mission Playhouse and Community Services to accept donations and grants
- Athens Services’ request for a rate adjustment
