Residents were expected to weigh in on the proposed Annual 2019-2020 Housing Action Plan, and the item has been pushed back to the meeting for July 23rd. City Manager Artie Fields must be out of town as the majority of council items are signed by Assistant City Manager David Esparza on his behalf.
Other items on the otherwise light agenda include awarding Habitat for Humanity a $500,000 contract for the Minor Home Rehabilitation Program. The program allows homeowners to apply for up to $15,000 towards home repairs. Residents must be low-income to qualify.
An Inglewood based company was bypassed in favor of a company based in Santa Fe Springs, to provide pressure washing services at the city’s nearly 272 bus stops. Will this council EVER mandate that the city works to ensure more Inglewood based companies get contracts as they ensure Inglewood residents get hired for construction jobs?
The city is expected to approve an annual ordinance related to secured property tax rates. In order to collect revenue to support Fire/Police retirement services, the original ordinance passed in 1983, must now be approved annual. The goal is to preserve the estimated $8 million dollars in revenue from property taxes.
Finally, Councilman George Dotson will host the inaugural District 1 City of Champions 5K Run/Walk to be held at Centinela Park on September 28th from 7am – 12noon.
