Alhambra City Council take a look at plans for a new car dealership and award a million dollar contract for the city’s transit system, when it meets tonight (6/23/14).
Nissan plans new car dealership at 801 E. Main St., the previous site of the Brewery-Allen Cadillac sales building. The proposal includes expanding or moving the existing Nissan dealership at 726 E. Main St.
Council is also expected to vote on The awarding a five-year contract to Southland Transit to operate the Alhambra Community Transit (ACT) and Alhambra Senior Ride programs. According to press reports, the city received two proposals for the programs, one from MV Transit for approximately $1.5 million and one from Southland Transit for $1.4 million. The city is not required to take the lowest bid, however, and can take other considerations into account, such as accident records, complaints and perks that the company may provide.
Southland Transit operates transit services in 11 Los Angeles County cities. MV Transit currently holds the Monterey Park city transit contract.
The council will also review a number of contracts, ranging from management of the city golf course to janitorial services. Most of the items are on the “consent calendar,” and will have very little discussion.
City Council meets every second and fourth Monday of the month at 5:30 and 7 p.m. at City Hall.
