ROSEMEAD – The Rosemead City Council has proclaimed Aug. 6 as “National Night Out,” which is a night for the community to gather – in Rosemead it will be at Zapopan Park at 8301 Garvey Avenue from 6 to 9 p.m. – and come together to make the city safe from crime.
The proclamation was made at the council meeting on Tuesday night.
The council also heard a presentation from Consolidated Disposal – a trash-collecting company – on that organization’s overview of services.
Next, the council voted to cancel the Aug. 27 meeting and to send City Manager Jeff Allred to a conference in Boston in September.
Then the council also heard a presentation on and whether to approve an underground utility planning and made a prioritization policy to help guide future undergrounding projects in the city.
Finally, the council decided to form a beautification committee to facilitate a citizens-based, community grassroots effort to organize, promote and participate in programs and volunteer service projects designed to beautify Rosemead.
