The Claremont City Council meets tonight, beginning with a closed session meeting at 5:15pm. The closed session involves negotiations for the 2.66-acre property on Base Line Rd. 1000 feet east of Towne Ave. One other item on the closed session agenda is litigation involving L.A. County and the county's Flood Control District.
The regular session begins at 6:30pm. The agenda seems fairly light. A few items stand out:
- Ginger Elliot, the executive director for Claremont Heritage, will be honored at the beginning of the meeting for her work with Heritage.
- The City has awarded a three-year contract for custodial services in city-owned buildings and park restrooms to Great Cleaning Services, Inc., an Irvine-based company.
- In accordance with California Redevelopment Law, Claremont has updated its five-year Redevelopment Implementation Plan for 2010-2014. This one is sure to upset some people, especially who feel that redevelopment ought to be retired in Claremont. Others who might not like this are those opposed to the City's use of eminent domain to take property from one private party in order to give it over for another private party's use.
