The City Council is ready to begin work on the former farmer labor camp by creating an agreement with Anderson Integrated Services for the labor camp asbestos testing project.
The council also authorized the city manager to sign and award an agreement with Rudnick Fence Co. in an amount not to exceed $25,000 for the labor camp fencing project. The city is also making plans to utilize a building at the camp for an expanded animal shelter.
The council swore in new council member Vince Martinez. It also nominated new Mayor Alex Garcia and Gilberto Reyna as Mayor Pro Tem. Both made a statement to the council thanking everyone for their support and voting for them.
Garcia and Reyna were also voted in as chairman and vice-chairman respectfully for the Successor Agency and the Public Finance Authority. Garcia was selected as the representative to the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District and Reyna was selected as an alternate.
Former council member Danny Espitia expressed his appreciation for the voters voting for him for the past 20 years.
A capital improvement project to purchase more lights for the city was discussed and City Manager Daniel Ortiz-Hernandez asked the council members what type of lights they were looking for. He described several different lights the city currently has and indicated they serve different purposes. This item will be brought back to the council for further discussion.
