CITY COUNCIL MEETINGS RESUME TO IN-PERSON BEGINNING SEPTEMBER 14, 2021

PAID

In a casual atmosphere at City Hall, on August 3, community members met with Captain Reyes and deputies from the Sheriff’s Temple Station for coffee for the first in-person event since the COVID closures. The gathering allowed citizens and law enforcement officials to get to know each other and discuss any issues and concerns in their neighborhoods. The majority of contacts law enforcement has with the public happen during emergencies, or emotional situations. Those situations are not always the most effective times for relationship building with the community, and some community members may feel that officers are unapproachable on the street. Coffee with the Captain breaks down barriers and allows for a relaxed, one-on-one interaction.

These events serve as a catalyst for building strong relationships of mutual trust between law enforcement officers and community members and help to maintain public safety and effective policing.

As the pandemic recedes, the South El Monte Sheriff’s community police unit has resumed to in-person events, bringing the community and public safety officials together again with its recent Coffee with the Captain and National Night Out events. All COVID-19 safety guidelines were implemented at both events.

The City’s public safety and community policing initiative continued with an in-person National Night Out at Mary Van Dyke Park in partnership with the Sheriff’s Temple Station on August 5. This special event is designed to bring residents together, promote police and community partnerships and allow community members to meet and interact with public safety officials in a friendly and fun setting. The event was full of interactive booths and freebies from various public safety and community agencies, treats, prizes, games, and concluded with a family movie.

SOUTH EL MONTE NEWS • SEPTEMBER 2021

PUBLIC HEARING SEPTEMBER 14 • 6:00 PM PUBLIC HEARING MEETING

REGARDING THE CITY’S RESIDENTIAL AND Tuesday, September 14, 2021 at 6 :00 p.m.COMMERCIAL SOLID WASTE REFUSE COLLECTION CHARGES NEW RATES. Regarding the City’s Residential and Commercial Solid Waste RefuseAND Collection Charges and New Rates

The City Council of the City of South El Monte will hold a public hearing on Tuesday, September 14, 2021 at 6:00 p.m. or thereafter to consider new rates for the residential refuse collection services and disposal fees charged to residential for solid waste collection and disposal services within the City. The proposed rate structure is compelled by the State of California’s passage of new solid waste collection mandates under Senate Bill 1383 (Lara) and wide-ranging regulations implementing the Bill in Title 14 of the California Code of Regulations (collectively, “SB 1383”) at City Hall located at 1415 Santa Anita Avenue, South El Monte, California.

More specifically, the State of California has recently, through SB 1383, imposed the most comprehensive and significant set of State mandates relating to solid waste, recycling and organics imposed upon local jurisdictions in at least the last 30 years. The State’s SB 1383 mandates range from dictating where, and in what containers, recyclable and solid waste materials may be placed, down to the color of such containers. SB 1383 requires a comprehensive host of new waste hauler and City requirements with respect to reporting to the State (State oversight), enforcement mandates, food recovery programs, and costly educational outreach, amongst other mandates. Complying with these new State mandates imposes substantial costs on both the City and the waste hauler, thus compelling the proposed rate schedule.

NO CHANGE TO COMMERICIAL AND MULTIFAMILY RATES ARE PROPOSED. The commercial and multifamily rates were previously updated on June 25, 2019 and will remain unchanged.

Visit’s the City website at cityofsouthelmonte.org for more information.

PROPOSED SOLID WASTE RESIDENTIAL AND COMMERCIAL RATES(1) (2)

(1) Rate increases that exceed the maximum rates above will require a new majority protest hearing process pursuant to California Proposition 218, Cal. Const. Article XIII D, Section 6(a). Otherwise, annual adjustments shall be based on the actual CPI-U, as defined by the CPI-U Index cited in this Notice. Thus, actual rates may be lower than those identified above if the actual CPI-U escalation is lower than the maximums above. (2) Not all rates identified above constitute “property-related fees” subject to the majority protest process under Proposition 218. The City has nonetheless provided a full schedule of all fees in furtherance of public transparency.

CALIFORNIA STATE SUPERINTENDENT TONY THURMOND VISITS VALLE LINDO SCHOOL DISTRICT IN SOUTH EL MONTE ON THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL State Superintendent Tony Thurmond visited Valle Lindo School District in South El Monte on Wednesday, August 18, 2021. Superintendent Thurmond welcomed students and parents to campuses at Dean L. Shively Middle School and New Temple Elementary School, where students returned to full-time in-person instruction. The schools have been recognized for strong implementation of COVID-19 prevention and mitigation strategies. Superintendent Thurmond was greeted by Valle Lindo School District Student Ambassadors, South El Monte City Officials, and the Valle Lindo School District Board of Education. Thurmond’s visit also showcased the community’s commitment to student safety, inclusion, and mental wellness. Both schools were recognized by the California Department of Education for providing comprehensive districtwide mental health and wellness services. Superintendent Thurmond dedicated time to listen to empowered student ambassadors who encourage others to reach out, seek help, and connect with others in the school and local community. This was part of a series of on-campus visits that the State Superintendent is making to showcase students engaged in safe, in-person learning supported by a multi-layered, whole-child approach that includes implementing safety measures and addressing learning gaps while attending to student mental health and well-being and the needs of families.

SCHOOLS ARE IN SESSION! PLEASE, DRIVE CAREFULLY!
