COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT DEPARTMENT

KEEP MOSQUITOS UNDER CONTROL, MAINTAIN YOUR RAIN BARRELS

As the region faced severe drought conditions, many people placed barrels under their rain gutters to capture rainwater. Capturing this water helped reduce the use of potable, imported water for irrigation. Unfortunately, when these rain barrels are not installed correctly or maintained they can become a breeding ground for mosquitos. This website from the San Gabriel Valley Mosquito and Vector Control District provides best practices for installing and maintaining rain barrels. The website includes tips such as:

Place two layers of fine mesh tightly over all openings.

Be sure to remove standing water from decorative covers.

Dry out the rain barrel between storms.

BUSINESS LICENSE DEFERRAL AND AMNESTY PROGRAM

The City Council has again acted to assist the City’s business community. In line with its COVID-19 recovery plan, the City Council on November 17 approved a Business License Deferral and Amnesty Program. The Program will defer annual and new business license fees three months from January 1, 2021 to March 1, 2021. Penalties will be assessed starting on April 1. Businesses should keep an eye out for their business license renewal notice, which will go out the first week of December. The amnesty program will waive penalties fees for businesses operating without a license. Businesses wishing to make use of the amnesty program must apply for a business license and pay the business license fees on or before February 28. Businesses can contact Sandra Scott at (626) 656-7316 for more information.
