MANAGEMENT SERVICES

CITY HALL OPEN HOUSE

On July 17th Temple City’s City Hall opened its doors for an informational event geared toward introducing the community to the inner workings of local government. Attendees had the opportunity to tour the building and mingle with representatives from all four City departments: Administrative Services, Management Services, Community Development, and Parks and Recreation.

The goal was is to foster a dialogue between City staffers and residents that’s both educational and informal. Councilmembers and departmental representatives answered questions from residents about issues of interest, listen to those residents’ concerns, and share news about current and upcoming City projects.

TEMPLE CITY PHOTO CONTEST

Submissions are due July 31 for Temple City’s first annual photo contest, which invites residents to take their best shot at capturing the community’s spirit. Winners in three age categories can win as much as $100 in prize money, in addition to public photo exhibition opportunities.

This month building permit valuation was only $812,871.

In June, the Building staff issued permits for one new, single-family house and an accessory dwelling unit (ADUs). Activity at the public counter has decreased. The planning staff took in six applications for new houses, three ADUs, a flag lot subdivision, and a three-unit condominium development. The Community Preservation inspectors opened 133 cases in June, 20 more than last year. So far, only 13 percent of the cases opened were referrals from the public.
