Christmas trees, condos, and chain restaurants

The West Covina City Council is meeting tonight, and among the topics of discussion are:

1. Securing an exclusive negotiating agreement with Kendrew Development, which has plans to turn the AAA pad into a nationally recognized restaurant. The pad is located at the northeast corner of Azusa Avenue and Giambi Lane intersection, which is the entrance to the Sportsplex projet. The purchasing price is $1.1 million, or $40 sq. feet.

2. Councilman Steve Herfert is proposing changing the time frame that Christmas trees can be sold. Currently, trees can only be sold in the month of December. Herfert wants to extend it to begin the day after Thanksgiving.

3. Council will adopt an ordinance that will hold parents financially responsible for their kids who tag. It will become effective Jan. 15.

4. The frequency of meetings of commissions, such as senior citizens commission, will be cut in half.

5. Looks like the city is gearing up for the hiring of a human resources manager and deputy city manager.

6. There will be a public hearing on a proposed 33 unit condo project at 4101-4111 S. Nogales St. The property currently has a single family home and an office building.
