Polishing the Jewels
By Laura Sanchez
While councilors lit no bonfires to mark their Nov. 5 Guy Fawkes Day meeting, they protected the crown jewels and added another one to the treasure chest.
Councilors approved using state funds of almost $1.4 million to buy and renovate the property on Lomas housing the National Institute of Flamenco. The city will lease the building to the Institute. They also approved a new five-year contract for operation of the ¡explora! Science Center and Children's Museum.
Councilor Martin Heinrich's bill designating one city block in the South San Pedro neighborhood as a Metropolitan Redevelopment Area passed unanimously, clearing the way for an influx of homes and businesses.
Councilor Ken Sanchez postponed his bill requiring rowdy party throwers to pay the cops for showing up. Bills to lower red-light camera fines and reauthorize money for animal services were introduced.
