Whats going on this week in Rialto? Well its pretty busy because its back to business here in the city and its also the begining of some great things. Read on below and see what is on tap.
Tonight is the Pride Platoon documentary Rialto Rising will be playing on KVCR at 6:30pm
Coffee With The Cheif
Coffee with the Cheif returns for its first meeting this Tuesday January 13th at Coco’s in Rialto.
Come out to hear what is new for the city of rialto in regards to our public safety and come with your questions for Rialto’s Top Cop and his admin staff.
Rialto is lucky to have a Cheif like Tony Farrar that finds connecting with the community of Rialto a priority for him and his top staff. Lets show Cheif Farrar that we appreciate his dedication by coming out Tuesday Morning and having Coffee with him.
Rialto City Council Meeting
Yes its the first city council meeting of 2015 and its going to be a roller coaster ride. Newly elected councilmember Ed Scott appears to have drawn a line in the sand with the Security Guard Company the city uses becuase he asked to remove their contract extension from the December meeting agenda and it has been continued to this meeting. This is Tab 10.
Also in the Misc section of the Agenda were sending all but one eleceted offical to Las Vegas for a ICSC Convention to the tune of 5,221.25. We need to ask ourselves why are we sending everyone and if were sending everyone why isnt the money watch dog isn’t going? Do we really need to spend over five thousand Dollars to have Rialto represented at the conference? Also the spending requests leave room for increasing the total purchase order becuase of unseen costs.
In addition to all that they will be electing a new Mayor Pro Tem and rumors are that Joe Baca Jr. will be seeking the spot to prepare for a run for Mayor in 2016. New board and commision seats will also be assigned. This will be a close one to watch because this will effect how much gets hidden in the special commision meetings and this is also where Community Development Block Grant Funds are allocated.
New Stores Opening Up
On Wednesday January 14th Jersey Mikes will be opening up in spot where the old Fire Station used to be. Jersey Mikes marketing manager Reef Colman is keep the grand opening details inside a secret circle but we do know that they are opening Wednesday and they choose only four Rialto Unified Schools to participate in a fundraising opportunity. We will keep you posted if any info comes up.
As I was doing my research on the Jersey Mikes information it was odd to see Sgt Lindsay giving Dine 909 blogger Jon Plessel a heads up on new stores coming to Rialto.
Wonder what you have to do to get a little love and the 411? Its ok we don’t hate Jon were just jealous.
