Whittier Mayor Joe Vinatieri recently reported that at the city council meeting on Tuesday night, the council agreed to create two new ad hoc committees. The first committee will focus on the rehabilitation and upgrade of Fire Station 17 on Hadley Street. The second will deal with state legislation relating to Sacramento housing mandates and legislation that could potentially make the city less safe and limit the power of police officers. The council also discussed creating an ad hoc committee will focus on education and communication between the city and its school districts. Mayor Vinatieri emphasized the importance of these committees in prioritizing what is important for the community.
The Whittier 360 News Network is here to keep the community informed on the progress of these committees and their efforts to improve the city of Whittier.
