Monday morning report, Jan. 11

Five things to know this Monday morning: 

1.) The L.A. District Attorney's office is investigating whether Sergio Calderon can simultaneously serve as a Maywood councilman and president of the Water Replenishment District of Southern California. 

Calderson was elected to the WRD in 2006 to serve District 4, which includes portions of Downey. 

From the Herald-American

"Attention turned to Calderon amid reports that a second Water Replenishment District board member, Carson Mayor Albert Robles, faces possible removal by the state from the water district board.

"Deputy State Attorney General Lawrence Daniels issued a written ruling late last year that Robles is in violation of a state law concerning conflicting offices.

"Calderon, employed by the Los Angeles Unified School District, served as Maywood city clerk the past two years, but his election to the City Council could put him in conflict with the Water Replenishment District, which sets replenishment rates for both public and private water providers."


2.) Due to heavy construction at the library and theatre, the 2nd Street Civic Center entrance and a portion of the library parking lot will be closed to all traffic today from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. 

Additionally, no one will be allowed in the library from 6-9 a.m., or in the theater from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.


3.) The Downey Fire Department (which rocks at social media) posted a link to track construction progress of its two new fire engines. 


4.) Here is Warren High's latest newsletter. And Downey High's newspaper staff has a story on Fresh & Easy's closure. 


5.) And here is the contract Downey High students have to sign in order to attend winter formal.
