Wednesday morning report, Aug. 24 (CORRECTION)

Five things to know this Wednesday morning: 

1.) Reporter Alex Dominguez covered yesterday's City Council meeting, and he reports that no action was taken regarding fireworks in Downey (legal or otherwise). 

Staff is expected to come back with a more comprehensive strategy. 


2.) Dominguez also reported that Mayor Pro Tem Fernando Vasquez announced (citing the public works) that street repairs at Lakewood and Telegraph, and also Firestone, is on target to be completed by middle of next week. 

I'm still skeptical but we'll see!


3.) Warren High School has announced plans for a Military Appreciation Night on Friday, Sept. 9. 

Starting at 7 p.m., military personnel and veterans are invited onto the football field before the Bears face Buena Park for public recognition. Vets and military also receive discounted admission to the game. 

"As Sept. 11 approaches, we want to share our appreciation and gratitude with those who give selflessly of themselves to protect our country," said Warren High principal Laura Rivas. "We would like to encourage any military member in our community to come to the Warren football game and take part in this celebration while enjoying the game with their family and friends." 


4.) If you haven't already, please read my story on campaign fundraising in the City Council election.

CORRECTION: I initially wrote that "the next round of financial disclosures disclosures isn't due until Jan. 31, 2017, so this is the best information we'll have until after the election." I was incorrect. 

City clerk Adria Jimenez clarifies: 

"For candidates running for City Council, the due dates are September 29, October 27, 2016, and January 31, 2017."

Sorry for the confusion.


5.) The Galleon Apartments on Stewart & Gray Road are for sale at an asking price of $2.475 million. 

Located at 7944 Stewart & Gray Road, the complex includes 10 units, each two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Each unit is approximately 1,000 square feet.
