The city will spend more than $10,000 to publicize a hearing on a June election that was scheduled after a fax machine error forced cancellation of an earlier vote.
The error has also cost the city between $3,000 and $3,500 in other costs, Assistant City Manager Jeanne L. Kennedy said Tuesday.
The City Council voted earlier this month to postpone the planned February election on construction of a police station until June after learning that a jammed fax machine botched printing of a required legal notice.
The council members rescheduled a public hearing on the $8.8-million police facility for Feb. 26 and said the election could take place either June 4 or 11. They also voted to spend $10,350 to mail notices of the hearing to every property owner and registered voter in Monrovia.
