Stanton Ca Public Works

March 12, 1999 | Crystal Carreon, (714) 966-7835
A 4-foot-by-6-inch hole in a wall along Cerritos Avenue and Courson Drive has created a greater gap between public wants and private costs. For the third time since January, City Council members reconsidered whether general funds should be spent to close the hole. The council voted earlier in the year to allocate $1,500 from the general fund to close the opening, since the city was responsible for creating the hole to allow for a gutter to drain water from nearby homes.

Traffic on sections of Cerritos Avenue from Lexington Street to Western Avenue may be slowed down from time to time for a few months while workers install an underground storm drain, water catch basins and manholes. The construction is the second phase of a $1.1-million project to improve drainage in the area. The project is funded by a special federal grant to help prevent infrastructure damage by El Nin~o storms. The project began March 18 and is expected to end in mid-June.

The city has temporarily postponed plans to hire a youth outreach worker for $15,000 a year because of the county's financial crisis. And an outside play area for children, which was to be added to a section of the Boys and Girls Club, has also been put on hold. The same is true for the acoustical sound repairs that were to be made at the city's cultural arts center.

The City Council has unanimously approved an increase in fees for commercial waste pickup. CR&R Inc., which collects and processes the city's garbage, requested a 3.2% increase, which will raise the cost of a monthly pickup of a three-cubic-yard bin from $84.88 to $87.60. David Fahrion, vice president of CR&R, said the increase reflects the rise in insurance rates, vehicle costs and inflation over the last two years. CR&R last received an increase in November, 1990.

Residents will be paying more for trash pickup next spring, with the increased fees going toward new "state-of-the-art" recycling services, Mayor Edward L. Allen said. The city has approved a new waste-management contract with Stanton-based CR&R Inc. The new system, which begins next March, will sort out recyclable glass, plastic and newspapers out of the city's trash, thus eliminating the need for residents to sort it.

Flooding along sections of Beach Boulevard, a chronic problem in the rainy season, could become worse when the boulevard is widened to become a "super-street," Stanton city officials warned the county Transportation Commission. With final designs for the project already being prepared, City Council members last week appealed to a commissioner to reconsider the decision not to fund a more efficient drainage system.
