Parks and recreation panel resumes in Pico Rivera

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan ClarksonCouncilman Gregory Salcido said he did not see a reason to establish the commissions, nor did he see a need to regulate closely how they are selected. “We don’t need those commissions,” Salcido said. “This is Mayberry, not downtown Los Angeles.” Salcido did not immediately select an appointee, saying he wanted more time to convince someone to join the commission. He will have 30 days or two City Council meetings to present someone to the council for approval. The commission will replace the Arts and Culture Committee, which will disband, and will include projects for seniors and sporting leagues as well as arts-related activities. Some members of the committee will continue their involvement by working on the commission. Mayor Ron Beilke said he appointed former committee member Lorraine DeLaO to the commission because of her experience with arts and culture. DeLaO, 61, works for county Department of Psychiatry and said she found a deeper appreciation of the arts through her work on the committee. “I think learning about the sports and bringing in the arts and the music, it’s going to go well,” DeLaO said. Councilman Bob Archuleta chose Vicky Galarza for the commission. A longtime member of the Montebello Police Department, Galarza has been active in volunteering through Boy Scouts. “When I interviewed her, she impressed me with her knowledge of security, her knowledge of the kids and her knowledge with seniors,” Archuleta. Councilwoman Gracie Gallegos-Smith appointed Gil Guerena, 61, former president of the Pico Boys baseball league, in the hopes that he will help level the playing field for youths in the city, literally. “We need to leverage all of the leagues and make sure they all have appropriate space,” Gallegos-Smith said. Guerena said he has coached baseball and football through the Pico Boys and Pico Dons. Peter Ramirez, appointed by David Armenta, also has history with Pico Dons football, as a coach and helper for 30 years. Ramirez, 59, is a retiree from a career building cars for General Motors. Ramirez, who lives across the street from Rivera Park and has coached baseball there for 30 years, said he hopes to help with his intimate knowledge of the parks in the city. “Whatever I can do to help the park get better, I’ll do my best,” Ramirez said. “I’ll tell them what I think they need because I walk the park every day.” The new commissioners said that while they are political appointees, they expect to work together without difficulty. “I think this commission has got to be focused and have some kind of unification,” DeLaO said. “We’re all leaders in the community with different focuses, but now we’re going to have to come together as one.” airan.scruby@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3029 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

PICO RIVERA – City officials say they expect close collaboration with City Hall from appointees to the newly established Parks and Recreation Commission. The commission was founded in September by a City Council decision along with a Sister City Commission, but council members appointed their commissioners last week. The council also creating guidelines for naming appointees. “By having commissions, we can have assigned city staff to the commission,” City Manager Chuck Fuentes said. “Staff will basically take the minutes, post the meeting notices, that kind of thing.” The Parks and Recreation Commission was disbanded more than a decade ago, but is being re-established to create better compliance with government procedure and professionalism in city business, Fuentes said. last_img read more
