Coffee with the Council continues Saturday at Stell Coffee & Tea


The City Council continues their popular Coffee with the Council Saturday, June 10, from 9 to 10:30 a.m. at Stell Coffee & Tea Company, 1580 Barton Road, Suite A. Council members Pat Gilbreath and Eddie Tejeda will be in attendance.

Coffee With the Council was begun in February 2011 as part of the City’s continuing efforts to increase interaction with residents and promote transparency in City affairs.

The informal meetings are scheduled quarterly from 9 to 10:30 a.m. as a way for residents to ask questions or share concerns outside the formal setting of a City Council meeting. The remaining Coffee with the Council meetings will be held at the following locations:

Sept. 9 – Cuca’s Mexican Food, 1752 E. Lugonia Ave.;

Dec. 9 – Olive Avenue Market, 530 W. Olive Ave

In addition, in April Council members began a series of Walking with the Council meetings held along several of the City’s walking trails. The schedule for the remaining Walking with the Council is below:

July 8 – Orange Blossom Trail, beginning at the railroad trestle on the Orange Blossom Trail near Center/Texas Street and Redlands Boulevard;

Oct. 14 – Santa Ana River Trail (future alignment), starting at Cave Street and Riverview Drive

Council members rotate attendance for both Coffee with the Council and Walking with the Council, with no more than two members at each meeting.
