Flex Alert Issued For Los Angeles County Wednesday
We have an important announcement that impacts all of us: A Flex Alert is in effect today, Wednesday, August 17th, 2022, from 4:00 PM to 9:00 PM. If we all cut down our energy use while the Flex Alert is in effect, we can prevent a power outage and protect the most vulnerable members of our community, including those with certain medical conditions and the elderly, who are often harmed most by power outages.
The California Hispanic Chambers of Commerce knows we can do this together – because time and time again, our members and partners show up for our community. Remember to do your part by turning off unused lights, pre-cooling your home, and doing things like the dishes or laundry before or after the Flex Alert is in effect. Click here for more information.

Pasadena Will Not Be Issuing a Mask Mandate At This Time July 27, 2022

Pasadena Will Not Be Issuing a Mask Mandate At This Time

Pasadena Public Health Department has determined that jurisdictional COVID-19 confirmed case rates have declined for about 10 days, and local hospitalization metrics have not continued to increase during that time. With input from healthcare provider partners, the City of Pasadena health officer will not be issuing a general indoor mask mandate at this time. PPHD will continue to assess the COVID-19 situation, including strain on the healthcare system, and consider appropriate public health actions to protect our community as the situation changes. Consistent with the CDC and CA Department of Public Health, PPHD strongly recommends that people wear masks indoors when the city and LA County are in the CDC’s high community level, as is the case currently. In particular, people who are not up to date on COVID-19 vaccination, are older, or have underlying medical conditions that put them at greater risk of severe outcomes from infection should take precautions. If you live, work, or interact with individuals at greater risk, precautions such as mask-wearing and testing are also strongly recommended. Masks are still required in certain settings, including healthcare, long-term care and adult and senior care facilities, congregate shelters, on transportation, and anywhere masks are required by an organization, employer, school or event organizer. Organizations, employers, schools and event organizers are strongly encouraged to implement an indoor mask requirement at times of high COVID-19 transmission, as we are currently experiencing, to protect employees, customers, student and families, your business operation, and the broader community.

Starlink for RVs – No Waitlist

Starlink Logo

If you are receiving this email, you are currently on the waitlist for Starlink in your area. We are launching additional satellites as quickly as we can to expand network capacity in your region, and will fulfill your order as soon as possible.
In the meantime, we are now offering Starlink for RVs at any destination where Starlink provides active coverage. Currently there is no waitlist – all orders will be shipped shortly after the order is placed, including to “Waitlist” areas on the Starlink Availability Map. You can pause and un-pause service at any time.
Users can expect high speed, low latency internet in areas marked “Available”, and notably slower speeds during events with many collocated users, or during hours of peak usage in areas marked as “Waitlist”, where residential users are prioritized.  Prioritizing residential makes it possible to offer Starlink for RVs immediately with minimal impact to the most loaded portions of the network.
You can order Starlink for RVs directly from or by selecting the “+” button under “Your Starlinks” on your account page. To learn more about Starlink for RVs, please read our FAQ page.
Thank you for being a supporter of Starlink!

It is recommended that the City Council:
(1)    Find that the proposed action is exempt under the California Environmental Quality Act (“CEQA”) pursuant to State CEQA Guidelines Section 15301 (Class 1- Existing Facilities) and that there are no features that

professional or unique services with Tesla Motors, Inc. (“Tesla”), for a ten-year term with an option for two additional five-year extensions by mutual consent, for the installation and operation of the “Shopper’s Lane Charging
Depot” at the South Shopper’s Lane parking lot located at 410 Shopper’s Lane, Pasadena, CA. As described in the agenda report, the agreement authorizes the City to reimburse Tesla, or receive reimbursement from Tesla, in
an amount not-to-exceed $300,000 for shared expenditures necessary to complete the project; and
(3)    It is further recommended that the City Council grant the proposed contract an exemption from the Competitive Selection process pursuant to Pasadena Municipal Code Section 4.08.049(B) contracts for which the City’s
best interests are served.
