The El Centro City Council will continue a public hearing to discuss the possibility of locating an alternative school on East Ross Avenue.
The use and storage of potentially hazardous materials, the lack of on-site parking, truck traffic, the lack of sidewalks and local aesthetics kept the City Council from taking any action on the matter at its meeting two weeks ago.
The City Council meets at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at 1275 Main St. There will be a joint workshop at 5:30 between the council and the city library's board of trustees to discuss the library's role and the board's plans for the coming year.
The alternative school location was previously rejected by the El Centro Planning Commission. The Imperial County Office of Education is appealing the commission's decision to the City Council. The new school would replace one in the same area.
