CALIPATRIA — One city councilman said he wanted the city's founders to be honored.
"It's the pioneers who should be honored," said Calipatria City Councilman Leonard Vasquez.
Vasquez and the rest of the City Council were to submit suggestions Tuesday night to rename Bonita Place and East Elder Street.
The renaming was approved because emergency medical personnel were having problems locating the two streets.
Bonita Place was often mistaken for Bonita Street and East Elder Street is not connected to West Elder Street.
Council members were to submit four names each and the council would vote. Two of the names had to start with the letter B and two with the letter E, so the streets would remain in alphabetical order.
When the council members were ready to submit their names, Vasquez argued that people who helped pave roads and build the city should not be excluded because their names don't start with a B or E.
