Cypress Council to hold pubic hearing to set fees for the use of new Lexington Park facilities

According to Cypress City Manager Pete Grant, a power pole has held up the opening of that City’s newest park at the southeast corner of Cerritos Avenue and Lexington/Denni. Southern California Edison is now working to reposition the pole, and power should be available for park facilities within a week or so. Northbound traffic on Lexington has been diverted to Corporate Center Drive and Calle Lee in order to reach Cerritos. That detour should go away once the pole has been repositioned.

In anticipation of future rentals of the park facilities, the Cypress City Council will hold a public hearing on Monday, February 14, to consider a schedule of fees.

According to the staff report:
