The San Gabriel Basin Watermaster, who manages the groundwater in the San Gabriel Basin, is asking cities here to reduce water demand by 20% percent. The initial measurement of the high Sierra snowpack is only 83% of normal with forecasts for the rest of the season also being below normal. It is looking like this may be a third year of below normal snowpack, which has left State water reservoirs at half normal levels. Please conserve water!


YARD SALES: Temple City residents wanting to conduct a yard sale MUST have a permit. They are available from the receptionist desk at City Hall, 9701 Las Tunas Drive, during normal business hours, which are Mon.-Thurs. 7:30 a.m. – 6 p.m. City Hall is closed on Fridays. The permits are FREE, and residents may only conduct one yard sale within a six-month period.

FREE YARD SALE ADVERTISING: If you get your yard sale permit by Thursday noon (or earlier) the week prior to the sale (i.e. about nine days prior to your sale), you’ll get the sale listed in that week’s Temple City Tribune newspaper in the “Temple City Spotlight” section for free. The Temple City Tribune comes out every Monday, and is available at many popular locations throughout Temple City.

If you have any questions, please call the reception desk at (626) 285-2171.
