Hermosa Beach About Town
Kiwanis donates to schools
The Hermosa Beach Kiwanis donated $15,000 to the Hermosa Beach City School District last week, the proceeds of its annual Taste at the Beach event. Taste at the Beach takes place every summer at the Community Center and offers attendees the chance to sample from chefs, wineries and craft brewers in the region.
Mayor Rotation Ceremony
Mayor pro tem Mary Campbell will take her turn at the head of the dais Thursday evening when she replaces Stacey Armato as mayor of Hermosa Beach. Hermosa, like other cities of similar size, rotates the mayor position among its five elected council members. Unlike cities in which a mayor is elected separately, the position is ceremonial. However, mayors act as the public face of the city, representing it at conferences and events. Mayors are also responsible for running the City Council’s meetings. Campbell, elected in November 2017, takes the reins at 6 p.m. in the Council Chambers.
