- In other action
- Alicia Nunez, a traffic services officer with the Lodi Police Department, accepted a proclamation declaring August 6 to be National Night Out. This will be Lodi’s 27th year participating in the citywide Neighborhood Watch block parties.
- Progress on repairing the pool at Hutchins Street Square has stalled. Workers who are replacing the 20-year-old fiberglass liner have found two leaks, and are still looking for the source of the second one. City Manager Rad Bartlam said his staff is not yet satisfied with the job, and won’t pay the company or open the pool until the work is completed correctly.
- The council voted 3-1 to approve a $118,000 contract with Holt of California in West Sacramento to perform repairs and maintenance on city generators. Councilwoman JoAnne Mounce voted against it after resident John Slaughterbeck questioned the cost of hiring an outside company to do work that city staff was trained in.

Lodi is on the cutting edge, and this time, it has nothing to do with wine. The Lodi City Council approved a resolution to designate seven public parking stalls around town only for charging electric vehicles as part of an ongoing project to make Lodi EV friendly. Anyone else parking there will be towed.
Rob Lechner, programs manager for the Lodi Electric Utility, says this step keeps Lodi in the forefront of cities encouraging more electric vehicle use.
