|City of Alaminos |
On January 15th, 2003, the West Sacramento City Council adopted Resolution 03-2 establishing a Sister City relationship with the city of Alaminos, Republic of the Philippines. This was done in response to the City Council of Alaminos Resolution No. 2002-130, which initiated a request for such a relationship. The relationship was formalized with the signing of a Sister City Agreement which was hand-delivered by West Sacramento City Council Member Mark Montemayor during his trip to the Philippines during late January 2003. One of the elements of the Agreement was to link web pages to inform the citizenry about each other's city. Click on the link and take a look at Alaminos!
