The Los Alamitos City Council in 2006 made note of Mr. Briggeman Sr. and Mr. Briggeman Jr.’s participation in the local community. The Los Alamitos City Council wanted to recognize Mr. Briggeman Sr. and Briggeman Jr. for their 40 years of service to the community. The council recognized their outstanding service and the legacy they have left on the city. In the coming months they will be recognized in a ceremony.
George Jr. wants the ceremony to be held sooner as his father is showing signs of aging and he isn’t sure how long his health will last. George Jr. knows that his father wants to participate in the ceremony and see the appreciation of the community as soon as it’s possible to do so. The development of Los Alamitos since the 1950s is in thanks to the support of Mr. Briggeman Sr… The council has since agreed to move the ceremony ahead by several months to comply with the wishes of Mr. Briggeman Jr.
The ceremony was held and the city council of Los Alamitos honored both Mr. Briggeman Sr. and Jr. They had a street named after their surname. One block away from Cerritos Avenue intersection and Los Alamitos Boulevard is Briggeman Drive. Mr. Briggeman Jr. said that this was a big part of the legacy and achievement of his father. He said that giving back to the community is something that he learned from his father.
