VACANT SEAT ON RESEDA NEIGHBORHOOD COUNCIL BOARD
Phil Merlin, the longest serving Reseda Neighborhood Council Board Member has offered his resignation effective on October 6 at the end of the scheduled Reseda NC Meeting.
He and his wife will be moving out of state next month. Phil has served on the Board since its beginning. He has also variously served as Parliamentarian and Treasurer, as well as heading the Reseda NC’s Senior Advocacy and Finance Committees. We will miss his insightful opinions on the various subjects that came before the Reseda NC Board.
This, however, provides an opportunity for a stakeholder in Reseda to become a member of the Board. In accordance with the bylaws an election will be held on October 20th to fill the vacant seat.
The vacancy is an At-Large Stakeholder seat and that means that anyone that fits the description of stakeholder is eligible. A stakeholder is one that lives, work, owns property or business or participates on a regular basis in an organization within the Reseda Neighborhood Council Boundaries.
If YOU have an interest in the future of Reseda, YOU might be the right person to join the Reseda NC Board!

GREAT INFO FROM RESEDA NEIGHBORHOOD COUNCIL MEETING
At the September 22 meeting of the Reseda Neighborhood Council meeting, several presentations were made.
Garth Carlson reported that the community effort to raise funds to match the $4050 contribution of Revitalize Reseda to pay for the annual Holiday Decorations that are installed in mid November, had reached the total of $2200 so far from businesses and stakeholders. It costs a total of $8100 to install, remove and store the decorations for the rest of the year.

The Los Angeles Alliance for a New Economy (LAANE) discussed the Zero Waste franchise system that is in the process of being implemented in Los Angeles. That will have 11 franchises for trash collection in Los Angeles. Each prospective franchisee must submit a proposal to handle trash collection with Zero Waste. This will eliminate the need for landfills.
Representatives of the Valley Economic Center (VEDC) Discussed the educational and financial programs that they offer to current business owners to improve their businesses and the services that they offer to those that wish to start a business. In addition they have ongoing classes than educate businesses and potential businesses on different aspects of the business world, such as marketing, bookkeeping, social media and more The cost for their services is covered from government grants and therefore is FREE.
They can help businesses secure loans from $1000 to $2,000,000. And can even set new businesses up with a zero interest loan. Check out the VEDC at 818-705-9977.
