Reseda Neighborhood Council and the entire community extends a big open-armed welcome to Allie Drew Jones, and a warm congratulations on her birth to parents Ashley and Preston Jones. Ashley has just completed serving out her term on the Reseda Neighborhood Council Board and, not surprisingly, led on youth related issues with the Council. Expect to see them all soon at upcoming Reseda Community Events. Rumor has it Allie is already anxious to get some gloves for an upcoming Claim Back The Sidewalks clean up!

NEXT INSTALLMENT OF “CLAIM BACK THE SIDEWALKS” SATURDAY APRIL 19th
City work crews will be in Reseda again this Saturday April 19th to finish the job of trimming the trees along Sherman Way and Reseda Blvd.
The crews will be working the north side of Sherman Way from Reseda Blvd to Lindley and the west side of Reseda Blvd from Hart to Kittridge. If the crew has time they will also remove some of the dead trees along Reseda Blvd and Sherman Way. Whatever dead trees have not been removed this Saturday will be scheduled for removal on another day.
The transportation committee wants to thank Reseda’s business owners and and residents for their understanding while work crews are on the streets. Once again you can expect to see no parking tow away signs along these stretches of both streets on Saturday April 19.
From now till the end of June you can expect to see both tree trimming as well as small asphalt repair trucks in Reseda on Saturdays. As work is scheduled we will announce the places, dates and type of work to be done.

L.A. COUNTY BOARD OF SUPERVISORS DEBATE IN RESEDA
SPEND $25 ON THE 25TH AT TACOS CORONA
We continue to highlight the ambiance of Reseda’s places to eat. This month, Taco’s Corona will be the place to go on the 25th to meet your neighbors and sample local cuisine. Tacos Corona is located in the Carniceria Corona Market, 18326 Sherman Way. Plenty of parking on the lots in the rear.
Rumor has it that there will be some musical entertainment on hand to enhance the experience.
The Reseda NC’s Economic Development & Outreach Committees continue with the monthly highlighting of Reseda Businesses to encourage YOU to spend your money, shopping for goods and services in Reseda. Approximately $0.45 of each dollar spent within our community stays with our community, but bucks spent in other communities the money stays there. So save the gas or bus fare, or pedal your bike to a local merchant and keep Reseda on the rise.
HOW WOULD YOU SPEND $7.2 BILLION?
MESSAGE FROM COUNCILMEMBER BLUMENFIELD:
The City of Los Angeles’s budget for everything we do is approximately $7.2 billion. We are facing a $242 million structural deficit entering the next fiscal year which begins on July 1. A “structural deficit” fundamentally means that our expenses (money going out) are outpacing our revenue (money coming in). Because the City can’t continue to live beyond its means, I need your input on what is most important as the Council faces the tough budget decisions this year.
Please know that I will continue my concerted efforts to make City government more efficient, cost effective, transparent and rooted in performance measures and metrics.
However, despite ongoing successes in this realm, and more expected, the budget choices we have to make cannot be completely averted.
Please take the survey at blumenfield.lacity.org/budget_survey to let me know your budget priorities, thoughts and concerns for the upcoming budget.
Councilmember Bob Blumenfield
