CITY COUNCIL APPROVES PLAN FOR BUDGET, INCLUDING FUNDING FOR ALISO CREEK CONFLUENCE PARK

As posted by Councilmember Bob Blumenfield:

The Los Angeles City Council today approved the City’s $8.6 billion budget for the upcoming fiscal year.

In a budget survey sent out last month, I asked you to let me know your priorities for the City’s upcoming budget. I received hundreds of responses, and despite a diversity of ideas, a clear consensus emerged: public safety must remain our top priority, and we need to remain focused on growing and improving the City’s physical and environmental infrastructure to make LA a safe, clean, green and friendly place for people and businesses while ensuring our long-term, fiscal sustainability.

This budget takes concrete steps towards meeting those goals by expanding LAFD recruitment, putting more of our men and women in uniform on the street, paving 2,400 lane miles of road, putting $31 million toward sidewalk repair, and increasing the number of trees trimmed by 50%.

For my neighbors in the West Valley, I worked hard to ensure that this budget reflects our needs. We secured funding for the Aliso Creek Confluence Park, a new and critically needed storm drain on Ventura Blvd in Woodland Hills, a new gate at the LAPD Topanga Police, and more.

WEST VALLEY LAPD YOUTH PROGRAMS FAMILY FUN BBQ

THIS SUNDAY!

2015-Family-Fun-Barbecue-Reseda-NC


INTRODUCTION TO SQUARE DANCE

We are reaching out to people, especially younger people, that haven’t had much, or any, exposure to Square Dance, our American Heritage Folk Dance. We are offering a free, no obligation, Introduction to Square Dance for eight Sunday evenings. In an hour you can learn the basics. We will have experienced dancers there to help. Square Dancing is actually a team dance, as it takes 8 people to form one “square” of dancers. Square Dancing is very social; you won’t be dancing with one person the whole night, more like 30 to 40. It’s a non-smoking, non-alcoholic activity where parents, grandparents, children, teachers and students can all dance together and have fun.

You can come for free one night or all eight. Plan to bring some friends or colleagues and make an evening of it.

ATTENTION HAM RADIO OPERATORS

If you are a licenced HAM operator within the Reseda Neighborhood Council Boundaries of Roscoe, White Oak, Victory & Corbin, the Reseda NC’s Emergency, Disaster & Community Safety Committee wants to hear from you. The Committee is assembling a list of assets available, should a disaster strike our community. The end structure will include communications, medical and emergency trained individuals as well as other resources that would be of value in the period of time that it takes City, County, State or Federal relief to arrive.

For those present for the Northridge Quake (Epicenter in Reseda) some of those resources were a challenge in the beginning.
