Lake Los Angeles Rural Town Council Agenda Meeting Wednesday August 3, 2016 7:00 pm.
1. Call to Order 7:00 pm.
2. Guest Speaker to be determined- Recommend review of November tax propositions and invite speakers to future meetings.
Update- LA County Public Works Traffic and Lighting Department will be conducting a safety study of Palmdale Blvd and a request to add stop signs at 180th and Ave O. Per Richard Yribe, the study will take 8-10 weeks. Town Council, on behalf of several resident requests, sent a letter to Richard Yribe County Public Works per resident request to address adding stop signs and safety issues on Palmdale Blvd. At the June General meeting, additional resident requests included review of bus stops, bike lanes being extended, lighting, the county dirt easement is lower than the road on 170th and Palmdale Blvd and needs to be re-leveled for safety. All issues are in review.
The Sewer Poll to re-assess community interest was published on the LLARTC Facebook July 23rd and will be open until August 28th. Updates will be provided weekly. The TC will set up at a local venue over the next month to poll local residents also. Dates and times to be announced. The Town Council Bylaws preclude the council from endorsing any issue that creates a tax. The poll is to assess community interest only to determine if the County should apply for a study, which was initiated by a prior council member. The estimated cost of the study is $400,000 so homeowners are encouraged to take the poll. The Town Council holds no public opinion in regard to the poll, and any determination will rely on the polling percentages along with public comments.
Bank Letter approved need to set time for previous president or member to meet at the bank. Print and sign bank letter voted and approved in July General meeting. Debra Hill, Melinda Maldonado, and Tina Stone will be named as signees of the account. A copy of the minutes will be provided to the bank.
Should we poll Nominate a Neighborhood? – We can provide bins at set locations to have community clean up areas. The Little Rock experiment of an Open Dump day did not go well. Would like to launch a campaign, and gauge the interest by residents, and tour the town to assess the desert areas in need of community clean up. Resident complaints of excessive trash dumping encourage clean up. Move to August Agenda meeting.\
P8 issue- Move to August Agenda.
Update 2016 minutes on LLARTC Site. Move to August
For Your Information: The solar field on the corner of 110th and Avenue O is cleared and creates a dust storm. A posted sign states to Call Mike Stern of OneTen Partners (310)826-8511 or call AQMD (877) 723-8070 to report and issue. Mike will send someone out same or next day to spray field. Admittedly, they are having an issue containing the blowing dirt with the usual tactics so they are trying to find a better solution. We can call Mike day, nights, and weekends to report an issue.
