Venice Neighborhood Council (VNC) Agenda for OCTOBER 5th

Post Updated: The sneaky little people at the VNC sent this out saying it was November 5th, when it is actually OCTOBER 5th.

In a move sure to enrage the general population of Venice while sealing public opinion that the VNC is completely irrelevant, acting against what the majority of residents consider “neighborhood improvement” and seemingly promoting the special interest agenda of the Social Service Businesses of Venice rather than the actual stakeholders and rent paying residents, The VNC Neighborhood Committee (VNC) will meet on November OCTOBER 5th (a Tuesday) between 8-10am to discuss (and possibly make motion) to provide the lawbreaking (85.02) RV Dwellers of Venice with mobile sump trucks for their waste.

SouthPark-NotThisShitAgain

What on earth is the Venice Neighborhood Council (Neighborhood Committee) doing? How can they even entertain that the solution to lawlessness is to aid the lawbreakers? Is that not aiding and abetting the breaking of laws? And to try and sneak it past the general community by doing this from 8-10 am on a weekday when most people have to work or take their kids to school?

Note that the VNC has no plans to discuss support for the LAPD, enforcement of 85.02, the lawlessness of the RV’s they want mobile sump trucks for and the huge increase in Venice Crime.

Venice Neighborhood Council: despite your best attempts to skirt the wishes of the majority of Venice residents to promote your minority agenda, Venice residents are now taking back the streets on their own. That is supposed to be your job, but you aren’t doing it. Want to see what the residents want? Hold your meeting on a Thursday evening at 7pm.

Residents: Let Councilman Bill Rosendahl know what you think of the Venice Neighborhood Council by clicking here. Insist that he makes your thoughts known to the Mayor of Los Angeles, Antonio Villaraigosa.

Read the complete VNC schedule after the jump:

BE IT RESOLVED that the Venice Neighborhood Council, being aware that this situation has reached critical mass, requests the following actions:

1- Public bathrooms need extended hours with heightened maintenance and security. Additional portable toilets should be placed both on beach parking lots and away from the beach.
2- The City and/or the County should provide regular pickups by mobile sump trucks to each region of the City and County to immediately service a growing population due to the poor economic situation.

Preventing sanitation problems is more cost efficient than clean-up costs ( Hazmat).

5. DISCUSSION AND POSSIBLE MOTIONS :WHEREAS 16 million people visit Venice every year, they are confronted with inadequate sanitation facilities. It is a daily health and safety problem for visitors and residents alike who suffer as beach visitors leave the area, not willing to wait in lines to use the public bathroom facilities. These lines are often 25 people deep on weekends, and

WHEREAS both the County and City of Los Angeles must acknowledge the urgency of the situation and immediately increase the availability of sanitation services to the Venice area

VI. NEIGHBORHOOD REPORTS
VII. NEW BUSINESS
Jack Wong. Motion to request consideration of placing speed humps on Palms Blvd, between Lincoln and Penmar. Speed Humps already exist east of this segment of Palms, towards Beethoven.
The reason for my request is that the cars travelling on Palms are clipping along at a pretty fast pace and there is an element of danger pulling out of the driveway onto Palms. The situation is made worse by the fact that the cars parked on the street also obscure the line of vision.

VIII. Administrative: Change – Next meeting November 2, 2010. I will be absent, Who would like to chair the meeting?
