Motion to Provide More Drinking Water at Tonight’s VNC Meeting

In the wake of Venice Neighborhood Council President, Mike Newhouse’s Yo! Venice discussion on how local restaurants could better conserve water, an interesting motion will be put forward at tonight’s VNC meeting that could see more water handed out by establishments.

On behalf of We the People of Los Angeles, local homeless activist Jarad ben Noah will put forward the “Support for Cup of Water Law”.

The motion says that as clean water is a fundamental human right under the U.N. declaration that We the People of Los Angeles are asking it be made mandatory that any bar, restaurant, or cafe open to the general public provide at least one cup of water on request to any member of the public.

Whether or not that person meets the dress code of the establishment, or whether or not the person is customer, the motion moves to enforce a civil penalty for any establishment refusing to bring a cup of water upon request.

Tonight’s meeting is open to the public, other issues covered on the agenda include noise and sound ordinance enforcement, a “No Support” of street vending motion, plans to legalize safe bootleg units, and other pressing Venice issues.

Senior Lead Officers Peggy Thusing and Kristen Delatori  from LAPD pacific division will provide a monthly Venice crime report.

The Venice Neighborhood Council meeting is tonight from 7:00pm at Westminster Elementary School, 1010 Abbot Kinney Blvd., Venice.
