Councilmember Huizar and CD 14 staff would like to update you on last week’s windstorm. As of Sunday, DWP reported that all customers’ power had been restored. Over the weekend here in the Northeast, we had over 100 Bureau of Street Service (BSS) workers, CD 14 staff from all District and City Hall offices and local community volunteers assisting in the cleanup effort, removing tree limbs and green waste from the area.
While fielding over 100 phone calls and office visits from constituents regarding loss of power or fallen trees, Council District 14 offices remained open late and staff pushed for daily and in some cases hourly updates from the Department of Water & Power, BSS and the Department of Sanitation to ensure that Northeast Los Angeles’ residents services and safety concerns were addressed as quickly as possible.
TRASH DELIVERY UPDATE
• Tomorrow, Tuesday, Dec. 6, 2011, is trash pick up day in Eagle Rock, Highland Park, Glassell Park and Mt. Washington. Bureau of Sanitation will make every effort to pick up green debris in trash bags placed by the green trash bin.
• Please contact the Council District 14 Northeast Office for larger pickups. Also, there is a large trash bin where residents are encouraged to drop-off any debris at the Eagle Rock City Hall/ CD-14 Office, located at 2035 Colorado Blvd. (at Maywood).
• BSS has been working every day cleaning debris and will continue to do so.
• In CD 14, they have responded to 277 locations and made them secure and passable where necessary. Citywide, that number is 1,371.
If you still don’t have power or a tree is down, please contact Zenay Loera at (323) 254-5295 or firstname.lastname@example.org
