WEED ABATEMENT PROGRAM HEARING

WHAT HAPPENED

The council approved a resolution to charge private property

owners for the cost of removing overgrown weeds and other debris

after no one spoke at a public hearing.

WHAT IT MEANS

Private property owners can either clear weeds and debris

themselves or the city, through the County of Los Angeles Weed

Abatement Program, will complete the removal and assess the owner.

The purpose of the program is to reduce fire hazards and eliminate

havens for rodents and disease-carrying insects.

VOTE

The council voted 5-0 in favor of the resolution.

LAKE ONE POWER PROJECT

WHAT HAPPENED

The council approved plans for retrofitting the Lake One Power

Project's selective catalytic reduction, which reduces nitrogen

oxide and carbon monoxide emissions so that exhaust meets South

Coast Air Quality Management District regulations.

WHAT IT MEANS

The life of the catalyst could be extended from one to five years

from a retrofit, and performance could improve by more than 10%,

according to a staff report. The project is expected to cost $750,000

and should take no longer than two weeks to install.

VOTE

The council voted 5-0 in favor of the retrofitting program.
