This week, the Los Angeles City Council's Budget and Finance Committee, of which Councilmember Blumenfield is a member, will hold a joint public meeting along with the Council's Public Works Committee to begin crafting a comprehensive, citywide program to repair sidewalks next to homes and businesses.
A recent settlement agreement relative to the Class action lawsuit Willits v. City of Los Angeles has been negotiated and obligates the City to expend approximately $31 million a year for 30 years to repair Los Angeles’ broken sidewalks.
Last week, city officials released a major report outlining policy options for the City Council to consider when establishing a sidewalk repair program for Los Angeles.
The meeting will be televised live on Channel 35 and online at: http://www.lacity.org/city-government/citywide-media
He also encourages those that cannot attend in person to submit comment here on this invite page or to participate live via Twitter using #LAsidewalks
