Special Joint Committee Meeting on Sidewalk Repair Policy

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

Councilmember Blumenfield invites all residents to attend the meeting, watch on TV or online.

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
