The North Hollywood North East Neighborhood Council met Thursday at Arminta Street Elementary School night and discussed several community issues.
Senior Lead Officer Esther Vasquez of the Los Angeles Police Department's Foothill Division presented the crime events of the month. Officer Vasquez noted that overall crime has dipped in the area she represents, due to citizens calling police when criminal activity is occurring, helping the Foothill Division better implement its resources. A possible new park and street improvement issues were also discussed. Vasquez also discussed the Sept. 9.
Susan Williams of Save A Heart Save A Mind Foundation presented a request for community assistance for her organization that helps teens stay out of trouble. Her son, Stevie Williams, is a professional skateboarder.
Gary Bartz, the local government and community relations liaison from the L.A. Department of Water & Power explained to citizens and board members the reasons for the DWP's proposal for upcoming rate hikes.
