Animal Foster Parents Needed

Submitted by lizfuller on Mon, 08/10/2009 - 09:20.

LA Animal Services needs your help to recruit volunteers to be Foster Parents for our orphaned puppies and kittens. All you need is a willingness and ability to love and nurture these babies until they are old enough to be adopted. Every day that these furry babies live without our help is a miracle. Act now to give them a chance to live a long and happy life.

Please contact an LA Animal Services New Hope coordinator at (888) 452-7381 or http://www.laanimalservices.com for more information.

Submitted by lizfuller on Thu, 07/23/2009 - 16:16.

You are invited to attend a community meeting on the Westside Subway Extension to provide an update on Metro's continued progress with this project. In April, Metro held six Public Scoping meetings to obtain community input to help shape the Draft Environmental Impact Statement/Report (DEIS/R) process currently underway. Now, Metro will present a summary of what was heard during those scoping meetings, provide an update as we continue to refine the alternatives, and discuss the potential construction process.

New Parking Meter Hours

Submitted by lizfuller on Wed, 07/22/2009 - 14:47.

Over the next 90 days, the Department of Transportation is posting new operating hours at parking meters. These new operating hours were approved by the City Council in July 2008. Since that time, the Department has been recalibrating and modernizing parking meters, which now display the new operating hours on the "insert" inside the meters. The next step in the process is to change the signs on the posts to agree with the hours displayed inside the meters.
