FTC Letter and Brief Commentary re Today’s Council Vote

FTC’s counsel provided the following letter in advance of today’s city council meeting.

As is evident, not only did the city not correct its previous improper actions, it created even more problems.

Lastly, in a time when politicians wonder why fewer and fewer people are voting, today’s action might provide some insight.

By scheduling this controversial item (MP2035) the day before Thanksgiving, when most people are traveling to family, cooking for family or just being with family, the City Council has again shown its disdain for the public and the law.

This so very clearly shows the council doesn’t want public involvement and is taking action to discourage public involvement.

Is it any wonder that the public sees less and less value in voting?

City Council Holds Joint PLUM/Transpo Meeting re #MP2035

There was a great turnout at yesterday’s joint MP2035 committee meeting.

The committees certainly heard that MP2035 was disliked by the majority of those in attendance.  They also heard that increasing congestion and negatively impacting LAFD response times is a very BAD idea.  Finally, they heard (over and over) that outreach on MP2035 was dismal.

FTC thanks all those who took the time to let the council know how they feel and also thanks those on the council who voiced their concerns.

FTC is reviewing Tuesday’s meeting outcome.  We have ordered a transcript and will review that transcript along with the committee reports.  An initial review indicates multiple additional procedural/legal/charter errors may be involved.

FTC will be submitting a supplemental letter from its attorneys once its analysis is complete.

As to the results of the joint meeting…  It appears that PLUM approved something (not sure what yet) and that Transpo tied (again, not sure on what) so there was no recommendation forwarded to the full council.
