Looks like the Mayor's office can no longer ignore the city's neighborhood councils, mean while we're wondering which one of the 19 different deputy mayors this one is.
Press release from Mr. Box at BudgetLA:
The BudgetLA Journey Continues!
This Friday, February 19th at 3pm, the BudgetLA community meets with Deputy Mayor Larry Frank for a presentation on the reorganization of the Neighborhood Council System.
This meeting is the culmination of the tremendous work done by the hundreds of people who have participated in the BudgetLA journey, representing 75 of the 90 certified neighborhood councils.
There is a lot of ground to cover, from NC elections and NC funding to the core priorities of the Department of Neighborhood Empowerment. Now, more than ever, it is imperative that we put all of our energy into being part of the solution as we take on the city's budget crisis and as we work together to position neighborhood councils as an asset in the journey to make Los Angeles a Great City.
