Lisa Cahill, Councilmember Mike Bonin’s Palisades’ representative, told the Pacific Palisades Community Council that city engineers were hoping to drain the mosquito-ridden swamp alongside Palisades Drive before the rainy season, “but it will be a push.” Engineers would also be clearing out the basins alongside the road and removing trash that blocks runoff water and contributes to the swamp.
She also told the council, in a renewed initiative against fallen tree dumping along Temescal Canyon, that the city would be erecting what Cahill described as “mean” signs, warning dumpers they are enforcing fines and putting up cameras to film the most nefarious dumpers.
She said there were local tree cutters who would not only give residents healthier, beetle-free wood, but also deliver it for little or no fee.
