Does anyone know when the Pali Library will open? It’s been a year without a library in our community. If hair and nail salons and tattoo parlors can open, libraries can be made safe with masks and social distancing. What’s stopping this? Let’s re-open and read!
Editor’s note: The Post reached out to the library for more information about reopening, but had not received an answer when going to print.
After getting my second consecutive bill from LADWAP of over $1,000 up from a low of $625, last year I decided to call them and spoke to a Supervisor. I told her that I have tried anything that I can think of to cut down my bill. I am in my 80s and have showered everyday all of my life. I now shower every 3 days. I used to wash my clothes once a week and now do it once every 2 weeks. I used to wash my dishes every week and now do it once every 2 weeks. I used to water my lawn and garden 3 times a week. Now I do it every 10 days, What else can I do? My bill keeps going even though my usage has gone down. Here is what the Supervisor at LADWAP told me. You live in the Palisades, a beautiful area I am sure in a very nice house. There are many others who live in lower economic communities such as Southcentral LA amongst others that could not afford their bill. At the beginning of last year LADWAP dropped the rate that people in these communities pay and to make up the loss of revenue raised the rate to the higher economic areas. That’s why you are paying more now.
Editor’s note: In response to an email request for more information, the Post received the following reply: “That is not how our rate is structured. Charges are based on how much customers use, based on Tiers. Nothing has changed in this regard. You can get more information about rates on our website ladwp.com/rates.”
Palisades I hope you’re all holding up ok! Think about how much we’ve already gone through, nearly a year of this pandemic. We are seeing so many glimmers of hope, this is your reminder to stay strong and carry on. We are so resilient!! Hopefully we can all be together soon.
Apparently there is an influx of visitors at our local parks lately, leaving behind trails of litter, in turn hurting wildlife, their ecosystems and our neighborhood. Just be vigilant and let a ranger know if you see this type of behavior, it’s really not okay.
I thought it was a really sweet idea to hand out valentines last weekend to senior members of the community. I know I miss being able to travel to see my grandparents, so I am glad something was done to mark the day.
