* Tired of getting all that NOT requested single-use stuff, e.g. plastic utensils, with your to-go orders? Please call to support the City of Los Angeles version of this ordinance & help restaurants save money and reduce trash. See GEC’s letter for why.

Motion providing direction to staff to do the following: survey 117 bus stops to update the 2017 list of bus stops, prioritized by ridership, that are candidates for a bus shelter structure as part of Phase I; survey the 234 other bus stops to prepare a list of bus stops, prioritized by ridership, that are candidates for a bus shade structure as part of Phase II; return to the City Council with the survey outcomes and revised cost estimates for both program phases

GEC LETTER OF SUPPORT RE: ITEM 8a: ACCESSORIES UPON REQUEST

GEC sent a LETTER OF SUPPORT to City Council for passage of Glendale’s proposed Disposable Foodware Accessories Ordinance, requesting the ordinance integrate Los Angeles City’s ordinance language which has two key differences from the county version which make it more substantial and effective. The letter was written in collaboration with Ban SUP and signed by over 15 organizations. GEC thanks all the organizations supporting our request and the input in particular from  BAN SUP and Surfrider Foundation.
