Electric Safety Reminder!

Please use caution around any downed or dangling wires or poles. Assume the line is live, and do not approach or touch it. Report any downed or dangling wires immediately by dialing 9-1-1!

In the event of a power outage, remain calm and be prepared:

  • Always keep a flashlight and extra batteries nearby; never use candles.
  • Switch off all lights except for one so you’ll know when your power returns.
  • Keep a fully charged cell phone on hand.

Al Fresco Financial Assistance Program

Posted on 02/12/2024

L.A. Al Fresco application portals are now open!

In response to the success of the temporary program, the City is now offering permits for businesses that would like to offer Al Fresco dining permanently.

Mayor Bass announced that restaurant owners can now apply for the permanent Al Fresco outdoor dining program. The outdoor dining program originally was created in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and remains popular. The Mayor also launched financial relief for businesses owners to help them continue participating in the permanent program.

Small business owners will be automatically considered for the Fee Relief Program upon submitting their application for a revocable permit ― the permit required to operate outdoor dining on the sidewalks and on-street. Business owners are encouraged to apply early to take advantage of the fee relief and ensure adequate time for processing and inspections. As many as 1,800 small businesses are expected to benefit from the Mayor’s fee relief program.  Learn more HERE

Mayor Karen Bass - Are You Facing Evictions? Know Your Rights!

Posted on 01/30/2024

Thursday, February 1st is the deadline to repay rent owed between October 1, 2021, and January 31, 2023. The City of Los Angeles is working to prevent renter households from losing their homes and is spreading the message about resources available to help prevent Angelenos from self evicting.

“We must do all that we can to prevent people from falling into homelessness in the first place,” said Mayor Karen Bass. “February 1 is around the corner, and I want to make sure that tenants know that they have rights and can seek help from the City. Angelenos who are facing evictions because of rent owed from the COVID-19 pandemic should stay in their homes and contact the City for assistance.
Tenants cannot be evicted without cause because of actions taken by the City Council. All residential rental units in Los Angeles now officially have “just cause” protections, meaning a landlord cannot evict a tenant without declaring a legal reason for eviction. For more information about “just cause” protections, click here. In non-RSO units, these protections take effect after six months or at the end of the first lease term, whichever comes first.

LA Sanitation & Environment Organics Program Launches Citywide
Food Scraps Now Recyclable in Green Bin Under “OrganicsLA” 


Effective  immediately, all Los Angeles Sanitation and Environment (LASAN) customers should use the green bin to dispose of all food scraps and food-soiled paper, along with their existing yard waste. This is due to California Senate Bill 1383, which  requires jurisdictions to reduce the disposal of their organic waste from landfills by 75% by 2025. 

The Board of Public Works and the LA City Council have approved the necessary contracts with the companies that will process the compostable materials for the City, enabling the program to move forward, at no cost to customers.

"We appreciate the leadership of the City for moving expeditiously to make this new program come to life,” said LASAN Executive Director and General Manager Barbara Romero.  “LASAN is committed to diverting food waste from the landfill in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and create better air quality throughout Los Angeles. We have been preparing for the launch of OrganicsLA for years and are anxious for this next phase to begin."

In addition to the new OrganicsLA program, residents also have the option of composting at home, using an in-sink disposal or taking their organic material to one of the compost hubs at a Farmer's Market. Customers with questions may contact LASAN's 24-hour Customer Care Center at 1-800-773-2489 or visit to schedule an appointment to pick up a pail.

LADWP - Learn About Conservation The L.A. Way

Posted on 05/16/2022

Water conservation image.jpg

Every Drop Counts

Angelenos have made water conservation a way of life, but with the ongoing drought conditions, we are urging our customers to do more. Mayor Eric Garcetti recently announced that the City of Los Angles will move to Phase 3 of its Emergency Water Conservation Ordinance– requiring all LADWP customers to cut the number of outdoor watering days from three to two. LADWP customers with street addresses ending in odd numbers, watering will be limited to Mondays and Fridays. For all customers with addresses ending in even numbers, watering will be limited to Thursdays and Sundays. If approved by City Council, the transition would go into effect June 1. 

We continue to offer our customers rebates and incentives, which helps customers conserve more water and to save money on their bill. We also expanded our water conservation rebates with a 25% increase to our high-efficiency clothes washer rebate, from $400 to $500, as well as a more than 65% increase to our water-efficient toilet rebate, from $150 to $250.

 The less water we use now, the more we have for when we need it most. We’re in the together. Keep up the good work L.A.!
