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.

All LA RESIDENTS CAN NOW PUT FOOD SCRAPS IN GREEN TRASH BINS

Posted on 01/16/2023

 

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 www.lacitysan.org/organics 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.!

LA ANIMAL SERVICES NEEDS YOUR HELP TO ADOPT OR FOSTER A PET

Posted on 06/17/2022

LA Animal Services is Facing a Kennel Space Crisis

And We Need Your Help to Adopt or Foster a Pet

Los Angeles, June 14, 2022 – LA Animal Services is one of thousands of shelters across the country experiencing an increase in intake of medium to large size dogs. Because more pets are coming into our shelters than getting adopted or fostered each day, our six Centers are running out of available kennels for our canine companions. 

“We have taken measures each month to increase pet adoptions, foster homes, transfers of pets to rescue partners, and pets being returned home,” said Annette Ramirez, Interim General Manager for LA Animal Services. “Despite these efforts, the intake numbers continue to outpace community placements.” 

To better illustrate the current level of our shelter population, we have created a visual that indicates our current shelter capacity level. Due to the continued increase of animals, primarily dogs, into our six shelters during the past several months, we are currently at the Orange/Extreme Level. We are pleading to animal-loving Angelenos to help us find homes for the pets in our shelters by fostering or adopting. 

Your New Furry Friend is Waiting to Meet You

Our six Centers are full of adoptable pets who are ready to be a part of your family. To encourage pet adoptions, LA Animal Services will be offering reduced adoption fees on Saturday, June 18 and Sunday, June 19, 2022 for dogs and puppies; cat and kitten adoption fees will be waived thanks to a grant from the ASPCA. View pets available for adoption at laanimalservices.com/adopt.

Dogs and cats adopted from LA Animal Services join their new families already spayed or neutered, vaccinated, licensed, and microchipped. In addition, canine companions adopted from LA Animal Services are also eligible for free dog training classes at the Paws for Life K9 Rescue People & Pet Innovation Center in Mission Hills, CA. Contact [email protected] for more details.

How You Can Help

With the 4th of July holiday approaching in just a few weeks, LA Animal Services expects to see a continued upward trend of pet intakes, so as to avoid going into a Red/Critical Level, here are some ways YOU can help the pets in our care:
