Southern California Edison executives assured state lawmakers and Long Beach city officials on Saturday that it would respond to future power outages with greater competence and speed than it did during two protracted blackouts in July.
Two of the utility's top executives took harsh criticism at a town hall meeting for its slow response last July to electrical vault explosions and two sustained outages.
Efforts have been in full force to revitalize the Los Angeles River that once ran freely from Los Angeles to Long Beach but is now partially covered by concrete and graffiti.
As Mayor Eric Garcetti touted his $1.3 billion plan in Washington D.C. to restore natural elements to an 11-mile stretch of the river between Griffith Park and downtown, legislation has been making its way in Sacramento to address the southern portion of the 51-mile long river.
Like some Third World city, downtown Long Beach lost power twice in July and with it the confidence of some of its residents.
Southern California Edison, the utility company that provides power to Long Beach, needs to explain what happened and why a second underground vault that's decades old caught fire and cut off power on Thursday.
In a disturbing replay of a scene that caused a four-day outage just two weeks earlier, people were stuck in elevators, a manhole cover exploded and businesses went dark.
State regulators do not appear ready to comply with a July 31 deadline to release thousands of emails requested by the chairman of the Assembly committee overseeing the California Public Utilities Commission.
Commission President Michael Picker said in a letter on Friday that he is working to respond to the lawmaker's request for emails pertaining to the failed San Onofre power plant north of Oceanside, but gave no indication he would turn over any records by the deadline this Friday.
Si hay algo que le hace falta a las ciudades del sureste del condado de Los Ángeles son parques y espacios donde ir con la familia a dar una caminata, correr o andar en bicicleta.
Es por eso que el asambleísta demócrata de Lakewood, Anthony Rendón, se ha propuesto revitalizar el otro río Los Ángeles, al que pocos prestan atención porque atraviesa por las ciudades más densamente pobladas por hispanos, Maywood, Lynwood, Bell, Cudahy, Paramount, South Gate y la parte norte de Long Beach.
The chairman of the Assembly committee that oversees the California Public Utilities Commission has given the agency until the end of this month to secure and turn over certain emails and other documents from Southern California Edison.
Chairman Anthony Rendon, D-Lakewood, is asking Commission President Michael Picker to use his authority to demand that Edison provide internal and external emails about the failed San Onofre nuclear plant north of Oceanside. His letter this past week was his third since March.
I represent the city of Bell, which once was considered ground zero for government corruption. City bureaucrats routinely exceeded their job mandates and misused public funds for personal gain. The City Council, meanwhile, fell asleep at the wheel by neglecting to conduct stringent oversight and sometimes even participating in the unseemly activities.
Voters have since replaced those corrupt officials with a new group of reform-minded public servants, but public mistrust of government lingers.
SACRAMENTO – Assemblyman Anthony Rendon (D-Lakewood) today honored Lakewood resident Dennis Lander as 2015 Veteran of the Year for the 63rd Assembly District.
“Dennis not only served our country heroically in Vietnam but has been a leading advocate for remembering the sacrifices of our fallen troops,” Rendon said. “Dennis is a treasure of our community and I am proud to honor him as Veteran of the Year.”
SACRAMENTO – Assemblyman Anthony Rendon (D-Lakewood) today announced the award of $1 million in tax credits to Paramount-based Weber Metals, Inc. With the support of the tax credit, Weber Metals will add 26 new full-time employees through the California Competes Tax Credit program.
“It is critical that California stay competitive in the international economy we live in,” Rendon said. “This tax credit will help Weber Metals expand its business here in California and continue their innovative work in the global aerospace industry.”
