Bureau of Sanitation Proposed Septic Tank Ordinance Update - Tony Butka/Paula Bagasao
Land Use and Legislative Committees: Joint Session w/Bureau of Sanitation, Thurs, August 12, 6:30PM
California Assembly Bill 155 Tony Butka
Proposed Motion: Assembly Bill 155 would interject the California Legislature into the business of Local Agencies and their ability to file for bankruptcy, imposing a State Committee which would have the power to amend or deny this ability of a local agency such as a city or county to manage their own business as the duly elected officials. After discussion, it is the opinion of Glassell Park Neighborhood Council that while the State of California can't technically go bankrupt, our assemblymen/senators are doing a pretty good job of it, and that their time might be better spent in adopting a timely State budget of their own instead of meddling in the affairs of others. We, thus, oppose AB 155 & urge our assembyman & senator to vote NO.
