The Los Angeles area is bracing for several back-to-back rain events this week, and I want to be sure you have the most up-to-date information available on how the City is preparing for the wet weather, as well as provide you with some tips on what to do around your home to protect your family and companion animals.

Each year, the Los Angeles Bureau of Sanitation (LASAN) prepares itself and Los Angeles residents and businesses for the rainy season. This year, we are anticipating El Niño, which will likely cause higher-intensity storms and potential flooding.


CITY HALL -- The City of Los Angeles announced this week the launch of a $200,000 grant program that aims to enhance our communities with through public art projects in public spaces across L.A.

The Arts Activation Fund, a program of the Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA), will provide funding to artists with inspiring ideas for public art projects and cultural events in their neighborhoods.

"Through the work in my committee, we reactivated the Mural Ordinance, revived the Arts Development Fee resulting in millions of dollars for new public art, and guided the new Arts Activation Fund, which will contribute to Los Angeles as a city that values its arts and culture," said Councilmember Mitch O'Farrell, Chair of the City's Arts, Parks, and Los Angeles River Committee. "I want to thank DCA General Manager Danielle Brazell and her staff for their work to identify even more opportunities for artists to shine in the City of Los Angeles."
