Neighborhood Councils Reach Understanding With DWP

Both the LA Times and the Daily News run stories today about the neighborhood councils and the Department of Water and Power (DWP) finalizing their Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). DLANC President Brady Westwater gets quoted in the Times piece:

The proposed pact, which was announced Wednesday and will go to the DWP board for approval next week, would set up an oversight committee of representatives from neighborhood councils that would meet periodically with DWP officials and be amply notified of major budget and policy proposals.

"This is an epic change," said Brady Westwater, president of the Downtown Neighborhood Council. "It's a new partnership."

Basically the MOU just establishes how the DPW and the neighborhood councils will communicate. I haven't read it, but it sounds like something to definitely be glad for.
