LAHSA (Los Angeles Housing Services Authority) is in the political sights of the LA County Board of Supervisors (see LA Times article below).  In their title LA means both LA County and LA City.  The County has 10 million people.  Four million of those people live in the City of Los Angeles.

LAHSA has control/oversight over Prop. H money for County wide Homeless Services.  That was $355 million per year for 10 years generated by an increased sales tax.  Total $3.55 billion over ten years.

LAHSA  DOES NOT have control of HHH money, which was a City of Los Angeles homeless construction bond issue of $1.2 billion over 10 years.  That money is controlled by HCIDLA (Los Angeles Housing Community Investment Department).  The County provides the services for those building projects.

LAHSA also runs the Annual Homeless Count for the County and City of Los Angeles.  Another enterprise that is questionable in its validity.

LOVE the Hamlet story!
Thank you for your observant and caring heart Kristin!

Same thing happened to a neighbors cat in the Oxford triangle some 25-30 years ago.
‘Imax’ was found  about 30 miles from home!
I cannot remember how she found him eventually, months later, but technology was far less advanced or available!
But Imax made it home eventually and lived a long happy life!

Thank you for Ivan’s update. Was thinking he was traveling now. Glad he is having a good time.
He deserves some food, R & R.

Los Angeles City Council Planning and Land Use Committee (PLUM) will vote on the Short Term Rentals Ordinance Tuesday, April 10, 2:30 pm, LA City Hall, 200 North Spring, Room 340.  The proposed ordinance will then move to the full City Council for a vote.

The proposed ordinance would legalize short-term rentals with the following restrictions:
Only a primary residence could be rented short-term
Hosts would be required to register with the city (or face steep fines)
Prohibition of short-term rentals in rent-stabilized (RSO) homes
Cap limit on number of days a host can rent their primary residence annually.
In addition to the proposed citywide regulations which would allow home sharing as a limited accessory use in one’s non-RSO designated primary residence, PLUM will consider a process by which hosts who meet specific stringent criteria have the ability to apply for approvals that allow for home-sharing above and beyond the citywide cap on days.

El Mercado owners sue to stop the homeless project in Boyle Heights.  This is the project Councilman Jose Huizar has been on and off with his approval.  They want a full environmental report.
