Mayor Proposes Ordinance to Protect Brush Areas from Encampments

(26 August 2019) Mayor Eric Garcetti has proposed an ordinance that would allow police to remove trespassers in areas where there is a risk of a fire by orally telling them to leave. Currently authorities have to have signs posted every 500 feet. Ordinance is to go before the Public Safety committee.

Locally, the area between the 91 Freeway was set fire a few years ago by homeless encampments.
