Warner Adds Urgency Amended Camping Ordinance to Council Meeting Agenda for Tuesday, February 11, 2020

Play Video

I requested that an urgency amended camping ordinance be added to the Council meeting agenda so that any changes to the ordinance would be effective immediately.  We all knew what the situation was like at Parnell park before the park closed. Additionally,  Josue & Joe provided testimony that there are currently tents up on the Greenway Trail as well as in other areas of the City.  These situations provide cause that a health, safety and general welfare situation exists in Whittier. This new amended camping ordinance would require that all tents, tarps, pop-ups and any other camping paraphernalia be not only taken down, BUT ROLLED UP, PACKED UP AND REMOVED FROM PUBLIC SPACES DURING THE DAY, unless it is either raining and/or below 50 degrees.

Janice Hahn

Chairman
Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors

I share a legacy with Cathy of our fathers working together for the greater good and safety of Los Angeles County and the Los Angeles County Fire Department. When my father, Kenny Hahn was serving as Second District Supervisor for the County, Cathy's dad, Earl Dunn served as Local 1014 Union President for the LA County Firefighters.

Together our fathers worked together to create the three platoon shift system our firefighters enjoy today as well as enhanced pension and health benefits.

Cathy and I share that same collaborative spirit as we have worked together with the rest of the Whittier City Council to provide services and programs for the residents of Whittier.

Additionally, Cathy has provided leadership for the Los Angeles County Sanitation District in her role as chairman of District 2. Because of this capacity, she and I have collaborated closely to help facilitate successful labor negotiations for the District.

As we continue to work on the issues facing residents of Whittier and Los Angeles County, I am proud to have a great partner in Cathy Warner.
