Dear Captain Hiltner and CD11 Councilperson Bill Rosendahl, 1-08-10
Enclosed are two letters about meetings held by CD11 Bill Rosendahl to which I request the agenda and minutes as it affects the safety and communications of the Venice-Mar Vista community. One speaks of a meeting today; one speaks of a meeting two days ago. Did these meetings truly exist or was this community and Oakwood and all of Venice again tampered without notification of what was happening? There is a failure to communicate by CD 11 and it needs to be addressed immediately. I am here to address an issue that appears to be dealt with in back rooms rather than with the people. This is wrong!
Strangely, I received two calls yesterday that there was a meeting on Wednesday with CD11 Rosendahl and 100 people attended but no one knew where the meeting was held. Did police and Officer Skinner meet with the 100 individuals attending this meeting? Where was this meeting?
The meeting supposedly was to get input from residents to remove all the RV’s in Oakwood. Yesterday, according to seniors, Officer Teresa Skinner and four officers and 2 trucks began ticketing RV’s and placing notices on RV’s informing them they have 72 hours to move their vehicles. Police, according to seniors, were checking vans to see if people were living in them. Also a senior informed me that police were placing Ordinance 4502 signs on RV’s stating you can’t live in your vehicle. Yesterday’s activities, according to seniors, were on 7th between California and Broadway upsetting community.
Today there was an ugly robbery in Penmar. Was this related to the alleged meeting and the police action without notification?
There could not have been a meeting today as the letter at the bottom states as activities started a day or two ago with the police activity in Oakwood. Are these RV’s and individuals being moved out of Oakwood being coming into Penmar and Mar Vista without out advanced notice to Penmar/ Mar Vista by CD11 or VNC or MVCC or Police ? Why wasn’t the Oakwood/ Penmar/ Mar Vista community contacted about this demographic change in population?
You appear to be less than fair in communications to all Venice and Mar Vista from what appears unilateral decision making. I hope you might prove me wrong, but I sadly do not see it coming.
