    What a convenient time for citizens with jobs. Not.

    A very discouraging meeting for our community. It seemed that it was never an issue of whether the dump should be there, our valley has to just take “one for the team”. Once a landfill is there, the Commissioners seem to think that there is no way to close it and that they are not allowed to vote no. And they had some really odd questions, like how could the community get the idea that they were promised it would be closed? Geez! Like maybe because they WERE promised it would be closed.

    What was obvious is that the County never intended to enforce its conditions of approval, they were just tricking all of us. I guess they are tricking us every time the put conditions on a project.

    Now we are stuck with one of the biggest dumps in the nation in our own Valley. Cemex on one end, Chiquita Dump on the other and polluted Bermite in the center. Do you have kids with asthma? Best look for another place to live because none of the electeds in this valley care about you and your problems.

    Well, this seems to be another interesting action of the County of Los Angeles on behalf of it’s residents. Or should I say it’s contributors?

    I tried to find the online version of this important meeting, Instead I was given the opportunity to view records wherein the County was giving away access to ATT and other digital service providers access to sites and existing poles/fixture points around the County.

    Of course none of those installs would improve signal strength in my neighborhood.

    Still, I proceeded to look for the Chiquita Landfill information. And found nothing.

    Give it up folks. The deal is not only done, it is cemented. The only way that Chiquita is going to be stopped is when Newhall Land and Framing has built out to the county line.

    Then, and only then will the County respond to complaints from the Hoi Polloi who live in the new condos, ranchettes, and estates on the west side (and south side) of the former Santa Clara River. And that will be when 5 Points has made their money from their investments.

    I find it fascinating that the County who approved a development based on one company’s “investment”(aka payments)should go ahead and blow through further development issues like they don’t exist.

    Could there be a reason that Antonovich and friends needed this to happen?

    Nah, that’s just wild thoughts and innuendos.

  4. Sally White says:

    It is difficult to be a fair and honest arbiter when your organization (LA COUNTY) receives ~$770,000 per month in tipping fees!!

    We ALL know, MONEY SPEAKS WITH A LOUD AND STRONG VOICE!
