City of Venice

For a city of Venetians

June Town Council Meeting

The Town Council of the City of Venice met on June 13 with 39 Venetians in attendance. The Council elected Jim Smith, Chair/Facilitator and Peggy Lee Kennedy, Secretary, for the month. 

The first item on the agenda took up the most time. It was on the Overnight Parking District Plan by the city of L.A. which would require all Venetians to buy a permit to park on the streets overnight. The Town Council resolved to oppose the Plan and to collect signatures on petitions against it. A hearing is scheduled to begin at 6PM, June 26 at Westminster School Auditorium where testimony pro and con will be taken. Everyone is urged to attend.

A resolution was adopted to ask and demand that Whole Foods Market do the following:

  1. Hire disadvantaged youth and adults from Venice.
  2. Respect their right to representation on the job.
  3. Allow mobile Venetians to park in the lot when the store is not open.
  4. Instruct security guards not to take down license numbers and other information on RVs and turn it over to city officials.

The Town Council voted to endorse a town hall on homelessness to be held on July 9 at the United Methodist Church

The next meeting of the Town Council was set for 7:30PM, Friday, July 11 at the church auditorium, 2210 Lincoln Blvd.
