WSCCOG Endorses Measure W
October 25, 2018

On September 20, 2018, the WSCCOG Board voted unanimously to endorse Measure W – Safe Clean Water Parcel Tax. The proposed 2.5 cent parcel tax would raise approximately $300 million per year and would be dedicated to reducing pollution and enhancing local water resiliency in Los Angeles County.

The WSCCOG and its member cities are committed to protecting our waterways from stormwater contaminants and enhancing our local water resources.  The WSCCOG supports Measure W because it will help fund initiatives to reduce pollutants in our waterways, streets and along our shorelines.  It will expand local water supplies by funding projects that will capture, infiltrate and reuse rainfall. Moreover, Measure W’s emphasis on encouraging the development of nature-based projects to capture and use stormwater will create jobs throughout the County in the construction and maintenance of much needed additional open space and recreational areas.

Measure W is critical to helping our cities prepare for drought, clean our beaches, and green our communities. We applaud the County Board’s resolution to place Measure W on the November ballot and are pleased to support the County in this effort.

It’s about to be a bright, beautiful night in Beverly Hills tomorrow, Wednesday, August 2nd!

Mayor Lili Bosse and the City Council invite you to join them as they unveil an awe-inspiring creation by artist Ed Massey on Wednesday, August 2nd  at 8:00 pm at the Lily Pond in Beverly Hills Garden Park. “Portraits of Hope: Neon in 3-D at the Lily Pond” is just the beginning of a B.O.L.D.
