Our food is yet another source of greenhouse gases, and most of our food waste goes to landfills, where it can generate methane.
So, what is the City of LA doing to implement California State Senate Bill 1383, which is designed to address this problem and which went into effect January 1? Join Environmental Engineering Associate James Roska of LA Sanitation & Environment for a conversation about how the City of LA might implement it, the role of neighborhood councils, and more.

Also, we'll vote on three issues:
1) Building decarbonization, Council File 21-1463 (Koretz, Krekorian, and Raman), which our energy committee recommends we support. Our draft fact sheet (complete with sample community impact statement) is here.
You can see ABC 7's coverage here.
2) Building decarbonization (yep, again!!), Council File 22-0151 (Harris-Dawson, Koretz, Martinez, O'Farrell, and Raman), which our energy committee also recommends we support. Our draft fact sheet is here.
Spectrum News 1 reported on it here.
