Councilmember Rex Richardson's Weekly Letter

In the past few weeks, we have been updating you on the Fire Department’s plans to restaff our rescue units because of the elimination of the Rapid Medic Deployment (RMD) pilot program.

The time for action is now. On Tuesday, October 6th, I will be asking the city and the fire department how they plan on protecting North Long Beach. Click here to read my Council Item. 

The city needs to hear from you on the importance of maintaining our fire services. You can make a difference and help keep our community safe. Come find out what this means for you and your neighbors at our next city council meeting on Tuesday, October 6th at 5:00 PM at City Hall.

I look forward to seeing you there. RSVP to attend here:

Secondly, The second cycle of participatory budgeting in District 9 has officially begun! 

Starting October 10th, community members will once again brainstorm spending ideas at PB neighborhood assemblies. Volunteers will turn these ideas into full proposals, residents will vote on projects next May, and the winning projects will be implemented.

Join us at an upcoming Participatory Budgeting Neighborhood Assembly to share your ideas and get involved in shaping the future of our district.

Lastly, I want to share two neighborhood meetings scheduled for this week:

-  Starr King Neighborhood Association -Wednesday, October 7th, 7:00 p.m. at Greater United Faith (6934 N. LB Blvd.)

-  Grant Neighborhood Association - Thursday, October 8th, 7:00 p.m. at American Legion (1215 E. 59th St.)
