It was recently announced in our local newspapers that the Los Angeles city in a UNANIMOUS vote of 12 - 0, approved the fiscal budget for the coming year of $7.01 BILLION dollars. To put that figure into perspective---That's more than the entire annual Gross National Income of the entire country of Zimbabwe!!-----and keep in mind that is the Los Angeles CITY budget, and not the Los Angles county-----so when you all come to visit us out here----bring lots of money, and help keep Los Angeles green . (seems all the visits from politicians this year has us running a deficit out here---)----to meet the new budget, seems us home owners get to see the price of trash pick up (once a week) go from $28/mo. to $36/mo.---along with a whole slew of other increases of fees, permits and I don't want to even begin to discuss the cost of Water----which is about to be rationed , in that we are in the midst of a real draught out here.
