August 21, 2014 Mayor Butts' Newsletter
My intent was to publish a newsletter monthly so as not to inundate your inboxes.  But there is no much activity in our City, that I am forced to publish a fourth one for August.  Headline news! We have engaged in a Public Private Partnership with the imminent Council approval of an agreement with Thrifty Oil to rehabilitate the gas station at La Cienega and Fairview and replace it with a Community Center for meetings in Inglewood.  The facility will be exclusively used by the City and paid for by Thrifty from revenues derived from a digital graphics billboard from which Inglewood will derive a percentage of revenue.  Once again, creative thinking and decisive action by the City Council will result in a benefit for Inglewood residents. An eyesore will be converted into a modern stylish structure. If approved by the City Council, construction will begin by the end of November.  This Sunday, the eyes of the world will be on Inglewood as the Forum plays host to the MTV  Video Music Awards.  Inglewood continues to rise.

Fourth of July Safety
Fireworks are often a part of special times like the 4th of July and New Year’s Eve but they can be dangerous. Whenever you celebrate, learn how to protect yourself and those you care about from fireworks-related injuries. The risk of injury or death is greater when using any type of fireworks. Even fireworks labeled as "Safe and Sane" can burn you, or even kill you. Fireworks account for two out of five fires, more than any other cause of fires.

Residential Water and Sewer Rate Increase
Dear Inglewood Water and Sewer Customer,

On Tuesday, March 06, 2012, the City Council voted to increase water and sewer rates. This is the first rate increase since 2003, even though the City€cost to purchase water increased 35% in the last four years alone.  As a result of not increasing rates over the last nine years, the City has been unable to maintain the water system adequately and has been forced to use water reserves, which were set aside for critical capital and infrastructure improvements to operate the system and finance the deficit between water fees and actual costs to maintain water services.  If the City Council had not approved the increases, the City's water reserves would have been exhausted by August 2012.
