Local Officials Weigh in on Restaurant Ban
November 24, 2020
On the Nov. 24 edition of the Reporter Roundup, KPCC reporters discuss officials weighing in on the recent restaurant ban in response to a COVID-19 surge, a plan to overhaul the juvenile justice system, a change to how voting districts are drawn and a look at the growing homelessness crisis in Venice.
Los Angeles officials met today to debate the outdoor dining ban — with very different outcomes. Elina Shatkin discusses what lawmakers are saying.
The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors today approved a plan to dramatically overhaul the juvenile justice system. Robert Garrova has more on why a “care-first” model is needed.
One thing the Board of Supervisors will no longer decide on anymore is how the county’s voting districts should be drawn. Caroline Champlin explains why this power was taken away by the state and who will replace them.
Venice has been one of the epicenters for homelessness in L.A. Aaron Schrank has talked to residents as well as the unhoused about the growing crisis.
