Thank you, Prayer Breakfast Committee

News From CVTC  » Harry LEON


The 9th Annual Prayer Breakfast was very successful with 100 attendees. I want to thank St. Luke’s of the Mountains Episcopal Church for hosting the breakfast and and our keynote speaker, Dr. Linda Junge, principal of Crescenta Valley High School. She mentors many of our community’s teenagers every day at CVHS and she was the perfect person we needed to share with us lessons on unity. Her keynote brought everyone in the audience to a place near and dear to them.

CVWD is facing a lot of challenges, as are many other water providers throughout California, including increasing operational and financial challenges to maintain and update infrastructure. Contributing to these challenges are escalating energy costs, expanding regulatory costs, rising imported water costs, increasing costs of construction and the growing costs resulting from deferred facility maintenance. Mr. Ochoa, the CVWD general manger, will be at Crescenta Valley Town Council March general meeting on March 19 to present to our community a plan to tackle these challenges.

Also, mark your calendar for March 26 when Prom Plus hosts its annual open house barbecue Crescenta Valley High School. Please come and support this delicious fundraiser that is from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on the school campus.

The Council is in contact with LA County Public Works to fill potholes. Alas, potholes occur when droughts are interrupted. Roads need maintenance. I would like to also take this opportunity to remind readers not to dump bulky items on streets and easements. Call Burrtec in advance and arrange pick-up or, if you do not live in unincorporated La Crescenta and Montrose, call your trash provider to pick up these bulky items. Using geolocation and photographs, the Works App of LA County can also be used to report problems like trash dumping along with graffiti and other issues. Those who dump bulky items can be cited.

See you on Thursday, March 19 at 7 p.m. at the general meeting of the CV Town Council at the La Crescenta Library community room, 2809 Foothill Blvd., La Crescenta.

Harry Leon, President
