Midtown NoHo NC Approves Funding For Whitnall Dog Park Lights
North Hollywood- Toulca Lake Pat - almost 5 years
At its monthly meeting on Wednesday, the Midtown NoHo Neighborhood Council voted to fund the lights at the Whitnall Off-Leash Dog Park for a year, starting in July. Last month, in what was believed to have been a close 7-6 vote, the council voted to stop funding the lights, even though the Greater Toluca Lake Neighborhood Council had voted to fund half of the annual cost, which is $846.
However, the tabulation of the votes had been miscalculated, and the vote was actually a 6-6 tie. After the meeting, the mistake was discovered, and according to Department of Neighborhood Empowerment rules, the issue had to be re-voted on, according to MTNHNC President Mary Garcia.
If the council had decided against funding the lights, the decision could have turned them off at the park for the third time in a year. See previous stories, and the attached video from 2011:
