FINALLY, some action from the City to organize the Homeless Dinners in a controlled and safe environment that requires City AND County involvement.
How long has this ball been up the air? TOO LONG.
Don’t think for one minute that if City Manager Reva Feldman didn’t get called out by Council – and on record – to actually SCHEDULE dinners on a trial basis at City Hall (you might recall my post last week re: the horror on council member Rosenthal’s new face when it was suggested by Council member Peak and Feldman “not having her calendar” available )that we would have seen any results for a good long time.
It is very clear that nothing gets done by Feldman unless it is self-serving or if she is embarrassed/forced into it.
If the old County courthouse is available now, why wasn’t it available over a year ago when over 300 people showed up to a Homeless meeting demanding the City start dealing with every aspect of this extremely important issue?
If Feldman can call out a favor to County to get these homeless dinners scheduled then that means she start doing A LOT MORE to deal with the other issues that are greatly affecting residents in this CITY. Like perhaps the HOMELESS ENCAMPMENT that has been on the same property for YEARS!
It’s not just about feeding them, it’s about DOING YOUR JOB as City Manager along side your “new and improved” Public Safety Department to earn your paycheck.
She and her highly paid administrative staff (which includes at least three assistants – something no previous City Manager needed before to run this City) NEED TO GET TO WORK without a cattle prod poking them in the a$$.
It will be very interesting to see where this goes. I am very happy for Carol Moss who has worked tirelessly on the Homeless issue in Malibu without seeing any help from the City until now.
Congrats Carol! We love you and appreciate all your efforts and your team that works so hard to help those who are truly down and out (not those who are taking advantage of the system).
Carry on the good people of Malibu. SQUEAKY WHEEL GET THE GREASE. – Cece Woods
