Have an issue or a question for Congressman Adam Schiff's office? If so, we're delighted to announce that his staff are bringing the office to us once again.
A member of the Congressman's field staff will be on site from 2-5 pm in the Park La Brea Theater (across from the Activities Center) from 2-5 pm on Tuesday, May 9th. This is the second in a series of monthly office hours when our Congressional representative's staff will be onsite to help with constituent issues.
What kind of issues? Immigration and citizenship questions; applying for federal benefits; tracking misdirected federal payments; IRS questions; applying to a service academy; questions about federal legislation; and appeals for federal decisions are some examples.
We look forward to seeing you there! No appointment required, just walk right in. #CommunityStrong

The PLBRA Annual Meeting plus Board Election is tomorrow afternoon, Jan. 8th at 2 pm in the Activities Center Theater. We very much need a quorum to hold the Board Meeting vote, so if you're a PLBRA member, please plan to attend and vote or to vote by proxy.* (Member = paid PLBRA dues for 2023 by December 9th.)
This is a don't-miss event! Meet candidates in person. We'll also be registering voters - there's even a fire truck! See you there in Curson Square.

Tower residents have had a couple of days to try out the new valet trash service. In advance of our next Zoom Board meeting on September 6th at 7 pm, PLBRA is collecting feedback from residents on the experience. We'd like to be able to approach PLB management and have a constructive conversation about what is working and what is not. Please take the survey below - and of course, we welcome your comments about using the service after you take the survey.
If you're still having difficulties with the instructions for the service, or just need a reminder, we've created this handy cheat sheet to download. Feel free to share with friends and neighbors.
Tower Trash Valet Survey
Note: We're all human ... and I mistakenly put the wrong link in the newsletter today. If you'd like to provide feedback on your experience using the trash valet service, go here.
As you may have heard, PLB management has contracted with Valet Living to start a trash valet service in the Towers at the end of August. The garbage chutes will be retired and the basement dumpsters will be moved into the trash rooms and locked off. (There will be a couple of weeks of adjustment time where these facilities will still be available.) You can download a flyer with more information here.
Valet Living has agreed to offer information/training sessions if residents are interested. You are also free to share any thoughts regarding this change in the comment section below. PLEASE NOTE that the comment section is moderated and any comments that get personal will be deleted immediately.
