FRAZIER PARK, CA (Wednesday, Sept. 3, 2014 at 9:45 p.m.)—The Mountain Enterprise newspaper in Frazier Park broke this story last January after photographing City of Los Angeles Sanitation trucks leaving an illegal dumping site in Lebec. We followed private contract trucks to learn their destinations after they picked up the allegedly illegal cargo. Now, after sparking a permit investigation by a Kern County Agricultural Commissioner, the Enterprise has produced an exclusive report about a notification to City of Los Angeles accusing the city’s sanitation bureau of violating several quarantines and giving the L.A. bureau 20 days to respond. The deadline for that 20-day response is September 9.
City of L.A. attorneys claimed yesterday (September 2) that the Sanitation bureau did not violate any laws.
Get the full story on newsstands throughout Frazier Park and surrounding communities on Thursday morning, September 4.
