Council confusion over County consolidation continues (that's called alliteration, for you English majors).
The process seemed to have everyone confused, even the Councilmembers themselves. However, when the dust settled, the net result was the LA County Fire Feasibility Study would be taken up again at the next (Nov 5) Council meeting. At that time, Council would be looking to schedule a town hall meeting for residents to learn about and/or object to the proposed consolidation of the MB Fire Department with the County Fire Department.
Update: An important update from the November 5 City Council meeting as Council voted 5-0 to not proceed with any further evaluation of a possible consolidation of the Manhattan Beach Fire Department with the County Fire Department. As a result, the MBFD will remain separate and independent from County Fire.
