V.I.P. (Very Important Paper) Needed in Venice Beach!
you ever been to a public restroom only to find out there
was no toilet paper? How does it make you feel like? Disgusted?
so, I have a suggestion to those of you planning to visit
Venice Beach next weekend: Go to the bathroom before you come!
a former member of the Venice Beach Task Force, I convinced
the city to clean the restrooms three times a day rather than
two, but apparently, this is still not enough.
still stink. They still run out of toilet paper
have had a few suggestions to alleviate the problem, but the
city refuses to respond.
suggested that the city install industrial size tissue dispensers,
holding 5,000 to 10,000 sheets of toilet paper. They promised
to do so by Memorial Day Weekend, yet failed to uphold the
promise. The consequences for thousands of visitors last weekend
suggested to a representative from Councilwoman Galanter's
office for at least 12 additional portable toilets for the
summer spike of tourists, but there was no response. Again,
the tourists paid this weekend.
am considering a silent protest, providing free toilet paper
to tourists near the Brooks Avenue Venice Beach Bathroom next
weekend. The tourists will be more comfortable, but they will
also see how the city has failed to meet its promises.
dire al fare, c'è di mezzo il mare!" (Italian proverb meaning
there is half an ocean between what gets said and what gets
done. Is this the new proverb for the city of L.A.?)
