Q. Do You Have Any Suggestions for People Interested in Running for the ERNC?

A. Why, yes we do!  We strongly advise that you come to an ERNC meeting if you’ve never been to one (or haven’t been in a while), to see what you’re getting into. This isn’t the kind of role — or at least, it shouldn’t be — where you just show up once a month, and sit for 2-3 hours. (Though you’ll be doing plenty of that.) The ERNC works best when it’s staffed with do-ers: If you are elected to the ERNC, you will be asked to work — for free — for the betterment of Eagle Rock. You’ll be able to define exactly what that means, but the more time you put into it, the more Eagle Rock will benefit.

So come to a meeting to hear about what kinds of things were working on, and to see what our meetings look like. Stick around til the end, and ask us questions. Or fill out a speaker card, and introduce yourself during Public Comment.

Here’s a schedule of our upcoming public meetings:

- Land Use Committee meeting, 7:00pm, Feb. 20, Eagle Rock City Hall, 2035 Colorado Blvd.

- Executive Committee Meeting, 8:00pm, Feb. 25, Coffee Table Restaurant, 1958 Colorado. (This is smaller and less formal than the other meetings.)

- ERNC Board Meeting, 7:00pm, March 4, Eagle Rock City Hall, 2035 Colorado Blvd.
Remember, you can always get the latest election news on our website, www.ernc.la. If you’ve got any election-related questions, just send us an email: info@eaglerockcouncil.org

The winner – by a mile – in our Eastsider trash-can design “contest” was the design above, which is taken from a 1913 edition of the Eagle Rock Sentinel newspaper, back in the day when Eagle Rock was an independent city. Big thanks to Eric Warren of the Eagle Rock Valley Historical Society for providing the source image (and everything else the ERVHS does).
