COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT DEPARTMENT

SEEKING COMMUNITY ASSISTANCE
Community Preservation personnel seek the help of the community to keep our City and neighborhoods neat and clean by not placing items on the public right-of-way (i.e., sidewalks, parkways, or street) without first scheduling a bulky item pick-up. The City of San Fernando does not pick-up bulky items, or trash left out curbside.

However, Republic Services, provides each single family residence in the City, up to six (6) bulky time pick-ups per year, free of charge as a courtesy.  In order to take advantage of this service, the following guidelines have to be followed:
  • A pick up must be scheduled with Republic Services at 800.229.4898, prior to placing items out curbside.  Items placed out, without a scheduled pick-up, will not be removed and you may be cited.
  • Bulky items scheduled for pick-up, should only be placed out the night before your regularly scheduled trash day. Anything placed out before that time is a violation which can result in the issuance of a Code Enforcement citation.
Illegal dumping is a violation of City Code and anyone found doing so, will be fined anywhere from $220 to $825. You can report illegal dumping while it is occurring to the San Fernando Police via their non-emergency number: 818.898.1267. If you would like to report illegally dumped items, you may contact the San Fernando Public Works Department at 818.898. 1293.

Community Preservation thanks the community in advance for assisting us in keeping our City Beautiful!

POLICE DEPARTMENT

BURGLARY/RECEIVING STOLEN PROPERTY INVESTIGATION AND ARREST
On April 12, 2016, Officers responded to the 600 block of Arroyo Street, to conduct a burglary investigation at a business.  Later in the day, an employee of that business was contacted by two males in the area of Glenoaks Boulevard and Corcoran Street, which is just outside of our City limits.  The employee said that the two men were trying to sell him tools.  Some of which looked like the missing items from his employer's business.  San Fernando Police Officers responded and arrested both men.  The men were later interviewed and enough evidence was gathered from their statements to have them charged with 496 PC (receiving stolen property) by the District Attorney's Office.

CRIME AGAINST A CHILD UNDER THE AGE OF 18
On April 20, 2016, Officers responded to a residence, where a mother reported that a neighbor tried to enter her daughter's room through a window. The suspect had fled the location but was later arrested by the Officers after coming home from work.  Detective Cervantes interviewed the suspect and learned that the defendant was "attracted" to his neighbor and had leaned in through her window to look at her, with an intent of sexual gratification. The suspect was startled when the victim had awakened and fled the location. The suspect was charged with a felony filing of 647.6(b) PC (unlawful entering with the intent of sexual gratification with a child) by the District Attorney's Office.

STUDENT IDENTIFIED IN FALSE REPORT OF EMERGENCY
On April 14, , 2016, at approximately 2 pm, the Communications Center received a 9-1-1 call from a female reporting that her life was in danger at San Fernando Middle School.  As school was in session, all available sworn personnel responded and conducted a tactical search of the area.  Officers were unable to locate any emergency or person in danger.  Officers collaborated with Los Angeles Unified School District Police and school staff and were able to identify the caller several days later.  It was determined that the call was a prank and the juvenile was counseled regarding making a false report of an emergency.

MOTHER ARRESTED FOR CHILD ENDANGERMENT
On April 21, 2016, a Community Service Officer (CSO) located two toddlers aged two and three years old left alone in front of San Fernando Elementary school.  The CSO notified the Communications Center and Officers responded.  Responding Officers took custody of the two children and transported them to the San Fernando Police Station.  While an Officer remained at scene to interview witnesses, the children's mother arrived and was arrested for child endangerment.  The Department of Social Services was notified and facilitated the reunification of the children with their family.
PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT

CONCRETE IMPROVEMENTS - 600 BLOCK OF HOLLISTER STREET
Public Works has been working hard to repair dangerous road/sidewalk conditions that have developed over the past several years and serve as safety hazards to the public.  These repairs help to reduce the City's liability exposure to claims/lawsuits and improve accessibility conditions for the general public.  Our team successfully finished the reconstruction of a deteriorated concrete street in the 600 block of Hollister Street.  This location has been the source of numerous service requests from the public and had numerous uplifts/cracks due to tree roots.  The new concrete roadway is a major improvement for this neighborhood.




PUBLIC WORKS DAY OPEN HOUSE
In recognition of National Public Works Week, the Public Works Department will host an Open House.  The event will help to showcase Public Works activities to local school-aged children and educate them about the importance of water conservation, recycling, construction, and other important operations functions.  Please join us for this special event!
