Park Expenses Running
AN ERRONEOUS ASSESSMENT
PROPOSED SYSTEM OF DRAINAGE
FOR EAST LOS ANGELES
Collections of Various City Officials
for October—Taxes Coming in
Rapidly—City Hall Notes
Owing to the fact that the expenses
at the parks have been much higher dur
ing the first four months of the fiscal
year than was expected, the board of
park commissioners has decided upon a
reduction of 25 per cent in the labor ac
count. Secretary Mendenhall filed a
financial report at yesterday's meeting
of the board which, among other things,
showed that since July 1, $16,000 had
been expended of the total appropria
tion of $53,000. If the expenses were
kept at the present figure it was stated
that the parks could not be properly
maintained in the spring and early sum
mer. The alternative of discharging
.one-fourth of the men now employed or
reducing their time one-fourth and re
taining all of them was presented and
the latter course was decided upon. The
men who have heretofore been making
full time will her. after work three weeks
Commissioner Griffith called attention
to the fact that Herman Spey, who has
the boating privilege at Echo park, was
$43.75 behind in his payments. The sec
retary was instructed to notify the con
tractor that he must either make an
Immediate settlement or surrender his
Superintendent Garey reported that
J. J. White, who has the boating privi
lege at East Side park had returned all
of the gold fish which he hud in a tank
there to be sold and had also made ar
rangements to pay the city for the fish
he had sold. It will be remembered that
at the last meeting of the board White
was reported to have claimed the ex
clusive fishing privilege at that park,
and had, It was reported, said that if he
could not fish there no one else should.
Mr. White appeared before the commis
sion and stated that his action had been
due to a misinterpretation of the terms
of his contract. He had supposed that
he had the right to sell gold fish, but
when he learned that he had not he
was willing to pay for what he had sold.
He denied any intention of contesting
the matter and asserted his willingness
to abide by any instructions which the
board might give him. The explanation
was accepted and White was given to
understand that the fishing privileges at
the park were reserved to the park au
thorities and the public.
Superintendent Garey reported the,
following work done at the parks: At
Westlake park, a concrete abutment
10 feet high and 4 feet wide had been
placed. An iron gate has been so placed
'as to provide means of draining the
lake should it ever be necessary. The
overflow from the lake has been so ar
ranged as to flow directly into the sewer.
About 3000 plants had been set out. Sev
eral hundred loads of materials had been
hauled to "the park.
In East Side park a lawn of 16,625
square feet has been sown and 9250
plants set out. Preparations have been
made for laying 600 feet of four-inch
In the nursery department 900 plants
had been sent to Fremont Gate; 1000
to Westlake, 9735 to East Side.
In the nursery department of Elysian
park there were set out 2000 tuberoses,
I 300 violets, 3000 sundry plants, 460 pot
ted plants. There were put in 200 feet
of rock coping, 80 feet of rock gutter
and 32 feet of rock wall.
in Hollenbeck park a 300-foot wall
was put in. It is seven feet high, four
feet wide at the base and two feet at the
top. Nearly 3000 plants were set out.
EAST SIDE DRAINAGE
City Engineer's Plans for Relief From
Storm Water Damage
If the plans which have been sub
mitted to the city council by City En
gineer Dockweller are approved and the
work he suggests is ordered the drain
age of East Los Angeles will be so
changed as to prevent such an accum
ulation of storm water as will do any
damage to property. The matter was
referred to him several months ago and
after a careful examination of all the
natural outlets for storm water in that
section of the city he has submitted a
report on the subject which he says con
tains the only remedy for the existing
poor drainage there. This report was
completed yesterday afternoon and was
filed with the board of public works. It
is quite voluminous and handles the
subject in detail. The first part, in
which the changes contemplated are
stated in a general way is as follows:
In the matter of storm water in East
Los Angeles, for which I am ordered by
your honorable body to devise a remedy,
I beg leave to report as follows:
The points at which the overflow from
storm water is most serious are:
First—At Workman street and Downey
avenue, where the storm water from the
entire drainage area north of Downey ave
nue, an area of abuot 570 acres, is at pres
ent discharged. Second—At Main street
between Avenue 21 and Mozart street,
which receives at present the entire flow
or storm water from practically the whole
drainage area of East Los Angeles,
amounting to 100S acres.
The remedy will consist in a proper di
version and distribution of the . storm
water, so that each street, so far as Is pos
sible, will carry its own proportion. I And
upon investigation ttiat the area of the
watershed draining into Main street
amounts to 100S acres, of which the fol
lowing portions may be diverted:
That portion which lies east of Oates
street, north of Downey avenue, and east
of Hastlake avenue, south of Downey av
enue, amounting to an area of 41S acres,
designated as the East lake avenue dis
trict, can be drained down Eastlake ave
nue Into the Arroyo de los Posa-s.
That portion of the watershed, amount
ing to 186 acres, which lies north of Avenue
28, and east of Pasadena avenue, and des
ignated on Hie attached map as Pasadena
avenue district, can be drained down Ave
nue 28 to Pasadena avenue, thence along
Pasadena avenue and Avenue 18 to the
That portion of said watershed bounded
by Downey avenue, Avenue 22, Fasadena
LOS ANGELES HERALDi FRIDAY MORNING. NOVEMBHR a IBT7
avenue. Daly street. Malnton avenue. Av
entn? 21, Albion street land the river,
amounting to (It! acres, and designated as
the Albion street district, can be drained
down Albion street to the river.
The remaining portion of the watershed,
amounting to 3SS acres, designated as the
Main street district, will continue to drain
to Main street, and discharge through the
present storm drains and the proposed ex
tensions thereof, into the river.
By making the changes as outlined, the
amount of storm water which accumu
lates at Workman street and Downey ave
nue, anil at Main street between Avenue
L'l ami Mozart street will be so materially
reduced that it can be readily disposed of
without Inconvenience to the public.
Continuing the report .takes up each
separate district and states just at what
points and by what means the changes
in drainage mentioned in the foregoing
may be accomplished. The work to be
done consists of the construction of a
number of large storm drains, the laying
of several leads of pipe and the con
struction of storm gutters of such size
as will carry off a large volume of water.
Each piece of work is minutely de
scribed and the cost of it estimated up
on the cost of other work of similar
character is stated. The total estimated
cost of the work is $5,306.60. The clos
ing paragraph of the report is as fol
I would urge upon your honorable body
the Importance of taking immediate ac
tion in this matter. Complaints without
number are filed in this connection after
every rainstorm, and the city has already
expended more money in repairing the
streets in this territory (notably the prac
tical reconstruction of Mozart street be
tween Avenue 21 and Workman street and
Avenue 21 between Mozart and Main
streets) that will be necessary for the
abatement of the nuisance.
