The governing board of the Echo Park Elysian Neighborhood Council met last night for the first time since February following disruptions caused by boycotting board members and a contested election (the city eventually determined the elections were OK). But last night’s meeting was a surprise to many residents since the agenda was not posted on the neighborhood message groups. Even some board members said they had not been notified of the meeting, where newly elected officers – including a woman who has been dogged by the British press – were sworn in. The meeting was held in the council’s new offices on Echo Park Avenue behind the Bank of America in a former walk-up teller space that remains open to the outdoors except for a metal screen. That left board members to talk over the sounds of honking cars and roaring Dash buses. Pedestrians did a double take wondering what the gathering was about behind the screen. The sweet aroma from the churros truck parked across the street was a bit distracting but that did not keep the 13 board members from getting down to the business. Good luck to the new board members.
