Police looking for pickup used in Silver Lake & Pico-Union shootings; water bills won’t change much post-drought; 2,000 poll workers needed

Eastside Scene: Launderland No More, Silver Lake | Gina Acuna

Morning Report

  • The same vehicle involved in a Sunday afternoon shooting that left one man injured in Silver Lake was also spotted in a separate shooting about 20 minutes later in the Pico-Union area, where another man was wounded. Police are now looking for that vehicle, which is described as a white Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck with custom black rims and a possible partial license plate number of 931 or 331. Persons who might recognize the vehicle or have any on other information about the shooting are asked to call LAPD Rampart Division gang detectives at (213) 484-3660. MyNewsLA
  • Thanks to a record snowpack and snowmelt, the LADWP will no longer have to buy expensive water as it did during the five-year-long drought. But those savings won’t add up to much for customers because the “snowmelt dividend” will be offset by a rate change to finance water system improvements. KPCC
  • The City Clerk is looking for 2,000 poll workers for the May 16 general election. Poll inspectors receive stipends of $240 while poll clerks get $140. Go here for poll worker requirements and an application.0
