L.A. County Supervisor Michael Antonovich is not too happy about the $30 million the county is having to pay for mudslide cleanup, which entails removing nearly a million cubic yard of mud, rocks and lumber in the Station Fire area. “The U.S. Forest Service’s failure to extinguish the Station Fire in its earliest stage resulted in a catastrophe that is still impacting our County residents and taxpayers,” he said in a statement. And with more rain expected, who knows how much more damage will occur. Also: The Supervisor is in D.C. today with Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas to secure funds for the Gold Line Foothills Extension, which breaks ground this summer, and the Crenshaw/LAX Line.
