The City wants to increase fees over a five year period, starting March 1, 2005.The City of Los Angeles Department of Public Works has issued a "helpful" FAQ for those playing at home and has scheduled a slew of community meetings (see below for the list) to explain the changes.

John Ferraro Council Chamber, Room 340, City Hall, 200 North Spring Street, Los Angeles, California 90012.
