Wilk among the top dogs according to PawPAC
SACRAMENTO - Senator Scott Wilk, representing the 21st Senate District, has received an "A" grade from PawPAC, an organization dedicated to the passage of humane laws and election of humane legislators.

"Thank you to PawPac for being a steady advocate for issues that protect our animal population. PawPAC's engagement on these types of issues makes a difference," said Wilk. "As the parent of two four-legged, furry kids, it is hard to fathom someone intentionally hurting or endangering them, but sadly that does happen far too often. As an elected official I am proud to stand for common-sense legislation that will protect our animals from harm."

Senator Wilk has carried legislation to crack down on animal abusers (Senate Bills 1198 in 2018 and 580 in 2019). He has also carried legislation to expand the pool of animal blood donors in California (Senate Bill 202 in 2019) and improve conditions for animals that do donate blood.

City of Palmdale Wins APWA’s Project of the Year Amargosa Creek Recharge
PALMDALE - The City of Palmdale has won the American Public Works Association (APWA) Southern California Chapter’s 2019 Project of the Year Award in the Drainage, Water and Waste Water category for the Upper Amargosa Creek Recharge Project. The award will be presented to the City at APWA’s annual awards banquet in December.

The award-winning project was State Prop 84 funded and consisted of a regional effort between the City of Palmdale, the Antelope Valley – East Kern Water Agency (AVEK), Palmdale Water District (PWD), Los Angeles County Waterworks District (LACWD) and Department of Water Resources (DWR) to improve the reliability of the region’s water supply. Implementation of the project enables the storage of this precious resource in the local Antelope Valley Groundwater Basin for use by the region during periods of drought or disruptions in State Water Project operations.

“This project was a culmination of a decade’s worth of planning, design, and construction,” said Palmdale’s Director of Public Works Chuck Heffernan. “It included a number of unique features and challenges that incorporated innovative solutions to regional needs for water storage while bringing in recreational components and environmental protections to enhance the quality of life for the local community.”

City of Lancaster Weekly Road Closures through December 8, 2019
Lancaster, CA - In an effort to improve our neighborhoods and city streets, the City of Lancaster conducts a variety of road construction projects which will ultimately benefit our citizens. While these construction zones typically restrict traffic flow for an interim period, the results provide smoother roads and better infrastructure in various locations throughout Lancaster. Additionally, a number of community events take place year-round throughout the City, resulting in temporary traffic detours during event setup, activity, and breakdown. The City of Lancaster strives to provide as many opportunities as possible for community gathering and engagement.

The BLVD Market is an opportunity for the community to gather and enjoy an offering of fresh produce and unique items in an open market atmosphere. Beginning November 7, the Market’s fall and winter hours are 3 – 7 p.m., every Thursday on Lancaster Blvd., between Ehrlich Avenue and Fern Avenue. On Market days, this area will be closed to traffic and parking, prior to and following the Market hours, to allow for set up and tear down.
