The Hollywood Commission has passed a resolution stating that when an emergency unit responds to a 911 call, there is now a charge for those services.
There are too many calls and not enough resources to fund the fire-rescue squad.
They claim this assessment was a tough and well-thought-out decision. The previous city administration found a way to make many improvements with limited resources.
The decision to charge people for aid and assistance is not the way to maintain its outstanding emergency services. I wonder what’s next.
