Oakland sets Town Hall meeting on illegal dumping
A town hall gathering is slated for Monday evening for East and West Oakland residents on the subject of illegal dumping in the city’s flatlands, according to organizers.
The East Oakland Congress of Neighborhoods has scheduled a public meeting at 6 p.m. Monday at the St. Anthony’s School Gym, at the corner of East 15th Street and 16th Avenue.
Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf and several City Council members have confirmed attendance for the meeting, organizers said. The aim of the meeting is to ask that the city budget be revised to include money to pay for more cleanup crews, inspectors and lighting, and to address known hot spots for dumping, according to organizers.
