1. Ethics Training

On October 7, 2005, the Governor of California signed Assembly Bill No. 1234. AB 1234 requires that if a local agency provides any type of compensation, salary, or stipend to, or reimburses the expenses of a member of its 'legislative body' (as that term is defined in California Government Code Section 54952), that local agency's officials must receive training in ethics. AB 1234 requires that officials take a 2-hour ethics course every two years. Below is a link to the Fair Political Practices Commission's website page regarding Ethics Training for local officials and an online Ethics Course.

2. Waste Characterization Guide

The Sunshine Canyon Landfill Local Enforcement Agency (SCL LEA) oversees and also conducts waste characterization studies as part of its overall activities. The SCL LEA works collaboratively with the City of Los Angeles Sanitation Department and others in providing guidance on standard methods and protocols for waste characterization studies. Note that each waste characterization study should be designed for a specific purpose. In the attachments below, a general waste characterization guide that is utilized by the City of Los Angeles Sanitation Department is provided.
