Southland sizzles in heat wave

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Wow, we’re really getting slammed by the summer heat now. After a hot week, the weekend is bringing predictions of 90s in Los Angeles and triple digit temperatures for Burbank and the valleys. Temps are up even in the beach communities like Santa Monica, which could see a high of 95 today.

In the Media City, the high is expected to reach 101 today — it was 90 and soaring at around noon. Tomorrow, more of the same.  Not only is it time to plug in the fans, but crank-up the air conditioners as well.

    The Joslyn Center on Olive will remain open till 10:00 PM due to the heat. Residents may want to check daily depending on how long this heat wave continues.

    Our former Mayor Gary Bric has been trying to get the word out about the extended hours of Joselyn Center due to the Heat Wave.

    The City website has all the particulars!

    Thanks Gary, thanks Mike Flad.

    Sure hope Ron Davis doesn’t jack-up our electric bill.

    Gary & Dixie,

    Thanks for the info about the Joslyn Center hours. Here is the link to the Burbank city website announcing the extended hours due to the heat wave

    I dropped by the Burbank Central Library this afternoon and it was packed with folks. The Central Library is closed tomorrow, but the Buena Vista Branch will be opened 1-5 p.m. Here’s the link for more info on the libraries in Burbank

    I thought only senior citizens could go into the Josyln
    center so where does Gary Brick suggest for young families with children to go ?

    Absurd that Gary Brick is part of big cost increases to electric and water and handing out big fat cat raises to some people and then pops up saying oh you can just go to the Josyln Center. Only if you are a senior and only if you have a card I think Mr Bricks and add only if they still have room inside.

    You made it so many people can’t afford their own air conditioners just to0 hand out some fat cat raises so don’t act like you care so much Mr Bricks.

    You say “I thought” and your wrong. During a heat crisis, the Joslyn Center will not turn anyone away and you don’t have to be a Senior to use the facility. Young families and children are welcome. If you don’t believe me call, that’s how I found out. Thank you to Coucilmen Bric for trying to get the word out, I for one appreciate your effort and Dixieflyers. Maybe Resident will become X-Resident with an attitude like that.

    What is the actual capacity of the Josyln Center ?
    How many people are allowed by fire code to be in the facility safely and what is the population of Burbank ?

    I will not and am not required to become an X – resident because I find it offensive that an elected representative votes to increase the costs on residents, hands out fat cat raises and then has the gall to pretend he is offering ample facilities to meet the needs of the population.

    Some may be fooled by this fraud, I am not fooled by it at all.

    Let me try and answer your questions. #1 Good question, why don’t you call them. #2 Good question, wht don’t you call them. #3 Guessing around 105,000. Your complaining about someone that was trying to be helpful, that’s the way I saw it. It’s not about how someone voted on a certain issue. I’m not crazy about raising our utilites but after some research it looks like electric went up around 3% and water, half of the increase is water hikes from MWD, I can understand at least that portion of the increase being passed along. Check out our surrounding Cities and see what Burbank Residents have to pay. My BWP bill that I just received is $23.45 for water which means I would have an increase of about $4.00, happy about it “NO”, but something I can live with. We can still water 3 days a week, LA …………… 1 day a week.
