Neighborhood Councils were mandated by the new Los Angeles City Charter in June of 1999. They were created to give neighborhoods a voice in policy making and influence over the way government does business. The Neighborhood Council system is already having an effect. Eventually, every neighborhood in Los Angeles will have a Council. To date, 95 have been certified.
Mid City West is funded by the City, as provided in the Charter, and charged with the responsibility of advising city departments, agencies, boards and commissions on matters of importance to our community, with providing input in the Mayor's budget process and with monitoring the delivery of city services.
