UPDATED: Supervisors will look into trash, museum

Illegal dumping and museum oversight are some of the issues that will be raised at Tuesday's meeting of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors.

The Los Angeles County Department of Public Works will recommend that the Board of Supervisors allow disposal of tires and bulky items at the Sunshine Canyon Landfill to discourage illegal dumping of those items.

The recommendation to allow dumping of large items at the Sunshine Canyon Landfill would not include residents of the Santa Clarita Valley's westside unincorporated communities -- Castaic, Val Verde and Stevenson Ranch.

The board will also look at semi-annual clean-up campaigns for the communities served by the landfill.

When the Board of Supervisors isn't looking into trash issues, it will be looking at the activities of the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County.

Fifth District Supervisor Michael Antonovich will request a report from the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County to examine the long-term plans of the museum.

"The Natural History Museum's core mission is to expose Los Angeles County residents to art and culture," said Tony Bell, Antonovich's spokesman.

"Looking at reports gives the supervisors a look at the museum's long-term plans and help the museum better serve the people."

Antonovich also wants to look at the Natural History Museum's proposed fundraising efforts.

The Board of Supervisors meets Tuesday at 9:30 a.m. at 500 West Temple Street in Los Angeles. The meeting is open to the public.
