Neighborhood Council Prez won't be charged

It turns out Echo Park's Neighborhood Council president won't join the ranks of violent offenders enjoying three hots and a cot. The City Attorney's office wrote Jose Sigala on Jan. 13 that a hearing was held in the June case and no charges would be filed. If you didn't happen to be there in June: Neighborhood activist Luiza Mavropoulos accused Sigala of tackling her. The Eastsider reported.

Meanwhile, it's a time of change for the council: a deadline passed last week to file if you wanted to run for a seat on the colorful council. A background in opera singing and boxing was required. And the body now has an actual place of its own: the former LAPD stop-in shop on EP Avenue at the Bank of America. Too bad the council and the LAPD can't share the space. The council has not yet moved into the storefront.

The council will have its general meeting this evening at 6:30 p.m. at St. Paul Cathedral Center, Grand Hall, 840 N. Echo Park Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90026.
