Los Angeles City Councilman Mike Feuer recommended Wednesday establishing a nonemergency phone number for the police and fire departments to reduce the number of 911 calls. Under his proposal, residents throughout the city would be able to dial 311 to report incidents that are not life threatening, such as barking dogs, graffiti, illegal dumping and car burglaries. The calls would be answered by an existing bank of operators who would decide the appropriate police response.

More than 100 pot shops have shut down since Los Angeles started enforcing its new rules restricting medical marijuana dispensaries, City Atty. Mike Feuer announced Monday. Feuer said he was now stepping up that work, hiring two new attorneys who would exclusively tackle prosecutions under Proposition D, the measure passed by voters last spring. Staffers are also focusing more attention on real estate professionals and landlords renting space to marijuana dispensaries, providing them with a new brochure that warns of steep fines and jail time for breaking the rules.

Re "Valley Glen Name-Change Proposal," Jan. 18. A letter from Abigail Spiegel appeared in reference to the issue of the Valley Glen name change, and noted Councilman [Mike] Feuer's supposed lack of effort in our area of the Valley. I am a member of the Livable Neighborhoods Council (LNC). However, I am writing as a resident of the area defined as Valley Glen. I have lived in the Valley since 1965, and I can tell you that this councilman is one of the most active I have ever seen.

Los Angeles City Councilwoman Nury Martinez and City Atty. Mike Feuer called Monday for a crackdown on prostitution in two parts of the San Fernando Valley. Under a plan Martinez will submit to her council colleagues Friday, the city would add two police patrols, step up enforcement of the people who commit and arrange the crimes, and set up a program to divert prostitutes as young as 12 from a life on the streets. The added patrols, at a cost of up to $300,000, will target portions of Lankershim and Sepulveda boulevards, Martinez said.

Re "Measure to Fingerprint Gun Buyers Advances," Jan. 23: How typical of the National Rifle Assn. to oppose a common-sense measure such as L.A. Councilman Mike Feuer's proposal to fingerprint gun buyers! This law would enable prosecutors to go after convicted felons who try to buy guns. But Steve Helsley of the NRA says that "there has never been any inclination to prosecute violators" who try to obtain firearms despite being prohibited persons. Enforcement of existing laws requires the means to enforce the existing laws--and by fingerprinting gun buyers, prosecutors are given the means to prove a prohibited person attempted to buy a gun. They can then file cases against these criminals to put them behind bars, where they belong.

"Apartments Given a Reprieve," April 27. Councilman [Mike] Feuer's punitive effort to block redevelopment of the Chase Knolls apartments seems typical of his leadership style. Having ascended his soapbox, Feuer informs us that because this post-war, tract-style apartment cluster has endured past its 50th anniversary, it qualifies as an [historic] site. If the site was worth preserving, the councilman should have acted sooner to revoke the current zoning that permits the property to accommodate more than 300 units.

Once again, some of our politicians have opted for the 30-second sound bite solution to a greater problem they have no clue how to solve. I'm referring to the proposal to make ammunition buyers fill out a form and leave a fingerprint at the time of purchase ("Gun Control Backers Set Sights on Bullets," May 27). I have tried but I can find no way this will reduce the gun violence on our streets. It won't reduce the purchases of bullets. Anyone with a criminal record can just have a friend without a record buy the bullets.

It's the end of the run for Antonio Villaraigosa. Not as mayor - he serves through June 30 - but as the only candidate in Los Angeles' term-limit era ever to have ousted an incumbent running for re-election. The departing mayor must now share his incumbent-slayer credentials with Mike Feuer, who on Tuesday unseated one-term City Attorney Carmen Trutanich . Term limits took hold in Los Angeles in 1993, when voters adopted a measure to restrict every city elected official to two four-year terms.

Each of the four candidates for the post of Los Angeles city attorney offers unique experience and a vision for the office, but The Times endorses Mike Feuer in the April 10 primary. A City Council member since 1995 and formerly the director of a public interest law firm, Feuer would bring to the city attorney's office a track record of problem-solving, solid leadership and management experience, as well as creative ideas to improve the quality of urban life.

A dozen years after he left the Los Angeles City Council, Mike Feuer is back in L.A.'s civic life, this time in City Hall East, as the newly elected city attorney. His several careers are all of a piece: running the low-income legal service group Bet Tzedek; half a dozen years in the Assembly, where he made his mark as a forceful and adroit legislator. His wife is a judge, his two kids are Yalies - he's a Harvard Law grad - and his politics are personal. You were elected on the same ballot that saw voters restrict marijuana dispensaries.

A lawsuit alleging that City Atty.-elect Mike Feuer manipulated ethics laws to financially benefit his campaign has been thrown out of court. The action had been filed by a supporter of Feuer's rival, Carmen Trutanich. Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Richard Rico found meritless the claims by plaintiff Laura Lake that Feuer intentionally delayed paying campaign consultant John Shallman in order to qualify for taxpayer-provided matching funds. The suit, filed in the midst of the campaign, named both Feuer and Shallman as defendants.

California Gov. Jerry Brown has weighed in on the bitter battle for the Los Angeles city attorney post in next week's election. In a recorded phone message to city voters, the governor says that City Atty. Carmen Trutanich's attacks on challenger Mike Feuer are ”misleading.” The Feuer campaign said it is paying to spread the governor's recorded message to voters “all across Los Angeles” on Wednesday. At issue is a mailer the Trutanich campaign sent attacking Feuer for his support, while he was in the state Assembly, of controversial legislation that transferred some state felons to county jails or probation supervision to comply with court orders to relieve overcrowding in state prisons.
