Piled higher and deeper

This letter was sent to Mayor Walt Keller.

On Friday night, I took some out-of-town relatives to the Malibu Lagoon to view the birds. I had to use one of the portable toilets and, fortunately, what I had to do did not require me to sit down. The solid waste was up to within a couple of inches of the toilet seat. I told the lifeguard, who was just closing up the tower, about the disgusting condition of the outhouse and he nodded his head and replied that he was well aware of the situation. He told me that the maintenance of the facilities was the responsibility of the Department of State Parks.

Since you and the others on the council seem so adamant about preserving Malibu’s environment I would suggest that you take a walk, investigate the situation yourselves then put some heavy pressure on the Parks Department to do what it is supposed to do. I think that this is almost as important as some of the other things you kick around in meetings.
