LAOBSERVED - Regarding those signs at the Chatsworth Metrolink station marking off a couple of primo parking spots for the local council district staff, spotted last weekend. They are outdated, says Matt Meyerhoff, the communications director for Councilman Mitchell Englander. And never were a perk related to the trains.
According to Meyerhoff, the signs were posted back when Councilman Greig Smith had a satellite field office in the train depot.
