Last Call – Proposed Fine Policy Comments

KHG’s Board is considering adopting a Fine Policy to address occasional members who refuse to follow association rules.

The proposed policy was developed over the course of two different Boards and in close collaboration with our attorneys.

The language of the proposed policy was mailed to members in March 2018, with instructions on how to submit comments and feedback on our website.


This post is to let members know that public comments will close at 5 pm on Saturday, June 2nd, to allow the Board enough time to review them prior to our June 12th Board meeting.

Curbside Bulky Item Pickup

Editor’s note: Reposting from LA Sanitation’s public agency post on NextDoor. Please note that bulky item pick up in Kentwood is on trash day and you need to submit your request several days ahead of time. Using the 311 app or submitting your request on the web is super easy. Please be a good neighbor and plan accordingly.

Did you know that your refuse bill already includes UNLIMITED bulky item pickups? You can schedule bulky item pick-up in a variety of ways:

  • Use the MyLA311 app
  • Call our 24-hour Customer Care Center at 1-800-773-2489
  • Call the City’s Hotline by dialing 3-1-1
  • Visit our website at www.lacitysan.org (LA Sanitation services only)
  • Visit the MyLA311 website at www.myla311.lacity.org (all City services)

We know that some residents like to place unwanted items outside in the hopes that someone in need may take it. While the gesture is very kind, it can quickly create blight in your neighborhood.

If your item could be used by someone else, we recommend calling a charity to pick up the item. If it cannot be used again, then we ask that you call us to schedule pickup BEFORE placing the item curbside.

Whether the item is yours and you want to schedule a pickup OR the item was illegally dumped in your neighborhood, please reach out and we would be happy to assist you.
