Around the Halls: Layoffs, Redevelopment Funds and Parking Garages
DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES — Today is Monday, January 24, and talk of layoffs, the future of redevelopment funds and the CRA's contribution to the parking garage for the Broad museum all come to City Hall this week.
MONDAY: Budget & Finance committee meets, as does the ad-hoc River committee.
Layoffs are the topic of the day in budget talks, which come to Budget & Finance as CF 10-0139-S2. The proposal presented by the CAO's office called for more furloughs and other cutbacks.
TUESDAY: Council and three committees are in session.
The Little Tokyo BID gets reconfirmed in Council via CF 10-1958. The 2011 year will be the BID's eighth operating period.
The $930-million deal between the City and the CRA to hand over hundreds of the redevelopment agency's projects comes back to Council as CF 11-0086. It was continued last week.
WEDNESDAY: Council returns, again with three committees.
Midnight Mission would get $90,000 to operate a courtyard case management program under CF 10-1982, which heads to Housing, Community and Economic Development.
The pair of motions regarding AEG's NFL stadium proposal that were at Trade, Commerce and Tourism last week head before Council. CF 11-0020 asks for a report back on the Convention Center RFP, while CF 11-0023 instructs the CLA's office to build a working group to engage AEG in formal discussions on the proposal. The committee recommendations also instruct the CLA to retain an outside entity to conduct a review of the company's financial plan and guarantee promise on the Convention Center bonds.
CRA's contribution to the parking garage for The Broad will be raised to $52 million via CF 10-1256, an item that made no stops in committee after Thursday's rushed CRA board approval.
