The fight over the LATC, an ordinance that would require rehiring hotel workers, wine sales at 5th and Spring and parking plans are among the items on agendas at City Hall this week.

MONDAY: Joint meetings are all the rage, as Public Safety welcomes Budget & Finance committee for one item and Budget & Finance holds a session with Information Technology and Government Affairs.

A closed-session update on mediation and settlement talks between the Latino Museum and the Latino Theatre Company will be given in the latter joint session under CF 10-0830. The pair have been battling in the courts since June of 2009 over disagreements related to management of the Los Angeles Theatre Center on Spring Street.

TUESDAY: Council meets, as do five committees.

Hotels that lay off workers due to construction or remodeling would be required to recall them under CF 10-1716, which returns to Council three months after the body pushed it back to committee for more work.

WEDNESDAY: Council and three committees meet.

Buzz Wine Beer Shop at 5th and Spring goes to Council for a finding of "public convenience or necessity" under CF 11-0330. The 1,700-square-foot shop will offer off-site sales and on-site tastings.

The city's five-year plan for parking goes forward to Council as CF 10-0596. The plan lays out expenditures for the Special Parking Revenue Fund.

Parking pricing at the Convention Center will become more flexible under CF 10-1545, which returns to Council in ordinance form. The new language allows the Convention Center to set parking prices based on demand.
