A proposed contract for rents on Olvera Street, naming of an Italian Museum, a "Film Friendly LA" discount card and the City budget are on the agendas this week at City Hall.

MONDAY: Energy and the Environment committee meets, as does Budget and Finance committee in a joint session with Arts, Parks, Health and Aging and Audits and Governmental Efficiency.

A report on proposed rents at Olvera Street is CF 11-0449, a joint item between Budget and Finance and Arts, Parks, Health and Aging. The City and merchants at the complex have been engaged in a long and complicated back and forth over rents and terms.

TUESDAY: Council meets, as do four committees.

Arts, Parks, Health and Aging will discuss how the Mayor's proposed budget for 2011-2012 will effect El Pueblo, the library system and the Department of Recreation and Parks.

Also up is CF 10-1885, a motion to name a museum at El Pueblo's Italian Hall after Joseph R. Cerrell.

Richard Alarcon wants the city to create a "Film Friendly LA" card that would offer discounts at local merchants to working casts and crews as part of an incentive to keep filming in L.A. The motion, CF 11-0461, goes to his Jobs and Business Development committee.

WEDNESDAY: Council and two committees meet.

Filming without a permit would be a misdemeanor offense under CF 10-1788, which goes to Council.

Budget and Finance committee starts its marathon sessions to consider the 2011-2012 budget. Sessions are scheduled to run through May 10, and a schedule of department presentations can be found online (PDF).
