At City Hall today: Traffic, Parking & The Iraq War

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

CityWatch is reporting that today is quite a busy day at 200 N. Main St. Here are some highlights for the mayor and city council:

  • "The Mayor and the Governor open the action with the announcement at a 9:30 media conference that LA will receive $150 million to pay for synchronizing every traffic light in the city. The funding is LA’s share of the $250 billion transportation bond passed by voters in 2006."
  • "With time running out for the Council to take action, former Transportation GM Gloria Jeff’s appeal of her firing by the Mayor is back on the calendar. Insiders say: look for a deal."
  • "A Bill Rosendahl resolution to pull US troops out of Iraq and a report on the status of LA’s bridges and tunnels."
  • "...the PLUM [Planning and Land Use committee] folks are due to take up the Planning Commissions’ draft resolution on ‘reduced parking.’ Another hot button subject among Angelenos. (PLUM Committee is scheduled for 2 p.m. in Room 350 at City Hall.)"
