LADOT Proposes to Cut Full Funding from Bikeways Office
The LA County Bicycle Coalition sent out an "urgent alert" Saturday afternoon that was pretty shocking:
LADOT THREATENS TO CUT THE ENTIRE BIKEWAYS DEPARTMENT!! BIKE PROJECTS WOULD BE CUT!! Los Angeles is facing a perilous budget crisis. All city departments are being asked to submit plans on how they will cut spending, and LADOT have proposed to eliminate the entire Bikeways staff. Not just lay off some people, but cut it altogether.
