The Los Angeles City Council usually does not meet on Mondays, but as the full group begins to discuss and consider next year's fiscal budget, which begins July 1st, a special meeting has been called to avoid mass layoffs. 1,761 jobs could be saved, but that depends on how things play out. 761 of them would be saved if unions accept more paycuts and up to 1,000 would be saved if by October 1st, revenues from leasing out city-owned parking garages and other revenue sources generate enough money.
