L.A. Olympic Bid

Hosted by  • 

The LA City Council is deciding whether Mayor Garcetti should be authorized to sign an agreement with the US Olympic Committee. In preparation for the council meeting, a 200-page “bid book” was made public. It includes budget details—the projected cost is $5.8 billion—and plans for venues and the Olympic Village. City analysts also released their own report, which raises questions about the bid.
