City Prepares to Cut Budget for Recreation and Parks

Hosted by

The City of Los Angeles has a $49 million deficit this year alone. Next year it'll be $400 million, and Chief Administrative Officer Miguel Santana has recommended a hiring freeze for the LAPD. Mayor Villaraigosa won't go for that, but is willing to make a run around the city charter to cut parks and recreation. We hear more from Jack Foley, Emeritus Professor of Urban Recreation at Cal State Northridge, and Noreen McClendon, Executive Director of Concerned Citizens of South Central Los Angeles.
