Los Angeles: The City of Fees

Hosted by

The City of Los Angeles has furloughed some workers, laid off others and cut services to get rid of a deficit once set at $450 million. At the same time, it's failed to collect some $541 million in unpaid debt. Billing problems have turned up in audits by the elected City Controller, Wendy Greuel, and now the City Council has created a new job, Inspector General of Collections. We hear from Greuel and from the only council member to vote against the new position, Dennis Zine from the San Fernando Valley.
