City of LA on Brink of Bankruptcy, in Conflict with DWP

Hosted by

Mayor Villaraigosa has threatened to implement a plan to close down all Los Angeles City departments except police and fire for two days a week, starting next Monday. It's all part of his dispute with the City Council over raising rates for the Department of Water and Power. This, after the DWP announced yesterday it would not contribute $73 million to the general fund.
