Local Forum on City Budget Crisis

The city – and state, for that matter – are scavenging for coins between the sofa cushions. Thousands of layoffs, service cutbacks and the elimination and consolidation of city departments have been announced or implemented. How does it affect everyday Angelenos? A Harbor Area community forum next Saturday will go beyond the headlines to reveal the nuts and bolts and real-life impact of the financial crisis. L.A. City Councilman Bernard Parks, chair of the Budget Committee, will be joined by union leader Julie Butcher and neighborhood council members at the public forum, taking place on Feb. 27 at 9:30 a.m. at Rolling Hills Preparatory School, Palos Verdes Drive North west of Gaffey Street. View the flyer for more information.
