December Deadline?

New, 5 comments

As the city distracts itself from its real problems by arguing about Michael Jackson's funeral, City Councilman Jose Huizar tells the Downtown News that while he hopes to have new rents in place at El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historical Monument---downtown's Olvera Street tourist trap and a site of a long-documented fiscal drain---by December, "there is a procedure to follow." More via the News: "Before deciding what rents should be, Huizar said he wants to wait for El Pueblo General Manager Robert Andrade to respond to the audit with his own report. He said he is also awaiting a separate study by the department’s Budget and Operations Committee with recommendations on what the new rates should be." And more of his mealy-mouthed response: “It’s a process,” he added." “I have to take it all into consideration. I can’t commit to numbers right now because there are no numbers before me.” [Downtown News]
