Pay Raises for City Officials

February 04, 2001

Re "Riordan OKs Hefty Raises for Top Officials," Jan. 30.

The pending pay raises for LAPD Chief Bernard C. Parks, Department of Water and Power head David Freeman and harbor department head Larry A. Keller . . . are a slap in the face to the citizens of Los Angeles.

It is especially so to the citizens of West Hills when the city will not install some requested center line striping because the cost would be prohibitive (about $100 for installation and $80 for upkeep), and the loss of sworn officers to other city areas.

The windfall for Parks would pay for a lot of overtime that the LAPD continues to complain that it does not have enough money for.
