Threats this week by Los Angeles' powerful municipal utility to withhold $73 million from the treasury helped reveal a city that has become increasingly dependent on indirect and onetime sources of revenue to pay its bills. Combined with the worst economic decline since the Depression, those dwindling sources of cash have forced city officials to confront a problem they have long tried to ignore -- a steady growth of the city payroll for the last decade. The city's core 35,000-member workforce increased by at least 3,000 between 2000 and 2009.

Cuts to ambulance service are on hold pending further study, but layoffs of child-care workers at city parks are moving forward. Library hours and service days are on the chopping block. DASH bus service may be cut back. City departments monitoring community tensions, advocating for the disabled and serving neighborhood councils are doomed. Some 4,000 employees are soon to be removed from the payroll. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and the Los Angeles City Council have spent the last month and a half looking for ways to make ends meet during the current budget crisis by increasing collections, leasing assets, raising fees and seeking efficiencies.

Concerned that a worsening economy could take a bite out of the county budget, Los Angeles supervisors voted Tuesday to cut back on hiring nonessential employees. The county government, the region's largest employer, has had a hiring freeze since its brush with bankruptcy in 1995. But during the economic boom, it allowed departments to hire additional staff. The county has added nearly 10,000 workers since the mid-1990s.

Seeking to close the gap in next year's budget, the Los Angeles school board voted Thursday to make an additional $44.3 million in cuts. That means the board has trimmed about $471 million of the $500 million it must cut because of a projected shortfall in state funding. Thursday's cuts included eliminating about 10 administrative jobs, reducing transportation costs for special education and shifting some general fund costs to bond measures.

The Look: This fall, women who dress like English dandies ready for a horseback ride will be right in fashion. Three-piece suits, white shirts with extra-long collars and neat little neckties are the way to go. And don't forget the top hat. Do It Big: Last spring, Milan-based Domenco Dolce and Stefano Gabbana showed the dandy look with a '70s Mod spin. One pantsuit from their new collection has a long, body-contoured riding jacket with romantic puff sleeves.
