City Controller Rick Tuttle described as "outrageous" a decision by the district attorney's office not to file criminal charges against a former top city employee who was accused of paying himself nearly $95,000 in overtime. Tuttle said he will ask Dist. Atty. Gil Garcetti to pursue forgery or fraud charges against James D. Bisetti, the former chief management analyst in the city's General Services Department, which oversees facilities, equipment and vehicles.

The Department of Water and Power, which has repeatedly come under fire in recent years for its spending practices, took another hit Wednesday with a report criticizing its overtime payments to top executives. The report by City Administrative Officer Keith Comrie said that Los Angeles city government as a whole needs to overhaul its system for dispensing overtime to its highest-paid executives. However, the report added, it must tread carefully to avoid legal challenges.

Los Angeles city officials have held a subordinate partly to blame for allowing a high-ranking city official to receive nearly $100,000 in overtime payments for work he did not perform--a scandal that led to a citywide review of overtime payments last year. The city Civil Service Commission has upheld a six-day suspension for Roger Huseby, who as top financial officer for the Department of General Services approved hundreds of hours of overtime for James D. Bisetti.

One Los Angeles firefighter logged so much overtime this year--more than doubling his $55,000 annual salary--that a superior speculated that he was "almost literally never home." At least five harbor police officers were on the clock so often that they made more than the chief of the 51-officer department. And dozens of refuse collectors pulled down up to $26,000 apiece in overtime, in large part because the city's new automated garbage trucks kept breaking down.

Welcome to the city of Los Angeles General Services Department--the bureaucracy within the bureaucracy. Or, some critics would say, the hole in the middle of the too-fat doughnut. This is the agency where the former budget chief improperly claimed $95,000 in overtime. This is the agency with a "hellish" record of sometimes delivering goods to other city departments months late. This is the agency where employees preoccupied with paperwork often miss the best buys on equipment and supplies.
