Measures that would create an elected Los Angeles County executive and expand the Board of Supervisors to as many as nine members were approved Tuesday for placement on the November ballot. In a 3-2 vote, the supervisors approved the proposed charter amendment, which would separate county government into executive and legislative branches for the first time.

The Board of Supervisors has just voted to close 10 of her libraries and County Librarian Sandra Reuben is nearly beside herself with joy. She believes she has won a great victory. Several colleagues gathered in the board hearing room think so too. They say, "Congratulations." Reuben beams back, "Thank you!" The victory is this: The board has cut only $10 million from the library budget. Reuben got back $1 million she thought she would lose.

Dist. Atty. Gil Garcetti's inaugural speech Monday raised hopes that we now have a D.A. who'll earn his pay. I'm speaking of a statement that took only a couple of seconds, one of several pledges he made to a large audience in the Board of Supervisors hearing room. But if Garcetti keeps his word, Los Angeles County won't be the same. For he said he plans to prosecute misconduct in office by public officials. Such a pledge shouldn't be news.

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, moving to keep a closer eye on the activities of the county's powerful chief administrative officer, voted Tuesday to increase oversight of fund transfers within county departments. The action comes following a grand jury report that is highly critical of CAO Richard B. Dixon, who has announced that he will retire by the end of the year.

News of runaway expense accounts at the Los Angeles County Transportation Commission is more than a story of public servants living the good life at taxpayers' expense. The story, by Times reporter Jane Fritsch, shows what can happen in the Southland's shadowy form of government, where tremendous power is exercised by a bunch of little-known, extremely powerful public agencies that operate with little public accountability.

In one of those moves that tends to raise more questions than it answers, a motion to make departing Supervisor Kenneth Hahn a "supervisor emeritus" was quietly withdrawn from consideration by the County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday.

A draft of a long-awaited report on Los Angeles County's controversial pension program--which the Board of Supervisors has delayed acting on until after the Nov. 3 election--has concluded that the supervisors failed to control bureaucrats who spent $265 million on extraordinary retirement benefits.

Removing the last obstacle to a ballot measure to expand the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors from five to nine members, the Department of Justice said Tuesday that it would not oppose placing the proposed charter amendment on the November ballot. County officials said federal approval was required under the terms of a judgment in a voting-rights lawsuit filed by the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund and other Latino groups.

After months of debate, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to let the voters decide whether to expand the board. On a 3-2 vote, with Supervisors Deane Dana and Mike Antonovich dissenting, the board approved including two expansion plans on the November ballot. They would increase the number of supervisorial districts from five to either seven or nine members. The proposals still must be reviewed by the U.S. Department of Justice before they can be placed on the ballot.
