Still facing a $100-million budget shortfall, the City Council has given the go-ahead to cut the pay of 800 more employees, imposing a 5% reduction for city workers who do not belong to a union. Looking to save $2 million, the council agreed to take four hours of pay out of the 80-hour paychecks of department heads, policy analysts, human resources employees and aides to council members, according to a memo issued Monday by City Administrative Officer Miguel Santana, the city's top budget official.

The Los Angeles City Council reversed course and voted Friday to nix part of a plan that city officials said could have inadvertently boosted the pay of top city managers. The council had voted unanimously Wednesday for a salary plan to cover city workers who aren't unionized. A document prepared for the council suggested that under the plan, dozens of city department heads would get a series of pay increases over the next 15 months. Council President Herb Wesson said in a statement Wednesday that City Administrative Officer Miguel Santana had unintentionally included general managers in the document, which “was never our intent.” Wesson spokesman Ed Johnson said that if Mayor Eric Garcetti had signed off on the plan, raises would have automatically been granted to every department head.

A Los Angeles County task force found an estimated $500,000 worth of antibiotics and other medications Thursday during a raid at the Lynwood home of a woman suspected of operating an unlicensed medical clinic. The woman, whose name was not released, was cited with a misdemeanor charge of selling prescription medicine without a license. She could be charged with a felony if authorities find restricted drugs, such as Valium or codeine.

Los Angeles city finances have taken a positive turn thanks to tightened fiscal policies and an improving housing market, the city's chief budget analyst said. A structural deficit of $327 million projected for 2014 has been revised downward to between $153 million and $242 million, according to a budget update released Thursday by City Administrative Officer Miguel Santana. Santana attributed the improved numbers to agreements that hold down salary costs and trim pension benefits for new employees.

The Los Angeles City Council voted Tuesday to place a measure on the ballot in June -- during the state's primary election -- that would create a separate public health department if passed.  The council vote consolidated the ballot initiative with the state primary election. Even as the initiative moves forward, the city is considering filing a lawsuit over its validity. The L.A.-based AIDS Healthcare Foundation is leading the campaign for the new department and gathered enough signatures for the measure to be placed on the ballot. President Michael Weinstein said that the L.A. County Department of Public Health is overly bureaucratic and ineffective and that a smaller city-run department would do a better job. Weinstein's group won passage last year of an initiative that required adult-film actors to wear condoms during production.

A new report finds Occupy Los Angeles cost city taxpayers nearly $5 million, with the bulk of the money spent on policing the protest. The report presented Friday by City Administrative Officer Miguel Santana says the Los Angeles Police Department spent $1.3 million monitoring protesters during the course of their two-month demonstration outside City Hall, and another $1.3 million evicting them. An additional $500,000 was spent by the Office of Public Safety, whose security officers protect city property, according to the report.

After a week of setbacks, Los Angeles City Atty. Carmen Trutanich got a Halloween treat Wednesday from the City Council, which voted to delay action on a proposed ballot measure that could strip his office of significant legal duties. Lawmakers said a motion made last week by Councilman Paul Krekorian to place the measure on the March primary ballot needed more review. On a 12-3 vote, the council agreed to table the proposal for two weeks while Krekorian and Councilman Paul Koretz meet with Trutanich and his staff to seek an agreement that could avoid a ballot measure.

Some Los Angeles city workers criticized a move to cut doctors affiliated with Cedars-Sinai and UCLA from an employee health plan, and they urged city leaders to restore access to those physicians. The outpouring of criticism came at a city meeting Friday after the cash-strapped city opted for the slimmer network of medical providers from Anthem Blue Cross, in part to save $7.6 million on health premiums next year. The city estimates that 2,200 city workers and their dependents may lose access to their doctors under these health contracts, which cover about 60,000 people overall.
