In the campaign for mayor, Eric Garcetti spoke grandly about a city with plentiful summer jobs for low-income teens, a tunnel under the traffic-clogged Sepulveda Pass and even an end to homelessness. But a day after winning office, the mayor-elect faced some immediate and less lofty challenges: potentially bruising battles over employee salaries, police overtime pay and how to reverse cuts to ambulance staffing, sidewalk repairs and other basic city services. On Thursday, the City Council - a body that Garcetti will remain part of until June 30 - is set to decide whether and how to pay for a scheduled 5.5% raise for many city workers, a payout portrayed by the city's top financial advisor as a long-term budget buster.

A day after Mayor Eric Garcetti appealed to the public to help him secure changes to a proposed Department of Water and Power labor agreement, city negotiators said they had won additional cost-cutting concessions from the utility's main employee union. Under the latest proposed terms of a four-year labor pact, a pay hike of up to 4% in October 2016 would be reduced to about 2%, City Administrative Officer Miguel Santana, a high-level budget analyst, wrote in a confidential memo to the City Council.

Kabir, who lived in Pomona, is a naturalized U.S. citizen born in Afghanistan, federal authorities said.

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.
