Ten employees at the Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety have been fired for wrongdoing so far this year, five times the number who lost their jobs for such a reason over the last decade, the agency's top executive said. Although the department is the subject of an FBI bribery sting, six of the 10 workers were terminated following an investigation into the falsification of time cards, said Robert "Bud" Ovrom, the department's general manager. Ovrom said five clerks and a supervisor were fired earlier this year after a bureau chief showed up at the department's Van Nuys office shortly after 7 a.m. one day and found some of them missing.
