Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti unveiled his yearly budget in April where he promised major progress in the reconstruction of the city’s worst roads.
The Mayor proposed a spending plan that calls for the city to collect $70.7 million in street damage restoration fees in 2018-19. But that is not the only challenge the city is facing. Garcetti signed an executive directive last month to speed up a program to place temporary homeless shelters across the city to address an increasingly pressing homeless crisis.
Larry sits down with Mayor Garcetti to discuss the challenges with placing such shelters along with a range of other topics, from housing for lower income residents and pension fund obligations to how the Mayor picked up new LAPD Chief Michel Moore.
