It’s Time to Pay Up… Mayor Villaraigosa Will Be Forced to Make Budget Cuts to Pay For Millions of Dollars in Damages From #Occupy LA Which He Supported
It’s time to pay the piper.
The cash-strapped city of LA will be forced to make more budget cuts to pay for damages by #Occupy LA protesters, a movement he supported.
They’re definitely not the tea party.
CBS Local reported:
The City of Los Angeles reportedly faces millions of dollars in expenses brought about by the Occupy LA movement.
City agencies have been ordered to calculate what was spent on the Occupy LA protests.
Repairs to City Hall’s lawn where the Occupy group set up camp on Oct. 1 will require an estimated $400,000. The police action to clear out the encampment on Nov. 30 cost more than $700,000.
Additional expenses are attributed to hauling away debris from the camp, and cleaning up graffiti that defaced City Hall marble walls and trees.
Mayor Villaraigosa says more budget cuts will be necessary to offset the costs.
