L.A. City Hall reporter to chat with readers online

L.A. City Hall reporter Phil Willon will be chatting with readers Friday about the city's budget turmoil and the drastic steps Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa has proposed, including shutting down city services two days a week.

As Willon and colleagues Maeve Reston and David Zahniser have reported, a key piece of the budget puzzle is $73.5 million that the City Council wants the DWP to turn over, but which the agency has refused to do.

For details on the live chat, read the Readers' Representative Journal blog on latimes.com.

I HOPE THAT YOU MAKE PUBLICALLY KNOWN THE FACT THAT WE THE PEOPLE ARE TIRED OF UTILITY COMPANIES LIKE THOSE GREEDY PEOPLE WHO RUN THE D.W.P. AND THEIR COHORT OUR (SO CALLED) MAYOR RAISING OUR RATES EVERY TIME THEY WANT A NEW MERCEDES. WE ARE SICK AND TIRED OF THIS TYPE OF WRONG DOINGS BY OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS AND THE DEPARTMENT OF WATER AND POWER.

How embarrassing! This mayor has no clue how to run a city.
he needs to go and take Freeman with him. David Freeman is a old, old hold-over from the Riordan era which is where mini mayor found most of his staff.
