LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Los Angeles City Council has voted to cut 761 jobs while continuing to seek concessions from the city employees' unions.
The council voted 11-4 Monday to cut childcare workers'
positions, shorten library hours, increase the cost of parking tickets and institute 26 furlough days for city workers.
The council rejected a proposal for closing an animal shelter in the San Fernando Valley and it preserved $1.3 million in funding that was scheduled to be cut from Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's anti-gang program.
The cuts are scheduled to go into effect July 1.
