The latest proposal would require hotels near city-owned Los Angeles International Airport to pay wages of $9.39 an hour with health benefits or $10.64 an hour without benefits by July 1. In return, the city promised to make $1 million in streetscape improvements, spend $50,000 on marketing, and study other ways to improve the area, such as building a conference center. The hotels and business community have been upset with the proposal, which extends the concept of a living wage beyond firms that contract directly with the city. However, officials have argued that the hotels benefit by their proximity to LAX and the city’s investments in the area. firstname.lastname@example.org (213) 978-0390160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

He also noted that the law prohibits adoption of a law with only minor changes – which he contends is the case with the latest proposal. “It may be natural to believe that simply by adding features, one can change the essence of an ordinance, but not in the referendum process,” Kieffer said. But Richard McCracken, an attorney working with the Los Angeles Alliance for a New Economy in support of the proposal, disputed Kieffer’s assertions. “Los Angeles is a charter city and the provisions he is discussing do not apply,” McCracken said. “Los Angeles is able to make its own regulations on issues like this.” Garcetti said he had no comment on the letter, which will be referred to the City Attorney’s Office for review. An attorney representing LAX-area hotels said Friday that a newly crafted “living-wage” ordinance impacting hotel workers was simply a ruse by the City Council to avert a costly election on the original plan. Attorney George Kieffer, whose firm represents several of the dozen hotels along the Century Boulevard corridor, released a four-page letter he wrote to council President Eric Garcetti objecting to the proposed ordinance. The compromise was released Thursday and will be considered by the council next week. “The law is clear that, where a qualified referendum petition has been submitted to the City Council and the City Council have voted to repeal the ordinance, the City Council may not simply once again adopt the original ordinance,” Kieffer’s letter said.
PASADENA – Sgt. Randy Rousseau, a 17-year veteran of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, died May 2 after what family and friends called a courageous three-year battle with leukemia. He was 44. “It’s very hard to lose someone you grew up with,” said Deputy Keith Gibbons, 43, Rousseau’s longtime friend and partner. “We went through everything together from the time we were rookie cops up through the ranks.” Rousseau went in and out of remission three times before the disease, acute lymphocytic leukemia, which is most often found in children, claimed his life May 2, Gibbons said. He left active duty a second time after being transferred from his post at the Pitchess Detention Center to Crescenta Valley Station to treat the cancer about a year ago, Lt. Mike Bornman said. “You could see that he was hurting at times,” said Bornman, referring to the disease’s effect on Rousseau, “but he never complained. He fought like hell to live. It was tragic.” Most recently, he appeared to be recovering successfully from a bone marrow transplant undertaken at the City of Hope on Dec. 13, Gibbons said. “The headaches came back and became more acute for about a week before he slipped into a coma,” Gibbons said. “He never woke up.” Rousseau, who lived in unincorporated southeast Pasadena on Blanche Street, worked the graveyard shift with Gibbons at the sheriff’s Altadena Station from 1990 through 1993, among other assignments, Gibbons said. “He was an outstanding officer,” Gibbons said, noting his partner’s work on a mid-1990s case solved largely by Rousseau in which a father had murdered, then buried, two young sons. “The man’s 9-year-old son trusted Randy enough that he led him to a grave,” he said. About 300 sworn officers and civilian colleagues from around the region attended Rousseau’s service, according to Bornman. The sergeant leaves his wife Rebecca, 38, and three sons, Rory, 14, Jacob, 10, Joseph, 6. Gibbons said due to the great outpouring of financial support from the community since he was diagnosed,the Rousseau family asked that in lieu of flowers,donations be made to the Sheriff’s Relief Foundation, Survivors and Dependents Fund. email@example.com (626) 578-6300 Ext. 4461160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
