                Budget Highlights
Proposes Reserve Fund of $177 million (4% of General Fund)
Continues Police Hiring to Attrition (9,963 officers)
Expands Summer Night Lights Program from 24 Park Sites to 32 Sites
Maintains Full Funding for Citywide Gang Reduction and Youth
Development Services
Restores Citywide Library Hours (6 days of service)
Provides 735 Miles of Street Preservation
Provides Funding for 50,000 new pothole repairs, a 20% increase from the
prior year (from 250,000 to 300,000)
Maintains Graffiti Abatement Program and Neighborhood Council
program with minimal funding reduction (6.5% and 10%, respectively)
Provides Full Funding for Emergency Management
Continues Operations at 7 Animal Shelters Citywide
Maintains Senior Meals Program
Fire Deployment Plan
       $53.7 M
The new LAFD Deployment Plan replaces the Modified Coverage Plan (MCP) that has
been in place since 2009.
The Plan, developed using new deployment software, utilizes Fire Department dispatch
data to model resource coverage based on response times, call frequency and incident types
with each fire station district.
This data-driven approach replaces the current rotating resource closures of the MCP with
Fire company closures, redeployments, realignment of resources and flex staffing that re-
focuses emergency response to match the makeup and distribution of emergency call loads.
    Example: Reduces deployment of ladder trucks in South Los Angeles–which has few structures
    taller than three stories–and replaces them with additional ambulances to meet higher needs for
    emergency medical services
The Plan redeploys 318 Sworn Firefighters and deletes these position authorities over three
No Firefighters will be laid off
    Police Sworn Salary and
     Overtime Reductions
            $100 M
The Mayor’s Proposed FY2011-12 Budget:
    Maintains police hiring to attrition (9,963 Officers)
    Assumes $80M in overtime savings through
    management of compensated time off and
    deployment of sworn resources.
    Includes $20M in targeted savings through
    operational efficiencies
    Deletes 105 vacant civilian positions
    Provides funding for phase II of in-car video
  Civilian Furloughs
        $93.4 M
The City’s long-term costs for pensions and healthcare are unsustainable.
Employees must begin to contribute towards a greater share of these costs to
ensure that benefits are available for current and future employees.
A tentative labor agreement has been negotiated with the Coalition of LA City
Unions, which includes an employee contribution of 4% of pay for retiree
health benefits.
The Agreement is pending ratification by union members and final approval by
the City Council.
Absent any final agreements, furloughs have been included in the 2011-12
Proposed Budget as a fiscally responsible measure to balance the budget (26
days for employees that will not receive cost of living increases and 36 days for
employees that are scheduled to receive cost of living increases).
