LOS ANGELES, Calif.—The city’s police, fire and other departments are all in danger of being subjected to hefty budget cuts in response to voters’ rejection of a proposed half-cent sales tax, the president of the City Council said today.
Councilman Herb Wesson said that without the tax, things are “going to get ugly” for the police and other city departments.
“There will be some very hard choices,” he said. “Every department will be on the table. Nothing is sacred.”
