LOS ANGELES --The cash-strapped city of Los Angeles may no longer be willing to foot the bill for events such as the Academy Awards or Farmers Market. The city has set aside $2.5 million to pay for traffic and crowd control services during large events, such as the Oscars and parades. But some city leaders, including the mayor, say organizers should pay those costs, and not the city.
Others argue the events generate revenue for the city.
The vote has been pushed over until September.
