Mayor Eric Garcetti reverses course on Building & Safety, Planning Departments Merger.
Mayor Garcetti shows reasoned leadership on reversing previous opinion/ vote on merger.
Great Bloggin Hump Day to all in the local political cybersphere as we start this A.M. in commending Mayor Garcetti for reversing course.
Usually, reversing course on a policy issue is derided from failures in the implementation (think the debacle that is Nobamacare), but in the case of the proposed merger of the Building & Safety and Planning Departments, initiated by former Mayor Antonio Villar, hindsight along with foresight, prevented a policy FUBAR waiting to happen.
Pasternak (bankruptcy overseer) has accused ADI of dramatically inflating its bills at various development projects, many of them in the city's poorest neighborhoods. Many were also plagued by poor construction or substandard materials, he said.
....... no wonder why the city was stonewalling.
