Buscaino Outlines Proposed Tax Increase to Fix Broken Streets and Sidewalks

At a public hearing at Los Angeles City Hall last Wednesday, Councilmembers Joe Buscaino and Mitchell Englander outlined a proposed sales tax increase that would pay for a backlog of badly needed repairs to broken streets and sidewalks throughout the city. The hearing came weeks after a top city analyst recommended a half-percent sales tax increase to generate $4.5 billion to help pay for the repair of 8,700 lane miles of streets in D or F condition and 4,600 miles of broken sidewalks in the city. The proposed tax hike could go before voters this November.
