LA Provides City Finance Information
Los Angeles — On Oct. 23, Los Angeles Controller Ron Galperin announced the launch of Control Panel LA, which posts a variety of data so that taxpayers can see where their money goes.
Much of the data, such as employee salaries, already are obtainable but this consolidates the information into a centralized location. Some information such as as background on lawsuits filed against the city and listing the names of workers adjacent to their salaries still is not available on the site.
Mayor Eric Garcetti is planning to launch a separate site for the public to weigh in on spending priorities, which he wants to incorporate information from the Department of Water and Power, the Port of Los Angeles and the Department of Airports on.
