Councilwoman Calls For LA Stadium Talks With AEG

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A Los Angeles councilwoman is calling on officials to begin discussions with the developers who have publicly proposed building an NFL stadium in her district.

Jan Perry’s motion presented Wednesday to the council’s Trade, Commerce and Tourism Committee represents the city’s first open attempt to directly engage sports and entertainment firm AEG on its
proposal to replace part of the city’s convention center complex with a stadium.

Perry says in the motion that AEG’s plan could help the city, but that the firm must submit an environmental study of the project as soon as possible so its benefits can be balanced against potential risks.

She’s also asking for city legal staff to engage AEG in formal discussions about the proposal.

Messages left with Perry and AEG were not returned.

    If she is the city controller, how about cleaning up how the LAFD spends their money. How in the hell do you get a fire department in a $530 million deficit. People need to start gettting fired for this. How about opening all the books like the city of Bell. I guarantee you will find some thievery. The first person I would look at is that dirty two-inch turd hispanic, Antonio Villaraigosa. Doesn’t the city have any other priorities? How about charging people $10 for callking 911 for the stupidest things? The LAFD is not a taxi service. But according to the two-inch turd chiefs, it is.
