Occupy LA Costs
Occupy Los Angeles cost city taxpayers $4.7 million, with most of the money spent on policing last year’s protests outside City Hall.
The taxpayers’ tab for Occupy L.A. has reached an estimated $2.3 million, and officials say there’s more to come. The new figures have sparked a debate at City Hall about who’s to blame for the costs, and whether it was really necessary to spend all that money.
The City of Los Angeles reportedly faces millions of dollars in expenses brought about by the Occupy LA movement.
