Occupy Los Angeles protest at City Hall cost taxpayers $4M
DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- The Occupy Los Angeles protest at City Hall cost taxpayers more than $4 million, the City Council's budget committee was told on Monday.
The biggest chunk came from police and park personnel overtime during the two-month anti-Wall Street demonstration last fall.
Around 1,400 police officers helped evict the protesters on Dec. 1.
It took about $1 million to clean the park and repair its damaged lawn.
