  2. Los Angeles now spending more on Wall Street fees than on maintaining roads

    Los Angeles councilman Paul Koretz has called for banks NY Mellon and Dexia to return $65 million in "unfair profits and termination payments" they received between 2008 and 2014.

Koretz says he may push the city to take punitive action against the financial institutions involved if they do not renegotiate the deal.
