Ambulance billing outsourcing passed

City Council has passed the outsourcing of LAFD ambulance billing, the vote was 9-5, with no loss of jobs promised.

It appears City Council is slowly moving toward the kinds of smart fiscal decisions they should have been making a decade ago by outsourcing non-core services when it makes financial sense.

But who knows how long the fiscal common sense will last?  Anyone want to start an office pool? I'll take October - when cash flow comes to a screeching halt.
