Report: LA spent $3.2 million on Jackson memorial

LOS ANGELES (AP) - November 16, 2009

The City Council's Public Safety Committee on Monday will review the report that shows Los Angeles spent $3.2 million on the July memorial at Staples Center, including $2 million in police overtime. It also says the memorial gave the local economy a $4 million boost.

The report says there was no ordinance in place in July that required Staples owner AEG to reimburse the city. However, City Attorney Carmen Trutanich (troo-TAN'-ich) is still pursuing reimbursement.

Jackson died June 25 in a rented Los Angeles mansion.
