Back in April, Mayor Jim Hahn responded to controversy over city spending on expensive but politically sensitive public relations contracts by promising to get rid of them. It was a reaction to criticism over Fleishman-Hillard's multi-million dollar deal with the Department of Water and Power and with other agencies. Hahn asked for a study, and on Monday he disclosed that seven small PR contracts were being terminated -- totaling just $267,000 in savings to the city. The Daily News has the story.
