City Hall office shuffle

City Council President Eric Garcetti grabs Wendy Greuel's old suite on the fourth floor where they keep the elected inmates. Same square footage but more windows, says Rick Orlov at The Sausage Factory. Richard Alarcon claimed Garcetti's old digs, newcomer Paul Koretz took the space vacated July 1 by Jack Weiss, and the eventual winner of the 2nd district brouhaha will find Alarcon's former space waiting.

City Hall note: Jerry Decter, the canyons neighborhood activist who with his wife Betty Decter helped dislodge councilmen James Potter and Louis Nowell from office in the 1970s, died last month at age 85.
