Hymon working in City Hall again

Steve Hymon, who covered the City Hall beat (and later transportation as the Bottleneck blogger) for the Los Angeles Times, is back again, at least virtually. This time, he's doing some contract work for Councilman Richard Alarcon, who told me today that Hymon will help edit into shape a draft of the Master Plan to End Poverty in Los Angeles. The City Council agenda for yesterday asked approval for a personal services contract covering the period June 22 to Sept. 15 for an amount not to exceed $10,000, using available funds in the Council Office Budget.
