Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs chief Olga Garay has confirmed to KPCC that she’s moving forward with layoffs and job cuts that’ll slash the department’s workforce by almost half.

Almost half the department’s full-time positions — 33 out of 70 — will be gone through layoffs, early retirement, or unfilled vacancies, Garay said. Fifteen people who work for Cultural Affairs will lose their jobs - some in two weeks, others in July.
