LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles city leaders are looking into claims that some city street crews were taking extended breaks on the job instead of repairing potholes and sidewalks.

The Los Angeles Times reports that the city council last week ordered an investigation following a KCBS-TV report claiming that workers only spend a few hours of their shifts fixing streets.

City leaders are concerned because they want to ask residents to vote in November for a new half-cent sales tax for street repairs.

Bureau of Street Services director Nazario Sauceda told the council that he is launching an investigation and has already put together a list of allegations to determine which rules may have been broken if the claims are proven true.

Sauceda told the council that possible discipline could range from a simple notice to correct to termination.
