She broke it all down in an email:
The website is paid for utilizing funds from Supervisor Yaroslavsky's office budget. We have two part-time Web News Writers who are paid $3,000 a month each. We currently have a contract with a web developer for $3,000 a month. We also have a contract for hosting of the website that costs $450 a month (it would have cost us $1200 a month had we used the County's servers for this purpose). Special Project's Deputy Joel Sappell edits the site in addition to his many other duties. Finally, each of our staff members contributes ideas and, occasionally, copy and photos for the site.
