Mayor-elect Eric Garcetti was officially sworn in as mayor of Los Angeles late this afternoon in a small ceremony on the island at Echo Park Lake. Los Angeles City Clerk June Lagmay, who was present at the ceremony, said Garcetti will officially assume the role and duties of mayor beginning July 1.  After the ceremony concluded around 6 p.m., Garcetti, who held a child in his hands, and the others crossed the bridge back into the main part of the park, which reopened to the public only two weeks ago after being closed for a two-year-long clean up.

A pair of park police officers prevented people from crossing the bridge to the island, where perhaps about a dozen people, including Garcetti’s wife, Amy Wakeland, his father, Gil Garcetti, and Bishop Jon Bruno of the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles, were present when the mayor-elect took the oath.

A ceremonial swearing-in ceremony is scheduled to take place on Sunday during Garcetti’s public inaugural at  City Hall.
