Well, the hammer has been coming down. UPI is reporting that the City Manager, Assistance City Manager, and Police Chief, whose combined salaries topped $1.6 million per year, have resigned. The four of five City Council members have all agreed to a 90% reduction in their roughly $100,000 per year part time salaries - down to $673 per month. The fifth member only makes $8000 per year as it is. (I erroneously noted only 3 Council members in my previous blog entry, as these were the only ones noted on the Bell website) And the Mayor is now working for free and vows not to seek re-election in March, when his current term expires.
Meanwhile, Los Angeles County and State officials are investigating the salaries to determine if laws were broken.
