A Los Angeles County judge last week invalidated a $150 million, 15-year exclusive contract Montebello officials awarded Athens in 2008.

The no-bid contract - which set off a storm of protests and sparked the recall of two councilmembers - was never properly executed with the mayor's signature and it also violated Proposition 218, a state measure requiring voter approval for local taxes, Judge James Chalfrant ruled.

Time to Sunset the Athens No Bid "evergreen contract".
Montebello is sueing the councilpersons who falsely executed the Montebello Athens Contract (after only a $500,000 bribe)
Who has a conflict of interest in West Covina?

This shouldn't suprise anyone that Touhey,Herfert &
Sotello voted for this 25 yr. extension with Athens.
Since they will benefit from it more then anyone!
When you attend a West Covina council meeting and have people speaking in favor of,people that you have never seen before at a council meeting or will ever see again! What does that say ?..It's
obivous..setup! These guys never tried to get the tax payers of West Covina any of their money back
instead they took it for themselves..They are
running this City literally into the "Dumpster"..
