No City manager should be paid more than $80,000.00 a year in this small city of Hemet.... We cannot afford to squander our taxes on a city manager making that much more than the rest of the citizens of this small retirement town..... Then the city manager has a assistant making almost as much as the city manager. Then through in benifits and the payout for this city manager position is money needs to be spent on police and fire dept..... And why do we need to sell off our trash co.? Well to pay for the laughable city officales

The only way for this city To recover is to fund police services and rezone the trashy areas for senior only safe and affordable housing. The high crime areas should be patroled 24 hours a day. The city needs to follow up on getting rid of blight!
