That’s a good question and I too would be interested in learning how Hemet pays their employees salary. And how much long can it continue.
Hemet can no longer be called a retirement community.
Because just before the economy took a dive big new family homes were built and younger families did move into the area.
First you have to know which employee group your talking about. You have general fund, Fire, Police, upper management, property, then you have gas tax money corp yard street maintenance. Which or who are talking about????

The two options the City has to bring itself out of this mess in my opinion are:
1) Pressure MWD to either release the land on the East and West side of DVL for development or fulfill it's promises of developing the water park, water contact lake and possible hotels.

2) Start soliciting industrial on the west side.

They won't release the west end for industrial because they already took the money from the developers, for housing tracts, that still haven't been built, so the would have to pay back the money they already spent.As for the land on DVL MWD already sold it to the city of hemet MWD no-longer has any financial interest in(Know this from inside source's that work for MWD) Thus back to the cityof hemet which has no money to develop.So that's why we have dollar store's and tobacco shops, is because the main source of income is shifting from hard working people like us who have jobs, to people who are on ssi welfare.(nothing against the truly disabled that worked and paid in, who cant physically work anymore) But all the people who scam it and say oh I'm bipolar, can i have my check please, and sit on their fat ass in a scooter chair and block all the isle's of the grocery store, and flood the check cashing places on the first of every month.

It's interesting that a Family Dollar is closing in Hemet (the one by Winco). There is the one on Florida (the old Sharps Ace Store). There is also one across from Sprouts. Kmart is closing now. But now we get a Hobby Lobby, and Tractor Supply Store? I wish the empty store buildings (Albertsons, Old Walmart) would be taken down. I have seen the homeless camping in the parking lots. The only reason Hemet isn't bankrupt they sold the Trash route to CC&R for $25 Million. I also believe we get Federal money for all the Parolees Hemet house . Thanks Jeff Stone (Riverside Superintendent) of course there is NO parolees in Temecula where he lives.

And this is so sadly true, And I really don't get the tractor supply?? on florida ave, there are hardly no farms left, i don't see the need for a tractor supply, with nothing but tract homes going up with no yards?

Who brings the most revenue into Hemet? Since Hemet is considered a retirement area, the majority of our citizens must be seniors and they come in all shades of color and ethnic back ground.
But because of the never ending increased cost of living and the elimination of two incomes down to only one due to the death of one spouse. It would be safe to say that most senior citizens are on a low fixed income and in a lower tax bracket which means they don’t pay a lot of taxes.
Then you have the unemployed, people on welfare, disability and then you have illegal aliens that are sucking up any assistance they can get.
The local businesses pay their fair share of taxes and any other expenses to the city. But since the economy is in the toilet, those businesses usually close.
So where does the revenue come from to keep the city of Hemet running?
Maybe if traffic laws were enforced, it would help bring in some revenue.
I'll tell you where Hemet tax revenue is ending up. Anywhere but Hemet. I see nothing but Gosch license plates in Murrietta, Menniffee, San Diego, Riverside, Temecula and everywhere where high end shopping is available. since all of that high end shopping left Hemet thanks to idiotic management practices of Hemet city councils, they will now have to stew in their own junices and govern their expenditures based largely on revenue generated by their idea of an upper class department store.

With all respect illegals can't qualify for any government assistant because one off the requirements to get it, us to have social security # and driver license or california I.D. plus illegals come to work hard to have better life and also they file taxes, might you will ask yourself, how they file taxes if they are illegals? All ilegals are abke to qualify for ITIN #(Individual tax identification number) and that # is provide for the (I RS) main office in sacramento.

Uhhhhhh we have that now ...obviously you have not driven down Stetson and seen all those 18 wheelers in a row down that street. Two months ago, I actually counted 28 of them parked there. Plus Hemet already has Moreno people living here...where do you think all the black people have come from? No one is asking for a "all white community" BUT we are asking for MORE up scale stores to choose from, we are asking for these tweakers, sex offenders, and Sect 8 people to go and find some where else to roost.
We want to be able to have a safe neighborhood to walk our dog, a safe place to have our children play out front, and get to know their neighbors . I do not even have a clue about my neighbors... never see them.
Come on, it's not a race thing, it's economics. Poor people, Black, White, Brown all are a drag on Hemet. I want a safe attractive, entertaining place to live also.(Not the kind of entertainment you find in observing those ridiculous Crack Heads parading up and down Florida Avenue.) I love to shop, but just how many Dollar stores do we need? I love to eat out, but not just taco and burger joints. I see Mimi's has closed down loosing another business. I would love to have an Olive Garden in town, but that's not likley. The Habachi Grill almost went under, Acapulco' s been long gone, numerous others as well have closed. Every place with nicer sit down dining struggles. I try to support local businesses, but have often found we drive out of town for entertainment and dining. I have relocated here from Orange County and find it so hard to not be bored here in town. And, by the way, not just White folks get traffic tickets. Blaming Hemet' s problems on race is missing the big picture. Hemet is too attractive for the poor and not attractive to upscale business.

Actually, although Hemet is located further away from the freeways compared to MV, PV, Tem, it does have very good access to the freeways without obstruction. This, the open space to construct an industrial park, and the low overhead compared to the other cities is ideal. IMO, the city of Hemet fails in it's ability to attract and maintain such businesses/companies. It has had a number of opportunities come across its table in the past, but due to it's inability to negotiate properly lost the interest of these businesses/companies.

As far as employment. I have a friend (I'll keep him unnamed) who owns a business. He had a help wanted ad in the paper for just an average job, checker/box boy (forgot) paying $10/hr. How many local residents do you think applied in the four weeks the job was open? NONE, serious, NO-ONE.
$10/hr. is an insult when your making more off the state. Which is what a lot in Hemet are doing.
That's insane. When I was at Hemet high in the late 90's I worked at Lucky's formally Smith's, and I was getting just over five bucks. Where the hell were all of the kids? Do they not take high school jobs anymore? Anyhow, got the hell out of that town the day after grad night. Literally left grad night early to pack so that I could move the next morning. I've never looked back!
