The council during a recession and at a time when the city is broke has given itself an illegal raise in pay. The rules and laws of a general law city is.clear you can not give the council more than a 5% raise and it must be supported with an ordinance or by a voter approval in an election.
The city council has once again screwed the residents and has put the blame on the police department for costing to much money. I suggest the DA office must look into the blatant misuse of city funds. I believe in Bell City it is called Misappropriations of city funds they were convicted on just recently.

Well it was easy for the legal system to figure out the city council who was directed by city manager Vejay Dumbhall oh I mean Singhall to take the illegal raise is totally Illegal and constitutes misuse of city funds.

There is a big difference the charter city basically makes their own guide lines for pay and many other operations.
The general law city has strict guide lines they have follow from the state. The pay for council in Baldwin Park is 7,200 dollars a year which is calculated by the population in the city. The council can not give itself a raise of more than 5% without an ordinance being passed. If the council
wants more money it must hold a city wide election and it must be voted on by the residents.
The council can not vote to make common duties of the council special committees and make themselves directors to get stipend pay either.
The Baldwin Park council has violated the law
twice first by taking 1200.00 a month for redevelopment meetings which were council duties. Then by taking stipend pay for council duties they have always performed before at no
stipend pay for housing authority, finance
authority, and for CDC redevelopment.
The council gave themselves over a 50% increase in pay illegally. The pay is 155.00 more on top of a 300.00 they already get for each council meeting.
This council is in big trouble since the city is broke and the council can't afford public safety but it can afford raises for these council idiots.
Here comes the BELL baby!!!!!!!!!!

You forgot to mention that $1500 medical insurance per month that most, if not all, take as cash out/income since they are covered elsewhere. All other part time employees have ZERO benefits and even full time has about half of that except the CEO and Directors.
