How do you forget about $8 million?

On the last page of South El Monte’s Mid Year Budget Review, titled “Departmental Requests,” this is what it says:

Redevelopment Projects: Need to budget $4.5 million for various redevelopment project expenditures

Housing Projects: Need to budget $4 million for us on the DC Corp mixed use senior housing project.

*Sratching head* You’d think this is something that would have come to mind six months ago when approving the budget.

The council was scheduled to take action at tonight’s special meeting.

    The budget they submitted to the public was probably a fraud and understated their surplus and now they are spending that surplus in the way they want it spent without having it go through the budget process.
