Complaint alleges BP Council broke the rules

We’ve just confirmed the District Attorney’s Office is reviewing allegations that the Baldwin Park City Council violated the Brown Act.

The complaint was received this week, according to Dave Demerjian, head of the DA’s public integrity division.

Demerjian wouldn’t say who filed the complaint, but the Baldwin Park Police Association did: it was them. They claim the council violated open meeting laws last week when they fired Police Chief Edward Lopez in closed session and then didn’t announce it.

City officials claim Lopez retired.
