It was a bad night for La Puente Councilwoman Lola Storings motions Tuesday. Why? They didnt get any support from fellow council members.
Storing put two proposals on the agenda: one to prohibit council members from accepting campaign contributions from prospective or current developers and contractors, and the other to do away with all-expense paid meals for council members when meetings begin before 6:30 p.m.
Apparently, the city spends about $1,000 a year to feed the council before meetings.
I think were adults, she said. We can adjust our eating schedules so the city doesnt have to pay for it.
Too bad. Neither of those initatives are aint gonna happen.
On another note, the city passed an initiative to go green and provide paperless agendas. They also did a step-by-step review of the all the citys commissions. More to come on that.
