The clock’s run out on my public records request to El Monte for the police report detailing Mayor Ernie Gutierrez’ arrest earlier this month.
I submitted the request on Nov. 19 and it’s been 10 working days since then – still no response from the city.
I’ve been playing phone tag with Greg Palmer , the attorney for El Monte police, for more than a week. We finally got a hold of each other this morning and Palmer said the city had “told me not to do anything with that request … It is my understanding the city attorney is handling it.”
I’m still waiting on a call back from City Attorney Edward Moseley.
