La Puente officials say interim Transition Manager Frank Tripepi will be cutting his hours — and his salary for that matter — in half come March 1.
Tripepi made a mention of the change at Tuesday’s City Council meeting. La Puente Mayor Louie Lujan confirmed Wednesday that Tripepi will in fact be working 50 percent less, and Tripepi’s company Willdan Financial Services will be paid roughly $10,000 a month instead of the $20,000 they’ve been getting.
“He has brought City Hall and the City Council to the point where he can reduce his hours,” Lujan said, adding that the move will save money but not sacrifice quality.
Lujan said this will also allow the city to keep Tripepi on longer, but not go over budget.
