Cuts coming in South El Monte

For some cities, things seem to be getting worse before they get better.

Faced with declining revenues, it appears South El Monte must make some substantial cuts to city services and public safety. Some $400,000 in layoffs is the recommended action.

Mixed in with that is the possibility of asking voters to approve a sales tax increase.

The way forward will be discussed at Tuesday’s city council meeting.

    I happen to run across this article about South El Monte. Didn’t I read that Mayor Aguinaga and the entire council took a ten percent pay increase and expanded their travel allocation money? They also cut two deputies from Temple Station. So much for public safety coming first and foremost. No wonder the city is in the dumpster.
