South El Monte’s ninja team … err … City Council takes on sewer fees, budget

I was going to write a cheeky post about how South El Monte was going to discuss some foul smelling news at their meeting tonight, not too mention a sewer fee increase.

The foul smell was going to be about the budget, except… it isn’t so bad.

So much for being clever.

Anyway, here is a clip and a link to our update. More to come in Thursday’s paper.

And for those of you interested in more interesting sewers than South El Monte’s, there is always this.

SOUTH EL MONTE – The city council will discuss tonight the city’s budget for the 2010-2011 budget year and whether to charge residents a new sewer fee to help replace the aging sewer system.

The city was facing an estimated $414,000 shortfall between predicted revenues and expenditures for the new budget year. City staff has recommended cuts to make up for the deficit.
