A former city manager accused of masterminding a scam to bilk the blue-collar Los Angeles suburb of Bell of more than $5.5 million was ordered Thursday to stand trial on more than 50 counts of fraud.
The mayor and the city manager of the Los Angeles suburb of Bell, Calif., were charged Tuesday along with six other city officials in an investigation by the Los Angeles County district attorney's office into bloated salaries that the public servants had secured for themselves.
Three administrators whose huge salaries sparked outrage in Bell, Calif., a small blue-collar suburb of Los Angeles, have agreed to resign, the City Council said Friday.
"We are going to analyze all the city payrolls and possibly will revise all the salaries of the city," Mr. Artiga said.
"We work a lot. I work with my community every day," the mayor said, as he shook hands with and embraced people leaving the food bank Thursday.
