A former city manager's huge $787,000 salary is only half of the unusually generous total compensation given to the official in the small California blue-collar city of Bell, according to a city official.
The frenzied response to the exorbitant salaries in this working-class Los Angeles suburb shows no clear end in sight.
A police officer used his Taser to discourage a small black bear that had gotten into someone's fish fryer.
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.
Her co-defendant, Robert Rizzo, pleaded no contest and has said he'll testify against her.
In a lawsuit against the city of Bell filed Monday, Mr. Rizzo claims he's owed his wages, with interest, because he hasn't been convicted of a felony and hasn't resigned his post.
