Compton city manager Roger Haley has his hands full getting the cities financial affairs in order. This week’s April 26th council agenda reveals the city overestimated revenues and referenced “erroneous” information in the 2015-16 budget. Revenue was overinflated by millions. Many recall the city controller mysteriously resigning a couple of weeks ago. The city is preparing to appoint someone to the position at this same meeting. Items of concern are a pending million dollar payment to the Department of Finance.
Minutes from the April 19th include residents not being too happy about another developer being awarded the forgiveness of a loan.
A congressional candidate appeared at the meeting, to speak on Agenda Item 7 and was admonished by both the mayor and a council member. The item didn’t receive council approval.
The city manager is proposing key departments be moved from under the city attorney, Craig Cornwell, to the city managers office. Sounds like its time for a new city attorney. Any suggestions?
