Unringing the Bell

New, 1 comment

How's tiny, formerly-corruption-plagued Bell doing two years post-scandal? Onerous fees have been cut and business owners sound happier, city council meetings are streamed online, and police impounds of cars (formerly a major source of revenue) are down by at least half. But: "Bell still has the second-highest property tax in Los Angeles County, after only Beverly Hills, and a 10% utility tax, about twice that of most cities." Plus there are all the legal issues.
