The circus goes on at City Hall. Monday night the La Cañada Flintridge City Council continued its recent tradition of completely inscrutable and undemocratic action — all in the name of making our city look good. Does the City Council serve the people of this city or only its own selfish interests? Judge for yourself.
The council committed to building sidewalks in three areas without ever notifying the affected residents or holding any public hearing on the matter — not even the resident living just over the back fence from City Hall.
The project is mostly funded through a state grant, the balance coming out of next year’s budget — a budget which won't exist for another month. So the city spent money it didn't have in any budget on a project not properly approved under its own rules.
