LOS ANGELES (AP) - A small industrial city under investigation
for paying its officials huge salaries could be taken over by the
city of Los Angeles under a proposal being floated by a Los Angeles
City Council member.
Councilwoman Janice Hahn introduced a motion Wednesday calling
on Los Angeles' chief legislative analyst to look into the
feasibility of annexing Vernon. Her motion was forwarded to the
city's land use and planning committee.
Vernon, a city of only about 100 residents, is the target of
corruption investigations by the state attorney general and county
Hahn questions whether Vernon's City Council and administrators
are operating as a legitimate government agency.
