    Many residences purchased in to the city in the 60’s-80’s; because of the beauty of Master Planned community. Today, the master planned community is not being professionally maintained , because of budget is being choked to death by sheriffs budgets, baby sitting Disneyland events from A-Z, retirement packages, which does not aid our real estate values. Over the past recession decade, the city’s public works have fallen to ruins, robbing property owners of MAXIMUM potential appreciation values. Most residents do not support city filing bankruptcy.

    Many property owners in Cerritos will never be able to vote on city issues, since they will never be eligible to vote because of immigration status, old age, health issues, religious beliefs, etc. City needs to create a more fairness way to vote on city issues, so all the 15,000 property owner’s can vote.
    Televised/ archived CCC meetings is 100% okay. But Some resident’s can not attend because of health issue, ageism, violations of employment contracts and poss. retaliation because of religious beliefs. City needs to create a public comments section, which hides the ID and keeps cameras off faces as an option only.

    No to the Sales Tax increase.

    Whoever wrote that above has described what is wrong with Cerritos. We gotten so far from what a city should provide in services that we can’t afford any of it. We need better leadership and managed cutbacks.
