Staff Report
The public is invited to attend a City of La Palma Town Hall meeting on Monday, September 12, at 7:00 p. m. in the Royal Palm Room of the La Palma Community Center located at 7821 Walker Street, La Palma. The Town Hall meeting is being held to provide information to the community regarding the City’s fiscal condition and the steps the City Council has taken over the past several years to address the fiscal crisis. City Manager Laurie Murray said, “La Palma is at a critical juncture in its history. Over the past few years, we have experienced a 24% decrease in revenues while at the same time facing increased costs for pensions and insurance. Although we have done much over the past several budget cycles, including reducing the workforce, lowering compensation, and making cuts to programs and expenditures—it simply is not enough for the City to achieve and sustain long term fiscal health. I encourage residents to attend the September 12 meeting; as the City values their input. ”
