Bev. Hills Officials Lend a Hand to Struggling Bell, CA

Bell is infamous for being sucked dry by a handful of corrupt politicians. Now that the officials have been removed, Bell is struggling to find its footing. Wealthy Beverly Hills and Santa Monica have stepped up to help.

The well-heeled cities have taken the unprecedented step of loaning city leaders to assist Bell until they get a city staff.

Ruben Vives reports:

"Beverly Hills is expected to provide Bell with an information technology analyst who will help update the city's computer system and a management analyst to help draw up new city policies.

San Mateo, Calif., more than 300 miles to the north, has already sent a human resource director to help and in the coming days a temporary city clerk is expected to parachute into Bell."
