Bell : More Pay for Polling Places

February 20, 1986

In an effort to encourage more people to open up their homes for polling places for the April 8 election, the City Council Monday raised the compensation for rental from $30 to $100.

The council also approved the increase of election compensation for judges and clerks from $35 to $45 and inspectors from $40 to $50.

The move was necessary because many of the residents that opened up their homes for years have decided not to do so this year for various reasons, City Clerk Martha Gutierrez said.

Councilman Ray Johnson said he was concerned because the polling place for three of the city's 10 precincts are in one location.

Voting for precincts 9, 11 and 12 is scheduled to be held at Bell Mobile Home park on 4874 E. Gage Ave., which is owned by Mayor George Simmons. The motion passed 4-0, with Simmons abstaining.

Gutierrez said those interested in offering the use of their homes on election day can contact her at the City Hall.
