Bellflower : Change in Fair Housing Plan

July 31, 1986

The City Council voted unanimously Monday night to develop a fair housing program after the Fair Housing Foundation of Long Beach, which has served the city for six years, canceled its contract on June 30.

The foundation, which investigates discrimination complaints in 17 Southeast area cities, dropped Bellflower after the council adopted a budget that cut funding for the foundation from $15,000 to $10,000 a year.

Assistant City Manager Mike Sakamoto said the city will meet with the agency on Friday to discuss changing from a flat fee rate to a per-call charge that may be cheaper.

According to Robyn Polliner, executive director of the foundation, Bellflower last year had 53 housing discrimination complaints, a high rate compared to smaller cities.
