Lancaster will spend $100,000 in public funds to advertise the city's new auto sales mall, following a decision by Palmdale earlier this year to spend nearly $2.5 million in much broader aid to that city's rival auto center. The Lancaster program, approved by the city's Redevelopment Agency on Monday night, is a legitimate use of public funds, according to outside experts. But, they said, the costlier Palmdale program raises the question of whether that city engaged in an illegal giveaway.
