The City Council turned over operation of four city services to the private contractors on Wednesday in a move that will affect 22 employees. The city hopes to save $2.45 million over five years by contracting with private companies to perform jobs like landscape maintenance and water meter reading. The firms were given one-year contracts that will be reviewed next year. "We're not contracting the whole city," said Councilman Tom Lorch. "We have a year to work on these and see how they turn out."

A proposed landscaping contract with a firm owned by a political supporter and personal friend of Councilman Mike Mendez is under fire. The City Council voted 3 to 2 on May 1 to negotiate with Murray's Landscape Inc. of Santa Fe Springs rather than seek bids. The council is scheduled to vote on the $409,000 contract when it meets Tuesday night. Councilwoman Grace F. Napolitano, who opposed negotiating with just one company, said about 100 constituents have complained to her about the decision.

The City Council has approved a $409,000-a-year landscaping contract with a firm owned by a friend and political supporter of Councilman Mike Mendez. The council also voted 4 to 1 Tuesday to increase its overall spending on landscaping from $291,000 a year to $713,800. Mendez said the city needs to spend more money on landscaping to instill pride in the community. Council members have long complained of barren road medians and shabby parks.
