The Los Angeles County district attorney's office is investigating whether a South El Monte councilman who listed a local hotel as his address on his voter registration and nomination papers really lives in that city or in nearby Alhambra. Councilman Allen Co, elected in March, was interviewed by prosecutors shortly after his victory and last week a district attorney's investigator reviewed Co's nomination papers at the South El Monte city clerk's office.

This will be the last year for the group, founded by El Monte resident Lee Bollen more than 20 years ago.

The City Council has taken the first step toward repealing a policy that made it the first in California to approve voluntary, random drug tests for its members. In a 4-1 vote late Tuesday, council members directed the city staff to draft a resolution to rescind the policy, which ignited a debate about whether such tests are truly voluntary for elected officials.

Some South El Monte residents are livid over a proposed city ordinance, but if the measure goes into effect as planned in December, citizens won't get a lot of time to complain about it. The City Council voted 3 to 2 this month in favor of putting a three-minute time limit on public speeches at its meetings. The council used to have a five-minute cap on comments, but when Mayor Albert Perez took office last year, he told the city clerk to put away the timer. Now, he says that was a mistake.

The council's decision has ignited a debate about whether such tests are truly voluntary for elected officials.

The South El Monte City Council will hold a public hearing tonight to consider approving an $8-million bond issue to pay for street improvements, a beautification project and housing construction. The council is expected to vote on City Manager Rita Hardin's proposal to issue a kind of bond that it can approve rather than putting the issue before the voters. It would pay for an overhaul of sewers, fire hydrants, traffic signals and other projects.
