June 3, 2020 - West Covina's Audit and Finance committee met to discuss the budget for fiscal year 2020-21. During this meeting, the topic of switching to the Los Angeles County Fire Department and abolishing the West Covina Fire Department was brought up to help "balance the budget" and lower expenses. This was not a popular choice and if history serves us, the City of West Covina already voted on that exact topic in December 1997. About 70% of the voters said no.
More to come on this subject as the city has scheduled a "Town Hall Meeting" on Monday, June 22, 2020 at 6:00pm. They have also scheduled a Special City Council Meeting on Tuesday, June 23, 2020 at 7:00pm. We have a lot to review, edit and post so please be patient.
