When are you people realize that bills have to be paid, even by the city. Do you expect to have your trash picked up free? More likley your waterbill will increase also. Once again realize, redevelopement will generate revenue which would support the city in many financial ways, including keeping utility bills low. You choose not to have redevelopement, therefore stop whinning and pay up.

These poor ladies were told to come to the meeting, half of them didn't speak because the information they got was wrong.

Who told these people that it was another water increase? I heard it was Sylvia. Is this true? Was she sober?

Crater face Maricela Santana got the story wrong again. The Kmart security guard turned Wave Newspaper "reporter" will never get it right. Someone should send her to school to learn how to become a real reporter.

Maricela Santana is a terrible reporter. She mis quotes too much. The statement of absorbing the cost for the residents by the city was made by Tony Martinez not by Aide Castro. And the recommendation to renegotiate the contract was made by Aide Castro at the beginning of her discussion. Maria Santillan made the motion in support of Aide Castro. Aide Castro second the motion and it passed. Aide Castro's true statement was that the city nor the residents benefited by this increase due to not receiving any extra service in return for the increase. When consolidated first got their contract they did say there would be no increase. One more thing for those who weren't their. The city attorney did state at the beginning that the contract was not signed by the previous council. Aide Castro reminded him that the city of Lynwood was a general law city that required all contracts be signed by the mayor to be enforceable. He felt stupid when a staff member gave him a copy of the contract that was clearly signed. Then he pretended like Aide Castro had misunderstood him. The attorney is no good. I hope he is quickly replaced. Economic develpment is on it's way. Maria Santillan and Aide Castro are working very well together. I've heard them talk about what they want to do. Once they get rid of the bad employees in redevelopment you will see our city move forward. The first step is this the budget review. Bad employees, BYE BYE. By the way, yes people were called to speak against the increase. Staff did a terrible job letting the community know their was a public hearing. If you guys remember that is how our water rates were raised. Simply because residents didn't speak up during public hearings. So I appreciate who ever made the decision to call us to speak against the increase. As a resident if I'm paying more, I want more in return.

The City Attorney said that the contract was not signed and approved by the current council. meaning: (Castro/Flores/Martinez/Rodriguez/Santillan). I didn't hear him say that the contract was not signed.

I thought all public hearings were published? The City is never going to put out a flier that reads "we are going to increase ..." What are you smoking or drinking Sylvia?

My opinion is that the residents need to get more involved.

I come to the council meetings because I am interested in knowing what is happening. Most residents expect a phone call, I think that's just ridiculous.

I am happy with what this council is doing (all 5).

Speak for yourself this council needs to show leadership. Just like Margaret Araujo asked in the council meeting. Who is really running this city? Cause this council is doing nothing to progress Lynwood. All the redevelopment in Lynwood will be done by the puerco billy martinez. The corruption continues...
But we are watching you every step of the way

the facts are Sylvia Ortiz is a lier and a convicted felon. How can you believe anything she says. She works for Aide right now and Aide sent her to lie to the people as always to try and make Santillan look bad.

I feel sorry for Sylvia. She is always being used by Aide. Aide has a new job as a councilwoman and she is making more money and has new clothes and gets her hair done now because she is working now. Poor Sylvia she is still in the same boat.

The pity does go to you Sylvia beacause you are the one who mostly needs it. That is why you went to complain to city council about the .39 CENT increase to the trash bill. Pobrecita I'm just standing up for you don't let her use you! She is already talking about you behind your back saying you and your husband are alcoholics and that she is embarrased to take you anywhere.

What's up with Sylvia, why is everybody kicking her around?

Sylvia is a person with alot of venum and hatred towards people. She lies about many people and she talks bad about everyone. She is someone you don't want around especially if you want to do something positive. She is a bitter vieja with a lot of personal baggage. Her daughter even talks about how embarrased she is of her mothers behavior. This is why Aide says she nver wants to be seen in public with her, but she will do anything to keep her on her good side because she is scared of what she can do against her.And thats who Sylvia Ortiz is.

No cabe duda que eres un tonto jaime flores. siempre te quejas de que a todos ustedes les pagan muy poco. tal ves es por que todos son una bola de burros. un grupo de pndejos sin educacion.

lo que no entiendes es que todos los trabajos de labor son facilmente reemplasable. apoco crees que no hay otros tontos como tu que quisieran tu trabajo?

la unica rason que los consejales los estan apoyando por el aumento es porque son muchos de ustedes y son una bola de llorones. si acaso hay uno que otro que si se merese ganar mas dinero. pero creeme que no se necesita mucho talento para cortar el sacate o echarle agua a las plantas.

termina de quejarte y ponte a trabajar y no chinges tanto guebon. si no te gusta tu trabajo o lo que te pagan ponte a buscar otro trabajo que te pague mas.

1.acuerdate que ay muchos chief y pocos indios para trabajar.

2.acuerdate que tienes que lamberle las nalgas a los consejales para que te den un aumento

3.acuerdate que tienes que ser la hija de tu patron para que te suban hasta las nuves sin por estar de guebona y andar de P*TA con elias de code enforcment.

4.quien quite que si sigues con la ciudad unos 20 anos te suban de supervisor como al burro de tu jefe que ni se le entiende ni madres cuando habla ingles

What is the deal with writing in spanish? Are you to stupid to write english, or you are not aware of where you are? Let me help you, you are in the united states. And by the way, english is written and spoken in schools.

Come to the next council meeting, you Castro haters will be smiling.
Your right,! Castro has used Sylvia but not anymore. Since Sylvia can't be trusted,,,,,,then maybe she should clear her conscience and tell who Aide Castro REALLY IS!!!!! Sylvia's private life is nobody's buisness. She not the elected official. But she is obviously very powerful that people would attack her. Aide doesn't need to be embarressed anymore,,,,,,she'll be too busy cleaning out her desk!!!!!!!!!

The City needs to look at how to better serve our community. The City should be open five days a week to give us more time to conduct City business. Afterall who is the City supppose to serve. C'mon Mayor Santillan it is time to show some leadership and make a change for the benefit and convenience of the residents.

If you don't like the fact that some folks prefer to write and speak Spanish, then go back to the Ozarks, such as Branson, MO... They don't speak the King's English there. so you might be content with English as spoken in the hick zone by a bunch of yahoos. Remember Puerto Rico is (proudly) part of the USA .....
