*Consumer Comment: I Believe in the Corruption at BaldwinPark City Hall and Code enforcement

*Consumer Comment: To get the other side of this story..
1. Tow Scandal - Excessive Towing and Impounding (Generating millions each year in a small city with a population of just 79,000) (Forced police to impound as many vehicles as possible) (Threatened to cut police if revenue was not generated)
2. Excessive Permit Requirements
3. Excessive Cost of Permit Fees (City Hall charging thousands of dollars while neighboring cities charge significantly less)
4. Overly restrictive sign ordinances
5. Code Enforcement Abuse (Citing unlawfully, pushing and shoving into private property, charging exorbitant fees, falsely acting as police, documented collection of bribes by Baldwin Park Code Enforcement Officers)
6. Business License fee gouging. (Charging 3-6 times the price of a business license which would normally cost only $45-$50)
7. Fee Discrimination (Charging Asians and Latinos higher fees for business licenses and permits. This is the Citys way to steal from Latinos and Asians since they tend to be new arrivals to the United States and unaware of actual costs)
(Code Enforcement also does not impose the same unlawful requirements against "friends" of the City/City Council)
Friends of Council include City Hall contractors and other parties that have an interest in City Hall. These parties also tend to bribe local officials for favorable contracts.
8. Political Retaliation (City Officials send Code Enforcement, Inspectors, and attempt to send State Agencies to residents, businesses, and property owners who attempt to resist the will of Council Members/City Hall of Baldwin Park)
9. Illegal Activity in Baldwin Park Misuse of Public Funds (Public Funds provided by the State of California are regularly funneled into other accounts. These funds are regulated by the State of California, however, the City of Baldwin Park illegally uses these funds to fill its coffers)
