California’s youngest city on Thursday moved closer to disbanding over financial troubles after the state shifted crucial revenue away from municipal coffers.
California’s youngest city evokes memories of the old West: residents ride horses against a backdrop of hardscrabble hills, and political wrangling takes place in a store that once sold cowboy boots.
A former Vernon city official was found dead Thursday night at a state park in the Bay area.
The city of Vernon faces an audit by the Internal Revenue Service over $419 million in bonds that may have violated tax laws, it was reported Monday.
With over 1,800 business and only about 90 residents, officials say it’s time to quit operating Vernon like a “fiefdom” and annex the city.
