High level heads keep rolling in Temple City

At least two Temple City’s top administrators have been asked to leave over the past two weeks and their severance packages will cost the municipality at least $114,600. Speculation is rife that “more heads will roll.” One resident, who prefers to remain anonymous told Temple City Tribune “ this is just the tip of the iceberg…the financial side of Temple City is a serious mess.”
The City Council unanimously fired City Manager Jose Pulido on Jan. 13, ironically a few days after he received a whopping performance bonus. Four days earlier, Pulido terminated Mark Persico, who oversees construction projects within Temple City’s boundaries.
Temple City is in the middle of a $21 million construction project on Rosemead Boulevard, and the city council has budgeted nearly $17 million to revitalize Las Tunas Drive. Pulido terminated Persico, the community development director, on Jan. 9. Persico immediately went on 30 days of paid administrative leave, which will cost the city about $11,100.
Persico started working at Temple City in February 2013 and earned a salary of $133,800. His official last day will be Feb. 10, according to city officials.

      Mr. Cleary obviously doesn’t know what he’s talking about. This Council has achieved so much and Rosemead Blvd. is a huge success. I wish there weren’t term limits so they could keep on wrking together. Finaly progress in this City. So much has been accomplished in the past four years and it is because of this Council. Mr. Cleary should keep his rude comments to himself. 99% of the residents love what is happening in this City. Obviously, Mr. Clear had ZERO supportfor his recall threats. Also, his 8 million dollar is about 7 million dollars off. He is obviously an uniformed resident if he even is one. GO TC!
