East LA cityhood proposal sees roadblock

January 21, 2012 12:00:00 AM PST
The latest effort to turn East Los Angeles into its own city may be in trouble.

A report commissioned by Los Angeles County has found that an incorporated city of East L.A. would not be able to support itself financially, and recommended the county reject the proposal.

East L.A. is currently an unincorporated section of the county.

A vote on the matter could come next week, but supporters of cityhood are asking for it to be delayed so they can look at possible sources of new revenue.
