Well, once again, Walnut is only open three days this week.  Isn't that special???
How many of these people live in Walnut and care about Walnut???

To answer your question, about 40% of Walnut voters care, the other 60% keep voting for idiots. So, the majority of voters are too dumb or just ignorant, but they rule the rest of us. Walnut voters re-elect people that keep their kids in temp classrooms and send them $500 red-light camera tickets. How stupid can you get. These same people gave you Obama and Jerry Brown.

It is no secret that the California economy has been a little anemic. Unlike irresponsible officials in other cities which have since gone either gone bankrupt or drastically cut vital services, the City of Walnut is still keeping things together on a very limited budget. Limiting the number of payroll hours at city hall is a sensible way of maintaining a balanced budget without having to layoff staff or cut services such as law enforcement. I say keep up the good work City Council!

Umm, you need to do a little more research. They "work" 10 hour days so they can have 3 Day weekends, no payroll hours are "limited." Do you have any idea what the City Manager makes? Salary & car puts him at $1/4 MILLION, with a pension your children will still be paying for. Being closed on Fridays only hurts contractors trying to get permits, but why would the City give a damn about them. You'll be pleased to know the red-light ticket camera is on 7 days a week.

I agree. I can't believe that we save any money by being open only 4 days a week. And, when there is a holiday, the city is only open 3 days week. Shame on Walnut City Hall for letting this go on for all these years. It seems like things happen on Friday and you have to wait 3 days to let the city know. On another note, I was sitting on Temple, waiting to cross Grand and someone went through a red light. I didn't see a camera. Do we still have it?
