The Bell City Council has voted unanimously to subpoena the records of its former city manager, whose huge salary prompted investigations into possible fraud in the small, working-class Los Angeles suburb.
City Attorney James M. Casso says the records may help the city determine whether Robert Rizzo engaged in "possibly unlawful and wasteful activities."
Rizzo was forced to resign earlier this year after residents were outraged to learn he was being paid nearly $800,000 a year.
The City Council also voted unanimously Friday to sever an agreement under which it began providing municipal services to the neighboring city of Maywood earlier this summer.
