AG Brown: Bell city will likely agree to monitor

California Attorney General Jerry Brown said he believes officials in the scandal-ridden city of Bell will reach an agreement with his office to appoint a monitor to oversee affairs in the modest blue-collar suburb.

Chief Deputy Attorney General Jim Humes told the Los Angeles Times Wednesday that talks with the city broke down when the two sides couldn't reach an agreement the state felt guaranteed accountability and transparency.

Humes said he would take Bell to court if necessary to win the right to have a monitor granted access to city records.

At a news conference Thursday, Brown said he thinks both sides will eventually work out their differences.

Eight current and former Bell officials face criminal charges for allegedly mishandling millions of dollars in city funds.
