Montebello Costco Drama - Might Move to Monterey Park

Developers in MPK want the Costco, and Montebello really wants to keep it. Costco is MTB's largest tax revenue source. Story in the Whittier Daily News.

I guess if you're the biggest revenue source, the city will bend over (forwards) to keep you around.

That's not news

It's the same thing in Rosemead, where it's already been documented that Wal-Mart has been violating the city's noise ordinance every night since they opened. Instead of doing something to relieve the neighbors, they're letting Wal-Mart call the shots and set the time table for how they will make the noise a little less illegal.
