City salaries

Dear Editor:I have attempted to read through the budget as shown on the city's website, but it is too confusing and too time consuming to look up all the information I was searching for in regards to city administrations annual salaries. Why doesn't the city of Downey, like other cities, post the position, person and annual salary of the top-salaried employees (including city council and mayor) on the front page of its website like some cities have done to avoid the "city of Bell" stigma? -- David Abney, Downey
