Inglewood backtracks and uses public funds towards proposed Clippers arena

INGLEWOOD – Inglewood City Council held a last minute, special city council meeting October 22 to allocate taxpayer funds towards the Clippers project.  This is in stark contrast to developer Chris Meaney stating no public money would be used on the project.

The funds will be used to expand legal services and hire consultants to address certain right of way and relocation services related to real property for the proposed Clippers arena.

Despite the city being $9.8 million short in revenue this fiscal year, the city has allocated $1.2 million for a combination of companies: Meyers Nave Riback Silver & Wilson for an additional $650,900 out of the GENERAL FUND for legal fees which provides authorization to contractually engage Interwest Consulting Group Inc., and Del Richardson & Associates, for services.

Richardson is the current wife of former Inglewood Councilman Curren Price, specializes in relocating residents due to eminent domain proceedings and led the relocation of an entire neighborhood, in the 90s, for the expansion of the LAX airport at the intersection of Arbor Vitae and La Cienega.
