Overnon and Out

by Armen

Today's LA Times has a story about the City of Vernon (right outside the City of Los Angeles) putting all of its municipal resources toward ousting newcomers who sought city offices. (See also Drum's post). I think there is a nice and equitable remedy for this. The State MUST revoke the city charter immediately. Municipalities are a creation of the sovereign and of course they can be destroyed by the sovereign. This is clearly an instance where such a destruction is warranted. I have a hunch that the unincorporated area of formerly Vernon can easily be monitored by the LA County Sheriff's Dept, just like many other unincorporated areas.
