56-year career to end For Henry Rio, mayors and city council members are just temporary workers on the city payroll. Since the Alhambra man came to work for the city in 1924, seven mayors and 130 city council members have come along, and the brand new City Hall Rio and other workers moved into has seen more than 50 years of continuous service.

Calvin Collidge was president of the United States, and the City Hall was located on Broadway between Second and Third Streets. Rio was bom in Chicago and came to Los Angeles with his brother, Ant...

Talcott said the federal government is tying the block grant money much more closely to servicing of areas identified for intensive development, and that area wide programs like the northeast dlal-a-rtde could be victims of the new policy.
