A news conference held yesterday in the city of Bell signaled that the heat is not off the city officials who remain on the payroll, after more administrators "were found to have six-figure salaries in newly released salary documents," reports abc7.

Salaries for seven positions are between $195,627 and $422, 707. This information led attendees of yesterday's conference to shout out and interrupt Interim City Manager Pedro Carrillo "several times as he tried to explain his efforts to reform City Hall."

Angry Bell residents--who pay the second-highest levels of property tax in L.A. County--are calling for more resignations. Last month both the Police Chief and the City Manager resigned after the public learned of their high salaries.
