Sept. 22, 2010: Robert Rizzo, former City of Bell Manager, appears in Los Angeles County Criminal Court.

Here is one very positive bit of fallout from the bad news about ridiculously high salaries in the city of Bell and local jurisdiction: you now can learn more about what your own local officials are paid.

The state controller's has created a new web tool that allows the public to search for the salaries of county and city officials around California. You can use it by going here. The controller's office says this is the first phase of a searchable system for even more data, and so the office is asking voters to send suggestions for how to make the database better.
