A Perris councilman is suggesting exhausting his city’s redevelopment funds before the state can.
Mark Yarbrough called on his City Council colleagues and city staff to use up Perris’ redevelopment money before a proposal by Gov. Jerry Brown to eliminate redevelopment agencies can take effect. Billions of redevelopment dollars not already committed to projects would be redirected to other priorities.
