Newspapers do not automatically qualify as “newspapers of general circulation.” Only a court can decree a newspaper as one of “general circulation,” and once a newspaper obtains such an order, it is said to have attained “adjudicated status,” permitting it to publish legal notices for particular geographic regions – … Source (Davis Wright Tremaine, LLP 11/2016)

Compton City Charter Section 614 Publishing of Legal Notices states that In the event there is only one newspaper of general circulation published in the City, then the City Council shall have the power to contract with such newspaper for the printing and publication of such legal notices without being required to advertise for bids therefore.

Be the first to know and stay tuned for updates on the   City of Compton’s Consolidated Presidential Primary Election which will be held on Tuesday, March 5, 2024.
