Although the municipality of San Felipe was legally born Saturday, its payroll has been kept under Mexicali jurisdiction.

For the next six months, Mexicali will pay its former employees in San Felipe about $100,000 in salaries per month.

Mexicali Executive Officer Claudia Beltrán said both cities are working on a new plan to support San Felipe until the new city collects its own funds. The agreement includes funds for the retirement of a couple workers.
