    From Wikipedia, perhaps a clue ?

    Garden Grove
    Land Area 17.941 sq mi Pop 175,140 Pop Density 9500 / sq mi
    Irvine
    Land Area 66.106 sq mi 258,386 Pop Pop Density 3900 / sq mi
    Also would city road geometry and district / at-large form have an impact ?
    Or should “High Tech” Irvine be telecommuting more, if not teleporting ? lol.

    While it is far less than the $765 that big wigs at the county get, it is still stupid, for one reason. These are CITY council members. Not county, not state. They don’t have to drive that far or that much. Nice way to give yourselves a raise, guys.

    Hmm, could have cast that net wider for stipends that other OC cities pay — or don’t. For example, Placenita has no such stipend.

    I believe calling council member Kris Beard “councilwoman Kris Beard” says all you need to know about Kris Beard. Though I agree with his vote here. Seems that the three council members who passed this just want to get all they can out of Garden Grove. Garden Grove would be better with no council at all than the one we have. Not one person on this council that has earned my respect. Giving them selves a $2400 annual raise just because they can says all you need to know about where they are coming from.

    Hybrid Hummers to both save gas and the environment and spew just concentrated smug out the back like all the other limosine liberals in Irvine.
