Current housing development now known as Arroyo Park approximately superimposed over a 1963 aerial of the original Riverside Sewer Site.  Red Arrow  over proposed boundary map (second pic-below left) displays approximate position of broken sewer digesters.  The housing development within the dark lines is the proposed properties which will be under consideration of the new community facilities district.   The new homes and properties will be subject to the additional tax on top of the standard property tax.  Third pic below right, original aerial of the Riverside Agricultural Park which includes the original City Sewer System.

DEVELOPER CHUCK COX OF ARROYO PARK HOMES, A.K.A. AG PARK, DESCRIBES THE PROPERTY AS A ‘TOXIC DUMP.” (CLICK THIS LINK TO VIEW YOUTUBE).  On March 3, 2015 Developer Chuck described the development he purchased from the City of Riverside as follows, “the city didn’t know it at the time, but they owned a “Toxic Dump.””  Now advertised as AHV Arroyo Park Homes, “Finding the Perfect AHV Home is a Walk in the Park.”  Did they mention a “Toxic Park?”

JIMMARTINDISCLOSURE

Resident Jim Martin speaks about Developer Chuck Cox’s comment regarding the AG Park property (aka Arroyo Park) being a “toxic dump” site. ( CLICK THIS LINK TO VIEW YOUTUBE).  Resident of Ward 7 Jim Martin, calls out council and reinforces the statement that developer Chuck Cox referenced AG Park, aka Arroyo Park, as a “Toxic Dump.”  Martin also made the claim that the City of Riverside spent over $1 million on the initial clean up of this site, therefore the City of Riverside has a tremendous investment in this project, regardless of what we are hearing. Further he speaks of the credibility of DTSC (Department of Toxic Substance Control) for the State of California. What he also states is that the original 15 inch diameter sewer line is significant, why was this significant? It’s significant because this concrete pipe contains PCB’s (Polychlorinated Biphenyls), but was broken up into smaller pieces and now stands in a huge pile waiting for Jurupa Avenue extension to be completed according to Developer Chuck Cox’s engineer Mr. Beers, and this PCB infused concrete rubble will be the the foundation of the Jurupa Avenue extension.  It is now known that the oversight by DTSC on particular toxic sites is in question.  Further, it is not argued as to why they are being investigated.

TMC was sent the following pics which were purported to show crushed toxic infused concrete being mixed with soil as the foundation for the Jurupa Avenue extension for that property, as Jim Martin stated at public comment, March 3, 2015.

AG Park Family resident, Marilyn Whitney, states that AG Park should have been a Super Fund Site, and paid clean up by the State of California.  But the questions regarding California’s Department of Toxic Substances Control ability to effectively handle these issues remains in question.  Department of Toxic Substance Control (DTSC) currently is under investigation regarding their policies and procedures.  She has a list within a 3 block area that claims illnesses, including cancer and reproductive problems.

Again we see the developer hard balling, intimidating and attempting to strong arm the residents.  Residents who attempt to ask the simple question of how they have been impacted by toxic materials that may not have been properly addressed.  One resident in particular Marilyn Whitney, was sent this letter by Developer Chuck Cox’s attorney Allen Matkins, who incidentally also does work on occasion for the City of Riverside.  The letter appears to utilize the lawyers tools of intimidation, hoping you don’t know your rights scenario.  Similar letter was sent to KTLA Channel 5 reporter Kacey Montoya.

The following letter from the County of Riverside, Department of Environmental Health which states that test sampling must be witnessed by a Haz Mat representative.  Further the letter specifically states that the letter does not relieve the City of Riverside or other associates (possibly developer Chuck Cox) of any responsibilities mandated under the the California Health and Safety Code, if additional or previously unidentified contamination is discovered at this same location.  The reason this is important is that the Community Advocates brought the issue of AG Park to the County Supervisors, only to be told by them that this was a City of Riverside issue.

Activist Vivian Moreno, attempted to correct interim City Manager Lee McDougal from “waffling” on the issue that the City of Riverside “screwed up.”  McDougal also states that DTSC (Department of Toxic Substances Control) canceled their appointment to speak on the AG Park issue.  TMC has learned that the reason DTSC canceled their appointment with the City of Riverside is that they could not support the City’s position on AG Park (Arroyo Park), therefore there was a no show.  It’s interesting to note they backed out from speaking at Council on short notice.  The following is interim City Manager Lee McDougal splaining explaining the whole situation.

lmwaffling

INTERIM CITY MANAGER LEE MCDOUGAL EXPLAINS WHY THE CITY “SCREWED UP”, REFERENCING AG PARK, AKA ARROYO PARK, A “TOXIC DUMP.”

Interim Riverside City of Riverside Lee McDougal explain how he feels he was quoted regarding what many at a Friday Morning Club Meeting at the Goeske Senior Center. Many are saying he was “back pedaling” and “waffling.” Activist Vivian Moreno interrupts McDougal and Mayor Bailey gets involved. Again, many now see Lee as a “Smooth Operator.” Cheating is cheating is cheating, and whether it happens to the public, a friend or a spouse – its still cheating. McDougal did give the community the option to have properties tested independently tested at the City of Riverside’s expense. He states that no scientific evidence was given to him, but maybe he does not know how to interpret scientific data. Chief Financial Officer Brent Mason gets involved toward the later part of the video.

While residents adjacent and within the vicinity are claiming deaths and illness from cancer, would you purchase a home here, as many are asking.  The City of Riverside and Developer Chuck Cox continues to discredit the residents of this area as what appears to be allegedly a “cancer cluster.”  According to the below letters sent by developer Chuck Cox to KTLA’s reporter Kacey Montoya and AG Park resident Marilyn Whitney, there is “no toxic dump site.”  This was sent by the law firm of Allen Matkins Leck Gamble Mallory & Natisis LLP, which incidentally, also does work at taxpayer expense for the city of Riverside.

Yep, a bit on the scary side as many are saying, but don’t shoot the messenger Allen….  A “bullshitter,” as residents are stating, or a law firm you can depend on? Again, an entity hired by the city of Riverside not to defend the taxpayer, but to screw them.  Another parasitic law firm, like Best Best & Krieger, that feeds on the sweat of the taxpayers.  Worst of all, they retaliate against the taxpayer with their own money.  Those that are elderly, sick and dying.

LETTER TO KTLA REPORTER KACEY_MONTOYA   LETTER TO RESIDENT MARILYN WHITNEY

So let me get this straight, first Cox gets attorney Allen Matkins to send letters to KTLA reporter Kacey Montoya and resident Marilyn Whitney telling them that AG Park is not a “toxic dump.”  But on March 3rd Chuck Cox publicly calls AG Park a “toxic dump”?  There is definitely something rotten in Denmark.

What we have found is that the FRA-RSI Arroyo Park LLC address is associated with 21 other LLC’s.   Questions concerning residents as to how safe this property was in association to their homes.  With DTSC itself being investigated, can their clean bill of health be supported as legitimate?  Signs, which have since been removed, had stated the following:

IMG_0587TWO

 Another fine dirty land deal?  What has been commonly known as AG Park a 21.34 acre housing development to built over contaminated ground, cleared by DTSC as safe for development.  In order to pay for all the incidentals, which the developer usually incurs the cost, they are proposing to council to set up a CFD in order to hit the taxpayer for $6 million, rather than those responsible.  It appears that the property will change hands under developer Chuck Cox’s Friends of Riverside Airport LLC to Friends of Riverside Airport-RSI Arroyo Park LLC, and the developer would like the City of Rivesride to implement a special levy, by declaring the development site a Community Facilities District, aka Mello-Roos.  This means a special tax will be collected to pay for all expenses he is responsible for to the tune of $6 million.  Is Chuck Cox the City’s new $6 million dollar man?  Or will it only become a Bionic crisis for the taxpayer?  The problem that has yet been addressed, has the property been given a clean bill of health in lieu of the Department of Toxic Substance Control being investigated.

blogbioniccrisis

The Community Facilities Act (more commonly known as Mello-Roos) was a law enacted by the California State Legislature in 1982.[1] The name Mello-Roos comes from its co-authors, Senator Henry J. Mello (D-Watsonville) and Assemblyman Mike Roos (D-Los Angeles). The Act enabled “Community Facilities Districts” (CFDs) to be established by local government agencies as a means of obtaining community funding. Counties, cities, special districts, joint powers authority, and schools districts use these financing districts to pay for public works and some public services.[2]

A Mello-Roos District is an area where a special property tax on real estate, in addition to the normal property tax, is imposed on those real property owners within a Community Facilities District. These districts seek public financing through the sale of bonds for the purpose of financing public improvements and services.[3] These services may include streets, water, sewage and drainage, electricity, infrastructure, schools, parks and police protection to newly developing areas. The tax paid is used to make the payments of principal and interest on the bonds.

Therefore, localities that have been empowered by state law or local law can levy these special taxes on their residents to fund the capital costs of a wide variety of public improvements (such as roads and sewer services), as well as the ongoing operation and maintenance costs of a limited number of public services (such as schools, police and fire protection services, libraries, etc.) that benefit the community.  But of course, these are prone to abuse.

CITY COUNCIL MEMORANDUM

The work on this project to date has been undertaken by the City’s financing team, which consists of bond counsel (Best Best & Krieger), special tax consultant (Albert A. Webb Associates) and the financial advisor (CSG Advisors).  Staff members from the Finance Department and the City Attorney’s Office are coordinating the formation process.  This already should be telling seeing that Best Best & Krieger and Albert A. Webb & Associates are in on this deal.

Some of the details of the language being brought forward to the Riverside City Council as follows:

Owner has the option to purchase that certain real property located on approximately 21.34 gross acres of land including Tract No. 28987 (the “Property”) located in the City, commonly known as “Arroyo Park” from Friends of the Riverside Airport, L.L.C., a California limited liability company.  Of course it is commonly known as “AG Park.”

The City, is in the process of establishing a community facilities district pursuant to the provisions of Chapter 2.5 (commencing with § 53311) of Part 1 of Division 2 of Title 5 of the Government Code, commonly known as the “Mello-Roos Community Facilities Act of 1982” (the “Act”), over and including the Property for the purpose of levying special taxes (the “Special Taxes”) and selling bonds, in one or more series (the “Bonds”), in an amount sufficient to finance the acquisition of land and improvements thereon for public use, and the design, planning, engineering, installation, and construction of certain public facilities and improvements, to be owned, operated or maintained by the City (the “City Facilities”) to satisfy the obligation of the Property and the Owner for the payment of certain fees to the City. The Public Facilities are generally described in Exhibit A attached hereto, which Public Facilities are necessary to the development of the Property. Said community facilities district shall be known as the “City of Riverside Community Facilities District No. 2015-2 (Arroyo Park).”

Section 3. Types of Facilities and Incidental Expenses.
(a) The types of public facilities proposed to be provided for and financed by the proposed community facilities district are street and road facilities, including street lights and traffic signals, storm water drainage facilities, water system facilities, including capacity in existing facilities, sewer system facilities, including capacity in existing facilities and sewage treatment capacity, or such other facilities of the City which have a useful life of five years or longer(the “Facilities”).
(b) The incidental expenses which will be incurred are: (i) the cost of planning and designing such facilities and the cost of environmental evaluations thereof, (ii) all costs associated with the formation of the proposed community facilities district, issuance of the bonds thereof, the determination of the amount of and collection of taxes, and costs otherwise incurred in order to carry out the authorized purposes of the community facilities district, and (iii) any other expenses

The following is what is proposed that these properties pay for in the proposed Funding and Acquisition Agreement which is set for approximately $3.9 million, but the actually wiggle room requested expands to $6 million, therefore $2.1 million in taxpayer monies are questionable in appearance.

Funding and Acquisition Agreement For AG Park Development (aka Arroyo Park)

This was discussed at City Council at 2:00pm on March 3, 2015 on the discussion calender, public invited to speak on the this subject.  We believe this should not go forward until the issue is fully investigated by an outside independent agency with reference to the safety issues brought up by residents, but will appear again for discussion and approval April 28, 2015 at 3:00pm within the City Council Chambers.  Concerned community members should show up for this very important issue.

What public speakers had to say on the proposed issue:

kd03072015

Public speaker, Kevin Dawson, whom worked in the mortgage industry for years, speaks against the Community Facilities District issue being proposed for the AG Park (aka Arroyo Park) housing development.(click this link to view youtube).  He goes on to talk about capitalized interest, which is using borrowed money to pay the principle and interest of the project until the developer sells the houses. Therefore this benefits the developer for the first couple of years at the expense of the taxpayer.

scottandrews

SCOTT ANDREWS QUESTIONS SECTION 4 OF THE AGREEMENT (CLICK THIS LINK TO VIEW YOUTUBE).

Section 4. Special Taxes. Except where funds are otherwise available, special taxes sufficient to pay for all such facilities, to pay for debt service on other obligations of the City relating to such facilities, and to pay the principal of and interest on the bonds of the proposed community facilities district and the annual administrative expenses of the City and the proposed community facilities district in determining, apportioning, levying and collecting such special taxes, and in paying the principal of and interest on such bonds and the costs of registering, exchanging and transferring such bonds, secured by the recordation of a continuing lien against all taxable or nonexempt property in the proposed community facilities district, shall be annually levied within the proposed community facilities district.  This is also in the above Intention to Establish CFD, (Community Facilities District), but referring to Section 4.

AG PARK BACKGROUND: ACCORDING TO THE FOLLOWING CITY OF RIVERSIDE MEMO TO FILE PER DEBBIE ANDERSON, ASSOCIATED ENGINEER, THE DIGESTER BREAKAGE OCCURRED IN AND ABOUT JULY 1ST OR 2ND OF 2003 ACCORDING TO COX’S ENGINEER BOB BEERS.  This is important because Jorge Moreno, Office of Communications for the Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) stated that the department didn’t get involved until 2005, two years after the fact.  The response plan by DTSC, according to their records, was not approved until 2006.  You may ask, why?  We are asking the same questions.  Incidentally, DTSC is currently being investigated.

But again, we have Phil Pitchard, Intergovernmental and Communications Officer for the City of Riverside, contacting Kacey Montoya attempting to discredit and slander the Moreno’s.  They had recently been told by a former prior high profile executive within the City of Riverside, that the effort to remove them from there place of business was instigated by former Assistant City Manager Belinda Graham, as allegedly stated, “a personal vendetta.”  Mrs. Graham, who is known to work better horizontally, as opposed to vertically some city insiders have stated.  This contradicts the City of Riversides moniker as a business friendly city.  What is more remarkable, we found more small business owners have stated the same, but were afraid to openly state it for fear of retaliation.  What is that all about?  What it is about, is how the City of Riverside does business, and it’s not pretty.

Incidentally, Phil Pitchard previously worked for the Press Enterprise of which very little, obviously, has been reported with reference to the AG Park issue, although many residents surrounding this development have claimed illness and have reported family deaths to unusual circumstances.  Was Pritchard given the job by the city in order to covering up a really big stories such as AG Park?  Is he a journalist or a snake?  Cause we are snake trainers.  As his email indicates, his attempts to silence the message and slander the messenger.  I checked, Jorge Moreno is not related, thank god… PR person for DTSC who was quick to defend his department of any wrong doing.  Our suggestion is that the City of Riverside hire Jay Carney… at least he is more entertaining and can be part of a more believable spin.

Jay Carney had the art of words, and could have ‘splained just about any alleged malfeasance or bad press coming from the White House..

THE AG PARK ISSUE NOT GOING AWAY: THE COMMUNITY DISCUSSES THE ISSUE AT A PUBLIC MEETING IN DECEMBER OF 2014: COMMUNITY RESIDENTS ARE USING THE MONIKER “WHILE YOU ARE FILLING POCKETS, WE ARE FILLING COFFINS.”
Unanswered questions by the AG Park Community have continued to be unanswered.  The City of Riverside and the Developer Chuck Cox continue to play upon their talking points that the AG Park area is clean of toxins, and has been given a clean bill of health by DTSC.  Though the California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) is being investigated, they continue to defend their actions on AG Park, though were allegedly never their to witness samples taken for samples.  According to a 2013 Consumer Watchdog article they indicate an investigation of DTSC after a scathing report against them.  The report states that top DTSC administrators “play favorites and hamper the staff from performing their environmental duties, including within its Office of Criminal Investigations,” and DTSC “suffers from a bias toward industry encouraged by a revolving door between regulators, lobbyist and lawyers.  Sound familiar folks?

In one NBC investigation first reported February 2, 2013, “People are getting sick, people are dying and community members are crying out.” said one DTSC source.  “We’re not doing near enough; in fact, we are allowing it to happen.”  A second DTSC source stated, that the “expectation the public has of being protected is not being served.”  The hazardous waste tracking system seems to be problematic.  The investigative unit analyzed the most recent 13 years of hazardous waste tracking system data and found that 44 percent of the entries detailing types of hazardous waste were listed as blank, unknown or invalid.  It was found that part of the problem could be the DTSC staff itself.  A state audit by the California Department of Human Resources found that 59 percent of employees in the DTSC department were just not qualified to hold the positions they held.  There is simply no doubt that there are problems within the DTSC, and for the City of Riverside to claim a clean bill of health is debatable at the very least.

Back in August of 2014 a Senate Investigation found major problems with the State of California’s Department of Toxic Substance Control, specifically with DTSC falling down on the job and putting polluters before public health and the environment.  In another story, residents across California are stating that they are getting cancer and other illnesses due directly to weak regulation by DTSC.  Many of these companies were working with expired permits.

FOR SOME FOLKS LIVING IN THE AG PARK VICINITY IT APPEARS THAT IT IS BECOMING A TOXIC TRAIL OF TEARS..

ACCORDINGLY, TMC JUST LEARNED THAT FORMER AND FIRED CITY ATTORNEY CHRISTINA TALLEY WAS HAVING DIFFICULTY PAYING ATTENTION ON THE DAIS!  While it was noted by interim City Manager Lee McDougal at the Goeske Center, the Friday Morning club was told she had two phones, she would be texting someone on one and playing a “game” on the other.  This may answer the question as to why she appeared at times, surprised, as a deer caught in the headlights.  I as the CEO of the City of Riverside and employer would ask my council to ask for a part refund from Best, Best & Krieger for her lack of duties, as well as not representing the best interest of the taxpayers.  The City of Riverside hired the controversial law firm Best, Best & Krieger, who gave us one of their historically problematic attorneys, Christina Talley.

RIVERSIDE COUNCIL MEMBERS SIGN A COMPLAINT TO REMOVE THE LAW LICENSE OF FORMER RIVERSIDE DEPUTY ATTORNEY RAYCHELE STERLING.  In what appears to be a conspiratorial closed door retaliatory move, certain council member signed off on a bar complaint against former deputy attorney Sterling, in  what appears to a retaliatory move to silence her public speaking.  Sterling was fired for reporting fraud under former City Attorney Gregory Priamos.  As a result of the bar investigation their complaint was unfounded.  This was an attempt Councilman Steve Adams (who was also serving as Mayor Pro Tem at the time), Councilman Andy Melendrez, Councilman Chris MacArthur and new Councilman Jim Perry.  Councilman Mike Soubirous and Paul Davis refused to part of this underhanded activity and refused to sign the document.  What Adams didn’t know would happen, was that it open many closed session meetings to be made public.  This is going to definitely change the perspective of these councilmen when they listen to tapes that were never meant to be made public.

DID GOVERNOR BROWN CHOSE WELL WHEN IT CAME TO THE APPOINTMENT OF THE NEW RIVERSIDE COUNTY SUPERVISOR CHUCK WASHINGTON, TO TAKE THE PLACE OF LAW ENFORCEMENT IMPERSONATOR AND NEW SENATOR JEFF STONE?
While questions arose of why it took 3 months to appoint a replacement for Deputy Sheriff former Supervisor and new Senator Jeff Stone, how did the process for choosing Washington go forward?  But maybe the Riverside County Supervisors are ecstatic because of Washington’s association with Rancon Real Estate Development.  The process that Washington was involved continues to stink, no matter how many matches you use to curtail the smell, it smells.

cw

The disgusting part was that three of the five Temecula City Council had some connection to Rancon Real Estate, a development they needed to vote on.

The hotel’s owners are represented by an agent with Rancon Real Estate Corp. According to Thorson, Rancon Real Estate’s chief executive officer is Dan Stephenson, who also founded the Rancon Group, a Murrieta-based collection of development-related companies of which Comerchero is president and CEO.
Stephenson has been the top donor to all five council member’s political campaigns, and Roberts’ son is a Rancon Real Estate agent, although he is not the listed agent for the hotel.
Naggar and Washington are investors in limited liability companies managed by Stephenson, according to Thorson’s report. Naggar is also a real estate consultant to several of those companies.

So how many times has Washington possible voted in the past on conflict of interest issues that were not in the best interest of the tax payer?  How many times did the other two Council Bozo’s voted the same?  Questions are brewing as why he was markedly chosen for the position, was it because of Governor Brown obligations to union ties, and see that Washington.  Would SEIU have had a word with Brown to get Washington in?  After all, huge amounts of union monies are spent their campaigns.

Governor Jerry Brown did the bidding of the government employee unions? I never would have seen that coming… Good luck Riverside County! Maybe I’ll look at moving to San Bernardino County. Sure, they’ve been both corrupt and bankrupt, but at least they’re already on their way to recovery, while Riverside is only halfway to rock bottom.  –Bill Wallace, Commenter on the PE
$16 MILLION, MAYBE MORE SPENT ON OUTSIDE LEGAL IN THE LAST 5 YEARS!  We have to assume the majority of this money went to BB&K, of who we have not contracts or itemization of the any of the taxpayer work they do.  Just for argument sake, let’s take the amount of $16 million, that number is not set in stone of course because it very well could be $20 or $25 million.  If we divide $16 million by 5 years we arrive at $3.2 million per year.  Currently according to the article the City of Riverside employs 12 lawyers, you would think that it would be more cost effective to hire 16 additional attorneys at $200K per year.  Why doesn’t the City think smart?  Is it because they are too enbedded with some of these law firms, such as BB&K?  So much so that we even advertise for them at taxpayer expense, as you see on some bill boards around town?  For shame.
jcimg040
The question is if we the public “own it.” Why must we waste our profits in advertisements?  After all Riverside Public Utilities only serves the public.  I believe this wasteful advertisement money should be returned to the taxpayer, as well, as any other monies funneled into other creative financing accounts.
RUMOR MILL UPDATE ON FORMER RIVERSIDE UTILITIES ASSISTANT GENERAL MANAGER OF RESOURCES, AND NOW “RETIRED” PRIVATE CONSULTANT GARY NOLFF:  The word around the grapevine is that the controversy that ensued after the exposure of Nolff’s $200/hr consulting contract with Riverside Public Utilities, is the mysterious Mr. Nolff is now working for Best Best & Krieger, who is working for Riverside Public Utilities.  It is now our premise that in order for Nolff to distance himself from the Reiko Kerr controversy, the City of Riverside strategically asked BB&K to hire him.  Therefore, taxpayers monies are now being funneled through the no contract BB&K arrangement in order to pay Nolff’s consulting fees.  Again, residents are silently asking the question to TMC, for obvious fear of retaliation, what the heck’s going on here?  To many in the community these kind of relationships bear an uncanny resemblance to what some might call a “criminal organization.”  Again, don’t shoot the messenger BB&K: you made the incestuous bed you lie in.

Will this in essence bring the PE into a tail spin.  The Riverside Press Enterprise is under Freedom Communication, a group with a Libertarian background.
We’ve heard rumblings from various online PE commenters complaining that their comments were blocked/edited/removed.  Freedom of speech does not seem to claim precedence over getting across, “the agenda,” on the Press Enterprise comment section.  For one thing, TMC has been blocked… and many in the community have said the same.  So what is up Press Enterprise, are you the Fourth Branch of Government, or only Pravda?  We made a call months back and asked the PE if there was any reason that we, TMC, would be blocked from commenting.  They answered that there was no reason they felt we should be blocked, and there system as they saw it, showed that we were not blocked.  Well TMC did a test this week regarding one of their editorials: Innovation Changes the Climate Change.

Then we signed off, and voila!  The comment disappears.  Now you see it, now you don’t! PE readers have noticed the low amount of commenters, and less of those who can criticize.  Is this the new PE?  To control the message?  We welcome your comments, especially the PE.  Even though we felt that the PE didn’t tell us the truth, or just wasn’t privy to understand the real issues at hand, we felt this was important enough to know where the PE stands.  Is there an obligation to the public, or is it now just to an elite few?

OUR MUTUAL FRIEND: Urban legend has it that several years ago a RPU (Riverside Public Utilities) Assistant General Manager was caught leaving her boss’ hotel room during a business trip in the wee hours of the morning, looking like she was ridden hard and put up wet.  This rumor follows that a subordinate RPU employee eye-witnessed the walk of shame.  Allegedly, a letter was sent to the boss’ wife advising her of the situation, and all hell broke loose from there.  After some customary Riverside retaliation and harassment, this subordinate was eventually moved out of the division they worked in.  Why is this important? Why is this compelling? Because this behavior directly impacts the taxpayer and ratepayer. We’ll let you decide what really happened…romance or “hard” work?

In the spirit of the recent Dickens Festival, we at TMC are delighted to tell you the story (complete with flashbacks, irony, foreshadowing, symbolism, and every other literary device we learned in 10th grade) that we hope educates, entertains, and motivates … using the public documents, including travel expenses, that were provided to us courtesy of the City of Riverside at a cost of about $70.00. (Ten cents a page) That’s a lot of traveling on the taxpayer dime!

A TALE OF TWO CITY EMPLOYEES: Gary Nolff had a nice career at RPU (Riverside Public Utilities), rising from a Power Contracts Administrator in 1990, making $71,436/year until his retirement in December of 2011 as the Utilities Assistant General Manager of Resources, making over $181,392/year, with an extraordinary CalPERS retirement, paid for by we the taxpayer, waiting in the wings. If he had ridden off into the sunset, never to be heard from again, we might never have even had known he existed.

But Mr. Nolff didn’t…and our guess is by the time everything is said and done, he’ll wish he had.

In 2000, Reiko Kerr was hired by the RPU as a Utilities Principal Analyst, making $71,436/year.  By 2008, under Mr. Nolff’s “hands on” tutelage, the meteoric Ms. Kerr had reached the title of Utilities Projects/Contracts Manager, making $136,548/year. Ms. Kerr obviously enjoyed her time underneath Mr. Nolff! Today her salary is closer to $200,000.00. Have all employees of the city of Riverside tripled their salaries in 15 years?  Or was Ms. Kerr just outstanding in servicing her boss?  Inquiring minds want to know.

But like all things in the dear River City, the party couldn’t possibly stop there.  And so, with Mr. Nolff’s “retirement,” it was arranged that Ms. Kerr (who to our knowledge had exactly ZERO utilities experience in marketing, trading, operations, or planning at the time; and was by all accounts, a glorified accountant) would, without any other interviews of candidates, replace Mr. Nolff as Assistant General Manager of RPU – Resources division.  And with a whisk of his wand and a scattering of fairy dust, former General Manager David “the Kingpin” Wright made it so in early 2013.

GREAT EXPECTATIONS: Now Mr. Nolff was still a relatively young man, despite being “retired”, and decided to strike out on his own…well, sorta/kinda anyway. He formed his own company, Energy Management, LLC, in February of 2012, and waited. Waited for what? Well, the 180-day waiting period CalPERS requires to expire before he could go right back to work for Ms. Kerr at RPU as a consultant making $200/hr! (That’s the equivalent of $416,000/year for those doing the math at home).

And so, on November 7, 2012, Mr. Nolff was back on the scene at 3435 14th St. (aka, the Gateway Building), “double-dipping” underneath Ms. Kerr this time. The rapture! His contract was signed by Mr. Wright (Ms. Kerr’s boss), his invoices were sent to and approved by Utilities Projects/Contracts Manager Bob Tang (Ms. Kerr’s henchman, toadie, direct report), and his bills paid under Ms. Kerr’s division’s budget via Purchase Order.  Why is that all this technical mumbo-jumbo (we need Columbo!) important?  Well, you’ll just have to read further and find out!

Mr. Nolff was even given an office courtesy of Ms. Kerr from which to perform his duties: to perform the role of caretaker during the decommissioning (shutdown) phase of San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station. You see, the darn steam generators there, which were only a few years old at the time, just didn’t seem to want to work correctly, and that’s a bit of a problem when you’re dealing with radioactive material we’re told. Of course, Mr. Nolff was an expert in that particular arena: he had been instrumental in getting Riverside to sign onto buying the malfunctioning units in the first place while we employed him full-time. Now that’s what we at TMC call job security! By some estimates the total cost of that failed San Onofre deal to the ratepayers was about $90 million. Thank you Gary Nolff!

THE OLD CURIOSITY SHOP: In May of 2013, a public records request was made concerning Mr. Nolff’s new tryst (we had to check our dictionary for what that means) with the City. In tried and true fashion, the City Attorney’s Office summarily denied releasing any of these records (even redacted) under consigliere-client privilege: Tom Hagen would’ve been proud.  It was as if no one wanted the public to know he was even back working for the City.  I know, imagine that!

Eight months later, the following redacted public records of expenses incurred by Gary Nolff’s consulting firm, Energy Management LLC, mysteriously appeared in our inbox from the City Clerk. We place these here as an example of what roadblocks citizens must confront at times in the name of transparency.  We just recently got the unredacted versions (smooches for you, Lee McDougal), which will follow shortly that demonstrate the real meat of this transparency issue … stay tuned.

We took this salacious story to our appointed and elected officials and advised them that if employees are having affairs on the public’s time and dime, it needs to be made public.  You can cheat on your spouse…just don’t screw us please, even if you have protection.

THE MYSTERY OF GARY NOLFF: At the January 23, 2015, Board of Public Utilities meeting Ms. Reiko Kerr, Assistant General Manager of the Resources Division of Riverside Public Utilities stood her ground when given the chance to publicly address her accusers. “I did not hire Gary Nolff!” (or something to that effect; we didn’t take notes) Undeterred, the public asked more questions again at Utility Services Committee hearing three weeks later. “I did not hire Gary Nolff!” Ms. Kerr would (st)utter again.

Well, “Who did?” of course came the follow-up question.  And the answer to that will be forthcoming dear readers!  “Oh, what a tangled web we weave…when first we practice to deceive.” – quote not attributable to Charles Dickens.

What happens when your former boss is rumored to be having an affair with you and then “retires”; then you magically get his job?  Now that you are the boss, you return the favor and hire him back on a contract for $200/hr.  Higher than the new interim City Manager at $135/hr, or the attempt to bring back the former Fire Chief Earley at $100/hr to help the new regime? We get what we call abuse of taxpayer monies and further..misappropriation of funds.  Let’s call it what it is: favoritism, under the guise of a legitimate business arrangment.

Favoritism can cause undo stress within the workplace.  We did a story back in May 2011 regarding Sexual Favoritism in the Workplace.  In this posting we cited Miller vs. California Department of Corrections, whereby in office romances can cause favoritism in such a way that it can be considered harassment to the other employees. Employees in California may now sue their employers for sexual harassment if the sexual affair between a superior and a subordinate results in sexual favoritism. It is a Violation of the California Fair Employment and Housing Act.  Which means that if sexual favoritism exist, it can impede or interfere with another employees ability to advance within the workplace, therefore this can be cause for a lawsuit and costly liability.  The following link is a synopsis of Miller vs. California Department of Corrections.

TO BE CONTINUED…

UPDATE: 03.02.2015: PE ARTICLE WITH REFERENCE TO THE COST OF THE SAN ONOFRE SHUTDOWN: INCREASE IN UTILITY RATES?  One thing we’re learned here at TMC through our keen observation, the real story is the one not told…and so we’ll provide our own investigative reporting (or whatever the heck it is we do) on these events.

Former City of Riverside employee Jason Hunter makes Channel 9 News, click the link to view the coverage of last night’s City Council Meeting in Pasadena.  Hunter was fired from Riverside Public Utilities for attempting to expose fraud, just recently won a settlement against the City, as a result.

Local Riverside residents Jason Hunter and Vivian Moreno rev up the City of Pasadena’s Monday night City Council Meeting at public comment with the issue of recycled city executives.  Incidentally, both Hunter and Moreno were of the 15 winners of the 2014 VIC (Very Influential Citizen) Awards given out by the the Coalition for Better Government, Riverside.   The story broke a couple of weeks ago that $6.4 million in taxpayer monies were embezzled by a former Public Works employee, Danny Ray Wooten, for over a ten year period.  So who was minding the store?  Former Riverside Assistant City Manager Michael Beck, now Pasadena City Manager, and former Riverside Public Works Director Siobhan Foster, now Pasadena’s Public Works Director.  The question of recycled executives taking part of what we see a culture of corruption.

vCLICK THIS LINK TO VIEW YOUTUBE PUBLIC COMMENTS OF BOTH HUNTER AND MORENO IN PASADENA

Another fun fact is the the accounting firm of Mayer Hoffman McCann was the City of Pasadena’s!  Remember, Mayer Hoffman McCann was the same accounting firm that missed misappropriation of fund at the City of Bell.  Incidentally, Mayer Hoffman McCann had been the City of Riverside for quite some time.  Pasadena’s loss of $6.4 million beats Bell’s $5.5 million misappropriation of funds.

Incidentally, former interim City Attorney Christina Talley was the former City Attorney for the City of Pasadena during the years of 1994-1996, cities do recycle their employees!  She came here to Riverside, while we sent former Public Works Director Siobhan Foster and former Assistant City Manager Michael Beck to Pasadena.

TUESDAY’S COUNCIL MEETING NEWLY HIRED INTERIM CITY MANAGER LEE MCDOUGAL MADE SOME EAR SHATTERING COMMENTS.

Pu1T0UfvSGJyBBMf-r3kE2dJ-d6fbR2ktzstZ2nkWjkh1QUhkDIc0xkOsbm-1VNCfVrccqA5V7pcE74BVoRrQoCouncilman Paul Davis

At Tuesday’s City Council, on January 13, 2015, Councilman Paul Davis suggested that a independent auditor be hired to overlook the City of Riverside’s financials.  Someone completely independent of the City, in order to give an honest and forthright opinion, in order to prevent an event such as Pasadena. This was downplayed by Interim City Manager Lee McDougal, stating these were two different forms of city governments, hence there are differences in how financials are processed for payouts.  He went on to state that the City of Riverside has an Internal Auditor who oversees our financials, thus implying no need for an independent auditor.  Interim City Manager McDougal just arrived and has already contradicted himself, because the City’s Internal Auditor works for the City, already a contradiction. The City Manager and the Internal Auditor need to know that they work for the pleasure of the Council, and more importantly, they work for the employers who pay their salaries…the Taxpayers.  Incidentally, McDougal made in known that the position of the Internal Auditor had been elevated to Assistant City Manager.  With Lee’s scenario, will Riverside have another Bell or Pasadena?

Interim Riverside City Manager Lee McDougal

McDougal also seemed to take offense at the public criticizing staff and employees, and attempted what seemingly was to “hard ball” public criticism; the taxpayer and employer.  Well, Mr. McDougal needs to read up on California Assembly Bill 194, Section 1, 54954.3 to start.  Should we call it taxpayer insubordination?

We refer specifically to the following:

(c) (1) Subject to reasonable regulations promulgated pursuant to subdivision (b), the legislative body of a local agency, or its presiding officer or staff, acting in their official capacity on behalf of the legislative body, shall not prohibit, limit, or otherwise prevent any of the following:
(A) Public criticism of the policies, procedures, programs, or services of the agency, or of the acts or omissions of the legislative body or its officers or employees acting in their official capacity.

Therefore, Mr. McDougal, don’t tell your boss, the taxpayer, that they don’t have the right to criticize their government staff, you may also want to take a look at Baca vs. Moreno Valley.

Unlike our former wimpy City Manager Scott Barber, we find it appealing and respectful, that at least this Interim City Manager lays his cards on the table, and that’s a good thing, because we all love a lively debate, especially when it comes to debating for the absolute benefits of the taxpayer.  Let’s remember, TMC’s focus is taxpayers fighting for the greater good of taxpayers, and that’s, that.

But if McDougal was referring to the Reiko Kerr/Gary Nolff alleged incident or Darlene Elliot, then he must certainly need to do his homework.  Again, Welcome to the City of Riverside….hopefully you can handle it.

Carol Brodeur · Commenter in the Press Enterprise.

It appears that the interim city manager of Riverside would like to restrict free speech. Lee Mcdougal has threatened that “I will respond” if someone rebukes city employees. I would like to know what he intends to do? “There’s nothing in the charter that allows a resident to come to a city council meeting and berate a city employee,” said he. Hmmm. How about in the CONSTITUTION? “It’s unacceptable to me, and I will respond…uh…when that happens. So you should know that in advance.” Is he going to call Chief Sergio Diaz and have people arrested? Personally, I am glad that Vivian Moreno called Mayor Bailey on his $50 price for attending the upcoming “State of the City” address.

UPDATE: 01.15.2015: TO BE FAIR, CITY ATTORNEY LEE MCDOUGAL HAS BEEN REACHING OUT TO COMMUNITY INDIVIDUAL AND SETTING MEETING TO DISCUSS ISSUES.  Which we believe is a first for Riverside.  He was a bit taken back by when told what the residents perceived he meant by his statements made on Tuesday’s City Council meeting.  It appeared to us that what he said was not directed to any thing said at City Council public comment or by any emails or complaints made by any individual or residents regarding the city or staff.

CITY OF RIVERSIDE CANCELS BB&K CONTRACT FOR CITY ATTORNEY SERVICES:  This means that BB&K Attorney Christina Talley will no longer act as the Interim City Manager for the City of Riverside.  In her place, Supervising Deputy City Attorney Kristi Smith will now assume the position of City Attorney.  Taxpayers were paying BB&K $19,500 per month for her wonderful legal advice.  Well good riddance..
