Wait a minute-this thing was signed on October 3rd???????? I watched the last two City Council videos where they went into closed session about real property NEGOTIATIONS and came out and said they had NOTHING TO REPORT! Why didnít they REPORT this and DISCLOSE it to the public when they signed the darn thing? They werenít NEGOTIATING in the last two closed session meetings---IT WAS ALREADY SIGNED weeks earlier!!!! HOW ON EARTH can the city council LIE and call it negotiations when a contract has already been signed. Why didnít they tell us they signed it? HOW ON EARTH can this small group behind closed doors, commit this city and the STRUGGLING tax payers to a MOUNTAIN OF NEW DEBT of over $32,000,000 (who knows what it will be after financing costs) AND set up the Podegracz so-called ďJoint Power AuthorityĒ(I.E. TAXING AUTHORTIY THAT DOESNíT REQUIRE A TAXPAYER VOTE) without coming out in the open with it? Sounds like it could be a criminal Brown Act Violation? But Iím guessing the slick talker who said ďnothing to reportĒ in the meeting already has a plan for that too! There can only be one reason they didnít disclose this properly! There can only be one reason why we heard NOTHING about a contract that was singed a month ago. Itís because they know this community will not like spending all this money, and they are scared of this all getting out in the open, particularly before the ELECTIONS. THEY INTENTINALLY HID THIS MOUNTAIN OF DEBT THEY HAVE SIGNED US UP FOR. IS IT TOO LATE TO STOP THIS? THERE SHOULD BE A WAY BECAUSE THEY LIED AT CITY COUNCIL MEETINGS AND DIDNíT DISCLOSE A SIGNED CONTRACT.

Good Job Rene, at this point we have gotten more information from you than we have from our own CITY COUNCIL whose job (and legal requirement) it is to keep us informed and include us in the process. Just watch------this corrupt City Council will be cleaning up their tracks now that it is out in the open.
