She was heard and I for one have heard her enough . It wasn't profiling nor do I believe this community need her to bring up the problems of the past . Because someone does not get their way does not mean they are not heard. The 287G is with the county sheriffs not City of Fontana PD . You would think that someone that wants to run for Mayor would now that by now. Keep in mind ,we have a Federal law on legality Bobbi Jo Chavarria . She fights for attention not the good of the people in City Of Fontana . I do not agree with local authorities enforcing Federal law but Federal law must be enforced . I will never support anyone that considers Gangs as friends as she said in her first commentary in which I viewed a few times .

I would suggest Councilwoman Warren to run for mayor if she fails to get the nomination for AD 63.

I am going to support Mayor Mark . He has done and outstanding job. You have to look att he times. What your are seeing her is a group trying to take over your City. They want a different type of life in your City. Where the Criminals get first choice. The Fontana Police are only guilty of one thing they are not tuff enough. Their are still gang members in your City. Mayor Mark has to deal with old Fontana and new Fontana. This person running against Mayor Mark want to take from new Fontana and support the Criminals. Mayor Mark support both the Honest Citizens in new Fontana and Old Fontana.

Most of what Old Fontana need is code enforcement to get residents that are not maintaining their property .The old will never be new again but maintained and in compliance . The foreclosing homes new or old as well . The real problem is Code enforcement works off work requests -off call-ins . Mark has done a great job for us and hope he decides to run again . She will have no chance .Even I will go to the streets and contests her position .

Green Lawns and Community Pride
Community Member Question:

My question is how do you think we can get residents to protect their right to a clean community and make them realize that a cleaner community is safer and has higher investment value, not to mention the pride one gets from the complements of friend and neighbors and the feeling of great accomplishment?

City Manager Response:

I believe it is intuitive for most residents that the proper maintenance of their property is perhaps the single most important factor in improving the value of their investment in Fontana. With that said, you can drive through many neighborhoods in Fontana and see both good and bad examples of people taking pride in the appearance of their property. In a discussion about what the City can do about the properties in disrepair, it is first worth understanding some of the causes behind property maintenance issues.

In the current economic market, many homes have fallen into disrepair because of financial difficulties and foreclosure problems with the owners. Fontana has several City codes that require an appropriate level of property maintenance. When a foreclosed property falls into disrepair, our Code Enforcement Division of the Police Department makes contact with the banks and notifies them of their need to maintain the property. Some banks act as responsible partners and step up to maintain the properties while others do not. Those who do not correct deficiencies are cited and liens are placed against the properties that require corrective action before the properties can be resold. Many properties in the City have been brought to a point of compliance using this tactic. In extreme circumstances in which health and welfare become issues, the City may pursue and obtain a court order to fix the noted problems and then to place the cost of such work as a lien against the property that must be paid prior to resale as well.

The second challenge for poorly maintained properties comes from homes that are bought for investment purposes and are rented out by an individual who may not live in the City. Such properties are often purchased for tax advantages or cash purposes and proper maintenance of those properties is often a secondary consideration. Code Enforcement is also a tool in these instances to address such deficiencies. Code Enforcement Officers will make contact with the property owner and initiate whatever action is necessary to try to achieve compliance with the standards the community has come to expect.

A third challenge comes from owner-occupied properties that are owned by individuals who may not be financially or physically able to maintain their property. The City has developed a Community Assistance Program (CAP) in partnership with the Water of Life Church who may be able to find resources and/or assistance to help such owners with free services. Some service clubs in town have also stepped forward to help needy families with landscaping and maintenance needs who are in special circumstances.

The bottom line in dealing with these issues is for the residents to take pride and ownership in their neighborhoods. Not only with the properties they own, but also in notifying the City when properties in your neighborhood need some special attention. Contacts for both Code Enforcement and the Community Assistance Program (CAP) can be found on the City’s Web page at http://www.fontana.org/ . Fontana is a big place and the employees of this wonderful community need your help. When you have concerns about the condition of a property, please contact us. By working as one community we can accomplish great things.

Acorn must be stopped here. If not they will begin to permeate all local governments to spread their mis information and scandal.

While I can understand the issues many of you have with Mayor Mark (not his biggest fan either), it would behoove us all to keep a lengthy distance from ANYONE even remotely affiliated with ACORN...
They have NOT proven themselves to be "upstanding" as an organization, many of their branches are currently under investigations of one form or another, and their practices have been shown to benefit NOBODY except ACORN...
Who do you think got some of those "fine folks" into those now foreclosed homes?...ACORN...
Who do you think directed many of them to abandon those same properties?...ACORN...

Please, do your research...ACORN is nothing more than an avenue to steal taxpayer dollars...If you think for one minute that they get from the rich to give to the poor, you're sorely mis-informed...They were an integral part in creating the housing crisis, and mass abuse of the funds they were allotted out of OUR pockets...To the point that their Federal $$$ has been cut off...
Not anything Fontana, or any other city, needs...

We all move in to a area because it is clean and we feel is safe . This keeps our property values up on our Investments and many time safer because we have responsible neighbors . Those who take away that right have to deal with the policies so the community doesn't degrade . You can call it a snitch or standing up for what most of any community looks for . Most people don't try to help change whats wrong , instead they move and some times find them selves later in the same position . The real question is why do people look for the nicest area they can provide for their family and then become the blight to the new neighborhood disrespecting the reason the others moved there too ?

Well said...EVERY property owner has the RIGHT to have their neighborhood safe, clean, and decent...The "legal" term is called "Peaceful Enjoyment", where no one is allowed to deprive you of YOUR individual right to enjoy where you live...Laws like this are the sole reason that Code Enforcement exists...Sure, there are certain "codes" we all must adhere to,but it's awful hard to litigate based on "codes" vs. "laws"...
If the "code" states that the neighbor across the street cannot use their fence as a clothes-line, but a quick drive-by tells you it's "laundry day", your RIGHT to peaceful enjoyment is being violated...
If a foreclosed property is not being tended to per "code", once again it infringes on your RIGHT to peaceful enjoyment, since the over-all appearance (good or bad) affects your property value...

I say kudo's to those who "snitch"...If more folks would demand better, Fontana would not have the amount of "blight" that currently exists...

Here's a real situation I had recently with a neighbor in a City where I have a rental . I was looking to purchase a home in a track setting . Their was a neighbor across the street that had 5 mattresses against her car out by the sidewalk . I made my bid and won .Escrow took a month . Mattress were still there . I spent a month and 8,000 improving the home ,most on the exterior .During this time I spoke to the nice residents as well as other around me . I stopped the trash man and asked about the Free bulky Item pick up policy ,he replied they take five items twice a year when one schedules a appointment . I gave her a card with some information and she seemed surprised .I called the number for her and handed her my phone to verify the info. and call for free removal. She gave it back and said she would do it later .Another month went by as I was showing the rental property and still they were there . So I made a call and she took advantage of the information. In speaking to some of the neighbors and prospective tenants some pointed the mattresses out as well as her all dirt yard . I just turned in the mattresses . The neighbor thank me because they wanted it gone too but felt uncomfortable with calling .Most people look for the cleanest place they can afford including tenant . What happens after wards is up to the individuals around . You can call that snitching .I call that protecting my investment and I will do that again if needed. I take no pleasure in doing so but they put me in that position.

Are you joking?????? She will fail AD 63 and as a Mayor for Fontana. She's a joke.

Wow, the fact someone from a seriously discredited organization like ACORN has the guts to even think about running for mayor, let alone dog catcher, scares me to death. How our society and political system has deteriorated is what allows her to think she could actually be the mayor. It's obvious she thinks Fontana is her next stepping stone to political corruption and easy money to line her pockets, once again, tax payer money. ACORN is as corrupt as any organization can be.
