If your referring to the certain community center, No! It should be left alone.Are we going to change everything just because we dont like that certain person? I did not vote for Victor but I do give him credit for all he did for the city.So no leave things the way it is.

Toe-nia at it again." why dont you your own research thenmake a comment!" you will find that mayor lopez was very active in getting funding for this city he was a individual assisting and working with staff, mayor lopez did not sit on his ass and hope for it to rain money on the city?" wake up people. Lets see how much money they bring in; lets see if john rankin was telling the truth that mayor lopez was keeping funds from the fire department which was a lie" how much money is the new council giving the F.D this year john?" you said that the new council would give the F.D all the RDA funds is that in the works john rankin? What is the mid year budget going to look like eldon you all were so sure that the mayor was not doing a good job. I want to see what this new council is all about, we all get to see what kind of job they are doing!

Ask 'em yourself, man. Victor set up the RDA to steal the Fire District assesment, which has amounted to well over $1Million over the past three decades.

You call it a lie? Facts are facts, and if you want to deny the truth, that's your business.

The truth really can set you free...

So if it was fact being that glenda hill and her cronies had the majority for over two years now why havent the RDA funds been returned to the F.D ???? Now with the new mayor and council member frank martinez are they gonna givethe FD any money this new year and the next answere the question john rankin aka sunshine!" what is the mid year budget looking like? I would bet all in if you would the city is already in a deficit probably near a half million dollars,wake up orange cove were headed in the wrong direction!

Mr. Man let's get a couple of things straight. First, Victor Lopez cost the city of Orange Cove a Million Dollars by ignoring state and federal laws and by breaking his own city municiple code in regards to the BMX park mess. Victor by ignoring rules and regulations along with Bill Little put this city in a hole. Second of all Victor Lopez the ex-Mayor did take money from the Fire Dept by setting up the RDA. He did not like the fire dept becuase he had no control over it and if Victor does not have the power and control he is against it. Man you mentioned the new council Glenda,Esther and Gilbert in regards to the fire dept and the RDA, let me fill you in on a little secret they voted to give the fire dept. 100,000 dollars that is more than Victor gave to them in over 20 years. The fire dept got denied by Victor and his council for 20 years. There is alot more but I'm sure everybody gets the point. The truth is the truth.

'little' "Man" ...

"same ol same ol" lets blame the previous mayor hahaha sorry thats going to work!"

FINALLY - YOU made a truthful statement - "thats going to work!"

The somewhat ironic aspect is that the City Council is not trying to "blame the previous mayor" in a malicious way. The correction to the Council minutes at the Dec 29 meeting, made while approving the Consent Agenda, was for clarification on the deficit referenced in a prior Council meeting.

Nearly half of the deficit, was attributable to the DIRECT cost of the BMX Park. After comments and questions from the current Council the Finance Department confirmed that the BMX Park CO$T the City at least "$850,000" (from the City's general fund)!!!

A Public Records Act request is being submitted to the City for a detailed report as to the TOTAL COST of this White Elephant that is an on-going ca$h flow drain on the City taxpayers. Response to the CA Parks & Rec audit, was a HUGE Co$t to the City! 100's of person-hours of time required from various City Departments, such as;

1) City Manager at about $65/hour
2) City Clerk at about $35/hour
3) Finance Department at about $45/hour
4) City Attorney at about $150/hour

ALL of these costs are attributable to the Lopez/Little administration (and the Lopez dominated Council). This has been memorialized in two sets of documents;

1) The CA Parks & Rec Audit (available from the City with a Public Records Act request),

2) The Fresno County Grand Jury Report #10 ( http://www.fresnosuperiorcourt.org/_pdfs/Gran... (2009-10).pdf)

I believe the intent of the Council and other individuals that are "setting the record straight", want all of the public to understand the real facts in these matters. Not the spin and hyperbole of the Lopez histrionics.

If the EX-mayor chooses to continue publishing his memoirs ("Victor Lopez takes a look back at his years of service to the city" .. Orange Cove and Mountain Times, Jan 5, 2011), then he and his fanz must accept the publication of "The rest of the story..".
