It seems to me that the city of Oroville just likes to fight with anyone who tries to make Oroville better. I haven't lived in Oroville in 26 years but it is where I grew up. I loved Oroville and the opportunities provided to me there. I applaud people like Bob Sharkey and FRRPD, I enjoyed their parks all through my childhood, they should get what they are asking and be able to spend it as they see fit. Yes there should be some coordination with the city to avoid duplication of efforts, but FRRPD should be autonomous. They are governed by some of the same regulations as the city when it comes to spending public funds. City of Oroville, Get over yourselves and quit waisting public money trying to litigate every good thing some other agency (Public or Private) trys to do for Oroville

unfortunately, the person who wrote the article is absolutely one-sided and completely biased. Just read the article and it screams like of objectivity. Its really sad because the one link between local government and the public is the media. If you think the media at the national level is political, it is equally at the local level. I find it sad that the newsreporter is not truthfully reporting the information about the meetings.

If you attended any of the meetings, you would see the article is accurate, and the articles on the meetings between the city and FRRPD haven't reflected a fraction of the negitivity and incivility projected by some of the councilmen toward FRRPD. The reporter is reporting the facts, regardless if some people don't want to hear the truth. Have a good day.

Mr. Snow is correct. I attended the FRRPD meeting at the SS Community Center and I found the article to be very accurate. It was a long meeting with a ton of dialogue. But I found that Ms. Weston fairly reported the story. I unfortunately was unable to attend the City Council meeting. did though leave the FRRPD meeting with optimism. I felt that it was very productive. The main issue that I see blocking this agreement is that Councilman Prouty believes that this is a duplicated fee. I myself see it not as a duplication, but as two entities sharing a percentage of a whole. One other serious concern that I came out with was that none of the City Council members or the City Administrator had any idea whether or not the funds that the City had been collecting all of these years have actually been spent the way they were supposed to. There was a lot of talk about the required mitigated reports for the funds that FRRPD would be responsible for completing should they get the impact fees. I asked if the City had been completing these reports and all of the City folks had a "deer in the headlights" look about them. The City administrator had no idea how long it had been since a report was completed.
