    Oct 10, 2018 | Victorville Daily Press

    Public corruption allegations made by Councilwoman Blanca Gomez against current and former city officials will not be forwarded by the Council to the District Attorney's Office or Grand Jury for further review.

    Sep 24, 2018 | Victorville Daily Press

    The City Attorney's office will defend Mayor Gloria Garcia in a civil harassment case that arose from a disputed August encounter inside a Victorville restaurant. The 3-1 Council decision earlier this month to allow Green de Bortnowsky, the law firm of City Attorney Andre de Bortnowsky, to represent Garcia had raised questions - primarily from Councilwoman Blanca Gomez - over whether taxpayer dollars were being used improperly.

  7. Draped in religious symbol, Gomez rebuked for series of controversial behaviorRead the original story w/Photo

    Aug 22, 2018 | Victorville Daily Press

    Citing a string of controversial behavior, Councilwoman Blanca Gomez's fellow elected colleagues Tuesday evening issued a public statement of disapproval against her conduct in the latest effort to distance themselves from the beleaguered policymaker. The statement - short of an official censure measure, according to Jim Kennedy, the councilman who proposed it - is entirely symbolic and holds no implications other than to act as an on-record rebuke.

  8. City rolled dice on Metzler. Now he's cleared in SEC caseRead the original story w/Photo

    Jul 24, 2018 | Victorville Daily Press

    In April, elected officials elevated Keith Metzler, then the interim City Manager, to become Victorville's permanent top administrator after less than four months of having taken over for Doug Robertson, who departed for Apple Valley on Jan. 2. At the time, it was viewed as a shrewd move to promote Metzler, who had risen from the rank of intern in 1996, to economic development chief in 2003, to assistant city manager in 2011, and who carries a wealth of institutional knowledge.

    Jun 23, 2018 | Victorville Daily Press

    By a 2-1 vote, the Green Tree Golf Course budget on Tuesday failed to pass for this coming fiscal year, raising serious questions about whether the 18-hole course might close if even only temporarily. "At this point, we are looking into our options for how to move forward," city spokeswoman Sue Jones said the next day.

  10. Unable to secure Victorville's blessing, Chalice Festival appears on way outRead the original story w/Photo

    Jun 14, 2018 | Victorville Daily Press

    City officials will almost certainly let Chalice Festival - a cannabis-themed art and music event held at the fairgrounds the past two years - depart once next month's significantly scaled-back version wraps up. The majority Council has shown no appetite to issue a letter of support to accompany the three-day festival's permit application with the state Bureau of Cannabis Control.

  12. Even after Measure K, public safety tax talks not entirely dead in VictorvilleRead the original story w/Photo

    Apr 6, 2018 | Victorville Daily Press

    Even as officials tout the cost savings they expect to realize from transitioning to the City Fire Department, the long-term price of public safety services - including law enforcement - has never been brushed aside as a resolved matter. When Measure K, the proposed half-percent sales tax exclusively for public safety, failed to acquire the two-thirds majority vote in November - it was supported by 62 percent - the city saw a projected yearly $8.5 million supplemental windfall slip through its clutches.

    Mar 26, 2018 | Victorville Daily Press

    Mar 22, 2018 | Victorville Daily Press

    Talks behind closed doors over ongoing litigation Tuesday escalated to a blow-up inside City Hall, leading Mayor Gloria Garcia to feel physically threatened by Councilwoman Blanca Gomez, whose provocative method of rebelling against what she views as political opacity has continued to alienate a growing base of city officials. Following a disagreement about the course of action in litigation that involved a company at the airport, the closed session was cut short and Gomez launched into a verbal tirade, according to four officials who spoke to the Daily Press.

    Mar 7, 2018 | Victorville Daily Press

    The city's airport authority will appeal a recent loss in court against an aviation asset management company over a disputed hangar, City Attorney Andre de Bortnowski said Tuesday. Last month, San Bernardino County Judge Wilfred J. Schneider Jr. ruled that ComAv, which employs more than 300 workers at Southern California Logistics Airport, was entitled to a month-to-month tenancy at Hangar 681 after a sublease agreement between the airport and a ComAv partner expired in June 2016.

    Feb 8, 2018 | Victorville Daily Press

    After Councilwoman Blanca Gomez was asked on two occasions to leave a homeless warming shelter over the weekend, the city attorney will review the policy on elected officials representing the Council during unofficial visits.

The City Council voted in closed session to appoint Metzler - who had been the logical choice - to act as city manager and also to authorize City Attorney Andre de Bortnowsky to negotiate a contract with him.
