LDPCSD NOVEMBER 16 2020
Sorry, having to use Notepad due to a maxed out operating drive on my desktop. Might as well apologize for some expressive language. SOME ADULT CONTENT FOLLOWS. lol
Danny Johnson opens: Hankemier absent, may be in later. Start 1305hrs. Late just like the majority of meetings since these dishonest clowns have been in charge.
Pledge of allegiance? To what by these apparent socialist left traitors to American ideals – not to mention our district and the legal customers of the residential subdivision?
Public Comment: West Barton is told to stand where he was to speak…… Wes Barton, said he was going to read his comment and then disappear.
WES: Questions the trend of the district. Waste report confusing. MBL report and the price increase comments. Hope you didn’t pay $50-$60,000 to raise rates through a Prop 218. Has not been 5 years, has been 10 years. OES report – must follow income measurements for an allowable deal, we are a disadvantaged community and must follow the affordability numbers. Problem is even worse now. Nothing in the report discusses that variable of being a disadvantaged community.
LDPCSD has not done a great job. Payroll bounces all over the place, up and down. Doesn’t make sense when supposed to be representing the community not employee structure. Numbers must support these grants. Wes then began to criticize some of the GM’s activities
PRESIDENT JOHNSON REFUSED TO ALLOW WES BARTON TO EXPRESS HIS OPINION REGARDING THE GM’S PERFORMANCE IN A PUBLIC COMMENT?
WOW! WAIT UNTIL YOU HEAR WHAT GOOD ‘ol LEFTIST DANNY SAYS TO THE GM towards the end of the meeting! (Then quickly backed down giving GM exactly what he wanted! What what they do if they lost another GM? Focus would be totally on those crooks! lol)
THE REST OF THE MEETING IS NOT WORTH MY TIME TO REPORT> LISTEN TO IT YOURSELF IF YOU GIVE A SHIT ABOUT GREATLY INCREASED RATES AND FEES BECAUSE OF BOARD CORRUPTION AND THEIR PAST INTENTIONAL FAILURE TO ABIDE BY THE WATER LICENSE RESTRICTIONS. THIS IS NO DIFFERENT THAT OUR CURRENT 2020 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION AND MEDIA LIKE CNN (Covid News Network – “it’s all Trump’s fault” you know? Heck China Joe can sell out his country for profit and these fake-news reporters believe Burisma Biden would have made a great president? President of what? The new conquest by the CCP?) SIMPLE SUPPRESSION OF OTHER VIEWS (which are most often the truth) THAT DO NOT MEET WITH A SPECIAL INTEREST MOTIVATED GOVERNING BOARD OF DIRECTORS WHO HAVE FOR SEVERAL YEARS NOW COMPLETELY BETRAYED THIS COMMUNITY IN FAVOR OF EXPANDING WATER SERVICES TO PROPERTY OWNERS THIS DISTRICT HAS NO LEGAL DUTY OR MORAL OBLIGATION TO PROVIDE JACK SQUAT.
(Yeah, I’m back. My own curiosity brings me back – but then I want to share the foolishness with others….so, I’ll try to carry on but will not hold back instantaneous reactions to what these BORED of DEFECTORS present.)
No president’s report from Danny Johnson? Anyone surprised? lol
PRESENTATION: NBS……Jordon Taylor Kim Bayler, Southern California. San Diego area. Presentation starts on page 20. These are the consultants the district is paying $20,000 – $30,000 to help them raise our rates and fees!
Working with Patrick for several months on how to raise LDPCSD rates on customers.
Frankly, to me, it sounded just like the radical left explaining why the 2020 Presidential Election was the most secure in American history. These people make money by showing crooked districts like the LDPCSD how to raise rates on already victimized customers that do not even have the right to complain (during PUBLIC COMMENT PORTIONS OF A PUBLIC MEETING) about management activities which negatively affect the legal customer.
Consider- LDPCSD customers currently have ABSOLUTELY NO CONTROL OVER THEIR OWN LOCAL COMMUNITY SERVICES DISTRICT yet these “consultants” only want to greatly increase the financial workings of the district with even more power and control to management and the board while leaving the customers in an even worse position financially. Serving the customer is the secondary issue, the first issue is money and power which the LDPCSD has already OBVIOUSLY PROVED IT’S DEDICATED REFUSAL TO USE IN AN ETHICAL AND PROPER MANNER FOR THE CUSTOMER’S BENEFIT. The legal customer, just like the legal US CITIZEN, is now at the bottom of the list when it comes to “what is best for everyone”.
(Why the heck do you think they brought back a crook like PETER KAMPA to the original scene of the crime? Simple – to finish his surreptitious LAFCO ANNEXATION SCAM with state and federal grant money needed for his required groundwater wells to supply a “water substitution” for all OUR quality MERCED RIVER WATER UNDER WATER LICENSE 11395 illegally leaving the APPROVED – ENTITLED LDP residential subdivision!
Essentially stealing from us. That’s why I’ve always said:
THEY DIDN’T WANT OUR SUBDIVISION LAND WITH WATER
ONLY OUR SUBDIVISION WATER ON THEIR LAND!
CONSIDER: Every single owner of Lake Don Pedro Subdivision property served by the LDPCSD (perfect example of a California Special District FRAUD) has paid more for their water service than LEGALLY NECESSARY because they have been quietly SUBSIDIZING A SECRET GROUNDWATER SUBSTITUTION PROGRAM to furnish EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE GROUND WELL WATER to properties outside the legal place of use for OUR PRIMARY and BETTER QUALITY MERCED RIVER WATER IN LAKE Mc CLURE under WL11395! (REM? This is a drought prone and groundwater well unreliable region) We now have to drink a “blended” water that has been treated for various contaminant removal such as arsenic that is not found in the quality Merced River water. WE WERE ENTITLED TO THE QUALITY MERCED RIVER WATER not a Frankenstein blend of water just so it can be sold elsewhere for the same price LEGAL CUSTOMERS PAY. They wanted to develop several entire residential foothill subdivisions while forcing the MANDATORY CUSTOMERS FROM THE ENTITLED LAKE DON PEDRO SUBDIVISION TO PAY FOR THE OUTRAGEOUS EXTRA COSTS! Surely those requiring a special benefit water service should pay for what they use themselves.)
Now WE are paying such “consultants” tens of thousands of dollars so they can assist this pathetic BORED OF DEFECTORS and their “MERCED IRRIGATION DISTRICT cooperating GM/TREASURER” in victimizing the customer even further than they have already.
CONSIDER: only one left. One person who after decades of dedicated public service already, still took the time to study the information contained in the agenda and packet, prepare a written comment to read for the meeting record and attended the meeting …. a man who in addition to being a concerned customer and long time meeting attendee, former board director and consultant, is also a very honest individual – PROHIBITED FROM SPEAKING during the PUBLIC COMMENT PORTION OF THE LDPCSD BOARD MEETING by a lying, duplicitous, cheating, scumbag scoundrel like Danny Johnson. Danny FUCKING Johnson who sold out our local district and all the legal water consuming customers of the entitled residential subdivision.
Suppression of free speech? Wes Barton? Honest, sincere, logical free speech prevented during a legally required PUBLIC COMMENT PORTION OF A LOCAL GOVERNMENT PUBLIC MEETING? Sound familiar? Denied an opportunity to read a prepared comment by someone like Danny Johnson who has done nothing but deceive the public since 2014 about Kampa’s secret 1995 (LAFCO APPROVED?) proposed 900 ac residential subdivision across from the LDPCSD office (second office remember? First one destroyed by arson during investigation of outside place of use properties receiving LDPCSD water? Called a clue my friends, a big fucking clue.) Anyway, where was I? Kampa had a whole slew of secret projects and developments annexed into the district in the 1990s requiring water service…..Naw, it was something else……Oh yeah,
Danny Johnson can’t restrict my free speech here, so, for my own record and to clarify any (unlikely) confusion on the matter, I believe Danny Johnson is an unethical lying piece of shit and was working with Kampa for some time before even becoming an LDPCSD director, furthermore, he is an arrogant, leftist jackass who will eventually be eaten by his “own kind” if this country is unfortunate enough to inherit another professional political crook like Hidd’n Biden!)
These consultants talk alot about customers and their concerns all the time but have no idea of what has been done to the mandatory LDPCSD customers of the LDP subdivision since the beginning of this FRAUD OF A CALIFORNIA SPECIAL DISTRICT in 1980! Hell, 10 years before the LDPCSD was formed by two cooperating LAFCOs, the “FUTURE SUBDIVISION RESIDENTS AND ABSENTEE OWNERS” were already being set up as the “DEEP POCKET” for a foothill water empire scheme.
These consultants are not helping to fund a CALIFORNIA SPECIAL DISTRICT, BUT rather the epitome of a CALIFORNIA SPECIAL DISTRICT FRAUD! (Characteristics of a special district? Limited service, particular group of people as customers, defined area of service and service provided for only the costs necessary in furnishing that service to the entitled group.)
These consultant folks assist the board in providing the gun,loading the gun, aiming the gun at the customer’s head, then politely ask the customers to vote YES ON A PROP 218 so they can keep there water service for survival and POW! shoot themselves! That way, if 50% plus 1 DO NOT WRITE IN PROTEST AND STOP THE INCREASE it’s all the victim’s fault! An obvious case of suicide. Diabolical yeah?
Johnson talks about his thinking about the “bulk of our customers”? A little late Danny. You should have been thinking about the customers in 2014 when you unethically brought Peter Kampa back here to reconfigure our surface water treatment plant into a Groundwater substitution facility for owners of LAFCO properties OUTSIDE THE LEGAL PLACE OF USE FOR WATER LICENSE 11395! Danny Johnson is an extremely dishonest individual as are the rest of the board members who support such customer betrayal.
93% residential customers, 14 commercial customers . I wonder, is commercial cattle rancher and long time board director EMERY ROSS a commercial customer or a residential customer when his two meters provide treated domestic water intended for the subdivision to his cattle for pursuit of an ultimate private commercial profit? Me thinks he owes us all a steak or two?
Elasticity concept: did consultants account for that? NO! Which is: ……How many people dramatically reduce water consumption when price goes too high? Good point by the cattle ranching director Ross who said he will reduce his cattle water consumption. Just like any BLOATED GOVERNMENT…. taxpayers pay more and receive less, and less, and less…..
This board and their new MERCED IRRIGATION DISTRICT COOPERATING GENERAL MANAGER throws our public funds around without responsibility or accountability and now they want us to again approve providing them more of our money to misuse for their special interest agenda – the last several years in violation of law which they now cover up with another rate increase. Unbelievable. We still had a million in cash in the bank before Kampa used it to leverage grants for the groundwater wells. Directors seem to think replacing the million is enough! HA! We have all those expensive wells now that keep breaking down, special treatment of the water, special state monitoring and reporting, blah blah blah only increased operating expenses for something LEGAL CUSTOMERS Didn’t NEED.
Discussion as to which increased rate option will directors select to screw customers even more? LOL
Personally, I do not believe anything these Bored of DEFECTOR cheats ever present because they have evidenced no ethical standards or customer concern at all when they hired Pete Kampa as GM/Treasurer in 2014 to reconfigure our water plant for Kampa’s own 20 year old special interests in serving LAFCO PROPERTIES he wrongfully set up as a rogue GM back then. Danny wanted Kampa because he knew Kampa was another professional cheat like him!
The “gravy train” of government grant entrapment.
LDPCSD CUSTOMERS! ANY RATE INCREASE MUST BE APPROVED BY THE CUSTOMERS. THIS IS OUR ONLY OPPORTUNITY TO DEMAND ACCOUNTABILITY!
WE MUST VOTE NO (50% +1 required) ON ANY ATTEMPT TO RAISE OUR RATES UNTIL THE BOARD ANSWERS FOR THEIR SEVERAL YEARS OF CUSTOMER BETRAYAL THAT HAS CREATED THE CURRENT SITUATION.
What guarantee they won’t the the same thing again?
Of course, if they run elections like their brothers and sisters on the national level, any election will be fraudulent as well.
NO ON ANY PROP 218 TO RAISE RATES! IF NOT, YOU WILL HAVE NO ONE TO BLAME BUT YOURSELF FOR WHAT IS SURELY COMING IN THE FUTURE. MORE BETRAYAL AND HIGHER COSTS FOR LESS SERVICE!
False information by Kampa et al to get special treatment in the past?
GM said some authorities say yes LDPCSD is, some say no.
LEW says we are certainly disadvantaged when unethical liars are at the helm of the district’s future course!
COMMON SENSE WOULD DICTATE A BOD WOULD NOT INTENTIONALLY VIOLATE CALIFORNIA STATE WATER LAW RIGHT? THEN WHY DID THEY?
PETE KAMPA AND HIS UNETHICAL BOARD HAS FLOODED THE STATE’S INFORMATION STREAM WITH MUCH FALSE-INCORRECT DATA WHICH THEY HAVE USED FOR THEIR OWN PURPOSES – NOT THE PURPOSES OF THE LEGAL CUSTOMER!
District sends Prop 218 out to customers, 45 days of notification, public hearing (consultants assist), different ways and degrees to which consultants assist the board and GM in helping to convince customers to approve increase.
Size of district, where district is financially. Unknown about this area, where they are (down south) CIP level adjustments, raised rates more substantially, some clients they need higher rate increases because of no rate increases in some time. DANNY JOHNSON says: LIKE US! That miserable cheat. Lied about that FAKE DIGITAL MAP OF KAMPA’S FOR YEARS WHILE USING PUBLIC FUNDS FOR SPECIAL INTERESTS. BUT NO MENTION OF HOW THEY USED OUR FIRST ROUND OF GOVERNMENT GRANT MONEY FOR SPECIAL INTEREST DEVELOPMENT OF A GROUNDWATER SUBSTITUTION PROGRAM FOR DEVELOPMENTS OUTSIDE THE POU WHICH KAMPA ASSISTED IN SETTING UP 20 YEARS AGO BEFORE CAUGHT!
Oh my gosh! We now need more money in 2020 (can’t get those big juicy grants without raising costs on customers?) but refuse to admit what we’ve done in the past – (district misrepresentation by Kampa in applying and appropriating those grants) . As a number of people have said recently in regards to the fraud of a presidential election, speaking for myself to the BORED OF DEFECTORS:
Fuck you! You lied for several years and when busted by the state have NEVER ACKNOWLEDGED OR ACCEPTED YOUR RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE DAMAGE DONE TO THIS DISTRICT AND THE CUSTOMERS. Yes, go fuck yourselves you miserable cheats! Cover yourselves in any trappings you wish so others can’t identify you for what you are – cheats.
Danny wants to know from the consultants: how we “slip in yearly CIP (capital improvement plan) adjustments” AKA RATE INCREASES EVERY YEAR. Oh dear, sounds delightful doesn’t it?
Consultants: Be diligent, make yearly adjustments, stay on top of it…. still have to do a PROP 218 for any rate increase. REFER TO ABOVE! CUSTOMERS ONLY CHANCE TO EFFECTIVELY FIGHT BACK AGAINST THIS HI-JACKING OF OUR LOCAL DISTRICT!
Disadvantaged communities determined by mapping….when Pete Kampa applied we were accepted and were qualified for programs, now we’re not according to GM Patrick McGowan. He didn’t understand why. Couldn’t figure it out. Pssst! Perhaps it was because of the way PETER KAMPA misrepresented this entire district to state and federal grantors to qualify for them so he could blow the money on developing groundwater wells for his hidden 900ac proposed subdivision across from the LDPCSD plant that has apparently been kept from the public and elected directors on the board for over two decades – in addition to many others he set up though LAFCO ANNEXATIONS in the mid 1990s. Kampa is an extremely dishonest individual and was only returned to the LDPCSD to finish what he started in 1994. Maybe that’s the only difference in the current disadvantaged designation confusion? That the last lying cheat for a GM/Treasurer (KAMPA) is gone?
LDPCSD community median income showed $46,000 and change, which is under the qualification, but not shown on the map. Ross said those in Mariposa would qualify but not Tuolumne because of the rich people there.
Next step….net revenue increase plan works best for the Board of Directors. Exactly correct…what is best for them! Not the customers.
Send out PROP218 notice…probably, mailed to customers, 45 days, hold public hearing, community meetings if wanted during Prop 218 for questions and comments, or district could handle it themselves, adopt rates if NO MAJORITY PROTEST…..WHICH IS EXACTLY WHAT CUSTOMERS NEED TO DO! PROTEST ANY RATE INCREASE UNTIL LEGITIMATE QUESTIONS ANSWERED!
(yes, I went back too far on the CD when I started again….oh well. more expressive yeah? lol)
Rates for a five year plan. Rate study every 3-5 years to raise more. Do you have a digital program for the LDPCSD WEBSITE? OH SURE! We could get that……YET WE STILL CAN’T GET AUDIO and/or VIDEO of our meetings? LOL
ROSS: How could we have meetings with people about the PROP 218 during the COVID-19 policies…socially distanced chairs, etc. People aren’t working, why do this to them now? Wait for things to settle down a bit. People are trying to get subsidies from the government just to live. Do it then. President Danny says don’t worry, gym is large, multiple days of presentation, Danny says it was bizzare to worry about that now…….Danny Johnson says demographics show most are retired so their income is stable and they could therefore afford substantial increases in their water bill (YEAH YOU FUTHER MUCKER? – MINE IS A STABLE FIXED INCOME ALSO WITHOUT MUCH WIGGLE ROOM YOU ELITIST LEFTIST ANTI-AMERICAN FUCKTARD! (boy that felt good – think I’ve been holding that in since 2014! lol) I sure understand how Dr. Dan must have his cushy retirement … doing just what he’s done and is doing since on the board – selling out the pubic for his own specials interests.
Expects the retired in the community to pay for his misrepresentations and betrayal of this public agency? Psst……Danny Johnson! You are a lowlife scumbag and if there were ever a true accounting for the wrongs done to victimized citizens, people like you might consider moving to one of your imaginary perfect leftist societies. Since some homes are rented, those owners can afford a big water rate/fee increase? Danny MARXIST JOHNSON explains why the “rich” must pay more? Vacation homes? They must also be rich, so they can afford it! Danny says they should ask all these “RICH” people what think their property would be worth without water?
Ohhhhoooooo, right to the threats huh Danny BOy? Give the district more money or property and home owners might not have water – loose a lot more money? Wow. Danny is sounding more like a Socialist Dictator every minute. Works both ways of course. Patriots might believe there’s all sorts of “ifs” to consider also.
Imagine the ones that could finish the incomplete sentence:
“Wonder what a piece of shit like Danny Johnson would be worth without a…….?”
(guess I’ve been repressing a lot of anger huh? lol)
Danny is suddenly worried about “leaks” and not “theft of water” or his past support for violating the water license which this district relies on for our primary source of water?
Perhaps zoom meetings in the future. Gym will be fine but many people don’t want to come to meetings due to COVID-19 so district might not have to worry about the public showing up anyway?
Consultants “inflating” our normal budget every year for what BOD/GM/TREASURER want to do – naturally without any accountability to the customers who will only continue to pay more and more, for less and less.
Ross: if you have this meeting, during the highest rates of pandemic, state shut down, no one comes to the meeting? How does that work? Do yo do it again, or is that it? You must sell it to the customers. If 50% plus one PROTESTS IN WRITING – the rate increase fails! Most work already done and could be used again on another PROP218? If customers want to participate they can do it by ZOOM?
Gosh, how was the last remaining customer treated earlier because he had criticism for how the GM/Board of Directors have been running this district. NOT EVEN ALLOWED TO SPEAK AT A LOCAL GOVERNMENT CSD MEETING! Danny Johnson shows his true SOCIALIST LEFT colors. Unless you agree with their HI-JACKING OF OUR SPECIAL DISTRICT – unless you support their special interest goal domination of the district, you are not allowed your right to speak at a Johnson private meeting? What an arrogant misguided ignorant piece of shit Danny Johnson is, wow. (Ahhhhh, feels so good.)
A lot of people won’t pay attention and when they hear we want to raise everything 10% they will vote no across the board. GM/Treasurer says complaints will come after the rate increase as well. GM wants to get the 45 days started soon, ….. Hankemier says the vaccine might make everything easier. GM says they won’t hear anything until the customers get upset. (SHIT THEY SHOULD ALREADY BE UPSET AND WRITING A SHORT PROTEST READY TO SEND!)
Time, date, place of Prop 218 meeting (normal date) if someone wants to protest they must write it in……OH BOY! Need to buy some more paper and ink! lol
Written protest. Example: 100 customers, if 51 PROTEST NO! = NO INCREASE!
If 1,400 customers – 701 must write a protest. Why not pre-printed protests ready to sign?
CUSTOMERS MUST HEAR THAT THEY MUST WRITE A PROTEST FOR IT TO COUNT
DOESN’T COUNT UNLESS WRITTEN!!!
Consultants say they have never had a successful protest before? GREAT! HERE’S OUR CHANCE TO SHOW THEM LAKE DON PEDRO IS INDEED NOT SAN DIEGO, LA, SACRAMENTO, SAN JOSE, whatever!
NO ON PROP 218 IN WRITING!
Suggest district send out more propaganda to customers (wrongly believed the BOD knows their customers better than consultants? lol)
Danny Johnson says the board should explain…..we haven’t touched your pockets in five years and it’s over due for the projects we need to complete???? lol
More like…..the board should explain what they did when falsifying documents to qualify for government grants and misusing that money to reconfigure our surface water treatment plant for groundwater substitution to properties outside the Place of Use for Merced River Water! Why have they never addressed the Violation of Water Rights in a public meeting, and what they actually did to create those violations they repeatedly claimed would all be understood when the FINAL MAP WAS CREATED BY PETER KAMPA! lol
A FAKE DIGITAL MAP THAT THEY ATTEMPTED TO REDRAW THE PLACE OF USE FOR MERCED RIVER WATER (GEE EVEN THE MERCED IRRIGATION DISTRICT STOOD BACK WHILE KAMPA WAS ASSIGNING NEW BOUNDARIES TO THEIR WATER LICENSE? WHY? Hell, IT ASSISTED THE MID TOO!) ALSO WITH ASSISTANCE WITHIN THE STATE WATER BOARD DIVISION OF WATER RIGHTS THEY WERE GOING TO REPLACE THE AUTHENTIC HARD COPY WITH ONE OF KAMPA’S PIECE OF SHIT FAKE DIGITAL TO EXPAND WATER SERVICE EVEN FURTHER OUTSIDE THE POU THAN IT ALREADY IS…ANYTIME THERE WAS A QUESTION ABOUT PLACE OF USE THE CROOKS WORKING WITH KAMPA AT THE STATE WATER BOARD WOULD ONLY REFER TO THE FAKE DIGITAL MAP! THAT IS CALLED A CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY TO VIOLATE APPLICABLE LAW. WHO DO YOU THINK ENDS UP PAYING FOR ALL THAT FALSE INFORMATION AND WASTED TIME – MONEY AND RESOURCES? TAXPAYERS! Haven’t touched our pockets in five years? Tar and feathers in the old days for such deceitful lying arrogant pricks like that! (ah yes, much better…..)
Johnson – we know people will go crazy but we can’t react to it and just do what’s best for the district? OK Danny-Boy, why not go home and self-eliminate maybe?
How do we educate customers to approve this? LOL You scumbag.
Syndie wanted to refresh her memory about what happened last time.
Just metered customers can vote. Can availability customers vote? NO, just metered consumers. What if property owner could not be located? What….rentals maybe, send to most recent address on file with the county.
Legal counsel will review adequate notice. Five lots, five votes or notices to protest.
Johnson can we discuss our thoughts on voting on the plan to increase? Yes, it’s on the agenda. Gives public an opportunity to be at meeting. Why, wouldn’t even listen to Wes Barton who has done more honest work for this district than all five of those defectors together?
Presentations at the school were never about rate increases. Hacienda? No – out of district. Can be any time…..couple of sessions in one day for a quick opportunity and then done with it? Johnson wants community input? LOL
Saturday meetings didn’t work. COVID19 can’t go anyway.
Voting on it next month? Next discussion after consultants leave.
SAFE TRAVELS! bye!
GM/TREASURER: Clarified some numbers regarding past rate study and implementation. 5 years, 10 years,? whatever. (WES NEVER ALLOWED TO PRESENT HIS PUBLIC COMMENT! BUT JOHNSON WANTS TO HEAR FROM PUBLIC? Jackass.)
5% 7% 8% 10% increase, monthly fixed and/or cost of a unit of water
ROSS: 5% A fixed income every month, whether 0 water or not
Sperry: Option B unit of water goes up/ can’t hear
Dan: ? can’t hear, what do you think was said?
Two directors for the 7% and one for a 5% – GM says, yeah but remember never have the consultants had a successful protest to stop the raise LET’S MAKE LDPCSD THE FIRST ONE FOR THEM! lol
Johnson reiterates Kampa’s style: talking points and sticking together.
BACK TO THE AGENDA
GM REPORT p 3-7: Intake update, waiting on the pump, tested the extension cords, excavator is down there casing has been pulled, along with inoperable pump, waiting for a test until January, equipment is there and ready, waiting for a positive test and work will start. Broken intake basket repaired with a band. 22″ concrete line – not pressured line, but can suck in debris through holes due to vacuum when pump kicks in…..
1,000gpm put out 250pgm…complained until another contractor made adjustments now works properly. $300+ a day for fuel. Monitoring wells……once demand reached wells are shut down.
One of the newer wells is down again? See what Kampa brought us?
Still covering for the outside place of use water going outside the permitted subdivision which must be replaced with groundwater! OTHERWISE ANOTHER LICENSE VIOLATION!
Water still being pumped and going back out to the lake!.
Lake lowest level at this time of year.
BARGE: Picked up 115 HP outboard motor for the barge Fresno. Wanted to work on the pitch of the propeller? Don Pedro Pump up recently and performed work our guys were going to do for $1,000. Martech no longer working for district. Barge maybe a week or two but has heard that since September. Using loaner barge and Twin Lakes wants their barge back. Wonder how much money has been actually spent on this barge project that has changed drastically since Kampa took us on that financial boondoggle!
Generator grant, spent $7,000 on environmental, every one denied. Came back this year, but offering less money, $300,000. Got application in w/o haveing another environment done. Looks good this year, last year natural disasters took the funds.
Once installed we could pump water during power shutdowns. (duh)
Transmission mains…..blew up, 150 gal a minute. Leading from intake in the boatyard area. 18″ raw water line….under boatyard drainage basin
Sinclair Engineering….fixed water leak on his place some time ago…contacted him, 22′ down found the leak did professional job repairing. Sinclair Engineering Contractors.
Another transmission leak….last Thursday, we fix correctly also. Shut down and welded in piece.
District tank cleaning in December. Filters inspected every other year. Scuba divers clean and vacuum tanks, use epoxy mix added to water, repairing while full. December 7th. Underwater cleaning of tanks on Pearl Harbor Day. Hum.
Bought tanks to transfer diesel fuel with a pump for the barge. (haul out with boat – borrowing MID’s/Twin Lakes Barge and boat.) MID helping us out big time, guess our GM is helping MID too with keeping KAMPA’s FAKE DIGITAL MAP DEVELOPMENT WITH MID FILES A SECRET! Cozy relationship.
Why else would the LDPCSD GM/TREASURER REFUSE TO DIVULGE THE MID (Merced Irrigation District) shape file map PETER KAMPA used to hi-jack our SURFACE WATER TREATMENT PLANT INTO A GROUNDWATER SUBSTITUTION FACILITY FOR LAFCO ANNEXATIONS HE SET UP 20 YEARS EARLIER? Kampa and MID working together apparently.
IF THIS GROUP OF TRAITORS PURSUED A LEGAL METHOD TO SUPPLY SUCH WATER OUTSIDE THE PLACE OF USE OF THE LICENSE YEARS AGO (INSTEAD OF CHEATING AND VIOLATING LAW) IT WOULD NOT BE AN ISSUE NOW. THOSE PROPERTIES WOULD BE PAYING FOR WHAT THEY USE AS IT SHOULD BE.
CONSULTANTS AND LDPCSD MANAGEMENT ARE
BETTING CUSTOMERS WILL NOT PROTEST THIS
CONTINUING CORRUPTION UNTIL AFTER BEING
APPROVED WHEN IT WILL BE TOO LATE!
The disinformation will only increase as to why they need more money, instead of the illegal and unethical activities that brought us to the exact point! WITH A LACK OF ACCOUNTABILITY BY THE BOARD THE SAME CHEATING WILL CONTINUE!
GROUNDWATER WELL STILL SUCKING AIR? OVER PUMPING? LOOK WHAT KAMPA LEFT US!
ALL LYING F)#KING CHEATS WHO ONLY NEED MORE OF OUR MONEY TO CONCEAL THEIR TREACHERY EVEN FURTHER.
WHY IS THE 1993 MERCED IRRIGATION DISTRICT SHAPE FILE MAP KAMPA USED TO DEFRAUD OUR LDPCSD BEING CONCEALED FROM THE PUBLIC BY THE BOARD’S APPARENT MERCED IRRIGATION DISTRICT FRIENDLY GM/TREASURER?
IF MID NOT INVOLVED, why not just furnish the map and say “KAMPA DID IT WITH OUR MID MAP, BUT MID WAS NOT WORKING WITH KAMPA”?
The board knew this was not an area from massive groundwater pumping and distribution but here we are as MANDATORY CUSTOMERS paying for their deceit month, after month, after month. We have been sold out by dishonest special interests only pretending to represent the customers.
CALPERS asking for a health insurance audit? 2007 District stopped using CALPERS. They now want to audit the district? Sounds interesting yeah? Response by district was not accepted the frist time. Apparently CALPERS made a mistake, yet our paperwork was not proper either. (HEY WAIT A SECOND….remember? KAMPA was messing around with that stuff….?)
Have them for retirement but not health care. Need to pull records as to prior employees.
Negotiated lessor cost for water deliveries that experienced difficulties.
14% water loss? Sorry, don’t believe it when presented by people who can manipulate numbers to their benefit.
Now we can relax because only a 14% water loss is considered average? lol After decades of 30%-50% regular loss? No accounting for the outside Merced Irrigation District transfers? Just learned there were more than LDPCSD had admitted to for many years! CHEATS!
Drought contingency plans to be presented next month.
Presentation by NBS- done. (Rate increases)
New pickup truck – 5b, p 55-57: Need a new service truck. $35,000 set aside in budget but can’t find a truck for that price.
Problems with existing 2003 truck. How many miles a month? GM response, a lot.
This vehicle goes home with the on-call employee. Suggested that the light truck go home with on-call employees and pick up the “heavy truck” at the LDPCSD yard when reporting for work. GM would rather have them go straight to the call from home with the heavier service truck.
How many calls after hours? Minimal. Driving around all day long in the service truck.
Service truck is supposed to be for service calls but is used for everything. Only one truck as tools, the service truck.
Originally, one truck was purchased to be used just for directors/GM to go to meetings and training classes – better cleaner truck. Need for another lighter vehicle for laboratory runs etc. GM wants another service truck. GM says “hands down” this is a priority.
One of our vehicles is in the shop every month. How have they been used in the past? Why were tracking sensors put on the vehicles? Because they were being used for personal trips to places like Modesto, Jamestown, Sonora…..etc. Now it’s time to pay the piper, and who pays? Look in the mirror MANDATORY LDPCSD CUSTOMERS WHO CANNOT EVEN SPEAK DURING A PUBLIC COMMENT PORTION OF A PUBLIC MEETING!
LDPCSD CUSTOMERS: WE MUST WRITE OUR PROTESTS AGAINST ANY RATE INCREASE BY THIS CORRUPT MANAGEMENT UNTIL LEGITIMATE QUESTIONS ARE ANSWERED AS TO HOW WE WERE BROUGHT TO THIS FINANCIAL POSITION WHEN INTENTIONALLY MISDIRECTED BY PETER KAMPA AND HIS YES NODDING – DO NOTHING SPECIAL INTEREST TRAITORS TO EVERY SINGLE LEGAL CUSTOMER SINCE 2014 WHEN KAMPA UNETHICALLY BROUGHT BACK TO FINISH HIS LAFCO ANNEXATION SCAM!
Johnson quibbles over justifications for another truck yet ignores his and his board’s absolute failure to control PETER KAMPA and his ANTI-DISTRICT/LEGAL CUSTOMER MANAGEMENT WHICH DESTROYED OUR SURFACE WATER TREATMENT PLANT AND LEFT US IN A GOVERNMENT GRANT NIGHTMARE OF SURVIVAL.
DANNY JOHNSON QUESTIONING GM/TREASURER OVER A TRUCK YET EVERYTHING SLIPS BY WITHOUT ACCOUNTABILITY?
I almost feel sorry for the GM/TREASURER being challenged and corrected by a dishonest board of directors led by a special interest Board President that has unequivocally betrayed the district and all legal customers!
LDPCSD has all the integrity of the 2020 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION CORRUPTED BY SOCIALIST LEFT DEMOCRATS. YES IT IS THE SAME THING.
GM: Board asking questions just to ask questions? Yes, I agree. They pretend to be doing something to hide what they have not, are not doing: – honestly representing the district and legal customers and NOT THEIR SPECIAL “BEHIND THE SCENE” INTERESTS in serving water OUTSIDE THE LEGAL PLACE OF USE FOR WATER LICENSE 11395!
EMERGENCY BREAK FOR TEMPERS TO COOL? lol
Why does the board think customers no longer attend their ridiculous “closed to public comment” meetings? They refuse to answer legitimate questions! Only focus is to continually conceal the facts as to why this district received a STATE WATER BOARD NOTICE OF VIOLATION for INTENTIONALLY VIOLATING THE WATER RIGHTS UNDER WATER LICENSE 11395! THEY INTENTIONALLY CHEATED. GOT CAUGHT! AND NOW CONCEAL THEIR PAST DISHONESTY WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY WANTING TO RAISE OUR RATES AND FEES BECAUSE OF THEIR FAILURE TO OBEY THE LAW IN THE FIRST PLACE.
Ahhhhh, Danny upset that his use of a truck was not clean and nice enough in the past when he needed it?
FUCK DANNY JOHNSON and his leftist bullshit!
Danny Johnson and his supporters (on and off the board) are all lying pieces of shit and should be run out of this community on a rail if there were still justice in this country – a country which people just like them are also attempting to destroy with their socialist left democratic nonsense crap.
Next item: APPROVAL LETTER TO THE MERCED IRRIGATION DISTRICT?
How fucking nice to thank the ones who worked with Pete Kampa to destroy our surface water treatment plant to create a GROUNDWATER SUBSTITUTION FACILITY to serve water to LAFCO ANNEXATIONS the MID wanted SO THE MERCED IRRIGATION DISTRICT COULD OBTAIN ANY ASSOCIATED WATER RIGHTS WITH THAT PROPERTY!
MID received the water rights (to add to all their others) from the property owner when the property was successfully annexed into the district by LAFCO. That then puts the IMPOSSIBLE DUTY OF PROVIDING WATER TO LAFCO ANNEXATIONS OUTSIDE THE PLACE OF USE OF MID’s OWN FUCKING WATER LICENSE ON THE LDPCSD!
MID WAS ESSENTIALLY SETTING UP ALL THESE VIOLATIONS OF ITS OWN WATER LICENSE AND THE MANDATORY LDPCSD CUSTOMERS OF THE LDP SUBDIVISION HAVE BEEN PAYING MORE FOR THEIR ENTITLED WATER SINCE THIS FRAUD OF A CALIFORNIA SPECIAL DISTRICT WAS FORMED BY LAFCOS IN 1980!
Secretary interrupts new item discussion to clarify the vote on the truck: NEW TRUCK APPROVED 5-0 —- LOL!
Hey Patrick!…..you scared the shit out of those spineless directors with your legitimate complaint as to their questioning your work – they were afraid if you quit…..the focus would return to their complete dishonesty with customers for the last several years! You probably could have obtained two trucks if you only sighed and muttered something like….you know the way you’re treating me right now about ready to…. PRESTO! TWO NEW TRUCKS! lol
Crap. Sure wish you weren’t protecting what appears to be MID collusion with KAMPA and their mutually benefiting past, I like a lot of the work you are doing that has been long over due. Too bad you had to enter such a corrupt district – but your choice and I’m not privy to any of the perks you might be receiving in the background that might make it worth while. Any secret annexation projects like Kampa? Maybe the anticipated rewards will be worth dealing with such liars as Danky Johnson.
Danny likes the letter idea to MID? Oh big surprise! Conspirators will always compliment each other’s work! What choice do they have?
Johnson makes corrections to the “MID thank you” letter …. a team effort. Makes me want to vomit in an envelope and express mail it to them!
COMPUTER TABLETS: (Another KAMPA gift of distraction while he and the board continued to destroy our surface water treatment plant designed to serve the residential subdivision. If outside POU property owners want subdivision water, they should purchase property in the subdivision with CC&Rs and annual assessments!). Director education on how to use the tablet.
Listen to this BORED OF DEFECTORS learning how to operate their KAMPA & KOMPANY TABLETS which were another waste of our public resources……. what a cluster fuck of dishonest incompetent traitors to any concept of the notion of honest public service. They all should be ashamed but that would require a working conscience.
If America is not completely lost in the 2020 election fraud (thanks to other such leftists on the national level) – dishonest local officials like this should be legally held accountable for their years of wrongful activity and betrayal of already victimized legal citizens in Califusion.
Don’t just need instruction on how to operate their KAMPA TABLETS – but education on how to be honest…..(yeah, I know, something they should have learned as children and the law cannot force people to be honest or nice).
Apparently director tablets not set up on district WI-FI. LOL
ITEM: P62, removal/change regular meeting in December – approved. (Concerned about Christmas? lol What do they know about he CHRIST in Christmas?)
Generator grant applications –
Emery Ross to GM – alot of stuff district needs – and a lot of traps in dealing with government grants – some officials can nitpick and make your life miserable.
Hankemeier wanted to change all meetings to 1330hrs – would be more convenient for him. Hell, meetings usually start late anyway…..who cares? Rarely do customers attend – they already know what to expect at such suppressed public meetings. It’s all a fraud. Just going through the motions of legitimacy,.
1619 Closed regular meeting. NO PUBLIC COMMENT – becaue no public members are present! ….just the way dishonest local officials prefer!
1715hrs Reviewed materials for GM Review. REPORT OUT OF CLOSED SESSION. One on one communication with directors in writing to GM will occur before final review.
1716hrs, meeting adjourned.
My best to you and yours, Lew
