ANOTHER DISINGENUOUS “KAMPAGANDA BITE” AT A NEW WL11395 POU APPLE

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Perhaps Pete Kampa has not actually read the State Water Resources Control Board’s (SWRCB) September 28th, 2017 Notice of Violation for alleged WL11395 Water Right violations?

How could he miss and/or ignore the State’s clear determination of facts relating to the PLACE OF USE for Merced River water per Water License 11395 held by the Merced Irrigation District (MID)?

Why does Kampa continue displaying the June 20th, 1977 MID POU Map on the LDPCSD website as the official MID POU Boundary map when the REVISED JUNE 15th, 1978 IS THE OFFICIAL MAP ON FILE WITH THE SWRCB?

Is he trying to passively communicate with others who might view the website for information as to their outside MIDPOU property interests Kampa has previously promised water for their developments?

Why continue with SUCH OUTRIGHT WATER BOUNDARY MISREPRESENTATIONS ALREADY RESOLVED BY THE SWRCB MULTIPLE TIMES?

Why does Kampa ABSOLUTELY REFUSE TO ACKNOWLEDGE the legitimate June 15th, 1978 MID POU Map which is on file with the SWRCB as the POU for WL11395?

How can Kampa be allowed to continue managing a local public agency like the LDPCSD according to his own SPECIAL INTEREST rules and regulations which clearly contradict what the State of California has already determined, established and documented as the operating law?

Below is the map Kampa still displays on the LDPCSD website – WHICH IS INCORRECT!

 

AND OF COURSE….the above INCORRECT EXPANDED WATER SERVICE MAP also conceals the KAMPA SLUMBERING PROPOSED 900 acre RESIDENTIAL SUBDIVISION ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE LDPCSD OFFICE THAT EVEN SITTING DIRECTORS BACK THEN WERE COMPLETELY UNAWARE—- heck, even MARIPOSA COUNTY LAFCO illustrated that property as SOI (SPHERE OF INFLUENCE) up until only a few months before KAMPA’s UNETHICAL RETURN AND APPOINTMENT AS GM….

…but, but, but……how could that happen with a dedicated and honest employee on the job you might ask?   lol!

That question presumes a dedication and honesty to the lawful functioning of the LDPCSD to the benefit of the intended customers of that former SURFACE WATER TREATMENT PLANT the MR WECs of the subdivision that simply did not exist.

The focus since “DAY ONE” of the LDPCSD (and obviously encouraged and supported by the two district forming county LAFCOs who gained land development revenue without the liability of being required to provide the necessary potable water service in a known drought prone area) was to extend those main pipelines even further beyond the PLACE OF  USE BOUNDARY OF THE SUBDIVISION FOR MERCED RIVER WATER PER WL11395.

Back then KAMPA was forced to keep his private ANNEXATION DEALS concealed from the BOARD OF DIRECTORS yet now, KAMPA has a fully co-operating board of defectors that have taken ABSOLUTELY NO INTEREST WHAT-SO-EVER IN THE LEGAL POU OF WL11395 preferring instead to fund a $35,000 digital mapping project which enabled PETE KAMPA to fabricate his FAKE POU MAP to include his annexed properties from 20 years earlier. 

  • So sad our “YES BOARD” did not have EVEN ONE DIRECTOR OUT OF FIVE willing to stand up to KAMPA and “do the right thing” – they could have stopped this continuing WASTE OF PUBLIC RESOURCES by demanding an authentic WL11395 POU BOUNDARY MAP from the State Water Board or the Merced Irrigation District rather than permitting KAMPA to orchestrate this elaborate fraud built on false, antiquated, and misrepresented information to reconfigure the POU just like KAMPA & KOMPANY reconfigured our SURFACE WATER TREATMENT PLANT INTO A GROUNDWATER SUBSTITUTION FACILITY FOR LAND DEVELOPERS OUTSIDE THE WL11395 POU for MERCED RIVER WATER!

Since Pete Kampa returned to the LDPCSD in October 2014 he has only continued the LAFCO ANNEXATION expansion plans made over twenty years ago with which he was also personally involved.

WHAT SORT OF PEOPLE WOULD SELL RECENTLY DEVELOPED PUBLIC EMERGENCY DROUGHT GROUNDWATER TO THE SPECIAL INTERESTS OF SPECULATIVE REAL ESTATE AND LAND DEVELOPMENT INTERESTS which our LDPCSD has no legal duty or moral obligation to provide water?

?????? $$$$$$ ??????

Here’s a quick update on the most recent PUBLIC INFORMATION REQUEST:

LDPCSD “SPECIAL MEETING” RE POSSIBLY ACCEPTING “LOSER WASTEWATER TREATMENT PLANT” AROUND GOLF COURSE?

Reading Time: 4 minutes

 

LDPCSD SPECIAL MEETING

November 12, 2018 at 1:00 p.m.
This Meeting replaces the November 19, 2018 Regular Board Meeting (PDF below…if this works – CONTROL PAGES BOTTOM LEFT IN DOCUMENT. YOU KNOW, I worry sometimes that I am only a sneeze away from forgetting how to do any of this! lol)

2018-11-12 Special Meeting Agenda Packet

What better time to distract from the clear past COUNTY BETRAYAL and DECEIT already displayed for the <MR WECs> of the LAKE DON PEDRO residential subdivision?

Imagine, MARIPOSA COUNTY LAFCO waits a month after the STATE OF CALIFORNIA declares the Merced River water fully appropriated and being put to maximum beneficial use per the State Constitution to then quietly, and greatly, expand the water service area boundary for its new LAKE DON PEDRO CSD that is clearly far beyond what the California Public Utilities Commission was prepared to approve. In fact, the CPUC went to great lengths in that decision to clearly explain what properties were, and were not, to be provided water by the new LAFCO formed district. The reason for the last 38 years of that missing LAFCO SERVICE AREA MAP? Evidence of the deception?

Yup, in August 1980 LAFCO quietly enlarging the LDPCSD water service area (apparently re-confirmed in Kampa’s recent statement that Unit 7 was part of the Sierra Highlands residential subdivision and therefore, within his “interpretation of the WL11395 POU) only months before receiving the SIERRA HIGHLANDS WATER COMPANY facility and assets transfer approval from the California Public Utility Commission (CPUC) in January 1981, effective February 1981?

The official service area map missing for over 38 years – despite the fact the 11 pages of metes and bounds survey still exist?

Refusal to provide that original area service map to other requesting government entities and individuals through the last almost four decades!

Missing MARIPOSA COUNTY LAFCo (Local Agency Formation Commission) records on their internet page and refusal to reply to multiple FORMAL REQUESTS FOR PUBLIC INFORMATION REGARDING HIGHLY SUSPICIOUS ANNEXATIONS INTO THE LDPCSD?

A SPHERE OF INFLUENCE (SOI) boundary developed by LAFCO based on an in depth detailed report 7 years after LDPCSD formation without a service map (and after the logical ZERO SOI PROPOSED BY THE PLANNING DEPARTMENT) – A DETAILED SOI REPORT THAT DID NOT EVEN  MENTION STATE WATER LICENSE 11395 restrictions on Merced River water use outside the Lake Don Pedro residential subdivision (formerly Sierra Highlands Water Company subdivision)?

When LAFCO was approving many of these annexations please also remember the LDPCSD DID NOT HAVE A SINGLE GROUNDWATER WELL AT THE TIME FOR REPLACEMENT OF THE  MERCED RIVER WATER ILLEGALLY LEAVING THE SUBDIVISION/GOLF COURSE AREA!

In other words, LAFCO was approving annexations into the LDPCSD for development that the district could not possibly legally provide water and all these annexations were based on a  “detailed” and contracted SPHERE OF INFLUENCE STUDY REPORT (resulting in a huge SOI Boundary for properties and their “potential future water service”) that NEVER ONCE MENTIONED

IT WAS ILLEGAL TO PROVIDE MERCED RIVER WATER TO THOSE ANNEXATIONS!

FOLKS, THIS IS NORMALLY CALLED A BIG CLUE!

Please also consider….

A proposed “slumbering 900 acre residential subdivision across the street from the LDPCSD” that was acknowledged twenty years later and only a few months before PETE KAMPA/KAMPA COMMUNITY SOLUTIONS / aka KAMPACS, unethical return and appointment as general manager without even a rudimentary background employment check? (Accomplished through a LAFCO – LDPCSD semi-closed meeting in Mariposa that I was repeatedly told I could not attend which just happened to result in a NEW LDPCSD SERVICE BOUNDARY THAT INCLUDED ONE OF KAMPA’s 20 year old LAFCO ANNEXATIONS REQUIRING an expensive GROUNDWATER SUBSTITUTION PROGRAM TO DEVELOP?

$

Granting Kampa unlimited access to over one million dollars in district funds accumulated due to the successful passage of a proposition 218 to avoid bankruptcy?

That million dollars was used to leverage state and federal grants in order to develop groundwater wells that the government and public were told would only be used for emergency drought purposes, yet was actually used to create a massive “ALTERNATE SOURCE OF WATER” with which to sell to the many LAFCO ANNEXATIONS OUTSIDE THE WATER LICENSE LEGAL PLACE OF USE PETE KAMPA SET UP OVER TWENTY YEARS AGO when starting his infamous water career in California?

Still waiting for the conclusion to the State Water Board investigation and Pete Kampa’s obvious attempted change of the WL11395 Place of Use Boundary (to include the annexations he pushed twenty years ago) for Merced River water with a fabricated incorrect boundary map Kampa  submitted to the State Water Board in defense of his wrongful activities?

(Kampa’s FAKE POU MAP was created with a Board approved $35,000 digital mapping project

while that same board steadfastly refused to simply contact the

State Water Board or  the Merced Irrigation District for an official WL11395 POU map!

How “single minded” and/or negligent is that one aspect to this mess?)

An acquiescent Board of Directors who despite years of requests by the public would not even simply pick up a telephone and request a legitimate POU map from….oops!   repeating myself….lol

Yup, what a perfect time for Kampa and Kompany to schedule a Special Meeting (cancelling the regular meeting with its procedures and routine production of  public information) to discuss another financial deception and betrayal by the county and LDPCSD “remote management”.

 

My best to you and yours, Lew

Especially since you have not been receiving the “best from the county (not even adequate)” – much less their co-operative ” and disingenuous part time manager” Pete Kampa & Kompany.

WE HAVE ENOUGH KAMPA KRAPA ALREADY

WITHOUT THAT

FINANCIAL LOSER

OF A SEWER TREATMENT PLANT!

Consider: LAFCO is not supposed to act arbitrarily or capriciously?  Take a look at the LDPCSD’s 38 years of ridiculous annexations, islands of service, and groundless LAFCO decisions – that quite often do not even adhere to their own operating regulations!  Check out the haphazard sub-par annexation paperwork – if you can get the county to provide the years of evidence still missing from their website!

WHAT ABOUT THE PAST LEACHATE DUMPING PRACTICE?

What about the county’s  dumping of tanker truck loads full  of toxic leachate from the  Mariposa County Landfill into the Don Pedro wastewater facility when their leachate basins overfilled during heavy precipitation?

Is that what caused the premature damage and eventual replacement of wastewater plant equipment?

Will that LEACHATE transport-dumping procedure continue when necessary or was it just a temporary answer to a serious County problem that the Don Pedro facility was used to remedy while in the county’s control?

there is soooooooo much more to this betrayal ……but I have ignored my own work long enough,  later

MARIPOSA “LAFCO TRAINING TO COUNTY BOARD of SUPs” EXTREMELY MISLEADING!!!

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Sorry for the copy quality.  The above page was in a Mariposa County LAFCO TRAINING presentation to the Mariposa Board of Supervisors on September 26th, 2018.   (This LAFCO TRAINING presentation had been continued from the April 18th and June 27th, 2018 meetings.)

Here’s the website:     MARIPOSA COUNTY LAFCO 2018 CALENDAR

ANYWAY, had just started looking over the material as to SPECIAL DISTRICTS (which are supposed to have “limited boundaries” you know) in MARIPOSA COUNTY that were subject to this LAFCO authority when the description of our LAKE DON PEDRO  COMMUNITY SERVICES DISTRICT (LDPCSD) on page 11 jumped out at me….. (so naturally, I will emphasize that information to make it JUMP OUT AT YOU! lol)

 

“LDP Subdivision properties in both

Mariposa and Tuolumne Counties”

That description may be technically correct but it is extremely misleading and far from accurate if the Board of Supervisors (or anyone else for that matter) is truly interested as to why the LDPCSD has been a dysfunctional and corrupt SPECIAL DISTRICT since formed by the LAFCOs of both Mariposa and Tuolumne Counties in August 1980.

(Our district’s’ EXPANDED ANNEXED AREAS of water service beyond the subdivision is precisely WHY THE MANDATORY CUSTOMERS OF THE LDP SUBDIVISION HAVE BEEN PAYING TOO MUCH FOR THEIR WATER since day one!)   The above description was simply how the LAKE DON PEDRO CSD was sold to the public and other government entities, however, the actual district that was established was — (years before formation) — FAR OUTSIDE THE WATER APPROVED LDP SUBDIVISION.

So a more accurate description of this unorganized, sprawling, and unethically managed SPECIAL DISTRICT under MARIPOSA LAFCOs authority might more accurately be described as:

“The LDP Subdivision properties in both Mariposa and Tuolumne Counties for which a surface water treatment plant was designed and constructed to serve Merced River per State Water License 11395 to that PLACE OF  USE residential subdivision, PLUS, thousands of additional acres LAFCOs later ANNEXED INTO THEIR MUTUALLY FORMED SPECIAL DISTRICT OUTSIDE THE APPROVED SUBDIVISION which require an extremely expensive groundwater substitution program subsidized by the mandatory property owners of the LDP subdivision.”

Or something like that, lol.

 

My best to you and yours, Lew

NOT SO QUICKIE #4 – JUMPS TO #5: STANDBY vs AVAILABILITY FEES OCT152018

Reading Time: 2 minutes

OK, will the real QUICKIE #4 please stand up?   lol   OK, here we go again.

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN STANDBY and AVAILABILITY FEE?

STANDBY FEE was the original term  used for those subdivision properties where water service had not been connected yet, but was “standing by” waiting for the property owner to request service at which time it would be provided.  The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) made this point quite clear when it approved the transfer of Sierra Highlands Water Company facility and assets to the new LDPCSD.   ANY SUBDIVISION PROPERTY DOCUMENTED IN THAT TRANSFER COULD RECEIVE WATER SERVICE AT ANY TIME UPON DEMAND!

The “availability fee” was added in the 1990’s to cover all the COUNTY LAFCO ANNEXATIONS that DID NOT HAVE A RIGHT TO THE MERCED RIVER WATER UNDER WL11395 – they could only receive extremely expensive GROUNDWATER SUBSTITUTION– therefore, their water service was contingent upon an “ALTERNATE SOURCE WATER” being available for their outside WL11395 Place of Use properties.

Pete Kampa was returned in 2014 to create that massive “ALTERNATE SOURCE OF WATER” aka expensive groundwater substitution, with groundwater wells developed with public funds and resources for the purpose of supplying water to the LAFCO ANNEXATIONS Kampa setup in the 1990s.   (This was a violation of the intent of grant funds that were supposed to be used only for existing customers to insure they would not run out of water during the state wide emergency drought.)

Kampa used this state wide emergency drought to conceal what he, his board, and others, were actually doing – MISAPPROPRIATING  THOSE GRANT FUNDS TO CREATE AN ALTERNATE SOURCE WATER in order to remedy the many water right violations committed through service of Merced River water outside the legal Place of Use of water license 11395 that the LDPCSD has used since formation in August 1980.

PLACE #5 here, as #4,  dumb ass!

 

My best to you and yours, Lew

QUICKIE #3: FURTHER GIFTS OF PUBLIC WATER TO STOP? OCT152018

Reading Time: 1

NOTE:

I should know better by now…..I can not race through these meeting reports.  Yesterday I was arranging and “producing” clips while simultaneously uploading a clip to YOUTUBE (that’s what really takes the time).  So while uploading to YOUTUBE I was working on other clips getting them ready for uploading once the  current upload finished.  (make sense?)  Anyway, ended up accidentally producing and uploading Part 3 twice!  Just noticed it this morning.  DARN IT!

Now backtracking and trying to locate a new start position. Yup, too old and tired for this stuff.

Anyway, I can not change those meeting presentations already uploaded to YOUTUBE and displayed – so ignore the part identifier on the clip.  (it will jump from 2 to 4 because I had to remove the incorrect #3 and change #4 to #3).   Geez. Starting to sound like a typical  Pete Kampa presentation!   LOL!   Certainly wasted another weekend again.  Oh well, I still believe the time is well spent because I cannot simply sit back and watch the continuing misrepresentation of what KAMPA & KOMPANY have been doing for years – intentional acts – not accidents or misunderstandings.

OK – back to the clean up!

************

Seems everyone gets some “special benefit” water service from the LDPCSD except for the MR WECs who is saddled with, and primarily pays, the escalating bills because they are property owners within the LAKE DON PEDRO OWNERS ASSOCIATION subdivision!  Where is the LDPOA legal assistance to defend and protect the water rights of every property within the subdivision that is dependent upon the LDPCSD for their ENTITLED MERCED RIVER WATER SERVICE?

Yup, ANYTHING VALUABLE REQUIRES PROTECTION- and quality Merced River water in a drought prone foothill area is certainly valuable.

My best to you and yours, Lew

QUICKIE #2 10152018 LDPCSD PART2

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Perhaps this is a waste of time in some respects, I mean presenting what Kampa and his board are actually discussing and approving during these meetings, but then again there has been some positive movement towards illuminating on the state level what these local “leaders” and their “remote GM/Treasurer” have been doing for years.   Such acknowledgement has been an extremely difficult proposition and likely in many respects partially due to the powerful influence of the CSDA (California Special District Association) and Pete Kampa’s 20 year relationship as a board director with that massive not for profit lobbying organization.

What if every CSDA member organization agreed it was an acceptable approach to bend the rules of established legal procedures if they believed it was in service to the public good as current California Attorney General Xavier Becerra apparently advocates?

Is that what CALIFORNIA CAD SOLUTIONS did when PETE KAMPA contracted with them to create the “FINAL ANSWER TO THE LDPCSD WL11395 Place of Use Map question”?

You know, intentionally creating an inaccurate official government document for a local public agency that will use it in an official California State Water Board investigation as DEFENSE EVIDENCE for intentional Water Right Violations spanning decades?

What could possibly encourage an otherwise (presumed) legitimate company to do such a thing?

CSDA member organizations get a CSDA Discount on such professional mapping work.

As a CSDA business member do they perceive some sort of CSDA “stamp” or “wink and nod of approval” because the map request is being made by a 20 year CSDA board director who assures all information furnished is accurate and legitimate?

(Recall NO DISTRICT FINGERPRINTS were to be on this map?  Fingerprints?  Heck, every imaginable form of KAMPA IDENTIFIABLE DNA is infused in this RIDICULOUS FAKE MAP!   lol)

What about that company’s business reputation for integrity in producing quality documents?

Or, is there some underground demand for FAKE GOVERNMENT DISTRICT BOUNDARY MAPS AND ILLUSTRATIONS?

Or is this only one specific KAMPA & KOMPANY  exclusive family benefit?   You know, only working with those Kampa trusted and approved  individuals, companies, corporations, contractors, consultants, engineers, etc, with a track record of successfully getting things accomplished which were previously considered impossible?

Can’t you imagine a commercial for such a sideline business…..?????    lol   <fog starts obstructing vision and dream like music increases in volume……then – an upbeat personality spins the con…….>

“Have winning multi-million dollar projects held up in the glacial grind of planning, permitting and LAFCO regulations all because of a lack of required designated easements that only exist in eyeliner pencil on a Sonora bar napkin?

RELAX

and permit

KAMPA-GANDA COMMUNITY COLLUSIONS

to transform that napkin of smudged dimensions into a financially rewarding string of successfully completed projects ALL WITH THE ADDED BENEFIT  of a complimentary CSDA discount with any purchase of one of our fine FAKE MAPS!”

HOW ABOUT A FEW QUICKIES?

Reading Time: 4 minutes

HELLO!  Let’s see, 1920hrs, Saturday, November 3rd, 2018…. been working on a report of the last meeting [October 15th, 2018 – Nope.  No longer attend meetings as the lies and deceit are just too much.  At home I can turn the audio off and do something else when I feel that pressure rising.]

Anyway, …here are the particulars leading up to this posting now….

Friday, November 2, 2018:  Received a portion of my October 18th, 2018 request for public information (meeting audio CD) when I drove to the LDPCSD office after a “transfer station” (waste disposal) trip.   Here is that request:

From: Lew Richardson

Sent: Thursday, October 18, 2018 10:50 AM
To: Syndie Marchesiello <syndie@ldpcsd.org

Subject: Oct 15 2018 Meeting recording

 

Good morning Syndie, would appreciate a copy of this month’s LDPCSD Monthly Board meeting recording.  Please advise when ready and I will make payment and pickup.  Also, any word on the LDPCSD Consumer Confidence Reports previously requested for prior years? 

 

Also as another public information request,   1) I would appreciate copies of all correspondence GM Kampa has provided the SWRCB in response to their request for clarification of the POU discrepancies as outlined in the SWRCB Aaron Feldhaus email to Pete Kampa on August 30, 2018. 

 

GM Kampa stated in this month’s agenda packet that certain information had been included for discussion regarding the POU boundary issue, however, the Mariposa County LAFCO Resolution establishing the LDPCSD and the 1978 POU Map with Sierra Highlands boundaries were not included in the packet as stated on page 35.  

 

2) I would therefore appreciate a copy of “The Resolution of the Mariposa County Local Agency Formation Commission establishing the LDPCSD, using the Sierra Highlands Water Company boundaries” as stated by GM Pete Kampa on page 36, item 1 of the October 15, 2018 LDPCSD Meeting agenda packet. 

 

3) If already clearly identified during the meeting “detailed presentation of the information provided in this packet” as management stated it would on page 36, you can disregard the following request.  (Very curious though, how can a “detailed presentation” of information provided in the packet be made at the meeting if the information was not provided in the packet?)

Location and identification of the “original district maps” District staff, mapping consultant and legal counsel have reviewed regarding the POU “discrepancy” for the previously proposed Unit 7 area for the Sierra Highlands Water Company subdivision which was abandoned at owners request (never included in the subdivision) and was approved by all parties to revert to open acreage but which is now proposed for another adjacent residential subdivision with portions clearly outside the WL11395 POU as previously determined by MID officials and LDPCSD legal counsel.  (Please identify relevant maps by title, purpose, date, revision date/number, creator, scale, etc.)  

 

4) A copy of the map prepared from the 11 page metes and bounds survey GM Kampa included in the LDPCSD October 15, 2018 agenda packet stating it defined the original LDPCSD boundaries yet was only illustrated in the agenda packet through a few county assessor parcel maps with subsequent Kampa notations referencing other maps of questionable accuracy produced with GM Kampa direction and assistance.  The packet information only referenced one small area of POU controversy and a complete depiction of what was originally approved (but only documented in surveyor’s language most people cannot understand without the corresponding map which is required under CALAFCO GUIDELINES that Pete Kampa coincidentally assisted in creating in 2016) might be of great assistance in revealing other areas that are also outside the WL11395 POU for Merced River water service.

 

 

Thank you, Lew Richardson

 

???????????????????

I stopped by the office on Friday October 19th, 2018 to check on that outstanding prior request for information which included the issue of past Consumer Confidence Reports regarding water quality that appear to be missing from LDPCSD records, or at least, not published for public review.   I was advised that Syndie was on vacation and to check with her on Monday.  Then early Monday morning October 29th, I received this:

Out of the Office Reply

Syndie Marchesiello

10/29/2018 06:58

Hello,

Thank you for your email. I am out of the office from October 17th – October 26th. If you need immediate attention please call (209) 852-2331 Ext 0 and someone can help you.

 

Regards,

Syndie Marchesiello

Office Manager / Board Secretary

 

??????

Gosh darn it, missed by only a day getting my request in before Syndie took vacation on the 17th.  Oh well, stuff happens right?  But that “out of office” email notification was rather weird yeah?  I mean, advising someone “after the fact” that they wouldn’t be in the office?  Thought such messages were supposed to be auto-sent upon receipt of an incoming email?  ANYWAY, so today is Friday, November 2nd, 2018 and I had just started to listen to the monthly board meeting recording for October 15th, when I see an email notification from Syndie:

Lew,

Your public records request has been received and in the process of being reviewed and processed. You will be notified upon completion. Have a great day.

 

Regards,

Syndie Marchesiello

Office Manager / Board Secretary

??????

Gosh darn it, missed by only a day getting my request in before Syndie took vacation on the 17th.  Oh well, stuff happens right?  But that “out of office” email notification was rather weird yeah?  I mean, advising someone “after the fact” that they wouldn’t be in the office?

 

ANYWAY, so today is Friday, November 2nd, 2018 and I am reviewing the monthly board meeting for October 15th, 2018 —yeah, …….like I repeat myself……lol

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> 

MEETING START

Lake Don Pedro Community Services District (LDPCSD) Vice President Dan Hankemeier, without fanfare, quickly opened the monthly board meeting.   No customary opening pleasantries such as a welcome, or official introduction for the business record by mentioning little tidbits like the name of the public agency, date, time, purpose of meeting, etc..

Let’s continue shall we?  This will almost be like radio except for my constant blah, blah, blah yeah?  lol

My best to you and yours, Lew
