Undue Influence ???

The following was in the Wildomarrap @ http://wildomarrap.blogspot.com/2018/08/city-council-meeting-august-2018.html
One last note: Wildomar Marketplace will be this Saturday, August 11th, from 9am to 2pm. There was some doubt as to whether or not this was going to happen in Wildomar (something about ordinances) but due to the efforts of city councilmember Bridgette Moore, she was able to keep it in town; nice work.

According to the flyer and facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/WildomarMarketPlace/
This event, until cancelled due to the recent fire, was being held at 34846 Monte Vista Drive (The Corporate Room)

Just what is Wildomar Marketplace: According to an article done by the Wildomar Rap found at http://wildomarrap.blogspot.com/2018/06/wildomar-marketplace.html
It started out as an idea from longtime Wildomar resident Stacy Williams. Initially she wanted to get some of the local moms together that either had small home based businesses, or were crafty but had no place to sell their goods.

A check of the Riverside County Assessor- County Clerk- Recorder’s office @
https://www.asrclkrec.com/Clerk/FictitiousBusinessNames/SearchingtheRegistry.aspx
turns up nothing for Wildomar Marketplace, Wildomar Market Place or Wildomar Market.

Update: Have located the Articles of Incorporation for Wildomar Market Place Event Inc, a General Stock Corporation, authorization to issue 1500 shares of stock
Per the Secretary of State website: A Statement of Information is due within 90 days of registration and then EVERY year beginning five months before and through the end of February.
This corporation was registered on February 20, 2018 and should have filed a Statement of Information no later than May 21, 2018 (It has been 176 days since the registration was accepted by the Secretary of State with no Statement of Information filed)

A check of Registrant’s name shows the Williams, Stacy Ann along with her husband, Williams, Paul Bruno, are the owners of Stacy’s French Cottage
Filing Number: R-201700479 Filing Date: 01/11/2017 Expiration Date: 01/12/2022.

A visit to Stacy’s French Cottage facebook page @https://www.facebook.com/Stacysfrenchcottage/
Shows this business to be promoting the Wildomar Marketplace almost exclusively.

This brings up a questions. If Wildomar Marketplace is not on file with the County of Riverside nor the State of California, does this business really exist?.

Next we looked at the location where this Market is being held, “The Corporate Room” located at 34846 Monte Vista Dr., Wildomar, CA 92595.
Again we visit the Riverside County Assessor- County Clerk- Recorder’s office @
https://www.asrclkrec.com/Clerk/FictitiousBusinessNames/SearchingtheRegistry.aspx
where we find Filing Number: R-201510611 Filing Date: 09/25/2015 Expiration Date: 09/26/2020
Business Name(s): THE CORPORATE ROOM
Registrant(s) Name: Last / Corp Name: NEW LIFE CULINARY CREATIONS LLC

Next stop is back to the Secretary of State Business Search @ https://businesssearch.sos.ca.gov/

This Begs the Question
Why is City of Wildomar Councilwoman Bridgette Moore putting forth so much effort to keep this shadowy group’s event in Wildomar
Please google Shadowy

All of this information is current as of August 13, 2018 at 8:00pm

An email sent to the City of wildomar

An email sent to the City of Wildomar on Monday morning details the condition of our parks as they were on a beautiful Sunday morning. This email was sent to the City Manager, Gary Nordquist, Councilman Ben Benoit, 1st Distric, Councilman Dustin Nigg, 2nd Distrct, Councilman Timothy Walker, 3rd District, Councilwoman Bridgette Moore, 4th District, Councilwoman Marsha Swanson, 5th District.
It was also sent to the members of the Measure Z Oversight Advisory Committee members, Sheila Urlaub, Doug Ames, Scott Rux, Shelley Hitchcock and Steve Regalado. Three of those emails were returned as undeliverable. A look at the City of wildomar parks website shows it has not been updated in at least 9 months.

The following conditions were noted during a walk thru of the parks on Sunday morning March 18, 2018

Windsong Park
The restroom facility was filthy

The gate on the southwest corner was broken

The fence on the northwest corner has been cut allowing access to the Creek Garden area

The electrical box on the west fence, near the Creek Garden is bent and has been for months.

Marna O’Brien Park
Automobiles have been driven on the fields during the evening, park cameras should be used to identify the culprits. This city has on two occasions gotten quotes for gates to secure the parking lot at night, these parking lot gates should be installed.


The restroom plumbing is still taped together, and has been for months, resulting in an unsightly appearance.

The drinking fountain, installed as a scout project, does not work and hasn’t in over a month

The “Freedom Swing” is still locked, even after the city spent $31,000 to re-install it 2 years ago.

Regency Heritage Park
Two swings remain missing, the two that remain still have no safety harnesses. In a city with a total of 7 swings to have 5 out of commission is unconscionable.

The drainage for the tot lot still has not been fixed.

Anchor supports for the chain ladder nearest the ADA ramp are exposed creating a safety hazard.

Basketball hoop still bent, has been since April 2014, nets in disrepair.

BBQ missing, has been since April 2014

New plants in area with broken sprinkler

For this the residents of this town more than $350,000 to maintain our parks in this condition.

Activism Pays Off for Residents of Wildomar

Activism saves residents of wildomar money.

Map of CSA 103 Drainage/Landscape 2017

Starting in the tax year 2009/10 the City of wildomar continued collecting $20.00 annually from 1,076 homes located in the original section of Windsong Valley. (One of the homes belongs to a local blogger with a camera & a drone).
This was the result of the City of wildomar passing Resolution 09-59 on August 26, 2009 by a 5-0 vote.

Resolution 09-59 that established the charges for CSA 103 Drainage/Landscape

Leading up to that Resolution the city paid for a report that was not included in the staff report presented to the City Council members nor the public in the agenda packet.

Resolution 09-35 that authorized the study to determine the fee to be added to the tax bill for the city

Fast forward to 2017 city council meeting held on April 12, 2017 a local activist asked the the city council to include the staff reports generated by LAFCO at the time of annexation into CSA 103 Drainage/Landscape and approved by Resolution of the Riverside County Board of Supervisors when this tax was first approved to be placed on the tax bills of 1,076 property owners. (That number in 2017 had increased to 1,082 property owners.
After that meeting city staff approached the activist and claimed they did everything they could to gather the information necessary to place this tax on the appropriate tax bills of residents. This effort included interviewing past contractors that maintained the landscaping, period. They never produced the Resolution from the Riverside County Board of Supervisors making this tax legal, nor did they include the staff reports detailing what was to be maintained with these funds.

A resolution by the Riverside County Board of Supervisors for CSA 103 Lighting exist and does have a staff report detailing the number of street lights with their lumens and their location.

LAFCO Staff report detailing what CSA 103 Lighting pays for

In the city staff report given on June 14, 2017 Agenda Item 2.2, for the tax year 2017/18 charges CSA 103 Drainage Landscape appears.

While preparing to ask the same questions of city staff about these reports for the 2018/19 property tax year, the activist became aware that this tax was no longer on the tax bill of 1082 residents.

Your welcome residents of wildomar.

No Where Your Nearest Fire Hydrant Is?

Behind that hedge is Fire Hydrant

During 2017 California has seen an unprecedented number of wildfires, over 9,000 fires destroying over 1,250,000 acres burned, and is shaping up to be one of the most financially destructive on record. As a result of that and several news stories about failed infrastructure, something we rarely think about has popped into mind.
http://myvalleynews.com/regional-news/cal-fire-2017-totals-prompt-fire-safety-readiness/

Do you have any idea where your nearest fire hydrant is?
Is it’s location properly marked and is it properly identified and visible?
Is it in good repair and proper working order?
How many Gallons per minute is it rated for?

According to Elsinore Valley Municipal Water District (EVMWD) in response to a Public Records Request:
1. The number of fire hydrants located within the boundaries of the City of Wildomar are 1,779. The total consists of 224 commercial and 1,555 residential fire hydrants

Is that Hydrants location properly marked per Wildomar Municipal Code
Wildomar Municipal Code Title 8 Health and Safety
Chapter 8.28 Fire Code
8.28.020 Amendments to the California Fire Code.
507.5.8 Fire hydrant street marker.

Fire hydrant locations shall be visually indicated in accordance with Riverside County Fire Department Technical Policy 06-11, as may be amended from time to time. Any hydrant marker damaged or removed during the course of street construction or repair shall be immediately replaced by the contractor, developer or person responsible for removal or damage.

http://www.rvcfire.org/stationsAndFunctions/AdminSppt/FireMarshal/Documents/Standards/TP06-011-BlueReflectivePavementMarkers-02022017.pdf

Is the Gallons Per Minute for the Hydrant properly marked?
A document produced by the National Fire Prevention Association known as NFPA 291, says fire hydrants using public water supply systems should be painted chrome yellow, and their tops and caps should indicate the available GPM. Below 500 GPM should be red, 500-999 GPM should be orange, 1000-1499 GPM should be green, and 1500 GPM or more should be blue.
This document also states in Section 4.13
Fire Hydrants should be flow tested every five years to verify capacity and marking of the hydrant
Fire Hydrants should be flushed at least annually to verify operation, address repairs and verify reliability.

EVMWD per an email response to a public records request states that:
3. The inspection cycle of the fire hydrants within the District boundary is done in accordance with our valve maintenance which currently is being done between three and five years.

Do you know when yours was last tested. Is it properly marked.
The Fire Hydrants in the area around city hall are properly marked. All others are suspect.

Outside Council Chambers

As to the question of whether it is in proper working condition who really knows.
The water district which owns these hydrants is not willing to share access to a map showing the location, manufacturer, last testing date of any of its fire hydrants.
As stated in a response to a public records request:
4. A digital map of the location, manufacturer of and date of manufacture of each hydrant, date of inspection and inspection results of the above fire hydrants. – N/A

This despite the fact that they have used ARC/GIS mapping since the late 1990’s as shown in the following article:
http://www.esri.com/news/arcuser/0101/arcpad.html
Fire Hydrant Inventory Made Simple
with ArcPad
By Jim A. Ollerton, GIS Manager, Elsinore Valley Municipal Water District
The Elsinore Valley Municipal Water District (EVMWD) in Southern California will update data on approximately 4,000 fire hydrants using ArcPad, a handheld computer, and a GPS unit. By using custom forms created for ArcPad, data collectors will not only verify the location of the district’s hydrants but will also gather information on the make, condition, and capacity of each hydrant.
EVMWD uses an ArcInfo-based enterprise GIS to manage this system. In 1999, the district’s GIS staff began inputting fire hydrant flow tests into the GIS database and linking the results to features. During this process, staff discovered that many hydrants were not in the GIS database. These hydrants exist in an older part of the distribution system that has poorly kept records.
In addition to the need to simply locate all the hydrants to link the test results, the local fire authorities wanted detailed information about fire hydrants such as the type of hydrant, number of outlets, size of each outlet, and other information. Requests for hydrant information originating from two sources-within EVMWD and from local fire agencies-made the GIS staff decide that it was time for a fire hydrant inventory.

FIRE HYDRANTS AND THEIR CONDITION IN WILDOMAR
While traveling from wildomar city hall to home I came across three fire hydrants that are in serious need of repair. (All are in the Very High Fire Severity Zone) The photos below show the current condition in January 2018 and a Google View taken in May 2015 showing the same condition (2 years, 8 months between dates)

End of Baxter Rd just after turning of Porras Rd.

I have come across numerous others since then.

Gruwell St. at Union St. a block away from the fire station.

Malaga at Mission Trail in Wildomar

Olive at Grape St., Wildomar

Across from the Waba Grill in the Albertson’s Parking Lot, near City Hall

While researching who is responsible it was found to be Elsinore Valley Municipal Water District (EVMWD).

Freedom Swing Unchained, but, Not How It Should Have Been

This is what happens when a good idea goes bad because city officials don’t think it out.

The Freedom Swing was installed, for the second time, at a cost of more than $31,000 more than a year ago. It has not been available for use by the general public because this city was unable to come up with an instructional sign which would allow people to properly use this swing.
In the interim the swing was kept behind a locked gate which the children of this community figured out how to circumvent. (Bend the Latch)


Notice the tilt of the swing because the chain on the bottom left has been broken by people jumping up and down.


You can see where someone has tried to fix it with a piece of wire rendering this device unsafe for the general public.


The opposite side has been stretch almost to the breaking point

In Wildomar Where Anything Goes

In Wildomar anything goes, we currently have a planning commissioner that is delinquent in paying property taxes on 15 of 16 properties owned in Riverside County. Some of these properties have delinquencies dating back to 2007. (Information currently available from the Riverside County Tax Assessors Office without a title report)

THIS PAGE HAS BEEN UPDATED COMPLETELY AS OF TUESDAY JULY 18, 2017. It is now time for the citizens of Rural Wildomar to ask for this persons removal from such an important position

This situation was first discovered while reviewing the parcel tax reports included in the CITY OF WILDOMAR MEASURE Z OVERSIGHT ADVISORY COMMITTEE AGENDA Packet for the May 25, 2017 meeting. Wherein delinquency information current as of February 22, 2016 shows this planning commissioner currently has 6 parcels that were delinquent as of the report date. (This shows that property taxes were not paid as of December 10, 2015).
I have provided the relevant pages as photos showing the properties. All one has to do is look at the who is on the planning commission to figure who is being talked about.

This issue rested in the back of my mind while I looked a little deeper into this situation. Especially after remembering that one of the delinquent properties showed up in a City Council Agenda Packet for a Special Meeting on March 29, 2017 under the Closed Session for which public comments are allowed. This closed session claims the council will Confer (have discussions; exchange opinions) with legal council and conference (a formal meeting for discussion) with real property negotiators.

The property in question showed up on the Measure Z delinquency report as being owned by this planning commissioner.

This was verified by requesting a copy of that person’s Statement of Economic Interest Form 700 (a form required to be filled out by all elected and appointed officials listed in California Government Code Section 87200) of which planning commission is one listed.
Link to pamphlet showing positions required to file Form 700, see page 3
http://www.fppc.ca.gov/content/dam/fppc/NS-Documents/TAD/Form%20700/2016-17/Ref_Pamphlet_2016_2017.pdf


So now you really know who the questionable character is

Something to notice about this form.
The Filed Date is April 20, 2017:
FPPC requires notification by March 1st that this form is to be submitted no later than Monday April 3, 2017 of each year. (This planning commissioner has been in this position since 2010 so he knows the drill) Also have to wonder if a fine was levied as permitted by the FPPC, the fine is $10.00 per day up to $100.00 (This form was 17 days late and as such was subject to the maximum fine of $100.00)
http://www.fppc.ca.gov/content/dam/fppc/NS-Documents/TAD/FilingOfficer/700FO-Folder/Late%20Fine%20Guidelines.pdf

On April 24, 2017 this property was withdrawn from the County of Riverside Auction List, three days before the auction was to open, when the property was redeemed by the owner when they paid the property taxes for Fiscal Year 2007-2008.

Tax records pulled on June 22, 2017 show that the taxes have not been paid for Fiscal Year 2016-17.

It was discovered through further research that this person owns 16 total parcels in Riverside County. After reviewing the tax bills for these properties it was discovered that this was not a new situation for this person as several properties owe back taxes as far back as 2007 and all but one is delinquent for this past tax year.
I will not bore you with a lot tax bills. I will show the ones with prior years taxes due.
One such property is in Wildomar

Upon further inspection this property is incorrectly listed on the Form 700. The address list on the Form 700 is 32381 Christopher Ln, this address does not exist according to the County of Riverside Tax Assessor and Map My County. But a tax bill is sent to the Planning Commissioner P.O Box 1229 Wildomar, Ca 92595 for a parcel with the address of 33891 Christopher Ln, Wildomar, CA.
A complaint will be filed with the FPPC for this error and the wildomar city clerk will also be notified.

Prior Years Taxes are due on this property.

The saga continues with and additional 8 properties with past years taxes due. All of the tax records shown are also currently FY 2016-17 delinquent.

Other than some information about a defunct Domestic Non-Profit Corporation that is currently SUSPENDED by the California Secretary of State and the Franchise Tax Board my job is done. I have provide the evidence that this planning commission who cannot manage his own life should have never been on the Wildomar Planning Commission nor should he continue to be on a planning commission where he is indirectly managing the lives of the almost 36,000 residents of Wildomar.
It is now time for the residents of this RURAL Community to stand up and ask for this persons to be removed from this important position.

Unethical – At What Point?

Ethics is particularly important in public service. As a Planning Commissioner, you have been given significant authority and you are expected to use that authority with integrity. If the Planning Commission is to do its job properly and address the challenges confronting most communities, public trust and confidence is vital. High ethical standards are required to secure and maintain public trust that is essential to the planning process and to good government.

In Texas: Owing delinquent property taxes disqualifies a person from serving on the County Appraisal District (CAD) board of directors.

Few voluntary non-elected appointments have the kind of authority granted a planning commissioner. Fewer still have the ability to affect the future of a community to such a great extent

In doing so a Planning Commissioner needs to be above reproach
(1. such that no criticism can be made; perfect.)

In California maybe things are different as there is a small town where a Planning Commissioner is delinquent on the property taxes for every parcel they own in town and numerous others in the County they live in. The delinquencies also affects a parcel tax which is used to support the town’s few parks which councilmembers fawn over.

When recently brought to the attention of this towns city council members, they were quick to make excuse about why this is happening. The planning commissioner in question has a serious medical issue.

The question then becomes are these delinquencies a recent event due to this medical issue or is there a history of this type of behavior.
The answer is, there is a history. Property tax records show delinquencies on the books dating back to 2007.

This person also has a history of not completing legally required task like properly dissolving a domestic nonprofit corporation, for which this person is listed as the Agent of Service, this corporation has languished for more than two and a half decades and is currently listed as Franchise Tax Board/Secretary of State Suspended on the Secretary of State’s website.

The final question to be asked is should this person with a history of ignoring property tax law and not owning up to other legal responsibilities be allowed to continue as a planning commissioner setting the direction of growth for that city.
