What a difference a year makes, when the MEASURE Z OVERSIGHT AND ADVISORY COMMITTEE ANNUAL REPORT was released on FEBRUARY 6, 2015 it consisted of 69 pages containing the comments on the physical condition of the parks, the views on the status of programs and services as well as the comments and concerns of all 5 committee members. Also included was this line;

In accordance with the reporting requirements of Measure Z, the following are the expenditures by cost center within the Measure Z fund (number 255) as of June 30, 2014.

The above statement was followed by the end-of-year annual expenditure report covering the period July 1, 2013 thru June 30, 2014. This listed the individual expenditures of each park along with the Community Services category. This is one of the requirements of;

Chapter 3.18 SAVE WILDOMAR COMMUNITY PARKS FUNDING MEASURE

Section 3.18.040 Annual Report.

An annual report shall be prepared and filed with the City Council of the City as provided in Sections 50075.1 and 50075.3 of the California Government Code, and shall contain: (A) the amount of funds collected and expended; and (B) the status of the community park and community park facilities, programs and services funded by the tax proceeds raised pursuant to this chapter, including the costs of staff, utilities, materials, contract services and other items related to the repair and maintenance of community parks and community park facilities. (Ord. 71 § 1, 2012)

Also in the report was “INDEPENDENT AUDITORS’ REPORT” of the WILDOMAR MEASURE Z PARK FUND, CITY OF WILDOMAR, CALIFORNIA,

FUND FINANCIAL STATEMENTS FOR THE FISCAL YEAR ENDED JUNE 30, 2014. This is the official independent audit required by passage of Measure Z and described in;

Chapter 3.18 SAVE WILDOMAR COMMUNITY PARKS FUNDING MEASURE Section 3.18.050 Annual audit. The Director of Finance shall cause the City’s independent auditor to perform an annual audit of the expenditure of the proceeds of the tax imposed by this chapter.

This annual audit is performed per California Government Code 50075.3.  The chief fiscal officer of the levying local agency shall file a report with its governing body (city council) no later than January 1 and at least once a year thereafter.

Better late than never, I guess

SPRING AHEAD A YEAR

The city of wildomar is about to approve the minutes from the February 2, 2015 meeting (more than a year has passed since this meeting)

They are also going to review, revise and forward the 48 page entitled  “The 2014-15 Annual Report” to the city council.

In this report are the comments on the physical condition of the parks, the views on the status of programs and services as well as the comments and concerns of 3 committee members. (apparently 2 members could not be bothered, in order to identify the members that filed reports one needs to see the Agenda Packet for the Measure Z Oversight Committee meeting held August 27, 2015 as only 2 reports are dated and identified as to which committee members submitted them)

Missing are the the costs as of June 30, 2015 of staff, utilities, materials, contract services and other items related to the repair and maintenance of community parks and community park facilities required by city of wildomar Municipal Code Chapter 3.18 Section 3.18.040 Annual Report.

Can you identify this park from the location provided in the annual report:

“A peaceful neighborhood park tucked away in Wildomar along Prairie Road and Autumn Oaks Road”

“a granite walking trail”

Looks like concrete not granite

Another mystery for the avid sleuth:

New Neighborhood Park for the residents of Wildomar. The renovation of the existing play area will include an area for both 5-12 year old children as well as tots to take pleasure in.

This is a more telling truth:

Mama O’Brien Park rehabilitation also included picnic shelters and a new (resurfaced) parking lot. (I kid you not, Mama is right up there with Marina O’Brien as found on the map at the city of wildomar parks website http://www.cityofwildomarparks.org/#!marna-obrien-park/c210 . Google Mama O’Brien Park it dates back to the county days in 2006. So much for proof reading.

They jumbling of facts leads one to wonder who the hell is in charge.

Maybe this guy (that’s a gopher harder at work than city staff) who was found at Mama O’Brien Park near a Gazebo
