Once again Wildomar will cancel its “Measure Z Oversight Meeting”. This time around its reportedly because of a lack of a quorum.
Never mind that this meeting would normally have occurred in October but was pushed out due to city officials not having enough time to gather the necessary information.
This current group of citizens manning the committee apparently do not consider this committee to be of any importance as this date has been know to them for several months.
Of this group two individuals could not even be bothered to turn in their annual audit despite the city giving them a form that detailed what to look for, all they need to do was fill it in.
While looking over the current batch of numbers city officials should consider themselves fortunate this cancellation occurred as many important figures generated are pure garbage.
An example are the figures given for water usage.
Water Bill at Marna O’Brien Park for the period 7/1/15 – 9/30/15 shown as $4,533.00
But when one looks at what the city has already paid one finds an enormous discrepancy.

Electricity appears to be very much the same, under reported by a huge amount. Unfortunately the city continues to hide the actual electric bill in the vouchers by calling it city electricity (this lumps all the parks together). Every other electric bill for CSA’s, Cemetery, Ball Field, specific addresses are listed separate.
Electric cost are so far off its laughable. Last years usage for the two summer months exceeded $4,000 each month and now staff is telling this committee that cost for the whole quarter, three months is $2,834.00. This is less than three weeks worth of usage for any summer month of last year, the inaugural year when little organized activity occurred.
Just the customer charge (cost of having a meter) for Regency Heritage Park with no electric usage exceeds the $49.00 listed. At $0.836 per day X 92 days (7/1/15 – 9/30/15) comes to $76.91.
In the coming days I will be (to the chagrin of some) placing a public records request, by meter number, for each of the parks to verify the true number.
