Measure Z Fund or General Fund
Drainage Easement leading into Regency Heritage Park from Trailwood Ct.
This drainage easement which was cleaned out once by the City of Wildomar Public Works Department thru its contract with PV Maintenance, Inc., the company that maintains Wildomar’s streets, sidewalks, storm drains, street lights, and once by Inland Empire Landscaping the company the is contracted to maintain Wildomar’s 3 parks.
Regency Heritage Park ends at the block wall.
In the first years expenditures this channel appears to have been billed to Measure Z Funds with a check made out to PV Maintenance for $4,847.88 this amount include the scraping of channel removing trees, muck, weeds and trash along with scraping off the dog park area.
Tract Map clearly shows drainage channel outside of park.
This channel is approximately 190 feet in length of which only 40 feet is on the property of Regency Heritage Park, the balance of 150 feet rightly belongs to CSA 142 but this is only a lighting district with no provision to pay for drainage and cost should come from the general fund. The area that is parkland, the access road from Autumn Oak Pl, has never been cleaned as this would require the removal of storm drain covers.
This is not parkland

While going over the financial reports provided to the public and the commission 3 days prior to the Measure Z Oversight Committee meeting, the agenda packet contains some very creative accounting.
1. The electric bill for Marna O’Brien (mind you none of the bills nor the warrant registers list a meter number) has not only “not increased” over the last 3 months, it had been going up at a rate of $850.00 a quarter or 3 month period when the parks were closed. The total for the sucker went down 45 cents even though the park has been open for the last quarter.
2. The phone bill for Marna O’Brien has also managed to go down 24 cents over the same period after going up a little over $27.00 a month for the 9 previous months.
3. It’s funny there is a payment for the movies that have been rented for summer movie nights but no mention of the rental for the screen, speakers and close captioning equipment the city has written checks for.
4. There is a payment to a paving company, out of Measure Z funds, for work at Marna O’Brien Park after a City of Wildomar Press Release on March 20, 2014 which clearly states that “The activities that the grant will fund include: 1. Pavement failure at Marna O’Brien Park; 2. Playground equipment inspection at the parks;
Speaking of number 2 over the years having had numerous pieces of equipment undergo periodic inspections, the inspecting company has always affixed an inspection sticker stating the name of the company, date of inspection and the name or number of the inspector. No such information is listed on any of the tot lot equipment and no check written by the city can be found in the warrant registers.
Conclusion; we been snookered once again. Like the $12,000 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) for camera’s a Marna O’Brien Park that was approved way back in December of 2009.
Maybe for a movie in the park night they can show the “GDOS Movie” the City of Wildomar paid $2,592.00 dollars for.
Clean up of a failed storm water system owned by both the County of Riverside Flood Control District and the City of Wildomar.
Is this what you voted to pay for when you voted for Measure Z.
