DOES NOT EXIST
10.76 Acres on Diane Drive, Susanville
just another Budget Scandal
$25,000 budgeted, Zero spent
In 2010, Supervisor Keefer wanted to build a new community Park in Johnstonville. The County had access to Prop 40 funds (2002, California Clean Water, Clean Air, Safe Neighborhood Parks and Coastal Protection Act).and Supervisor Keefer wanted to use these funds for a community park in his District.
The County land in Johnstonville soon proved to be unsuitable due to drainage issues. Caltrans yard across the road drained into the proposed park land. Caltrans was asked to mitigate this and agreed to grade their land so the water would be re-directed.
According to public records, the County budgeted $25,000 for the Park in 2010 but never spent anything. The Park was then re-located to Janesville and is now been re-named after Supervisor Keefer who lost his bid for re-election to Larry Wosick (a one term Supervisor)
TYPICAL OF THE
DECEPTIVE BUDGET PROCESS,
COUNTY SUPERVISORS TUCKED
HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS INTO THE PARK BUDGET ONLY TO BE REDIRECTED
