Lassen County Public Improvement Corporation Meeting,
8/10/16 @11:00 AM- 221 S. Roop Street, Susanville
Supervisor Chapman Puts $444,908
Courthouse Construction Account
for his elevator
Supervisor Chapman managed to put $444,908 in Fund 127 for his elevator despite the County needing every penny left of the $4 million dollar loan to renovate the Riverside property.
Where did he get this $444, 908 ?
He moved it from the $10 million General Reserve Account because there will be no $$$ left from the LCPIC loan which has been grossly mis-managed .
Richard Egan, as CAO, has authority to move money without permission from the Board or the Public. The Public will never see this money being moved into other accounts.
This $444,908 will silently & methodically find its way to Courthouse Construction (Fund 150/1501/3006119) for Chapman's elevator.
The County now wants to spend $250,000 (ADA Compliance Study) to tell the County what they already know but have been unwilling to FUND ANY ACTUAL ADA COMPLIANCE.
Lassen County Budget Meeting
CAO Richard Egan makes adjustments to small line items to
be able to fund the Department pay increases + Egan claims he will take a million dollars from the County's $10 million Reserve
This County has been hiding huge amounts of reserve dollars in little used accounts so it wouldn't be noticed................Kan We Help noticed
District Attorney claims that the Public Defender Department will be minimized with her new software program and suggested that no new positions be approved for the Public Defender
Video of 8/23/16 Budget Meeting
Supervisor Chapman bores the staff with 15 minutes of worthless trivia
Supervisor Chapman still managed to put $444,908 in Fund 127 for his elevator despite the County needing every penny left of the $4 million dollar loan to renovate the Riverside property.
Last budget meeting (August 30, 2016) before the Budget is presented to the public
Lassen County Spends $250,000 to be in
Americans with Disability Act
....look at Fund 150 below...it already has $200,000 in it ?....
The 1973 law was intended to bring all businesses in compliance by 1981. However, the law kept being amended and made compliance impossible. Now public entities that receive Federal assistance must be in compliance before Grants are approved.
SZS Consulting Group will not bring Lassen County into compliance. For $250,000 it will identify Lassen County deficiencies (previous studies have never been utilized) and train County staff on current laws. The contract includes $25,000 for "public hearings"
The majority of Lassen County owned buildings do not comply with the ADA law
As Lassen County repaired or remodeled a few buildings they included ADA compliance in all public contracts, however the majority of County buildings have been neglected. Supervisors have been allowed to look the other way in lieu of pursuing their personal projects.
CAO Richard Egan intentionally failed to identify the "Account" line items for moving the $250,000 transfers. Where will this money really be spent?
August 23, 2016 Board of Supervisors Meeting
Supervisors approved a tentative Budget (2015/2016) until the 2016/2017 Budget could be finalized
Can we assume the "Equipment" dollars (Fund 119/Budget 1191/Account 3006200) won't be used for this "Service Contract"?
Should we assume $250,000, from Fund 119/Account 3007000, is being moved to Fund 150/Budget 1501/Account 3002300?
Fund 150/1501/3002300 has already budgeted $200,000.
The transfer could have been $50,000 !
CAO Richard Egan decided not to include the entire packet which included SZS Consulting Group's Contract and Proposal. Instead Egan included just Public Works one page letter in the Agenda
We have obtained copies & will post the Contract & 60 page SZS Proposal
HONEY LAKE POWER
The hapless LCT showcases Honey Lake Powers imminent demise
It can't cover its' costs with low natural gas competition. LCT acts like that is the whole story.... so PG&E rather than sustain a LEGALLY REQUIRED mandate to provide Green Power....which HLP does.
Worse yet, LMUD will let it die like they let Mt. Lassen Power die and have NO source of back up power when the Deer Creek PG&E lines go down again. Yet LMUD had MILLIONS$$$$$$ on fraudulent Arrowrock project.

Lassen County Airport Land Use Commission Approves
Amedee Army Airfield Land Use Plan
Supervisor Hammond did not recuse himself from the votes. He has two businesses in Herlong that will benefit from his vote. He also receives money from the County on his gas station in Herlong
L to R: Representative from Mead & Hunt, Lassen County Planning Gaylon Norwood, LCALUC Rep.Deborah Shockly
Lassen County Owns the Amedee Army Airfield but the Army has a 50 year lease with an option to an additional 50 years.
The US Army TACOM, in Warren, Michigan, decides who lands at this Airfield not the Sierra Army Depot Commander's Staff
Tom Hammond and the Sierra Army Depot representative Lori McDonald
continue to misrepresent private use of the Army's Airfield
Public Affairs Officer Lori McDonald and Chief of Staff Aric Manner stated that HSP could use the Amedee Airfield.........when they both were told that was not true
No representative from Sierra Army Depot attended the August 11, 2016 Vote by the Airport Commission
HSP (Hayes, Smith, Pezzullo) must now pay the County
for this $48,000 Use Plan
HSP purchased the land surrounding the Army's Airfield, from Lassen County, for $25,000
Kan We Help prevented the County from including the East end of the runway.

Lassen County Holds a Walk-through
2950 Riverside Building
Bids due: September 1, 2016
4:00 PM @ 220 S. Roop Street, Susanville
Contractors showed up for yet another walk-though before they decide whether or not to bid on this project
Contractors continue to have the same concerns:
incomplete plans, questions unanswered and the County's $600,000 Budget
The only bid so far has been $1.4 million which the County rejected
Contractors were concerned that the Change Orders alone (for the unknowns) would exceed their original bid and of course will Lassen County have the money to pay them
Lassen County purchased this building WITHOUT ANY INSPECTIONS
It is the County's intentions (according to the plans & specifications) to put a few fire extinguishers around the building.
NO FIRE INSPECTION ACCORDING TO THE STATE FIRE MARSHALL'S OFFICE
NO MONEY FOR A SPRINKLER SYSTEM
NO MONEY FOR SAFETY
Lassen County Pays the County's Volunteer Fire Departments
*Firenet Fees Each Year
*fire 911 dispatch service
Chapman threatens to NOT PAY the Firenet Fees
and then asks the Volunteers to pay 10% of the fees
This has been Supervisor Chapman's Budget Policy for 40 years. He threatens to take personnel away or cut budgets to intimidate County Departments.
This is the same Supervisor that took $133,000 out of one of his orifices to pay for the third feasibility study for his "elevator"

This will be Chapman's last Budget
Susanville Attorney Eugene Chittock
Costs LMUD Ratepayers
Eugene Chittock filed a lawsuit on January 27, 2011 so that LMUD would not have to clean-up their Hayden Hill 69kv transmission lines they purchased from Kinross Gold on December 17, 2007.
This cheap suit filed a Motion to declare KWH a vexatious litigant on August 12, 2010 so that Kan We Help could not intervene on his intention to bilk the LMUD ratepayers. Chittock was paid $12,472 for filing this Motion.
Most *S.L.A.P.P. Motions like this are denied
*strategic lawsuit against public participation
This motion did not rise to the level of a vexatious litigant (7 or more failed lawsuits. Kan We Help filed 1 Writ of Mandate against LMUD for the Arrowrock scam), but Judge Bradbury signed it never the less. Judge Bradbury did not disclose that he was in business
with LMUD's Frank Cady.
LMUD attorney Eugene Chittock lied to the public about
the Hayden Hill History...Why... for profit $$$
Public Records disclose that LMUD Filed an alleged Exemption to clean up the Hayden Hill transmission lined on
December 23, 2009
as stated by Eugene Chittock
to the Lassen County Times on July 26, 2016
If LMUD filed a "Notice of Exemption"
on December 23, 2009, there was no reason
for LMUD to allow Chittock
to file this lawsuit on January 27, 2011 to avoid
LMUD's liability ceased to exist on July 20, 2010
Ratepayers paid $341,000 for Chittock's folly
....and he is still employed by LMUD?

Supervisors Looking for Replacement
Lassen County's Clumsy Attempt to Right a Wrong
Lassen County Community Development Commission
Does Not Exist?
The Lassen County Supervisors tried to move money and transfer property belonging to the Lassen County Community Development Commission, WITHOUT CONVENING THIS COMMISSION.
A Commission they claimed, on March 31, 2016, DID NOT EXIST.
After Kan We Help exposed that the "Community Development Commission" did exist, the County started moving backwards to correct this deliberate oversight.
Kan We Help exposed:
1. Supervisors approved placing $50,000 in a parking lot account (Fund 588) to repay the restricted USDA Grant, hoping no one would notice. KAN WE HELP NOTICED.
2. Supervisors never intended to pay the the USDA Grant back. When Kan We Help asked for proof that this loan was re-paid the check was then written. Public records indicate that the USDA check was written on June 8, 2016
The Westwood Warehouse, under the Grant, could not be used by the Sheriff's Department without re-paying the USDA Grant. Again, the Supervisors unilaterally took this action without convening the Lassen County Community Development Commission. The Supervisors hoped that no one would notice. KAN WE HELP NOTICED
3. Supervisors moved the maintenance of the Westwood Warehouse property to Public Works due to the fact that the Sheriff's Department has no money to maintain a Sheriff Substation at the Westwood Warehouse on Birch Street.
4. On July 26, 2016, the Supervisors placed the Lassen County Community Development Commission on the Agenda. But moved the meeting to Beiber (over one hour from Susanville). Supervisor Chapman did not attend this meeting. Supervisor Albaugh Chaired the meeting. Discussion started on Agenda F Boards and Commissions before the Board of Supervisors convened as the LCCDC. After this was corrected, a question was asked about Resolution 16-2016 deeding the Westwood property to the Sheriff.
Was this an error if it was done twice?
Lassen County's Request to Change
Big Valley Basin
Groundwater Boundaries Denied
Modoc County Formally Rejects
Lassen County Groundwater Boundary Change Proposal
CAO Richard Egan did not place this issue on the Agenda so Modoc County and Lassen County residents could participate in the discussions. Egan brought this issue up under the last Agenda item: Board Information. The Board was told to blame Modoc County's opposition to this boundary change.
Egan announced that Lassen County's request to expand the Big Valley Basin groundwater boundaries was denied.
honesty and integrity
DOES NOT EXIST WITH THE LASSEN COUNTY SUPERVISORS
Supervisor Jim Chapman demands dishonesty
The Board of Supervisors Agenda includes a Consent Calendar which is intended for routine items. Jim Chapman has abused this Agenda item more than any other Supervisor in the history of Lassen County.
On July 12, 2016, Jim Chapman placed two Agenda items inappropriately in the Consent Calendar.
The long term policy of complying with the Brown Act allowed the public to pull items for discussion in the Consent Calendar because the Board attempts to approve these alleged "routine" issues with one vote.
NOW, THE CONSENT CALENDAR IS JUST BEING ABUSED WITH ISSUES THAT ARE NOT by any stretch of the imagination......routine.
Agenda item G-5 was pulled by Supervisor Hammond. This issue was NOT A ROUTINE ITEM. Agenda item G-7 was pulled by Supervisor Hemphill. Agenda item G-7 was certainly NOT A ROUTINE ITEM (a vote to spend $1,000,000). A separate vote was taken on each Consent Agenda item (G-5 & G-7).
Supervisors Discussion on G-5 & G-7
The July 12, 2016 Minutes, prepared by Julie Bustamante, however reflect these Consent Calendar agenda items being moved out of the Consent Calendar into Agenda H, Department Reports.
The County Clerk refused to correct this and is complicit in the deception
These Consent Agenda items (G-5 & G7) were deliberately moved into Agenda H (Department Reports ) in the Minutes by Chapman and Bustamante. All the Supervisors were notified about this deliberate deception and not one stood up to correct it at the July 26, 2016 meeting in Beiber. This action does not preclude Chapman's violation of Brown Act
TRUST.......THAT WAS GONE THE MINUTE CHAPMAN BECAME BOARD CHAIRPERSON
Lassen County CAO Issues
Third Request for Proposal
for the Remodel of the
@ 2950 Riverside Property
The Supervisors rejected the bid because they don't have the money.
CAO Richard Egan suggests that the work be bid out in piece work and the County will be the General Contractor. The problem with this is Lassen County does not have ANY PERSONNEL WITH THE SKILLS TO DO THIS. Also, Egan believes that it will be harder to track the money they spend.
this decision will end up costing the taxpayers double and will delay occupancy until 2017.
Julie Bustamante's Agenda Deception
Lassen County Clerk, Julie Bustamante
All Lassen County Supervisors have been notified that County Clerk, Julie Bustamante, intends to falsify the July 12, 2016 Board of Supervisors Meeting Minutes.
July 12, 2016 Consent Calendar
Bustamante's Minutes reflect that these Consent Calendar Agenda Items have been placed in "Department Reports".
Next, will Bustamante add agenda items that don't even exist ?
Will her next attempt be to add Agenda items to Minutes that were never even on any Agenda
Kan We Help Exposed the Failure of the Supervisors

Public Records indicate that the LCCDC never met to approve any pay back of the $50,000 USDA loan or transfer ownership or use of this property
Richard Egan claimed that the Community Development Commission was dissolved

Lassen County Codes
Kan We Help has stayed on this story and now the Supervisors are being forced to take care of the "unfinished" business with this Commission........but to go out-of-town to do it?
The Lassen County Supervisors are Cowards in the worst way
They put the SEIU Unfair Labor Practice Complaint issue in "Closed Session" and then take their show out of town to Beiber on July 26, 2016
On April 13, 2016, a SEIU representative asked in Public Comment the Fund & Budget their members are paid from. The Supervisors refused to disclose that very "public information"
On July 12, 2016, a SEIU representative again asked in PUBLIC COMMENT for the Supervisors to get involved. The County has refused to recognize the SEIU Labor Union. The Union is asking for a $ .50 raise for these in-home care givers.
Chapman attempts to belittle this presentation as inappropriate
Let's look at September 8, 2015 last year when one of the Sheriff's Departments contract negotiations broke down and was pushed to an impass

Cindy Vonseca, from SEIU, Local 2015, is a member of a 300,000 member Union that represents long term health care workers. These workers help seniors and the disabled stay in their homes.
The Union wants a $.50 raise and Lassen County refuses to recognize the Union workers and will not bargain with their Union.
Listen to how Supervisor Chapman treats the people that help our seniors and disabled.
Where is the shame, Mr. Chapman, when these same people helped your own father?
Think about this Mr. Chapman: Some day they will be emptying your bed pan...............
Bustamante Just Doesn't Care
The regularly scheduled July 19, 2016 Board of Supervisors meeting was cancelled. But still no Notice to the public on the Supervisors website recording this canceled meeting.
What a tangled web we weave when first
we practice to deceive
The regularly scheduled July 26, 2016 Board of Supervisors
meeting has suddenly become a
"SPECIAL" meeting in Bieber ?
Kan We Help has informed the County Clerk that Agenda Item G-2, in the 7/26/16 Consent Calendar, fails to report, in the July 12, 2016 Minutes, that Consent Calendar G-5 and G-7 were pulled by Supervisors for discussion and had a separate vote. Instead, the County Clerk has placed these two items incorrectly in "Department Reports"
(Agenda G, Consent Calendar, illegally prohibits the public from pulling any of the Consent Calendar items for discussion; Brown Act Violation 54954.3)

LASSEN MUNICIPAL UTILITY DISTRICT LAWSUIT DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE
FRAUD FROM DAY ONE
Nagel, Stewart and Cady were fraudulently taking $30,000 checks from individuals that were told they were going to get POWER.
Fred Nagel knew before he took money from the Willow Creek landowners that LMUD could never provide power to Willow Creek [ Willow Creek was not in LMUD's territory]
LMUD Director Fred Nagel & the LMUD Board, Frank Cady and Bill Stewart purchased the contaminated Hayden Hill Gold Mine. This land purchase was outside LMUD's Territory (Surprise Valley Electric territory). Nagel/Cady and Stewart then concocted this scam of selling power to area land owners for a fee of $30,000.
This person was found dead, from a gunshot, in his home in Southern California
The owners, Kinross Gold, were required to remove their power lines and restore the land when the mine was closed, but sold this HUGE LIABILITY to the scam artists. Surprise Valley Electric Cooperative, who supplied the power to the gold mine, told LMUD they would not be involved.
LMUD Attorney Eugene Chittock advised the LMUD Board to file a lawsuit against Kinross Gold to dump the property back to Kinross Gold.
The lawsuit failed and cost the LMUD ratepayers hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees and LMUD still owns this BOONDOGGLE.
The mandatory clean up alone will cost a fortune
Lassen Municipal Utility District has a history of buying "contaminated" property & less than honest business dealings
This frivolous lawsuit, filed by Chittock on January 27, 2011, was based on LMUD claiming the LMUD Board had no knowledge of the land purchase...............but then this June 11, 2009 LMUD letter was discovered.
Surprise Valley Electric NEVER agreed to take part in this scam on any level
The LMUD ratepayers might want to take a second look
at the LMUD Board election in November
District 1 Director (fred nagel)
District 4 Director (richard vial)

$62,682.50 Elevator Study Invoice for
Jim Chapman's New Boardroom
In 2015, the Lassen County Supervisors approved a contract to Lionakis to do a "study" on installing an elevator at the old courthouse on Lassen Street for Supervisor Chapman's new Boardroom.
Chapman pushed for his new Board room to be completed before he leaves office in December/2016.
Kan We Help reminded the Supervisors over and over that no money was budgeted for this and the Supervisors should concentrate on finishing the 20 year old recently acquired 2950 Riverside.
But the Supervisors approved the Lionakis $133,000 contract anyway, but never paid Lionakis.
Public Records show that Lionakis was finally paid $62,682.50 on June 16, 2016.
The taxpayers received a $62,682.50 "slideshow" presentation
One Bid was received for the remodel of 2950 Riverside: $1,433,709

The Joint Powers Authority, HLVRA,
Wants the $80,000 Annual Payment
from Lassen County
Community Pool by August
THE COUNTY DOES NOT HAVE IT
According to Lassen County CAO Richard Egan, the HLVRA has asked Lassen County to pay the annual payment early in August.
However, the original conditions have changed since the Lassen County Supervisors voted to take out a $4,080,000 loan to build the new pool and purchase a building.
The Supervisors grossly deceived the public about the use of the "loan" and now have no money to pay the $80,000 this year or future years for annual maintenance support for Community pool (yet to be completed)
.....or remodel their new Riverside building..........
When Kan We Help asked what the annual payment would be, on the loan, the Supervisors refused to disclose the amount. This payment is due on June 4 of each year until 2035.
According to Lassen County CAO Richard Egan, the HLVRA has now asked, for the Supervisors, to pay the annual payment early in August of 2016.
The original conditions have changed since the Lassen County Supervisors voted to take out a $4,080,000 loan to build the new pool and purchase a building. The Supervisors can no longer use the Fund 169/Tobacco Settlement Fund to pay for the HLVRA annual payments.
THE FIRST PAYMENT WAS JUST MADE ON THIS LOAN
This annual $300,000 loan payment
all of the Tobacco Settlement Fund each year
The Supervisors told the public the County's annual HLVRA support payment would be paid from the Tobacco Settlement Fund. There is no money left in this Fund
The next Tobacco payment from the State: APRIL/2017
THE LASSEN COUNTY AUDITOR STATED THAT, AS OF JULY 12, 2016, THERE IS LESS THAN $1,300 LEFT IN THE TOBACCO SETTLEMENT FUND
ANYONE WORRIED ABOUT THE 2016/2017 LASSEN COUNTY BUDGET?

Lassen County Airport Land Use Commission
on Amedee Army Airfield
July 7, 2016: Last day for public Comments to be submitted
Public Hearing for Vote: August 11, 2016
Lassen County Airport Land Use Commission
Attempted to Meet @1:30 PM, on June 30, but
Only Three Commissioners of the Seven
Showed Up for the 1:30 PM Publicly Noticed Meeting:
a quorum is four
Lassen County Planning Department Staff member Gaylon Norwood called the two Lassen County Supervisors on this Commission, District 1 Supervisor Bob Pyle and District 5 Supervisor Tom Hammond. Norwood was unable to reach Supervisor Pyle. When Supervisor Hammond was reached he claimed that he had forgotten about the meeting.
The "public comment" period for the Amedee Army Airport Land Use Plan ends on July 7, 2016.
NORWOOD CLAIMED THAT THIS PUBLIC MEETING
WAS NOT REQUIRED AND WOULD NOT BE RESCHEDULED
Supervisor Hammond showed up at 2:15 PM and the meeting was convened.
Kan We Help Secretary Eileen Spencer asked the Commissioners to look at Section 2.2.2 This section would allow major land uses such as residential development (2.2.2 (g)) within the 2.8 mile Area of Influence of the Commission.
Any of the actions listed in Section 2.2.2 would need to be reviewed by the ALUC (Area Land Use Commission), however Supervisor Hammond asked that Section 2.3 be removed in its' entirety.
Sierra Army Depot representatives were present and told the Commissioners that they would be open to sharing the Army's airfield.
Of course, this was a
and they both knew it.
If adopted, this Land Use Plan would also allow

Lassen County Pays Off RBEG Grant
Allowing the Sheriff's Department
Open a Westwood Substation
Lassen County Supervisors voted to close the "Business Parks" in Westwood and Bieber and transfer the maintenance of these buildings to Public Works.
The Lassen County Auditor announced that Fund 588 would be closed and the remaining balance of approximately $20,000 would be transferred to the "General Fund". These funds are RESTRICTED and cannot be placed for general use, but they did it anyway?
In 2015 and again in March of 2016, Kan We Help challenged the $50,000 suddenly being placed in Fund 588. It appeared the Supervisors never intended to convene the Community Development Commission to legally take any action on the Westwood property. After Kan We Help challenged this action again, a check for $50,000 was sent to USDA to repay the Grant on June 9, 2016.
This warehouse, in Westwood, can now be used by Lassen County unrestricted.
Kan We Help suggests the remaining funds that were moved to the GENERAL FUND be used to move the Sheriff into this building............ASAP

FOR CHAPMAN'S ELEVATOR
Lassen County CAO Richard Egan paid too much for this old building knowing that it had major repairs. Egan told the Supervisors that he could buy and improve this building for $1,700,000.
The building was appraised at $1,000,000. Egan paid $1,300,000 and told the Supervisors that it would cost $700,000 to repair. The only bid on the repairs was $1,433,709
This does not include the cost of a "fire protection" system
Kan We Help posted a photo of deer eating in the "Community Pool" Site on May 1, 2016

This $2,750,00 "seasonal pool" will open the Spring of 2017. Between March and June of 2017
Over the years (since 2013) the pool got smaller

The Lassen County Supervisors will meet again today at 2:00 PM to discuss the 2016-2017 Budget.
These five Supervisors almost pushed the Sheriff Deputies to strike last year when they refused to bargain with them.
THAT CAN'T HAPPEN AGAIN.
There are not enough Deputy's to protect citizens in
Lassen County any longer.
Call your Supervisor and tell them to fix the problems at the Sheriff's Department
1. Create upward mobility
2. Pay more or all of the Deputies health costs
3. Match the pay of the Correction Officers or pay more
DON'T LET THE LIES OF THE SUPERVISORS TELL YOU ANYMORE THEY ARE BROKE.

Lassen County Budget Talks Begin
Kan We Help will be providing video & the Minutes of this "public" Meeting
The purpose of the initial Budget meeting (with a very somber County Administrative Officer Richard Egan who arrived late) was to look at new County positions and/or reclassification of employees for pay increases
Undersheriff John Mineau made the presentation for Sheriff Dean Growden who was not present. Mineau made it perfectly clear the Department needs to change if they want to keep staff. He stated that if a Deputy is promoted to Sergeant they would lose $100 in pay.
THAT'S JUST NOT RIGHT
Also, CAO Richard Egan announced that yet another Veterans Affairs Representative will be leaving.
Future meetings will be determined at the 6/21/16 Board of Supervisors meeting

RURAL LASSEN COUNTY
Will hiring more Deputies make a difference?
These small rural communities, in Lassen County,
have little to
by law enforcement
Local crimes against the people are being ignored by Deputies and the District Attorney
WAKE UP LASSEN COUNTY SUPERVISORS
Lassen County residents are not safe

Does Not Qualify
to be a
Short sightedness, arrogance and an inexperienced Board
caused years of delays
