2016/2017 Budget
2016/2017 budget
 
CAO Richard Egan warned the Board that even though the County was able to locate the money (in small over-budgeted accounts) to pay for all of the requests from Department Heads for new positions and pay increases, the County could not sustain this level of expenditures
 
9/13/16 audio
 
Egan threatened the County Department Heads, in the audience, that there will be eliminations of positions if/when they are vacated. Kan We Help was disappointed that this annual threat was unnecessarily made.
 
THEN.......
 
KAN WE HELP MADE A PRESENTATION !
 
 
 
Kan We Help offered the evidence where Chapman and Egan placed large amounts of money in small accounts to be transferred "quietly" into personal projects of the Supervisors and their friends
 
Last year Kan We Help found over $5,000,000 in  these small accounts. Only $2,000,000 was used
 
 
*Data was retrieved directly from nine Lassen County Accounts.  Additional Account
increases were not included if they were under 10%.

 

Richard Egan's poor management of the $4,080,000 loan is the reason he will dip into Lassen County's Reserve Account ($1.6 million) for Chapman's elevator

Time to Pay

When HSP Resources (Hal Hayes, Larry Smith and Steve Pezzullo) purchased the 3,000 + acres around the Sierra Army Depot for $25,000 they promised to pay for the Airport Land Use Plan

Kan We Help has followed  HSP Resouces public land purchases since HSP Resources purchased the town of Herlong for $31,500 (435 Acres)

Kan We Help submitted a Public Records Request on August 31, 2016  for a copy of the Invoice sent to HSP Resources for the cost of the Airport Land Use Plan

 

and an Invoice was subsequently produced dated September 1, 2016

In August of 2011, the Army, not Sierra Army Depot, signed an Agreement with Lassen County to Lease-back the Army's Amedee Airfield for 50 years with an option of an additional 50 years.

HSP Resources will never OWN OR BE ABLE TO USE the Amedee Army Airfield in Herlong

The US Army TACOM, in Warren, Michigan,  decides who lands at this Airfield not the Sierra Army Depot Commander's  S T A F F.

April 11, 2015 letter from Major General Gwen Bingham to Kan We Help:

" SIAD's Public Affairs Officer, Ms. Lori McDonald, reiterated to the HSP Resources representative that the US Army could not enter into a separate partnership at the airfield with any organization"

 

The majority of the Amedee parcels Lassen County sold to HSP Resources are contaminated. The 2004 Remediation Plan must still be complied with.

On November 28, 2000, the Lassen County Board of Supervisors agreed to take 4788 acres of surplus Army land in Herlong. 435 Acres for the Town of Herlong

4353 Acres of hazardous munitions and ordinances surrounding the Amedee Army Airfield

2004 CEPA Remediation Report states a

 $2.4 million cost to clean it up and the

liability to clean it up is with SAID

THE SUPERVISORS REFUSED TO DISCLOSE THIS IN THEIR

AUGUST 19, 2014 RFP ?

 

 Kan We Help demanded that this contamination disclosure be included in future Request for Proposals that were publicly issued. They complied

Riverside Building Remodel Bid

 a building before purchasing

 

 

This is what is left of the $4,080,000 Lassen County borrowed

on June 5, 2015

LCPIC

 

The original purpose of this loan was:

to purchase the BLM Building on Riverside in Susanville 

 donate a million dollars to the Honey Lake Valley Community Pool

remodel/restore the Riverside building and move four County Departments into it.................

 remodel the former Superior Court Building on Lassen Street in Susanville vacated by the State of California...........

CHAPMAN IS MOVING MONEY FROM THE GENERAL FUND TO PAY FOR HIS ELEVATOR

 

Lassen County could re-think the use of the Administration Building (on Roop) for relocating Public Works, Planning, the Auditor and the Supervisors Board room.

Kan We Help submitted this plan to the Board of Supervisors more than two years ago.   The bottom of the Administration building has been empty since the Court moved.   The Auditor's space (is street level on Roop) would accommodate a Supervisors Board Room (since their offices are right down the hall) and the Auditor could move to the empty space directly below (the existing staircase gives the Auditor access to the floor above)

Supervisor Chapman Puts $444,908

in the

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 LCPIC .

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. 

 

On July 8, 2014, Lassen County Board flew $$$ TRG's Harry Munyon $$$ from Palm Desert, CA to present an "alleged" "NEEDS ASSESSMENT" study.  This Study was commissioned two years ago at a cost of $8,000.  Study  NEVER USED........

 

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

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

 

August 23, 2016

Lassen County Spends $250,000 to be in

 Compliance

with the

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

Agenda H-1

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?

WHY DID EGAN HIDE THE CONTRACT, PROPOSAL AND "HOW" HE PLANNED TO PAY FOR THIS

$250,000 EXPENSE?

 

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

 

Kan We Help was told that Public Works submitted SZS Consulting Group, LLC's Proposal and Contract to Richard Egan and CAO Egan decided not to disclose this to the public. 

 

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

 

 

 

April 11, 2015 letter from Major General Gwen Bingham to Kan We Help:

" SIAD's Public Affairs Officer, Ms. Lori McDonald, reiterated to the HSP Resources representative that the US Army could not enter into a separate partnership at the airfield with any organization"

 

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

of

2950 Riverside Building

for the

Third RFP

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

Susanville Attorney Eugene Chittock

Costs LMUD Ratepayers

$341,000

for

Frivolous Lawsuit

 

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

 

THE PROBLEM FOR CHITTOCK:

LMUD filed a Notice of Exemption, so they would not be required to do the clean-up on December 23, 2009

 

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.

 

 

 

August 6, 2016

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

NOT 2014

as stated by Eugene Chittock

to the Lassen County Times on July 26, 2016

 

This December 23, 2009   Notice of Exemption states that LMUD is not liable for the removal  of transmission lines

at the Hayden Hill Gold Mine or the reclamation required by Lassen County.

So, the lawsuit Chittock filed on January 27, 2011 was not only frivolous but deceitful

$341,000 of Deceit

Chittock filed a vexatious motion against KWH to prevent any intervention KWH response

Lassen County Planning Department is the Lead Agency for the Hayden Hill Reclamation Plan & was never informed about this alleged "Notice of Exemption".

 

 LMUD Directors posted a Bond & applied for a Use Permit with Lassen County to comply with the Reclamation Plan after purchasing the 13 miles of 69 kv transmission lines  on December 17,  2007  & now the public is supposed to believe that LMUD was justified in filing a lawsuit to avoid cleaning up the Hayden Hill lines  by claiming Frank Cady, LMUD's Attorney//General Manager didn't have the authority to buy it ?

Ten years later, after Kan We Help exposed this fraud in 2006, LMUD is still lying about Hayden Hill

 

 

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

any clean-up

 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?

 

LMUD Director Fred Nagel was collecting thousands of dollars from Willow Creek landowners in 2006 falsely promising them LMUD would provide power to them through the Hayden Hill lines.....that LMUD did not own

LMUD does not plan to return any of the deposits

 

 

FRED NAGEL & FRANK CADY SIGNED THE $65,000 CHECK TO PURCHASE THE HAYDEN HILL 69 KV TRANSMISSION LINES ON DECEMBER 13, 2007 BUT THE PURCHASE AGREEMENT WAS NOT SIGNED UNTIL DECEMBER 17, 2007.

Lassen County's Clumsy Attempt to Right a Wrong

Lassen County Community Development Commission

Does Not Exist?

Westwood Warehouse

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?

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 Consent Agenda 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 the votewas 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

 

 

 

 

Deliberate 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

"WHITE ELEPHANT"

@ 2950 Riverside Property

Absolutely no inspections were ordered by Lassen County prior to purchasing this 20 year old building.

The Lassen County CAO recommended buying this overpriced falling apart building that was never maintained for $1,300,000.

 Now, the Supervisors have to repair this building that will end up costing over a $1,000,000. In the meantime it just sits there.......

Kan We Help will watch every penny

 

The Supervisors rejected the bid because they don't have the money.

Listen to the Supervisors conversation on this subject

Bid Rejected

 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.

GUARANTEED:

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 ?

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?

 

 

July 24, 2016

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.

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

Lassen County Refuses to Bargain

With long term health care workers

SEIU Local 2015 files Unfair Labor Practice complaint against Lassen County

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.

 

When Lassen County refused to give the Sheriff's Deputies a raise and pushed them almost to a Strike, Chapman never said a word when all of the Deputies came before the Board in "PUBLIC COMMENT" to protest

 

Listen listen to Chapmanto 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...............

 

 

Chapman cancelled the July 19 Board of Supervisors meeting and moved the next one 60 miles out of Susanville

You can run Mr. Chapman but you can't hide

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)

 

BUSTAMANTE HASN'T CARED

ABOUT HER JOB

IN A

LONG, LONG, LONG TIME

 

It is just a paycheck

Two Lassen County residents drove (from Doyle) to attend the July 19, 2016 Board of Supervisors meeting in Susanville and the  doors were locked
