Sacramento County’s Local Agency Formation Commission held a meeting on Wednesday night and invited RLECWD general council and interim GM Ravi Mehta down for a trip to the woodshed.
The meeting will be rebroadcast on Saturday on Comcast channel 14. The time given was 2:00pm, but it’s always a good idea to double check. It’s worth watching. Everything that’s been said and questioned and doubted and wondered and examined over the past few years was validated.
Of course, LAFCo and the CDPH aren’t without culpability in his matter. They’ve waited so long to act that the district is now on the brink of failure and consolidation.
Some of the highlights from the meeting:
“How do we just put the management and governance into receivership?,” Commissioner Linda Budge.
“We are appalled at the level this has gone to,” Commissioner Steve Cohn.
“Some of actions the board is taking right now is sabotage,” Commissioner Chuck Rose.
“Better not be any Bell type incidents,” Commissioner Steve Cohn.
“No hope for this district unless you start doing the right things NOW,” Commissioner Chuck Rose.
The commission requests that the district fills GM position ASAP. (They made the STRONG reccomendation that Mychael be rehired immediately).
The current board should not enter into ANY NEW contracts or modify current contracts until after seating the new board.
Initiate the 218 process, AND an additional rate increase for needed operation and maintenance revenue.
Initiate a reorganization study involving CDPH, Sac City, Cal-Am and SSWD.
