Stop the presses! CARD finally posting board meeting minutes on their website!

16 Apr

I sent a note to Chico Area Recreation District manager Ann Willmann because for years now I’ve turned to their website to look at reports of meetings and found them as much as a year behind in posting minutes. 


I wonder why there are not minutes posted for a board meeting since Nov 2016? I know the minutes have to be approved by the board, but I’ve been present when minutes have been approved, and they still haven’t been posted on the website.

 Thanks for your response, at your convenience, Juanita Sumner 

I’ve asked before, and been ignored, I was surprised by Willmann’s response:

Hi Juanita, the website has been updated. Thank you for your email. I have established a new process to ensure our minutes are posted in a more timely manner after approval. Ann

I couldn’t resist telling her it was about time.  At least three consultants have been paid so far – make that six, including the informational meeting she presented for the board – to tell Willmann and her staff to get the public engaged in CARD’s business. Instead she seems to make every effort to keep people from knowing what’s happening – another question I’ve had to ask is, why so many “special” meetings – which only have to be noticed 24 hours ahead with a piece of paper on the front door of the CARD center. 

Next time I see an 8-and-a-half by 11 piece of paper flapping on that door I’ll have to make a screeching turn into the parking lot and vault up there to see what’s happening!

CARD has already started a campaign to subtly make us believe we want to tax ourselves to pay down their $1.75 million pension deficit. Pay attention Folks, there’s pick-pockets about!

    Ohhhhh God please shut up. Are you so upset that you have to pay taxes like the rest of the country that you wine about the thought of it to anyone that’ll listen? You do nothing at all but wine. “I have to see the homeless” “I have to pay taxes” “people have retirement” “Don’t call me by my first name unless I have given permission” oh my favorite is when you talk about your dog or how your a landlord and own rental properties. I bet you rule the life of your renters like your QUEEN JAUNITA! reality check, your doing better then most and you still act like you shouldn’t be bothered to have to see all the poor citizens below you. So you bully everyone around you that you think should be making your life easier. How dare anyone not work at double speed to make your life any easier for YOU. Get a life jaunita.

      See, there you point it out – yes, they expect us to pay taxes/their salaries/pensions/health insurance, but our park looks like shit, criminals roam the streets stealing our kids’ bicycles, our streets have potholes big enough to swallow my dog.

      I see you must be a product of local schools and their bond debt – is your spelling for real?

      Yes, I provide very nice housing for hard working people. Try getting that out of the county sometime.

      Yes, I am a responsible dog owner.

      Who’s a bully?

      You make a comment like this on Easter Sunday, and tell me to get a life?

      In this state the taxes are much higher than what people in other parts of the country pay. And your ilk just jacked up the taxes we will be paying on gas, diesel and vehicle registrations. And when CARD comes out with another bond measure that will raise the taxes on our homes I’m sure you will be all for it. But even with all the tax increases the pensions will still be woefully underfunded so you will be back with yet more tax increases. You are a parasite and you are bleeding your host white.

        Thanks Bob, you said it.

        While I don’t feel this person is deserving of a response, I do think he represents a lot of public workers who feel they are literally entitled to be kept like some expensive whore. I think we need to shake them out of their delusions.
