Updated on Coffee with the Chief meeting

 

Coffee with the Chief was held at Coffee Nutz on Foothill inRialto. It was a great time sitting down with Chief Farrar and Captain Deanda. About 15 – 20 people were there to openly dialogue about their local community. It began with the chief introducing himself and it took little time for people to dive right in. Owner Andy Carrizales was one of the many in attendance. There were also members from the Human Relations Board, two massive Neighborhood Watch groups and regular residents.

The President and Vice President of the Human Relations Board were there to get some answers on the possibility of a Chili Cook Off between the Fire Dept. and Rialto PD.

Chief Farrar said that he had not received their contact requests. With reference to the Cook Off and it would depend on if the city was going to have their battle of the badges this year where they do have a chili cook off. The matter would be further researched and an answer would be given at a later date.

Linda Chapman from the Human Relations Board announced that a customer service survey was done on Rialto PD and that the results and report were in the works.

 

Chief touched on some of the ways the police department was using resources wisely and keeping things like SWAT, The Helicopter Program, and Drug and Gang Enforcement available to the City ofRialto. Using these functions in conjunction with neighboring cities likeColtonandFontanaallows the costs to be shared and intel to flow more freely.  Figures were also shared on what our K-9 program has accomplished. In the last year they have seized 1.2 million dollars in property and taken 1 million dollars in drugs off the street.

Chief also spoke about the effects of the state’s Early Release Program on local communities and crime. Rialto PD has one adult and one juvenile probation officers assigned toRialto. Having this resource, Rialto PD hopes to stay on top of the early release inmates and be there to enforce their probation rules when they break them.

 

Chief spoke about the importance of getting graffiti off ASAP and would check into complaints that TAGS were staying up for 5-6 days after being reported. If you have graffiti that isn’t being removed after you call it in you can call Public Works Official Tim Sullivan at (909) 421-7229.

 

Many ways to foster positive relationships between our police and the youth were discussed: They included small community afternoons to reach out to the youth in a more positive manner in conjunction with the Area Command Meetings, having game trailers out at the meetings might draw more families and give the parents the ability to sit and get important information without worrying if their kids are bored, having hot dogs, chips and a drink could eliminate the need for families to cram dinner in before coming to the meetings.

 

Finally the topic that I enjoyed the most was the fact that this chief’s goal was to be more transparent than any before. Capt De Anda said he directed Sgt’s to go around to people in the community and give them some information on what is taking place (in their neighborhood after an incident) so that people’s fears and imaginations wouldn’t run wild and the community would feel like they are a part owner in public safety working alongside the police not separate or against them.

 

These meetings are a great way to get involved, have a voice and be more informed about what is happening in the community. I would invite everyone to come out to the next meeting on July 10th. It is time well spent.

Won this (Water) Battle, Yet Still forging on the War Front

Below is the form email that went out from SOS Water, the organization that is spearheading the drive to allow City of Rialto Voters to vote on the decision to outsource our water and waste water systems. I hope this push proves a few things to the city council and mayor of Rialto:

  • Simple transperity isn’t enough when it comes to our water and a 30 year contract – Besides people who either work for the city, sit on a city commission/board or belong to a group or organization that is owned by the city government no one things that the information meetings were informative, they were more confusing. No other proposals were shown, staff presenting the information came off cocky and rude & people were left with more questions than answers.
  • When the people (Rialto Residents) speak listen – 80+ people signed up to speak on the impending vote on water services & the city council choose to instead listen to Union reps, possible future business owners, labor lobbies & inappropriate city mouth pieces (Ref June Hayes calling one of the speakers a card carving communist). When Rialto business owners and residents filled 4 rooms and spoke their piece and you still chose to ignore it, you work for us remember that.
  • For years this city government has made a choice to ignore the water system, now when RDA funds are gone we make a made dash for the first person willing to pay us off. How is this fair to the city? Why should the residents pay for your lack of leadership. It was best said today as Governor Brown was making his latest pitch for higher taxes he ask a reporter if she didn’t like his plan what did she think he should do and she said “THATS YOUR JOB”. IF the city water is in such disrepair then let’s get to work fixing it. Start off by using the 30 million dollars the Utility owes you and let’s get to work. Then lets talk about slow graduated increases that will hurt less over time to obtain the remainder of the money and finish the work. By the councils own admission this alone will bring business here that was avoiding us because of our water systems age and disrepair. I don’t agree that is why they are avoiding us but that’s for another post.
  • SOS is comprised from people out-of-state that have seen American Water at work and know first hand what type of service they provide. This doesnt bother me one bit because without the hard work and passion of the people of Rialto their efforts would have died out eons ago.

Dear friends and neighbors:

On Saturday, May 12, we filed our petition with the City Clerk with substantially more than enough signatures to place the water privatization scheme before the voters of Rialto.  Under California law, this means that the City will be required to present this critical issue to a vote of the people.

We needed 10% of the registered voters of Rialto to qualify for the ballot – or just over 3,600 signatures.  Instead, we turned in more than 6,400 signatures!

The people of Rialto really came through to let City Council know that the voters of Rialto deserve to have the final say on this misguided 30-year privatization scheme.

The next step is that the City will review our petition to verify that we have submitted a sufficient number of valid signatures.  After that, this issue should be presented to a public ballot sometime over the next few months.  We will need to re-double our efforts to make certain this water privatization contract is defeated at the ballot box.

In addition, in the next few days we will be sending Prop 218 protest cards to all Rialto property owner who are affected by the huge rate hikes that the City Council is trying to push through to finance this deal.  If a majority of property owners protest these rate hikes, then the City cannot impose the rate increases and the entire water privatization scheme fails.

We will keep you posted on both of these efforts as we move forward.

Congratulations again for all of your hard work and for standing up for the future of Rialto.

The person that really makes out on Rialto’s Water Sale

Who Really owns Rialto?????

Below is a letter from the San Bernardino Sun Newspaper from realeste developer  Randall Lewis. In it he makes it sound like what the city council did by voting to outsource our water department was a good thing. What it really boils down to is a group of lobbies that are getting well fed while the rate payer suffer for the next 30 yrs. What people like Midge Zupanic, Max & Pualine Tiddler, the Mayor and all of council don’t seem to understand is we can swallow the idea that rates may need to be adjusted, and that the repairs that THEY have failed to implement over the years need to be done. But what we don’t need to do is:

  • Promise American Water or any other company a 30 year contract that runs like a mortgage, meaning if we get a few years into this and find out they couldn’t deliver on their promises we are on the hook to re-pay 130 million early termination charge that reduces by 4 million for every year until the end of 30 years.
  • Promise American Water or any other company 30% profit every year for 30 years.
  • Use the 30 million dollar pay off to line the pockets of developers like Ron Pharris or Randall Lewis.
  • To pander to one union while stabbing another in the back.

The reason you have petitions in circulation right now is the AFL-CIO/TEAMSTERS will lose the shop because it will no longer be a union shop, the current employees are only guaranteed their jobs for a year and a half after that there is no promises of jobs. So while they are singing the praises of creating jobs in the industry of construction of the water system upgrades, they are signing the pink slips for every water and waste water employee & their families. Our Mayor and city council sold their own people down the river for the promise of a Target Shopping Center, a Super Walmart (which is still in litigation), a Lowes and then maybe we will finish the In and Out Project. Most of this money (30 million Dollar pay off) will be given to Randall Lewis for his “Target” Shopping Center. Our water employees family’s will suffer because of this councils actions and the prior ones inactions.

  • Fail to give the community the ability to decide. People have to force the city to seek out what the public thinks and wants to do.

Most of the proponents of this Sale are Elderly meaning they Qualify for the 20% discount for low-income and senior citizens. Also meaning that they wont be alive to see the end of this bad deal. Yet we will all suffer their ill-informed, illegal decision.

So when you get recorded calls from the city telling you not to sign the petition and allow democracy to decide this very important decision, or the city manager mayor and  sell Rialto down the river lobby (Randall Lewis and Ron Pharris) write letters to the sun stating how great this is and that we should be proud of this council and mayor. Listen to what their not saying. If you see them tell them what you think and ask them why we didn’t hear any of the other proposals from local companies working with local water and waste water systems. Ask them if they will repeal the brown lawn ordnance since we will no longer be able to afford to water our lawns. Ask them if they even CARE.

 

 

Rialto invests in itself

RandallLewissbsun.com

Posted:   05/03/2012 09:05:21 PM PDT

A city’s economic vitality is based in large part on its ability to create jobs and it’s commendable to see that the leaders of Rialto understand that necessity. The city has faced difficult choices and will face more in the months ahead as it positions itself for an economic recovery that will favor those communities with the infrastructure to compete for new businesses.We understand that growth requires investment, and appreciate what Rialto has done in that regard. Recently, the City Council took the difficult step of raising water rates, with the very specific intention of reinvesting in the community to help make Rialto more competitive.

However, it doesn’t end there. With the loss of redevelopment agencies, cities need to be more resourceful and visionary than ever. They need to address challenges head on and turn them into opportunities.

By taking bold steps, Rialto is fulfilling its promise of a “2nd Century of Progress.” That bodes well for the city’s economy and its ability to provide residents with the essential services they’ve come to expect.

Dining choices are few

I have lived in Rialto since 1969 and during that time the leadership in this community has done little or nothing to attract quality businesses.

There is no Target, Office Max, Best Buy, etc. I am amazed when I venture to north Fontana and see the businesses in the Summit Center. How did Fontana succeed when all we get from the Rialto mayor and her cronies are empty promises of a Target and an In-N-Out? One of the promises was if they built a new fire station that the land left vacant would be used to build an In-N-Out.

I am still waiting to order my double-double.

Other than Carrows and Corky’s, there is not even a good sit-down family restaurant north of Base Line. There are discount 99-cent stores and fast-food places.

What did the leadership of this community do with the money that they already had? They are bemoaning the fact that they will lose redevelopment money but what happened to the funds prior to this?

Since they squandered the funds in the past I will not support a raise in water and sewer rates and I encourage others to oppose the increase as well.

URGENT PLANNING MEETING

URGENT PLANNING MEETING
Thursday, April 19, 2012, 6:00 p.m.
Teamster Local 63 Hall
379 W. Valley Blvd.,
Rialto, CA  92376
Dear friends and neighbors:
Please come to an urgent meeting to help make plans for stopping the outrageous water and sewer rate hikes recently approved by the Rialto City Council. …
As you know, the Council voted on March 27 to impose huge water and sewer rate hikes on you and your neighbors, and to saddle ratepayers with an outrageous 30-year contract for American Water Company to run the City’s water system. Rialto citizens can block these unfair rate hikes, but there is no time to lose!
We need to collect thousands of signatures in Rialto over the next few weeks. This urgent planning meeting will take place on Thursday, April 19, at 6:00 p.m., at the Teamsters Local 63 Hall, 379 W. Valley Blvd., Rialto, CA  92376.
We will have the necessary campaign materials at the meeting. We will also provide pizza and soft drinks.
Thank you for your continuing support.
We look forward to seeing you at this important meeting.
Sincerely,
Mark Brooks
Stop Rialto Water Rate Hikes!

Rialto City Council Meeting 4-10-12

Pictured Below : was the representative from the county child abuse division Rialto had 1,285 reports of child abuse 10% were found to be true.

 

 

 

 

So the first meeting after the meeting where Rialto’s Water and Waste Water systems were sold down the river to American (German) Water. Lets just say I learned a little more about the RUA (Rialto Utility association) and it wasnt good.

First order of business was to raise your fines for late payment of water and waste water bills. Did you know that there is a 20% rate reduction for Seniors 65 years of age and older and Very Low Income residents. You qualify for the rate reduction if you fall into one of the following (this is gross before taxes):

  • 1 in household – 23,000 yearly income.
  • 2 in household – 26,000 yearly income.
  • 3 in household – 30,000 yearly income.
  • 4 in household – 33,350 yearly income.
  • 5 in household – 36,050 yearly income.

How do they pay for this program? With the 1.5% fine you pay if you pay your bill late. Now for some reason staff’s recommendation was to raise the rate to 10% because of the increase in water rates and also to fall more in line with other cities that charge 20-30%. They are operating under the assumption that more people will apply for the discount with the increase in rates.

One problem with this, why would more people qualify if it’s based on their income and not overall financial burden? Maybe because they are horrible at publishing what this city has to offer it residents, but that’s it. This is a hidden tax increase because the unused portion goes into the general fund so the city can allocate where the money goes.

So what did our elected officials have to say on the issue?

Mr. Ed Scott had an issue with the fact that it rolled over into the general fund but still voted for it.

Mrs. Deborah Robertson was wondering if it should be at 7-8% based on the reason staff was making the recommendation.

Mr. Ed Palmer was fine with the full 10% because we need to keep up with the jones even if it was un-nessicary we should feel good because we don’t pay 20% yet.

Mrs. Grace Vargas agreed with staff on the increase.

Mr. Joe Baca Jr. was also fine with the full 10%.

The way to get Mrs. Robertson to vote for it was to allow the income levels to be increased from Very Low to Low Income residents which follows as:

  • 1 in household – 30,000 yearly income.
  • 2 in household – 33,000 yearly income.
  • 3 in household – 37,000 yearly income.
  • 4 in household – 40,350 yearly income.
  • 5 in household – 43,050 yearly income.

So with this yes you should see an increase in enrollment if they were ever going to tell anyone. This passed with a 5-0 vote.

Next was the total amount the city paid to MDI Media for the development and implementation of community outreach sources (the sale of our utility) $15,000 was set aside and grand total came out to $66,205. Does anyone think that we received our moneys worth? For that kind of money I would have liked to see all the bids from all companies in some type of online format. Passed 5-0.

Next was the changing of the company that handles the street sweeping we reduced the times to once a month instead of twice and we low balled it so don’t expect to get any real street sweeping done anymore. Passed with a 4-1 Mrs Robertson voted no because she didn’t believe the new contractor would be able to fulfill the contract at the bid rate (she is right BTW). Want to know the street sweeping schedule? You can request a map at Public Works.

Next was the realization that we still are responsible for certain things in the waste water system and their not cheap so far 1.7 Million has been spent on one piece of equipment. Council added to throw another 112,900 at it. Vote 5-0.

Now before we leave the water issue for this post let me tell you how out of touch our city government (excluding Joe Baca Jr) is with the residents. Ed Palmer stated at the council meeting that in the 2 weeks after the vote to sell our water interests to German Water he recived 30-50 calls & emails supporting the water deal? He never stated if these were residents, how many were unions or workers of American Water he just took it as there are only 30-50 people living in Rialto and they all want it so it’s a good deal, really?

Im a firm believer that our current council is well planted in fantasy land and either don’t know or care about what the tax payers want. Either way its wrong and borderline criminal. They all think that another Walgreens (Pepper & Foothill), adding a Circle K store to the 76 station (Foothill & Riverside), a new repair shop on foothill, more Dollar General stores (location unknown) that Rialto is making serious economic progress forward. Walgreens and Discount stores in Rialto are just not safe, Rialto PD is not able to handle the stores and crime we have now, I can’t even shop in this city without being robbed or having shady subjects approach me and my wife. People sit on the curbs in our neighborhoods drinking and acting crazy, drugs all over, gangs control massive sections of the city, robberies and petty thefts, stolen cars, cars broken into and homes broken into. Read the paper or watch the news a lot crimes comited in the recent months in Southern Ca are traced back to Rialto. Brian Stow beating, gang injunction, massive crack raid, RIALTO: Suspended officer charged with making criminal threats.

Your council wants to sell your water interest for 30 million in payoffs, they are all old and wont be around to see this water contract expire. They say they need the 30 million to replace RDA funds attract development. What happens when that money is gone? What are they going to sell next?

What scarier is they are going to attend the big retail shopping center conference in Las Vegas in the later part of May to represent our city in attracting new business. What we need is a pimp to go with them and every time they talk to someone pitching a discount mall, liquor store, medical marijuana store, some type of dollar store or we will re-sell you the stereo equipment we just stole from your vehical store the pimp would slap them and redirect them to a more favorable option one WE THE PEOPLE would like to shop at.

So lets email our council and mayor and let them know what 80 people tried to tell them 2 meetings ago. No to German Water and Please bring REAL development to Rialto. Below are their contact numbers and email:

Ed Palmer – epalmer@rialtoca.gov, Epalmeratlaw@sbcglobal.net 909-874-2103 & 909-820-2518

Ed Scott – scotte@rialtoca.gov 909-820-2586 & 909-875-3717

Joe Baca Jr. – bacaj@rialtoca.gov 909-820-2509

Deborah Robertson – robertsond@rialtoca.gov 909-644-8520

Grace Vargas –  vargasg@rialtoca.gov 909-820-2520

Amahad Anasari (Public Works) – aansari@rialtoca.gov 909-421-4999

Mike Story (City Administrator) – administration@rialtoca.gov 909-820-2528

2 side notes State still controls some interest in the In & Out site thus that project is in limbo.

June 15th the new Circle K is set to open on Riverside & Foothill.

Also there will be an open house coming soon for the new fire station on North Riverside Ave.

Conversation with In & Out

Here are the facts:

San Bernardino and Highland have new In & Out Burger locations.

Highland didn’t use any development funds to get that project done. (per the sun paper)

Our City Manager in Rialto says that there is little hope for an In & Out here. ( Stated at the Area 1 command meeting in January)

Listening to council and our mayor use the Dias and Sun Newspaper as their mouth piece stating that without the selling off of our utility and getting paid off they can’t attract new business.

I decided to give In & Out a call and I spoke to the Project Manager Ken. Ken said that they were days away from signing the deal and getting started when Governor Brown killed the RDA’s. He said that they are still committed to a In & Out restaurant here in Rialto and that they have done all of their due diligence paid all their fees and are waiting on the city to re-draft the contract from the RDA to the City.

So when your city council & mayor tell you that unless we sell off our water interests to a German Company and raise your rates over 100% and guarantee German water 30% a year profits no new business will come here know that they are full of it.

The real issue is that the people who council is playing to is big developers like:

Lewis Properties developers of the proposed Target shopping center where the airport now resides. The city has already thrown millions of dollars at this project to no where in environmental and Economic Studies, removing tenants from airport and re building streets. Now Council wants you to dump most of their 30 million dollar payoff from German Water into this project, a project lewis homes ran screaming from once because of the housing crash then with the loss of RDA’s. The only reason they are back in because there is now the possibility of more money 30 million worth.

Ron Pharris developer of the proposed Lytle Creek development project and the main reason that the water system needs to be up graded NOW. You see Ron wants to add a massive home community up above the 210 freeway, but he doesnt want to wait or pay to have the system upgraded he wats you to. Read all about it at http://inlandpolitics.com/blog/2010/05/27/sbsun-lytle-creek-ranch-development-in-rialto-facing-opposition/

SUPER WALMART someone is fighting for a Super Wal-Mart I don’t know who but they are. To make that project happen WE the RESIDENTS must pay to have infrastructure upgraded.

Lowes in old Wal-Mart spot ( One we get that Super Wal-Mart yuck) Lowes couldn’t pull off a successful store in North San Bernardino where more wealthy people live, what makes them think it will work here.

Unions AFL-CIO, Pipe Layers or Metal Workers they will sell your water company down the road to these select few to have the veiled promise of jobs and heck German Water can afford it remember the city has promised them 30% profits every year on top of expensive labor.

So don’t listen to what council IS SAYING listen to what their not saying.
