It appears that the staff, headed by City Manager Warne, has a new way of doing business. I usually read the staff reports to prepare for the upcoming council meeting and to inform the readers of what’s on the menu for the night. Well, I was surprised on May 8th, 2012, when Matt McCleary of RSG, presented an “informational” session. The session was in regards to the Department of Finance’s denial of Project Phoenix and it was not listed on the Agenda, nor was it in the staff report. While some people thought it might be a violation of the Brown Act, it wasn’t. I think the “informational” session was in response to the amount of information that Cactus Thorns was/is putting out regarding the letters denying Project Phoenix.
It would seem that someone on the city staff has discovered a new way to contain what information needs to go in the staff report. This week, I read the staff report, and for some reason thought to check the agenda. Listed under Awards, Presentations, and Proclamations: Review of Pertinent Correspondence Between the Successor Agency Staff and San Bernardino County, Department of Finance and League of California Cities. Yet, there is nothing in the staff report. There may not be anything wrong with this, but it is not advisable policy to appear to be “managing” the information.
This can’t look right to the City Councilmen. This information is not in the staff report, therefore they do not have the information, either. This is a trend that I would like to see changed. Our City Councilmen should not be blindsided by “Pertinent Information”. They deserve better than that and so do we.
