Looks like they found the smoking gun from 2003. A document describing the moment in time when Pacifica discovered inter-fund lending. Of course, the thrill of finding the smoking gun is not so thrilling when you realize inter-fund loans are still how Pacifica survives. The faces change but the behavior doesn't. How about an accurate, understandable number for the deficit? Thrilling.

That was on Cecila Quick Quak's watch. She was told find a way to get us money. She changed the sewer lateral rules, she also changed maintenance of sidewalks. Changed the ways of setting up the sewer tax. She also had the SEC breathing down there backs watching them in the bond sales, she also set up this daisy chain of inter-fund loans.

That was under the watch of Vreeland, Lancelle, deJarnutt, Digre and their puppetmasters.

Nothing has changed. Not one damn thing of any importance has changed. Blinders on.

1258 Because she's got mad library building skills? Really, her contract is not unusual. Council seems very pleased with her (is that good or bad), she's here, she isn't yet covered with crap, why rock the boat? She'll move on in a couple or three years.

Read the minutes from 6/30/03 mentioned in agenda item 11b and you get a sense that Joe Tanner
let the genie out of the bottle with inter-fund loans. Tanner was very capable and this stuff was probably safe in his hands, but he was soon gone. We had an excellent finance director for a few years longer and then she was gone. That left people in charge who either were in over their heads or had reason and power to keep controls very lax. Meanwhile we go from using these loans for non-essentials like the beach to essentials like pension bond obligations. The genie isn't going back in the bottle.

Kudos to the Pacifica police department. Two officers were giving out tickets this afternoon right at city council chambers. No parking Monday's after 3 pm.

Dollars into the city bank account.
