Is Jimmy Fitzy Out At The Sanitary District?

THE EXCREMENT HIT THE OSCILLATING UNIT
As anticipated, based on a review of previous meeting minutes, the regular monthly meeting of the Costa Mesa Sanitary District found itself, figuratively, knee-deep in effluent Thursday night.

JIMMY FITZY "INCOMPATIBLE"?
The issue that
prompts my characterization is the presentation of a legal opinion - the second such opinion - that District Board Member Jim Fitzpatrick's position on the Board has been determined to be "incompatible" with his position as a Costa Mesa Planning Commissioner.

SPARKS A'FLYIN'...

Although I was no
t present, reports from the scene indicate that the discussion on this issue was, to put it mildly, animated. Apparently Fitzpatrick is not happy with this decision because it could cause him to lose his position on the Sanitary District Board. I'm told that, at one point, Director Art Perry asked Fitzpatrick if he was going to resign. Fitzpatrick did not respond.

SPECIAL MEETING TUESDAY

Next Tuesday, February 28, 2012, at 9:00 a.m. the Sanitary District Board will meet in a Special Meeting - read the agenda HERE - at which, following public comments, they will immediately adjourn to a Closed Session to "discuss initiation of litigation (Quo Warranto to determine if Director Fitzpatrick's appointment to the Costa Mesa Planning Commission caused a vacation of his office as Director as being incompatible/conflict of interest) (Gov. Code 54956.9)"

EXPENSIVE AND LEN
GTHY LITIGATION
It is my understanding that such litigation could cost upwards of $40,000 and could take months to resolve. I also understand that it is possible to request an opinion directly from the State Attorney General on the issue of incompatibility.




NOT A NEW ISSUE
This is not a new issu
e. It actually began last summer and has dragged on until the present time, coming to a full boil within the past three months. The issue was also addressed when Fitzpatrick, then a first-term Planning Commissioner, decided to run for a seat on the Sanitary District Board. Mayor Gary Monahan, in a city council meeting during open session, gave his view that Fitzpatrick holding both seats was not "incompatible" because he, as a sitting council member, also recently held a seat on the Sanitary District Board.

DIFFERENT RULES FOR COUNCILMEN
However, it is my understanding that the prohibition that applies to Fitzpatrick would NOT apply to a council member, based on a section of the State Health and Safety Code which exempted Monahan from that prohibition.



SO MANY QUESTIONS...

So, Tuesday's meeting
will be very interesting. Will the Sanitary District Board choose to move forward with the litigation? Will Fitzpatrick fight that decision and force the expenditure of time and treasure to enforce two legal opinions? Will the Board, following the Closed Session, use item III on the agenda - Reconsider Committee and Other Assignments of Directors - to strip Fitzpatrick of any committee assignments and, de facto, render his participation on the board moot until the legal issue is resolved? Will Fitzpatrick resign from the Sanitary District Board? Or, will he resign from his Planning Commission seat? There certainly is plenty to think about over this weekend, and that doesn't even consider the council meeting on Tuesday evening that will deal with the Homeless Task Force Report and the Mid-year Budget Review. Yikes!

SERNA WILL REPORT NEXT WEEK

Daily Pilot Ace Reporter Joe Serna was present and will have a long story on this meeting, and the meeting Tuesday, early in the week. I look forward to his first-person account of the "festivities".

I read this a couple of days ago in the DP:

http://articles.dailypilot.com/2012-02-22/news/tn-dpt-0223-fitzpatrick-20120221_1_board-members-planning-commission-costa-mesa-sanitary-district

It does appear that Art Perry is pushing this forward. From the article:
Director Perry stated he feels it is incumbent upon the board to receive district counsel advice on this subject, and he does not care what it costs.

The story also states:
However, the district's counsel, Alan Burns, had already voiced an opinion on the matter. In a 2010 memo to the board, he wrote that Fitzpatrick's seat on the Planning Commission could pose problems, though there didn't seem to be any established precedent.

It seems it is a gray area and Perry wants a definitive answer.

Of course this came up with Katrina Foley and her position on the City Council and School Board.

Should be interesting to see how it shakes out!

Intrigue, lies, and verbatim minutes, oh my! So Arlene S. loses her seat to Fitz last election. This causes a domino effect for her and because she is not an elected official anymore or a member of a special district in any capacity, she loses a multitude of positions, especially the gem of her LAFCO seat. Leece places an "emergency" item on council agenda immediately, offering to give up her Vector Control, special district seat, and have Arlene S. appointed to it, thus saving all of Arlene's other seats in special district organizations and LAFCO. Council sees through it, Arlene herself doesn't even go to the council meeting, Council says if Wendy wants to resign early then they should have the Vector control seat open to more than just Arlene. Item dies. Fitzy gets on Sanitary and starts asking questions of the long standing no bid contracts. The rest of the Board does not like it. They want to appoint Arlene back to the position so they need to get rid of Fitzy. Normally, it would be Arlene who should use HER money but Board wants this so bad they are willing to use taxpayer money to get an opinion from AG and superior court. Director Art Perry even states he does not care what it costs! (of taxpayer money). If they could appoint Arlene maybe they won't have to face her in upcoming election is an added bonus for them. Perry ran for Water Board last election as a sitting Sanitary Board member even though told that was incompatible situation should he win. Fairly warned be thee sez I: this will not bode well for the 3 Sanitary Directors up for election. Mailers are already being designed. Let Arlene do this, not taxpayer money.

Mike M.. My first thoughts too, after I stopped laughing. Of course that was preceded by losing my lunch.

Serna has shown himself and I sure do not think it's ACE reporting.

To checkyoursix... I guess Arlene has learned from others. Wasn't it Mansoor who relinquished his Mayorship to Bever to help Bever get re-elected. Then once that happened he worked it to get back the mayorship.

I am sure you were critical of that too!

Both sides and all sides play these slimy games. It's why many are simply disgusted with politics.

Incidentally, I was just reading Jimmy Fitzy's latest column in the Newport Independent, where he writes about "Green" stuff. Here's his second paragraph:

"This is a must-attend for any corporation that utilizes in-house teams and funding to establish deal flow to ensure critical technology and core competencies are enhanced by acquiring innovation, establishing competitive advantage, investing in the incubation of potential disruptive technologies, or a neverending search to identify that special ingredient to leapfrog competitors."

Ah, Jimmy, my lad - always the master of gobbledegook and the indecypherable buzz word.

to disgusted: making Bever mayor was a brilliant move so he could run as a sitting mayor, done all the time and it involves no taxpayer money and all involved are elected officials.
This case involves taxpayer money on a question that does not have to be answered unless an aggrieved, losing candidate wants to use their own money to get AG and Superior Court opinion. Apples to Oranges, Too Fast.

take your thoughts out of the equation and consider the facts: A legal opinion was rendered at the time Fitzpatrick was elected to both seats which stated holding both seats could pose problems. Fitzpatrick choose to accept both seats anyway. Board members attend a training seminar, specifically to educate board members about issues board members should be aware of and are told of a similar case deemed to be a conflict of interest. The board decides to investigate the issue further seeking a legal opinion from an expert in the field. The expert agrees the offices are incompatible. If Fitzpatrick gives up his seat there is no more issue. No more money spent. These are the facts. Fitzpatrick is the one who chose to accept both seats causing a conflict, not the other sanitary district board members, not Arlene. If the board does appoint Arlene then you should voice your opinion about that at that time, but the two are separate matters.

Sounds like you're Ok with political underhanded maneuvers as long as they don't cost taxpayers.
I am not. I believe in integrity even for our elected officials. No make that especially for our elected officials.

Yes, probably unreasonable but that's my belief.

Regarding cost in this. What would happen if a legal conflict arouse based on a vote made by Fitz. Maybe Art Perry is trying to save the district money from a bad lawsuit.

Fitzy is not only incompatible with this office, he is incompatible with most people! This may explain why he can't get a real job, much less keep one. Fitzy uses his big mouth (along with smoke and mirrors) to deceive Costa Mesa into believing that HE is the one who can reduce trash rates. Even if the evergreen contract goes out for bid, the trash rates WILL NOT be going down. Jim Fitzpatrick is a colossal liar, a spin doctor, and a joke.

Let’s talk about taxpayer money. Jim Fitzpatrick has no problem spending your money on things he wants like expanding the CMSD boardroom to make room for a dais $150,000! A branding consultant $30,000! Locking trash cans $20,000! A zero waste consultant $30,000! Litigation when you know you are wrong $40,000!

Fitzpatrick is spending money taking this fight to court, not Art Perry. Fitzy doesn’t just ask questions at meetings, he stomps his feet and has tantrums when he doesn’t get his way. It’s obvious he antagonizes the other Board members just so he can go out and disparage them in public. Well, look who’s trying to play dirty politics as we get closer to an election. What a surprise! Don’t be fooled CM and get your facts straight checkyoursix, Arlene would be a giant step up from slimy Jim Fitzpatrick. Actually, anyone would be.

Sadie seems to have inside information.

With such low attendance , how would he / she know such info.

What is worse is he she is wrong. Flat out wrong.

$150 k never spent on dias. Building is way to small.

$30k on branding consultant never happened.

It is not $20k on Lockable containers, an industry pilot, the net is much less when you compare the standard container vs Lockable.

The $30k zero waste consultant has not been spent, and will not without a vote of the Board.

I budget item will be spent on a rate payer survey, by unanimous vote of the Board.

You really need to ask your informant to get the facts straight.

Or, you can contact Jimmy Fitzy. He was very helpful in explaining the false facts presented.

He also gave me info that the Board refuses to pit an evergreen trash contract out to bid. And that the Board is considering a 20 year trash contract.

He offered to buy me coffee.

Hmm. Someone's taken over checkyoursix. Very different writing style, now very much like rickandjenn and unanimous and a few others. Unless Six has been away at college taking advanced English composition, and decided to totally ape his mentor’s style. Watch late in the day, if the poster still sounds sober, it's probably not the genuine article.

I'd say welcome back Six, we haven't heard form you for a while...but I'd just be saying Hi to the freelance psychologist and his Multiples. Even tho Six and I usually had different opinions, I missed his posts, so real Six, if you're out there, Hi!

Back on topic…Katrina was forced out of her Council seat even though the situation was similar to Gary holding two seats. She wanted to stay on once she saw how the wind was blowing, but she left gracefully even though she had a legally debatable issue. Locking trash cans! When I saw that on my Sanitary newsletter I thought How frivolous, and I’m going to be paying for this on my property tax bill. Same with remodeling the meeting room. It worked fine. I don’t think the big audiences have yet materialized. Did Jimmy catch a remodeling virus from his buddies on council? Fitzpatrick may need the money, I don’t know, but that’s not a good enough reason to stay on two boards. I want to keep the raises off my tax bill, I need the money too! Until Jim got on, our San board was very conservative. I like Jimmy as a person, but this 2 boards thing always seemed a bit over the line. Do the right thing, Jim. Pick one or the other.

Sadie and Albatross,

That is all well and good, except it os not true.

Anyone can watch Fitz on TV for the Planning Commission. Not the same person you try to paint. And Fitz is the one pushing for transparency with meetings on video.

I checked the minutes and all the "issues" you both refer to were 5-0 votes. Good for Fitz.

However, not so good for the other Good Ole Boys Lions Club members.

Looks like they voted to give themselves Health Benefits. 4-1 vote. Fitz only one to vote no.

No wonder the other Board members are so mad at Fitz.

Albatross, can I take it that you support the over the hill gang and their refusal to break an evergreen contract.

I hear the Board is considering a 209 year Trash contract.

Go Fitz, don't stop

What he forgot to say was, the other, more responsible Directors wouldn't LET it happen. And please, trust me, nobody wants to watch Fitz on TV. Audio recordings for san district meetings are just fine. Oh well, I guess if the egomaniac can't have his dais, a television camera is the next best thing...see the pattern here folks?

Sadie, dear, your inside info seems to be wrong, again, consider the source.

The minutes indicate either those things never happened, or they were a 5-0 Vote.

What was not a 5-0 vote was that the good ole boys gave themselves Health Benefits. Slop tax payers should thank Fitz, he voted against. WOW!

And the good ole boys refuse to end an evergreen trash contract. WOW.

And the Board is considering a 20 year Trash contract? WOW.

Fitz seems to be doing great on the Planning Commission. WOW.

Looks like the good ole boys are trying to spend tax payer money as a way to get him off the Board so the good ole boys can go back to their cushy jobs. WOW

so, Sadie, er, sitting Board member, the claim now is that Fitz is spending this money to take this to court even though the minutes show it is Perry who says he will spend whatever it takes? Fitz does not want to spend taxpayer money for an opinion, it is the Arlene's fiends on the board. If they drop it you can bet Fitz won't be agendizing an item to keep it moving forward. They should allocate monies for an attorney for Fitz and one for them. You can always find two attorneys with two very different views of things. After hearing from two opposing advocates then the Board can consider whether to move forward with tens of thousands of dollars or just Arlene pay for it herself. It looks like we will have quite a multitude of candidates to choose from for Sanitary this election, some good names popped up last week. Ready, fire, aim.

Mike Schaefer and Arlene Schafer are the type of dedicated long time members of our city who care deeply about its future and have given invaluable time to assure that each of us has a city proud to be a citizen of. I personally know them both, have worked with them within our city and respect and admire their true dedication to this city. Wake up citizens, our current council memebers, excluding Wendy, could care less about You and ME and our fine city, they are on a personal agenda as is Fitzy and they will step on and squash anyone, anything in our city, and have a smile on their faces. Thanks Mike, Arlene and Wendy and many other fine, dedicated citizens who speak up and attempt to inform and educate those who seems to have a foggy memory or lack of facts.

Riggy won't just be satisfied changing this city into his own personal vision though a Charter, not when San and Water are their own mini municipalities with employees and pensions, and lots and lots of cash.
There is a reason Fitzy is pushing that agenda ,and Ethan Temianka is gearing up to oust Trudy on Water.

You can either play nice with Fitzy or get picked off one by one........Ask the ex -Parks and Recs commissioners. Fun times ahead.
