Replay Schedules For Feet To The Fire Forum and Council Meeting

The streaming video of the Feet To The Fire Forum on Monday, April 11, 2011is now available on streaming video, HERE. You can also watch it on CMTV, Channel 24 on Time Warner Cable and Channel 99 on ATT Uverse. Here's the replay schedule:

I think you'll be entertained by the discussions, the banter and the flat-out yelling that went on up on the stage that evening.

If you're interested in the replay schedule for the City Council meeting from Tuesday, April 12, 2011, you can view it HERE or on television on this schedule:

If you don't wish to watch it straight through, grab the scroll bar on the streaming video to just before 12:00 and watch Steve Mensinger deliver his opinion of "outsiders". Also of interest will be Jim Righeimer's suggestion that we permit sale and ignition of fireworks for the entire Independence Day holiday weekend, beginning on Thursday evening.

Anonymous Costa Mesa Employee and Costa Mesa Resident said...

Found out some disturbing news: A friend put out flowers for Huy Pham at City Hall and two Council Members came to City Hall (M and M) and guess what? An hour after the flowers were placed they were thrown in the trash can. The person who put them out confirmed with maintenance that they did not toss them- so it leads me to believe... That either M or M put them in the trash. Sad and disrespectful. Yes, we move on but this daily bashing of our moral is unacceptable. Geoff- I knew this is not on topic; however, I feel the public should know the employees can't put flowers out. Several employees have emailed Tom Hatch about the policy and he will not answer just instructs Maintenace (or when not around CC personally)to remove them.

I seriously doubt that anyone would be crude enough to remove those flowers in an act of disrespect. More than likely they were removed because Costa Mesa has a law against littering (that's assuming that someone connected with the city removed those flowers).

On the other hand, someone from the union may have done so in an effort to evoke the kind of response you made.

Are you suggesting that flowers should continue to be placed on the grounds for the next 30 or 40 years? At some point it needs to stop so that life can get back to normal. It is my understanding that some kind of permanent memorial is being put in place to honor Mr. Pham.

So Jim wants fireworks for the long weekend, does he care what we the tax payers want???? It is bad enough having to live in a war zone for one nite. Fireworks go off for several weeks before and after the holiday. The difficulty in arresting the offenders is determining exactly where they are being fired. With fewer police coverage, imagine a whole weekend. Fireworks are dangerous, a fire hazard and should be only ignited in a professional setting. Times have changed, our demographics have changed and our housing is more clusered together.

Anonymous What is wrong with the CITY COUNCIL?????? said...

Are you from Costa Mesa? Are you aware you can put flowers on public property (like streets or sidewalks) for years at a time. When someone has an accident there HAS NEVER been a policy for removing the memorial. Let's see the flowers were placed, one hour later they were gone, two people pulled into City Hall, Mensinger and Monahan and the flowers are gone. Do you not have any empathy Lady? Our friend Huy died to place a flower because we feel bad, because everytime we come to work we are crying, our friend died at work because he was upset like we are because we are upset.. hurts whom?? YOU? One in God's name is wrong with putting out a few flowers? Beth, your honorable CC had instructions to move flowers ONE DAY AFTER HUY PASSED, not years. No one has said a word for fear. BUT, this is morally wrong and it is PURE EVIL. You want to blame someone - or don't believe it- then I challenge you to ask the City Council or Tom Hatch what the policy is. I don't think a month after MY FRIEND committed suicide at my place of employement if it is TOO much to ask to place flowers. What is wrong with you?

Costa Mesa Employee: Your accusation is lacking in the detail necessary to make an informed opinion or decision. Please provide information such as the day and approximate time the flowers were placed. The name of the person who is making this accusation would be helpful, too. Without that, yours is an anonymous post of a groundless accusation. We need facts, not innuendo - on this and on every issue facing the city.

Flowers placed:

April 22nd Friday at approx. 10:15 a.m.

Mensinger and Monaham park in their parking spaces

Flowers thrown in trash

Flowers noticed in trash at 11:30 a.m.

Person reporting will not reveal name because of fear.

If you think these are ungrounded accusations- then call City Hall speak with Tom Hatch or his assistnce and ask directly of City Council instructions. These are not accusations- these are facts.

Since two days after the funeral of Huy Pham (less than a month ago) flowers can't be placed to honor him. Again, ask CEO Tom Hatch what the policy is. Transparent? MY @ss.

It is my understanding that some kind of a permanent memorial will be placed somewhere on the City Hall campus for Huy Pham.
