Letter: In Response to Jim Clark’s column ‘How to handle public comments’ (opinion)
September 11, 2018
In response to Jim Clark's column in the Tahoe Daily Tribune Aug. 17 on "How to handle public comments."
Paying for our comments. What a novel idea. Jim Clark suggested: "How about assessing public comment $1 for the first minute, $5 for the next two minutes …" Would that guarantee answers?
I'd gladly pay $6 to know where over $700,000, which was stated to be spent on lining the waste water pond, was actually spent. The pond is not lined.
How about another $6 to learn why Chairperson Wong committed $7.5 million (yes, that's millions of our money) in a letter to the Tahoe Transportation District to assist in acquiring a grant, WITHOUT board approval.
And, how about another $6 to understand why the amusement activities in the Diamond Peak master plan are designed on leased land in which the lease does not allow them.
Get the answers and I'll write the $18 check to whoever you designate, or "We the People" since that is how IVGID settled their last debt.

If our concerns were addressed in a timely manner, we would not have to bring them up repeatedly, which in Chuck Otto's opinion, is considered to be harassment.
