You don’t actually think the City of Fullerton is going to buy you a park with all the money they have sucked out of all of you through decades of taxative extortion do you?
Just in time for the “H.E.R.O.” program to rear its ugly head on the agenda where the 4F mafia, Jan Fluoride, Jencurt Fitzpringle, and Doug Chaffeeppoo will be voting for thereby setting up the framework for a “Citywide special assessment district” to help bolster the endless, out of control public employee union pay raises and float the sinking pension ship under the guise of “smart” energy programs and red tape ribbon cutting.
Yes folks, introducing the latest and greatest idea since the FPD handed out the blue shirts and set up the taco truck on Tuesday night at city hall. Introducing the new “parcel tax” to pay off Chevron as they ride up the value on their sand dune wasteland called Coyote Hills. Yes it, to this day, remains an unremediated, unbuildable, unstable, seisimic nightmare riddled with hidden improperly capped oil and gas wells with toxic soil abounding flanked by fire ants, rats and rattlesnakes smack dab on top of a fault line without a drop of water anywhere to be found.
You already gave at the office you say? Haven’t had enough of OC vector control, OC Dept of sanitation, FSD, NOCCD, MWD, or FJUHSD’s catheter into your wallet through their property tax levy party? Get ready for another mainline insertion of another line item without a veto.
You guessed, you, the residents will be picking up the tab. Of course the city doesn’t have the money to buy the land. Hell they don’t even have the money to fix a stinking drinking fountain that has been broken for 2 and 1/2 years over at the ball field at Chapman park.
Yes the 4f council mafia hands out raises and benies and lawsuit settlements in the back room up behind the dais every 1st and 3rd Tuesday afternoon like lolipops on halloween to the unions and the rape victims while you, the taxpayer, are still stuck in traffic. They just don’t have enough left over for the more important things like what they actually exist to procure and maintain, that is crucial infrastructure.
No instead, they ignore the mosquito infested storm drain system, the 300 million in road, sewer and water main repairs while they try to ram through the job killing ten story tilt up nightmare called the DCCP and the WiFi prison called the College Town nuthouse over on Nutwood to boost revenues just enough to keep the unfunded pension liabilities from affecting Foolerton’s credit rating while you all stay mesmerized by a parade, and a fireworks show.
You want a walk in the park, well, haha, its gonna cost you gang. Chevron will get their money the old fashioned way and you will hand yours over the oldest way in the book: at levy point.
Yes Coyote Hills is beautiful and yes because it is not safe for any sort of development whatsoever in its present form, it should remain as open space. Remember, parks don’t make any money for the city unless they pack them full of cell towers. Development does and as long as we have a Flory, Fitzgerald and Chaffee council majority that exists to protect and serve the 700 city employees and not the 140,000 residents, we will have the devil in the details shoved up our backsides till the cows come home folks. More to come on this gang, so stay tuned.
