A message to Danville Town Council is now planned to ensure R-7A appropriations support Alamoís majority.
The message will ask for removal of Hap Magee Ranch Park and the SRV YMCA properties from Alamo and R-7A boundaries. The purpose is to end R-7A support for a park that is unused by Alamo residents and is specifically an exceptional cost to R-7A parcel taxes without any accountability until after-the-fact of billing privately approved by county and Danville personnel. Discovered county documents illustrate that the Town of Danville has specifically withheld information about costs from Alamo residents whose R-7A parcel taxes are used without regard.
Clearly, Alamo Improvement Association community affairs committee needs to take an in-depth look at closed-door R-7A cost approvals that have little or nothing resulting in services to Alamo residents. It seems CCC-PW and the Town of Danville have assumed full rights to R-7A appropriations without any audit by and for R-7A tax payers. More clearly, the intention to amplify requests for study and audit by Contra Costa County Civil Grand Jury has become part of a sequence of steps Alamo neighborhoods will take along with requests for R-7A audits to State legislative committees and Governorís committees that oversee local governments.
