CPCSD acts on parks, pool, legal beagles

It was another night of teeth gnashing at the board meeting of the Cameron Park Community Services District last Wednesday as barbs were traded in between staff reports and commendations.

Supervisor Ray Nutting received a commendation for his help with the weed abatement program and Rotary was thanked for providing new park signs.

General Manager Mary Cahill reported that the slide for the pool is almost complete and staff prepared a new schedule of swim fees. However, questions about the price structure sent the schedule back to committee for further discussion. The schedule will be brought back for approval in March.

Negotiations with the Golden Nugget Quilt Group are ongoing as staff and the quilting group work on an agreement to provide mutual indemnification for use of the community center building.

Contracts with three different law groups were approved despite objections to one of them — the Beigler Law Firm. Residents claimed that Beigler talked the district into an ill-conceived writ against the county and it had cost the district several hundred thousand dollars.

They wanted to know why the board wanted to continue doing business with him. Members of the board responded by saying that the lawyer only did what previous board members had requested and the contracts in question were not  retainers but rather agreements covering what CPCSD would pay on an hourly basis if legal services were required. A report on the outcome of pending litigation between the county and CPCSD regarding the writ is expected at the next meeting.

A resident reported that he smelled marijuana being smoked at the Skate Park. Board members discussed the possibility of installing a video surveillance system at the park to control the problem.
