Once again, our council rolls over and Fremont taxpayers pick up the tab

"In 2005, the city council approved an executive assistance housing loan in the amount of $580,698 for the then newly hired Fire Chief Bruce Martin to buy the townhouse as his main residence, in exchange for his commitment to live in the city. The loan provided for repayment at the time employment terminated, city staff reports said.""Martin retired in June 2012. However, due to the economic recession starting in 2008, the property lost value and was appraised at less than the balance of the…See More

Spent our money/fund appropriately

The fund/our tax money should be spent correctly.  I just don't know where to reflect these:1. Long time ago the Walnut Ave. between FoodMaxx & Target was repaved and a turnabout was "created" outside of the apartment, but I don't think it's necessary because the surface was not as bad as Paseo Padre Pkwy (between Thornton Ave and Peralta Blvd).  Is it really necessary to make that turnabout?  It's waste of our gas to make such turn.  Dividers with plants that need water!!2.  The corner of…See More

Dust issues at Patterson Ranch development

I live opposite the new Patterson Ranch development, and there has been excessive dust raining down on us from construction activities there. I've sent email to the city government, but the response so far has not been satisfactory. There is supposedly a dust plan in place for the development, but I have not received it yetThere seem to be a few issues that are prominent to me:* The land itself was farmed for many decades with fertilizers, and the soil was contaminated with potential…See More

Sunnyvale School gets a Turn-over...

Not sure if folks have followed this story...change is inevitable but progress is not....or so it goes. Wondering if FUSD is open to discourse....Its not a bad practice to rejuvenate the environment by reassignments. Kids will adapt better than parents., and there is something new about change.... …See More

Ask Fremont City Council to consider water, schools, traffic, and open space when approving new development

There are large new developments planned for Sequoia/Paseo Padre, Walnut and Shinn Streets in downtown, the Niles gateway, Mission Boulevard, Osgood Road, Sabercat, Ardenwood, and of course the 4000 units planned for Warm…See More
