That the City Council pass the Resolution supporting our neighbor San Clemente and Congressman Levin’s call for an independent investigation of the TCA to determine that this public agency has or has not misused public funds
The City of Dana Point is reporting that “for fiscal year 2017-2018, Dana Point collected and paid to TCA over $620,000. Over the life of the TCA, it is estimated that Dana Point has collected and paid TCA approximately $6,000,000.”
The City of San Clemente, a TCA JPA member city, has raised concerns about TCA’s financial situation and potential misuse of public funds for the past few years. On June 20, 2018, the City of San Clemente sued the TCA for failing to comply with the California Public Records Act, which if proven true, violates California law. San Clemente’s lawsuit contends that documents will show TCA has spent more money on lobbyists over the past twenty years than it has spent building new roads during the same period.
On March 11, 2019, the Los Angeles Times published an article detailing various agreements between the TCA and consultants, fees paid by TCA pursuant to these agreements as well as billing records reviewed by the Times.
