What a difference Law and Order culture makes: RSM Vs Coto de Caza

What a difference Law and Order culture makes: RSM Vs Coto de Caza

October 27, 2006

The October 27, 2006 issue of the OCR article on Concerned residents request traffic control at Tijeras Creek. Describes how after two accidents around Tijeras creek, RSM residents to take action and spoke during a city council meeting: “ The City Council took immediate action and voted 4-0, with Councilman Neil Blais absent, to add more law enforcement in the suggested neighborhoods and to provide a temporary three-way stop sign on Valeroso and Via Villario while city staff scans the area for alternatives that will help alleviate the problems” – OCR Oct 27, 2006

What has the Coto de Caza board of directors done after two traffic fatalities?

First, residents coerce the board into bringing back the CHP for proactive patrol immediately after the first fatality in December of 2005 – this is after the board fired the CHP without a suitable alternative.

Soon thereafter, the Coto de Caza board of directors let road certification expire so no law enforcement agency can do pro-active traffic patrol in this private community. They blame this fiasco on a missing tickler file allegedly in the possession of the property manager fired six years earlier!

Then the president of the board of directors calls CHP management extortionists, during an open board of directors meeting.

Then fire a volunteer public safety chairperson for refusing to place the board of directors private agenda (of turning Coto into a city), ahead of public safety.

As recent as a few days ago, the property manager informs the CHP management that the Coto de Caza board of directs has found funds “to give the gardener and the private security guards a raise, but does not seem to find the finds to renew the CHP contract”

And to top it off, in the November 2006 President’s letter, the president of the Coto de Caza board of directors continues the verbal attack against the CHP!
