THE MORONGO VALLEY COMMUNITY SERVICES MEETING THAT WASN’T

After a very controversial firing last week of the popular manager of the Morongo Valley CSD, the Board’s regular scheduled meeting was set for last night and citizens were ready to express their disapproval of the action, some even considering recall. The room was packed, but, in an amazing coincidence, there were not enough Directors in attendance to hold a meeting. Reporter Mike Lipsitz was there and files this report…
Tension was high last night as more than 80 Morongo Valley residents crowded into the Covington Park Multipurpose Room for the Community Service District meeting. They’d come wanting answers in the wake of the board’s controversial vote of “no confidence” and abrupt departure of Meg Foley, the very popular Morongo Valley CSD Manager, but it was not to be. A few minutes after 7 p.m. Board President Chuck Osborne apologetically announced that there was to be no meeting, that for the first time in his 16 years of District business meetings, lack of a quorum meant that no business could be transacted. Osborne and Director Johnny Talbert were the only two of the five-member board in attendance. Director Mike Frances had checked into a Loma Linda Hospital with chest pains earlier in the afternoon; Director Glen Sheppard was vacationing in Mexico; and Director Richard Brewer resigned his post only last week. Osborne promised the disappointed hoard that the meeting would be rescheduled as soon as possible.
