First round of appeals on Redevelopment ROPS- Riverside’s costs confirmed by the State DOF!!


Our great team of staff from Development and the City Attorney’s Office worked diligently to put together an excellent appeal letter to the Department of Finance’s (DOF) first round determination that some of our debts were not “enforceable obligations” - that letter, and a rather lengthy telephone call to DOF, created the first round of results that we were looking for; namely, confirmation that actions taken on behalf of our former Redevelopment Agency did meet the letter and spirit of the law.  I am proud of our staff and thankful that we have taken a “lead” position on appealing these matters with DOF.  Next round- those “interfund/interagency” loans!
