Tuesday night the City Council had a lively discussion over an amendment to the Lake Oroville settlement agreement and intra-council trust issues.
The council voted 5-1 to make an amendment to the settlement agreement signed in 2006, taking away the mayor’s authority to sign off on funds going to the supplemental benefits fund, or SBF, and requiring it come to the collective council before any action is taken. Mayor Linda Dahlmeier voted against the motion and Councilor Scott Thomson abstained.
Councilor Marlene Del Rosario said she also took issue with the mayor not reporting back from a meeting with DWR.
“It’s time for this to end. What we want is transparency,” she said.
