Fisher says "NO" to WE COUNT

The Westmoreland Supervisors’ regular monthly meeting will begin at 9:30 next Monday morning in the George D. English Building’s Circuit Court meeting place. The July 13 session’s agenda will be made available to the county’s public later this week.
The group of county residents known as WE COUNT or the Westmoreland County Citizens for Change was given a 15-minute agenda spot in May and June and WE COUNT’s Rose Goodloe and Robert Quinn recently requested a place on the Supervisors July 2009 agenda. No deal.
Board of Supervisors Chairman Darryl Fisher responded to the request on July 6. “I am in receipt of your correspondence dated June 27, 2009 on behalf of Westmoreland County Citizens for Change (WE COUNT) requesting to be placed on the agenda for the July 13, 2009 meeting of the Board of Supervisors to ‘discuss aspects of the O’Gara Group’s potential or actual purchase of county property and the involvement of DynCorp in the process,” Fisher wrote.

“As a result of the lawsuit filed against the Board of Supervisors and on advice of our legal counsel, the Board of Supervisors will not be entering into any discussion at our Board meetings with respect to the proposed O’Gara project.
“Therefore, at this time, the Board will be unable to accommodate your request to be placed on the agenda. As always, individuals are welcome to present their views during the public comment period or by written correspondence to members of the Board.
“Thank you for your understanding of this matter.”
A complaint filed in Westmoreland Circuit Court by Norma and Dennis McGuire alleged that County Administrator Norm Risavi failed to comply with the Freedom of Information Act has been withdrawn, but another suit still pending in that court raising questions about the legality of the January 12, 2009 meeting of the Westmoreland County Industrial Development Authority and Board of Supervisors.
On June 29 The Journal learned that County Attorney Tom Bondurant will represent the Board of Supervisors in Westmoreland Circuit Court. Bondurant professes to have a conflict of interest that caused the Industrial Development Authority to engage its own defense attorney, John Gibney.
Gibney works in the Thompson McMullan law office in Richmond, Virginia and was engaged by the Westmoreland Industrial Development Authority after the Authority returned from its closed session discussion with both Bondurant and Gibney.
On January 12 the Authority approved a contract that authorizes sale of the county’s unoccupied shell building and remaining industrial park property to O’Gara Group. Closing was to occur no later than April 1.
When the closing date could not be met, the date was extended to July 1. On June 29 a new sales contract was approved, extending the closing date to November 1 with a provision to delay the conclusion of the transaction until December 31 or some longer interval that may necessary as a result of the unresolved litigation that is pending in Westmoreland Circuit Court.
