(Santa Cruz) Grand jury’s final report now online

Posted: Friday, Nov 11th, 2011

The final report of the 2011 Santa Cruz County Civil Grand Jury has been put online, complete with responses from those investigated.

The city of Watsonville was the target of an investigation titled “City of Watsonville: Fastest Growing City Looking for Leadership and a Fire Truck.” The investigation questioned the process the city took when buying a used fire truck, which was purchased in 2008 but did not arrive in Watsonville until earlier this year; questioned the city’s apparent nondisclosure of environmental issues concerning selective land use permits; criticized the city for its handling of development issues around the airport; and criticized the city for failing to provide the public, the City Council and other elected bodies with complete information regarding city functions.
