Negotiations Proceed on $220,000 PRFO Debt

– Options proposed have not been made public. – 

For months the City Council agendas have included a non-specific item in Closed Session entitled “Potential Litigation.” The speculation has been that the City was contemplating legal action against Piedmont Recreational Facilities Organization (PRFO) for non-payment of approximately $220,000 owed the City for legal and other expenses in connection with the proposed sports complex in Blair Park.  Mayor John Chiang, evidently breaking the privacy of closed sessions, has been quoted in the POST stating progress is being made on resolving the outstanding amount.

The sports complex did not proceed, a result of legal action against the City by Friends of Moraga Canyon (FOMC).  The legal settlement with FOMC included a recently approved contract for a design to improve landscaping in Blair Park.
