Feds raid Palo Alto Utilities Department in fraud probe

Original post made by Sarah, Midtown, on Feb 10, 2009

The Mercury-News is reporting that the Feds raided the Palo Alto Utilities Department last week Friday as part of a criminal fraud investigation. Why no news of this on PaloAltoOnline?

Another instance of possible criminal activity connected with the Utilities Department. Is anyone seriously surprised?!

Maybe the Feds can do what the city has been unwilling and unable to do: Clean house at our Utilities Department.

Sarah, ah, I see you brought this to the Weekly's attention and it was not the Weekly's own initiative. Go figure. The Weekly is more interested in highlighting volunteers than real investigative reporting! Thanks for bringing this to our attention. Disgusted with the Weekly.

Thanks for mentioning this. i have not love for the PAUD since 2000 when they turned my elderly mother's electricity off without notice on New Year's Day because she had forgotten to pay her bill along with a big deposit that she never got back.

Not to mention the constant stench that emit form the sewage treatment plant. Why is it that Sunnyvale's much larger treatment plant does not stink like ours does? Could they be skimping on chemicals or processing or something?

Sorry, but further commenting on this topic has been closed.
