City of Tracy Responds to Grand Jury Report on Airport AllegationsPosted: Jun 10, 2014
Location: Tracy, Calif.
The City of Tracy received a final report from the San Joaquin County Civil Grand Jury on Friday, June 6, 2014 regarding their investigation into the Tracy Municipal Airport. The Grand Jury received a complaint alleging illegal business agreements between a developer, City Staff, and the Tracy City Council. The Grand Jury’s investigation “discovered no evidence to substantiate the complainant’s allegations of a secret and illegal business agreement having officially been entered into between a local developer, City staff, and the City Council.” The Grand Jury also found that “the City Council actions did not result in the benefits sought by the local developer.” The Grand Jury has, however, outlined four recommendations to “strengthen the City of Tracy’s associated internal policies and procedures.”
In response to the Grand Jury’s findings and recommendations, staff will formulate responses and correct any factual errors identified in the report. The City’s response to the Grand Jury recommendations will be brought before City Council on September 2, 2014.
