In a recent E mail to Horesthief Canyon Ranch Division, and other near by residents, regarding the proposed Power Lines and Pump Stroage project, Director Phil Williams Division 4 contends that as he promised he did everything he could to keep the lines out of Horsethief Canyon Ranch Division and writes " I did." Williams goes on to state in his writing that it has been agreed by the project partners to underground the power lines, if they come within one mile of any home within Horsethief Canyon Ranch SUBDIVISION.
The question is, is this, lie our truth? EM1 finds it strange that Mr. Williams stands alone without Board input or released information to the public, in making these promises that the project partners has agreed to put the lines underground any place in the project.. The plot thickens. Documents show that EVMWD lately has attempted to go seperate ways/divided concerning the power lines and pump storage project. First EVMWD separately from Nevada Hydro, the partners, sent a MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING (MOU) to the CPUC (Public Utilities Commission to interact with them in the LEAPS and the Environmental portion. They were rejected by the CPUC. After EVMWD sent the MOU Nevada Hydro in a separate application without EVMWD's involvement to the CPUC seeking to get certified on the power lines only. That application is now pending. Also the FERC application between EVMWD and Nevada Hydro is also pending. It is beyond EM1 how Director Williams outside of a firm commitment documented in cement continue to contend that Nevada Hydro will do what he promised they would. This project has so many twist and turns it is next to impossible for anyone to even believe that the so called LEAPS will ever come to pass. EM1 cannot help but believe in light of all the twist and turns of the proposed project plus the over 4 million dollars, of public funds that have been spent for naught, having started about 15 years ago, that, this project has always been about money. As in laundering. By the actions of all involved keeping the public mostly in the dark, holding secret meetings with Nevada Hydro, without public input or knowledge they are behaving like drug users and criminals. For a public agency to behave the way they do is unacceptable and is very questionable. EM1, have had it and is calling for drug screening and a crimnal investigation. Ask Director Williams to bring forth his contentions, in confirmation and cement.
