Environmental Coalition Sues Fort Ord LRA over Cleanup Funds By VIRGINIA HENNESSEY Monterey Herald (CA) March 18, 2012Open space advocates filed suit Monday to get an accounting of how the Fort Ord Reuse Authority spent nearly $100 million in federal money.
Keep Fort Ord Wild is asking a judge to compel FORA to release documents it first requested under the Public Records Act in December. Molly Erickson, attorney for the group, said FORA responded with incomplete records and said it does not have or has destroyed the rest.
At issue is a $99.3 million grant, the Environmental Services Cooperative Agreement, issued in 2007 for cleanup of munitions and explosives on Fort Ord.
The records supplied say the majority of the money, $82.1 million, purchased an "environmental insurance policy." Erickson said FORA representatives said they did not have a copy of the policy and didn't have a right to request one unless a claim were filed.
