… OCTOBER 26, 2013
As the old saying goes, “Beggars can’t be choosy.”
It appears that the City Council of Wildomar is once again bowing to the ecclesiastical calendar set by Tom Pilkington, representative for the United Methodist Church/Great Day of Service 2013 (“GDOS”).
After the initial date of June 01, 2013 was rendered moot by the illegal actions of the Parks & Recreation Subcommittee, Pilkington apparently set the next date of October 12, 2013 for his GDOS. However, for some unknown reason, that date was supplanted by an even later date,October 26, 2013.
The primary problem with October 26, 2013, over and above the fact that it is Halloween weekend for a lot of families, is that the ideal time for planting a new lawn is from August 15 through September 30.
As a result, planting new grass in Wildomar’s three parks on October 26, 2013 may turn out to be too late in the planting season to prevent all of the volunteer effort from being a heartbreaking waste.

It would appear that the City of Wildomar would be better served by retaining a landscape professional through appropriate bidding process before successfully spending $75,000-$100,000, rather than wasting $200,000, as estimated by Wildomar City Manager Gary Nordquist.
See the recent Californian article on the subject, for confirmation of the $200,000 estimate :
