Seems that the Attorney General has had to step in and nix the over-the-counter permit approval that Nelson Fiahlo (city mgr) and Brian Dolan (city planning mgr) did when they approved Global TV University www.globaltvu.us to operate recently in the same building on Boulder Court raided by the Feds on 1/19/2011 and by the same owner arrested and awaiting trial for an indictment that includes 30+ crimes.
Last week, the State published this 21 page enforcement action at this location ---Web Link
After the Boulder Court building was targeted for a forfeiture/seizure action and the owner arrested, the city of Pleasanton without apparently notifying any State or Federal agency at all or engaging in any public process whatsoever (including the mandated California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) process), approved the new "University" to operate.
Though local governmental entities have no authority to approve and regulate private schools, seems that Pleasanton city management thinks it can.
How many more millions of dollars will it take for the State and Federal government to step in and fix messes that the city of Pleasanton creates by approving over-the-counter zoning actions to time and time again allow illegal businesses to operate?
