ReSources for Sustainable Communities
Look at this 2011 contract for $102,116.00, to target you! Have you heard about "Stormwater University"? The City of Bellingham has ReSources snooping around to identify likely environmental miscreants - businesses that they feel might pollute -- and then subject them to a training program. What gets even more bizarre, the City of Bellingham expanded this down into Skagit County, too. Watch out, Skagit.
From 2005 through June 2011, ReSources - not shy about being an activist organization -- has been selling a lot of services to both Whatcom County and the City of Bellingham:
City of Bellingham $259,585.00 (contracts)
Whatcom County $474,005.18 (disbursements)
Total $ 733,590.18
The public should know that Carl Weimer, who was Executive Director of ReSources for 13 years, has been serving as a county councilman since 2006. He's currently the chairman of county council. Has he ever recused himself of voting to approve a grant or contract award to ReSources? WE don't think he ever has, or ever would.
There's a very real crony/corruption problem in this county.
