BE ON THE LOOKOUT
OMNI CRA MOVES OUT  -LEAVES NO FORWARDING ADDRESS

Things haven’t been going well for Pieter Bockweg and the OMNI CRA since Commissioner Michelle Spence-Jones took a meat cleaver to the combined operation of the OMNI and SEOPW CRA’s, and moved out


First, by separating the CRA, Pieter Bockweg, instead of having a staff of about 12 people, ended up with himself and fellow Sarnoff butt-boy Bert Gonzalez as the only two employees of the OMNI CRA.


Then when the SEOPW moved out and set up their offices at 1490 NW 3rd Avenue, it left Bowkweg and Gonzalez in the old office location where they had already terminated their lease in anticipation of moving into the old Firehouse at the corner of N Miami Avenue and 14th Street that the CRA was spending a small fortune to renovate.


In addition to the money allocated for the renovation of the Firehouse, Sarnoff and Bockweg committed $6 million in CRA money for the renovation of 14th Street from NE 2nd Avenue to N Miami Avenue, and that didn’t turn out as expected, because at the last Commission meeting they had to get approval for another $220,000 to cover “unforseen conditions and CRA driven project requests...that were not part of the original bid documents.”

In passing, it should be noted that Mark Spanioli, the Director of Engineering and Construction for the CRA, and who was the guy responsibler for making sure that these overruns didn’t occur is supposedly going to be the replacement for Albert Sosa, as the new Director of the City’s Capitol Improvement’s Program,  which as indicated by the above letter indicates another rocket scientist is about to take the controls of a city department.


In any event, it appears that when the lease ran out, Bockweg and Gonzalez packed up what was left of the CRA’s furniture and files and slithered into the night.


If you go to the the CRA website nobody has bothered to change the address for the OMNI CRA, and if you call the phone number there’s no message that informs folks of this move.

On the one hand, I’m not sure anybody much cares where Bockweg and Gonzalez have gone - although with Bert’s thing about strip clubs, they could have set up shop somewhere that offers lap dances - but there is a big question that does warrant being asked and answered.


If these two clowns are all that’s left of the OMNI CRA, just why would they continue to get paid those absolutely stupid salaries that Commissioner “Ethics” arranged for them to get when he first stashed them at the CRA?


What about it, Commissioner, are you going to continue to pay them all that money, or will you behave like a responsible steward of the public’s money and tell them they got to agree to take less money, or go find someone else’s ass to kiss?


I understand that solid waste has a couple openings that would be just about right for your two butt-boys if nothing else is available for guys with their talents.


It’s Miami, Bitches!
