“What happened was myself and (Mayor) Paul Miller met with KB Homes as did other council members at different times. They wanted to know what we thought the next approach should be and I said ‘As a Council Member, I don’t plan on going forward until I see the results back from the three agencies that we have contacted and that they specifically answer questions that appeared in CityBeat.’

“I said ‘(Michael Collins) has legitimate questions – I need to know the answers’ and they said, ‘well, we think that is a pretty good idea too. We probably won’t even be ready to go until January.’ I said, ‘That’s a good thing. You need to back off until those reports are done.’ What we can do is that we’ve requested the City to put the letters that we’re sent to the agencies on our (City of Simi Valley) website so everybody can see what we’re asking.”

“Until such time that we get that back, they’re (KB Homes) not going to be doing anything.”

“If there is anything that we need to discuss, we’ll do it at that time. If they find anything – if they bring anything up, we’re going to be discussing it. And if not, if everything says no, this is what happened – if you (Michael Collins) come back and counter and say ‘no, you didn’t look at this’ – we want to make sure we get the answers. This is too important to be playing games with people’s lives.”
