AND, UH, WITH THAT IN MIND, UM, TONIGHT I AM GOING TO BE HONORING SOMEONE WHO, UH, I HAD THE GREAT PLEASURE OF HAVING SERVE AS MY PUBLIC WORKS COMMISSIONER FOR 12 YEARS.

BUT, UH, BILL HAS SERVED THE CITY OF CHINO HILLS COMMUNITY AS A PUBLIC WORKS COMMISSIONER FOR 24 YEARS.

THE COMMISSION WAS FIRST FORMED IN APRIL, EXCUSE ME, EARLY 1993.

AND COUNCIL MEMBER JIM THALMANN APPOINTED BILL TO REPLACE OUTGOING COMMISSIONER, TIM WALBRIDGE EXCUSE ME, I'M GOING TO DROP THIS JUST FOR A MOMENT.

I'M PROUD TO SAY THAT BILL HAS BEEN MY APPOINTEE SINCE I BECAME A MEMBER OF THE CITY COUNCIL IN 2008, HE HAS SERVED AS CHAIR AND VICE-CHAIR MANY TIMES OVER THE YEARS, BILL IS THE CONSUMMATE COMMISSIONER.

HE HAS WELL-PREPARED INSIGHTFUL, PASSIONATE, COLLEGIAL, AND HE HAS A SOLID UNDERSTANDING OF THE GOVERNMENTAL PROCESS.

HE'S AN EXPERT ON PUBLIC WATER AND ENERGY MATTERS.

AND HIS INPUT WAS SIGNIFICANT AS THE PUBLIC WORKS COMMISSION REVIEWED AND RECOMMENDED POLICY REGARDING WATER ISSUES.

DURING THE SIGNIFICANT DROUGHT THAT WE HAD FACED IN CALIFORNIA, THE COMMISSION WAS KEY IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF OUR WATER CONSERVATION ORDINANCE, WHICH WAS THE FIRST OF ITS KIND IN THE REGION.

HE UNDERSTANDS HOW GOVERNMENTAL AFFECTS OR GOVERNMENT AFFECTS THE REAL LIVES OF PEOPLE.

AND HE MAKES SURE THAT THEIR CONCERNS ARE HEARD BEFORE A DECISION IS MADE.

ONE OF BILL'S COLA OR COLLEAGUES ON THE PUBLIC WORKS COMMISSION IN THE EARLY DAYS, OUR PLANNING COMMISSIONER, MIKE STOVER SAID THAT IF HE WAS PICKING AN ALL COMMISSION, ALL STARS TEAM BILL WOULD BE A MEMBER OF THAT TEAM.

I THINK THAT SAYS IT ALL.

WHEN YOU, YOUR FELLOW COMMISSIONERS HAVE THAT HIGH REGARD FOR YOU, WE WISH YOU WELL IN YOUR NEW HOME, IN CORONA, ON BEHALF OF THE ENTIRE CITY COUNCIL, WE'D LIKE TO THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO SAY A FEW WORDS BEFORE I PRESENT THIS TO YOU? WELL, I'M GOING TO PRESENT IT TO YOU.

SO, UM, BUT, UH, I, IT'S JUST BEEN A PLEASURE.

IT'S BEEN AN HONOR, UM, FOR FOLKS THAT ARE NEW TO THE CITY, JUST EVEN FACILITIES LIKE THIS, WE DIDN'T START OUT LIKE THIS.

THE CITY IS AN AMAZING PLACE AND IT'S AN AMAZING PLACE BECAUSE OF ART AND ALL THE OTHER FELLOW CITY COUNCIL FOLKS HERE AND THE CITY COUNCIL FOLKS BEFORE THEM AND THE CITY COUNCIL FOLKS BEFORE THEM AND THE COMMISSIONERS.

UM, THEY, IT'S A VERY SMALL GROUP OF PEOPLE, BUT THEY'RE VERY SMART, VERY HARDWORKING AND DEDICATED, AND THEY'VE CREATED AN AMAZING PLACE FOR EVERYONE HERE.

HE WORKS FOR THE METROPOLITAN WATER DISTRICT AND UH, IN ISRAEL THERE, IT WAS, IT WAS SO TO OUR CITY WITH ALL THE THINGS THAT YOU WOULD DO, AND HE WOULD ALSO BE A VOLUNTEER IN TOWN.

SO HE'S THE COMMISSIONER THAT YOU'D ALWAYS SEE.

THAT'S A LOT BILL.

THANK YOU.

THEN NEXT ITEM

[5. PROCLAMATION - Proclaiming Chino Hills as a Purple Heart City]

IS A PROCLAMATION PROCLAIMING CHINO HILLS AS A PURPLE HEART CITY.

ALL RIGHT.

THE RESIDENTS OF CHINO HILLS HAVE GREAT ADMIRATION AND GRATITUDE FOR ALL THE MEN AND WOMEN WHO HAVE SIX SELFISHLY SELFLESSLY SERVED OUR COUNTRY IN THE ARMED FORCES.

VETERANS HAVE PAID THE HIGH PRICE FOR OUR FREEDOM BY LEAVING THEIR FAMILIES AND COMMUNITIES AND DEFENDING THE HARD WON LIBERTIES OF OUR CONSTITUTION.

MANY CITIZENS OF OUR COMMUNITY HAVE RECEIVED THE PURPLE HEART MEDAL IN RECOGNITION OF BEING WOUNDED IN COMBAT WITH AN ENEMY FORCE.

THE RIVERSIDE NATIONAL CEMETERY IS THE FINAL POSTING FOR MANY OF OUR VETERANS.

THEY FOUGHT IN WORLD WAR II, KOREA, THE COLD WAR VIETNAM AND THE IRAQ AFGHANISTAN WARS, AND ARE NOW AT REST EACH MONTH.

LOCAL VETERANS SALUTE THESE HEROES WHO ARE LAID TO REST AT RIVERSIDE NATIONAL CEMETERY.

THESE INLAND EMPIRE VETERANS ENSURE THAT EVERY VETERAN HAS A MOURNER IN ATTENDANCE AT THE CEREMONY AS THEY'RE LAID TO REST ON BEHALF OF THE CITY OF CHINO HILLS.

SO THE COUNCIL WERE PROCLAIMING CHINO HILLS AS A DESIGNATED PURPLE HEART CITY TO HONOR THE SERVICE AND SACRIFICE OF OUR NATIONS, MEN AND WOMEN IN UNIFORM WOUNDED, OR KILLED BY THE ENEMY WHILE SERVING TO PROTECT THE FREEDOM ENJOYED BY ALL AMERICANS ON THE CALL WITH US TONIGHT IS LEN TREVON DAVEY, A SERVICE OFFICER FOR THE MILITARY ORDER OF PURPLE HEART.

UH, THANK YOU.

UH, AGAIN, THIS IS A WHAT THE SIXTH OR SEVENTH YEAR IN A ROW THAT I'VE HAD THE HONOR OF, OF ADDRESSING, UH, THE CITY COUNCIL OF CHINO HILLS.

AND I CERTAINLY APPRECIATE YOUR SUPPORT.

UM, AS A VETERAN, ONE OF THE THINGS THAT COMES TO MIND AS WE APPROACH THANKSGIVING IS, UH, IT'S NOT UNUSUAL FOR THE HOST OR HOSTESS TO SAY, OKAY, UH, POLITICS AND SPORTS ARE OFF LIMITS OR TALK ABOUT ANYTHING ELSE YOU WANT.

AND THE ROOM GOES SILENT UNLESS YOU HAVE A VETERAN BECAUSE THE VETERAN ALWAYS REMEMBERS WHERE HE WAS WHEN HE WAS IN SERVICE ON THANKSGIVING.

UH, PARTICULARLY IF, IF HE WAS, UH, OVERSEAS OR AWAY FROM HIS FAMILY, UH, THANKSGIVING BECOMES ONE OF THOSE MEMORIES THAT HE CAN TALK ABOUT AND IT MAKES EVERYONE IN THE ROOM APPRECIATE MORE.

THE FACT THAT THEY WERE ABLE TO GET TOGETHER THIS YEAR MAY BE SOMEWHAT LIMITED OR NOT, BUT IT MAKES

[00:15:01]

THIS A SPECIAL THANKSGIVING REMEMBRANCE.

AND OF COURSE FOR US THIS YEAR, UM, WE WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER THE DEMIC THANKSGIVING AND I GUESS YEARS FROM NOW, UM, 15 YEARS, MAYBE A FIVE AND SIX YEAR OLD GRANDCHILDREN WILL SAY, GRANDMA, GRANDPA, WHAT WAS IT LIKE BRINGING A PANDEMIC THANKSGIVING? AND I SUPPOSE WE'LL SAY, WELL, WE HOARDED TOILET PAPER.

YOU KNOW, IT'S, IT'S SO DIFFERENT THIS YEAR, BUT FOR THOSE OF US WHO WERE VETERANS, UM, THE FACT THAT WE STILL HAVE PEOPLE OUT THERE THANKING US, UH, IT IS, UH, SOMETHING THAT WE TREASURE VERY, VERY MUCH.

SO THANK YOU FOR WHAT YOU'RE DOING FOR US AND THE SUPPORT THAT YOU'LL GIVE ALL OUR VETERANS.

THANK YOU, LYNN.

AND YOU KNOW, IRONICALLY, 52 YEARS AGO, WHEN I WAS IN CAMERON BAY, SOUTH VIETNAM, TOILET PAPER WAS, UH, UH, AN ISSUE THEN AS WELL.

SO THANK YOU.

THANK YOU SO MUCH, MY FRIEND.

I APPRECIATE IT VERY MUCH.

OKAY.

TAKE CARE AND GOD BLESS AND HAVE A HAPPY THANKSGIVING.

ALL RIGHT.

SO THOSE OF YOU ARE FAMILIAR WITH HOW TO ACCESS THE INFORMATION FIRST IN THE UPPER RIGHT PORTION OF THE SCREEN.

YOU'LL NOTICE THE SEARCH BAR AND THAT WILL ALLOW YOU TO SEARCH FOR SPECIFIC ADDRESSES OR ASSESSOR PARCEL NUMBERS.
