The San Joaquin County Grand Jury has accused the Woodbridge Sanitary District of a litany of improprieties in its operations.

The small district, which provides sewer service to Woodbridge, has allegedly committed payroll fraud, fiscal mismanagement, falsified state water records, harassed employees, used nepotism and favoritism, failed to adequately train employees and lacked board polices and procedures, according to a grand jury report issued on Wednesday.

    Fraud, fiscal mismanagement, falsified records,, lack of policies and procedures, sounds to me that they are right on par with all Government operations. The Grand Jury is starting at the very bottom, they're going to be very busy.

    I'd hope the free spending Woodbridge Irrigation District would be next. Aren't both entities basically controlled by the local wealthy, greedy good old boys? For such a tiny district with few employees, why such a large new office building? And the recent purchase of land by one of these entities? Woodbridge is a wealthy little town controlled by the local, wealthy interests with no oversight at all and greed seems to be the motivating factor driving this rich community.
