DAY 318 - THE BUCK STOPS WHERE?

This morning we reported about arrogant Billboard Dutch Boy Bockweg refusing to give city commissioners an accounting of his budget that goes to salary increases and more bureaucrats.

And now we find more bureaucratic indifference and arrogance from the City administration.

Imagine if you made a $100,000 mistake in your job, would you have a job tomorrow?

Well, according to the Miami Today, that's exactly what just happened at the City.

IRS PENALTY: In another case of the City of Miami paying now for past mistakes, Finance Director Diana Gomez told commissioners last week that the city had to pay the Internal Revenue Service a $100,000 penalty for not reporting on time. City Manager Carlos Migoya said an employee who was in charge of making payments was late twice and the $100,000 was the second of two fines. He said the employee no longer works for the city. Ms. Gomez said a system is now in place to avoid late payments, including online payments rather than by phone and a second person who checks that payments have gone through.

Mistakes of the past?

Who was there IN THE PAST and responsible for oversight of the Finance Department?

Larry Spring!

From September 2007

"The City of Miami City Manager Pete Hernandez has announced the appointment of Larry Spring to Chief Financial Officer. In his new role, Mr. Spring will oversee the Departments of Finance,"

Larry loves his $200,000+ compensation, but he won't take responsibility for the mistakes of his employees.

And yes, this too:

He became a Certified Public Accountant in May, 2001.

So is he a CPA or not?

$100,000 of OUR money needlessly down the drain.

Where does the buck stop?

The buck doesn't stop with Larry, that's for sure. He passes the buck to whoever he can so that he can keep his job. Moron!

Of Course he is a CPA!
As long as that stands for "certified piss ant"!

This is the second time the IRS fined the City because tax notices were not filed on time. Larry Spring and Diana Gomez promised it would never happen again.

Larry Spring is the same guy who gave the commissioners a so-called balanced budget that was actually $50 Mil plus in the red.

Under Larry Spring the reserves have gone from $140 mil to zero.

Diana Gomez said...

Uh, we pissed away $100,000, sorry commissioners...

This happened last year for $54,000.00. Spring said it would never happen again...but it did!

Isn't Spring going to Roswell, NM as the City Manager? Good bye and adios you liar!

If he is a C.P.A. why isn't he registered with the State?

What did Liaroff say about Spring. He said he was a carrier of water.

Ms. Gomez said a system is now in place to avoid late payments, including online payments rather than by phone and a second person who checks that payments have gone through.

Ms. Gomez also said this a year ago when they had to pay the IRS another penalty. Will she be saying this same song and dance next year?

Larry Spring says he became a Certified Public Accountant in May, 2001.

Liaroff says that his grand pappy is the RCA/NBC millionaire Marc David Sarnoff.

Are they all liars in City Hall?

Regalado says taxes didn't go up

Liaroff says it doesn't matter what taxes are...he doesn't pay them!

Anonymous said...

Regalado and the commissioners raised the milage rate by raising the debt service milage rate and they raised fees and fines. Whatever they want to say to the public they raised taxes.

Carlos Alvarez and the County raised taxes too.

Larry Spring submits one unbalanced budget after another.

Must be nice to work for government?

Read Al Crespo's latest about the illegal doo doo going on over at the CRAs by the duo of Sarnoff and Dunn...It ain't pretty!

FINANCE DEPARTMENT EMPLOYEE SAYS.....

This is bullshit! No fucking Mayor, Commissioner, City Manager, Diana, Larry or whoever is going to shut me up! I have been here for a very long time and I can tell you that Diana is the most inept and incompetent Finance Director I have ever seen. She is a liar! Pete Chircut you were involved the last time the City was in Financial Crisis. We gave you the benefit of the doubt, but no more. You were involved in these illegal transfers again. We all know it.

The first time the IRS Penalty was imposed the Payroll Division reported to Hector Mirabile in Employee Relations. When this was presented to the City Commission. The Commission was told that the person responsible for the mistake was dismissed. That person was Hector Mirabile. The Payroll Division and functions were moved to Diana Gomez and the Finance Department. Nonetheless, the mistake occurred again. NOW, YOU TELL ME WHY IS IT THAT DIANA GOMEZ HAS NOT GOTTEN FIRED!

FINANCE DEPARTMENT EMPLOYEE SAYS......

I just read the Crespo Gram Report on Pieter Bockweg's double dipping by receiving two salaries from both the CRA and the City, along with the SUNSHINE VIOLATION involving the Commssioner Dumbity Dumbity Dumb Dunn and Commissioner Liaroff.

PLEASE NOTICE THAT ONCE AGAIN MY BOSS, DIANA GOMEZ, ALONG WITH HER SUGAR DADDY LARRY SPRING IS INVOLVED. PAYROLL IS IN THE FINANCE DEPARTMENT AND WE REPORT TO THE CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER, LARRY SPRING. CERTAIN FINANACE EMPLOYEES HAVE HAD ENOUGH WITH DIANA'S, LARRY SPRING AND PETER CHIRCUT'S UNETHICAL BEHAVIOR. EVERYBODY KNOWS THAT THEY WERE ALL INVOLVED WITH THE ILLEGAL TRANSFERS AND THEY CONTINUE TO BELIEVE THEY WALK ON WATER.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! DIANA HIRES AND THEN PROMOTES HER BABY SITTER, MELANIA, WHO CAN'T WRITE OR SPEAK ENGLISH. SHE THEN GETS TOGETHER WITH PETE CHIRCUT AND HIRES HIS SON, TRIVENI CHIRCUT WHO IS NOW PART OF THE PAYROLL TEAM. HOW IS THIS NOT A CONFLICT OF INTEREST, CRONYISM AND NEPOTISM. SEVERAL MEMBERS OF THE FINANCE DEPARTMENT ARE DISCUSSING REPORTING THIS TO THE STATE ATTORNEY'S OFFICE. I'M LEADING THE CHARGE!

THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION WILL ALSO BE CONTACTED.!

I'd rather have the finance department blogging about the truth than Corruptalado and Metesela Migoya stealing our money.

Regalado raised taxes, fees and fines from struggling homeowners so that 85% of all City revenue can go to city employees.

Screw the taxpayers!
