(Circle) C You in Court!
Moreover, Gammon and other residents believe the board and some of its employees have direct financial links to Gary Bradley, the Circle C developer who founded the CCHOA and handpicked its board members. Bartlett, who is not a resident of Circle C, is a former Bradley business partner. For the past couple of months, residents have vented their frustrations with the CCHOA on a community Web site (www.circlec.cc), questioning everything from the limited access to the Circle C swimming pool to the number of lucrative business contracts the CCHOA has with former board member Susan Hoover.
Rigsbee, speaking for the board, commented briefly on the unexpected election roadblock: "Once a decision is made, the CCHOA will call another election," he said. "We will not respond to other allegations made by Mr. Gammon until after the court hearing, on advice of counsel."
On another matter, Gammon and other residents recently asked City Council not to approve the extension of Escarpment Boulevard to SH 45. The extension, supported by the CCHOA, was part of the city's annexation agreement with Circle C and was also a component of the city's development agreement with Bradley in 2000. Council approved the extension anyway, on a 7-0 vote.
