ANC Commissioner Weaver:
I guess I fail to understand your happiness (below) that the sleazy contractor moved the picnic table without any monitoring and thus DPR notified them "You are in violation of your contract". While you and Councilman Graham have been avoiding the Kalorama Park scandal as best as possible, or in the case of Graham, has dealt with problems by reversing his positions, basically every single critical aspect of the Anti-Erosion Project contracts have been executed without DPR supervision and then DPR PAID FOR IT ANYWAY, which is where the contract fraud issues really come in.
If Commissioner Weaver or Councilman Graham have any reason to believe that Ward One citizens might evaluate your future leadership prospects in Ward One by looking at your respective leaderships of the Anti-Erosion Project scandals thus far, then please join me by appealing to the Office of the Inspector General (details below) and asking the OIG to open a formal investigation of the Anti-Erosion Project contracts in Kalorama Park (Ward One) and Mitchell Park (Ward Two). This incident of the picnic table is just the latest in a very long string of contract violations.
Office of the Inspector General
717 14th Street, NW, Fifth Floor
Washington, DC 20005 (202) 727-2540
Email: hotline.oig at dc.gov
Hotline: (202) 724-TIPS (202) 724-8477 and (800) 521-1639
For that matter, I invite any other Ward One citizen to contact the OIG and let them know a great scandal now causing permanent damage to the resources of the Park has been on-going for well over a year, and we want it stopped, the damage undone, and the miscreants prosecuted.

My point about the Mintwood project was that procurements of contracts in DC is a huge problem, they are often fraught with negligence of oversight from the agencies --- such as DPR's contractor The Temple Group or DDOT's contractor Fort Meyer--- contractors often violate the terms of the contract and little or nothing is done to penalize them for shddy or illegal performance.
With that said I was happy to see that DPR acknowledged today that the contractor at Kalorama Park has violated terms of the contract by removing the picnic table. Good times.
>From DPR to Contractor:
"Your Daily Report for Thursday May 27 notes that the picnic table has been moved. You are in violation of your contract. See Scope:
Contractor shall field-confirm ALL table locations with COTR prior to proceeding with any table move.
Contractor shall not perform any table relocation work whatsoever unless COTR is on site.
Contractor shall be responsible for any and all damage to picnic table."
