VICTORVILLE • City Council members denied allegations that they hid information about property interests with the Victorville 2 Power Plant project at Southern California Logistics Airport.

The City Council, which also serves as the airport authority, reported after a closed-session discussion Tuesday that it determined Murrieta resident Robert Landwehr’s accusation of a Brown Act violation was unfounded.

City Attorney Andre de Bortnowsky specifically addressed Landwehr’s claim that transparency was lacking in the property interests of public officials and outside contractors regarding the Victorville 2 project site.

“Mr. Landwehr has asserted that city officials have interests in the properties selected for development for the power plant — none of the current city officials at this point had any interest in those properties,” de Bortnowsky said at the meeting. “In addition, our research has indicated that no former city officials had any interest in those properties.”
