New Information Invalidates Latest City of Irvine Allegation
City of Irvine emails reveal that City employees monitored Forde & Mollrich invoices during the Great Park project
SAN DIEGO (March 19, 2015) – Records recently released by the City of Irvine show that the City of Irvine was responsible for negotiating contracts and reviewing invoices submitted by Forde and Mollrich for its work as part on the Orange County Great Park. This information disproves the City’s latest claim that it did not supervise Forde & Mollrich and annuls the City’s accusation that Gafcon, one of the 40 companies that made up the Design Studio, was prohibited from entering into a contract to provide consulting services to Stu Mollrich, one of the owners of Forde & Mollrich, on a home renovation project. City investigators are falsely claiming that Gafcon had approval responsibilities of Forde & Mollrich’s invoices on behalf of the Design Studio, ignoring the City’s own 13 years of contracts with Forde & Mollrich and the sworn depositions of its own employees.
