Santa Clara County FireSafe Council
January 31, 2013

The FireSafe Council was supposed to clear dead weeds off my property so I was fire hazard compliant. Instead, they stripped all ground cover off my property which is on a very steep hillside. This allowed water to run underneath my house, causing clay soil expansion and this in turn caused cracking in my inside walls and driveway. There is not a soil engineer in the U.S. who would not tell the Council that stripping ground cover off a steep hillside is extremely negligent. The Council also removed nearly all my California native plants, mistaking them for weeds and destroying the beauty of my garden! It will cost me $2,000 to replace the ground cover and cut down California natives and another $1,500 to repair the cracks in my driveway and inside my house. When I asked them to pay for their negligence, their attitude is too bad!!!!!
