Re: KITCHELL CAPITAL EXPENDITURES MANAGEMENT, Inc, v Jonathan McKim

 

Dear Mr. O'Loughlin:

Thank you for your letter. I am currently in the process of redacting and removing Mr. McKim's allegedly false statements from CUSDWatch posts, both on the web site and on facebook.

It was never my intention to harm the reputation of Kitchell. It was my intention to protect the staff and students at Dana Hills High School by ensuring that the roof structure is safe for occupancy. The only way to be sure, it to have a full structural engineering review of Dana Hills High School. 

I wish to direct you to CUSDs' website: Dana Hills High School Facilities Repairs

The outstanding issue for the public is that the structural review done by KNA Structural Engineer was a "Limited Structural Assessment". According to the reports provided by the District, KNA only inspected the lower roof area and did not inspect the upper roofs where it has been alleged that the damage was substantial. In addition, the KNA report did acknowledge that the concrete mix for the structure may have been bad as alleged by Mr. McKim. 

see CUSD Website:

Irrespective of the truth of Mr. McKims statements, the public needs assurance that this building is safe to occupy. CUSD has not done enough to make that assurance. 

It may take me a day or to redact and remove all references to Mr. Kim, but it is my intention to fully comply with your request.

Thank you,

Dawn Urbanek
