Missing? Misplaced? Unaccounted for?
None of the above, says former Arroyo Seco Neighborhood Council Treasurer Mark Legassie in response to the ongoing imbroglio surrounding the board's inventory.
On Saturday, Feb. 9, Legassie will hold an O'Bin House from 2-4 p.m. at 5710 Monterey Road. The purpose, he says, is to invite community members to have a look at a storage bin that was purchased for the Hermon Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) by the ASNC.

The bin, and its contents, were among several items listed as unaccounted for by ASNC Treasurer Judy Knapton in an inventory report released in October listing more than $11,000 in missing items.
Sycamore Grove Representative and Hermon resident Joseph Riser disputed the report, saying it was "a little inflammatory" to suggest that the items were missing, when they were in fact purchased for community organizations.
Legassie responded the Knapton's report as well, releasing a 19-page report complete with references to motions showing that many of the expenditures were made for local community groups.
The Department of Neighborhood Empowerment has recommended that the board publicly devise a plan of action to reach out to the parties believed to be in possession of the items.
"This process will ensure that the Board has agreed as a body with respect to its property and how possession of the property should be addressed," a letter from Department of Neighborhood Empowerment Interim General Manager Grayce Liu. "Other items should be removed from the inventory list if they were lost/broken/discarded or specifically issued to another organization."
