Whistlestop Issues Legal Claim Against SMART

Whistlestop Issues Legal Claim Against SMART2/1/2012 – San Rafael Patch

After three years of negotiating with a musical chairs rotation of Sonoma-Marin Area Rail Transit general managers about the fate of senior services center Whistlestop, Executive Director Joe O’Hehir issued a legal claim to the agency.

“This is an issue that SMART needs to come and work with us on,” O’Hehir said.

The legal claim (avialable on the right) states that SMART owes Whistlestop compensation for the loss of parking spaces the station would take over and the impact construction would have on the center. The claim, issued in November 2011, means that if these issues are not solved before construction begins in the summer of 2013, O’Hehir will sue.

“We’re hoping that it doesn’t go to court,” he said. “We need to work together to find a solution.”
