Irvine Releases New Round of Great Park Depositions

Irvine officials released two more depositions Tuesday taken as part of the ongoing forensic audit into more than $200 million in Great Park spending.

The transcripts are of interviews with Walter Kreutzen, who was the park’s CEO from January 2005 to January 2007, and Colleen Clark, who was its deputy CEO and chief financial officer from August 2005 to September 2009.

The raw documents released Tuesday are available below, and include redactions made by the city:

In a deposition released Monday, former Great Park CEO Mike Ellzey said Councilman Larry Agran had such a close relationship with two of the park’s private consultants that he and the rest of the park’s staff were, in effect, working for the very consultants they were supposed to be overseeing.

No more depositions are scheduled for release this week, according to city officials.
