- To the Residents of the Water Wheel Resort:
On August 17, 2010,
the Colorado River Indian Tribes filed a Notice of Motion and Motion for
Issuance of Writ of Restitution (Motion) against the Water Wheel Camp Recreation
Area, Inc. in the Tribal Court of the Colorado River Indian Tribes (Court). The
Motion asks the Court to order the immediate eviction of the Water Wheel Camp
Recreation Area, Inc. and its agents or employees.
According to testimony provided by Robert Johnson, the agents or employees of
the Water Wheel Camp Recreation Area, Inc. are Robert Johnson, Christine
Johnson, Brandon Johnson, Salvador Sepulveda, Nellie Toburen, and Patricia
Mirinda. The Tribe did not file, and does not intend to file, any document
seeking to evict any resident of the Water Wheel Resort other than those listed
For more than three years, the Tribe has consistently stated it intends to take
over management and operation of the Water Wheel Resort once Water Wheel Camp
Recreation Area, Inc., and its agents or employees are removed from the
premises. The Tribe has also consistently stated that it does not intend to evict
individual residents of the Water Wheel Resort.
For your information, copies of the the Tribe's filings will be posted on the
Tribe's website www.crit-nsn.gov. The Tribe sincerely hopes this action will
not interfere with your continued use and enjoyment of the Water Wheel Resort.
