Arraignment of ex-Placerville mayor postponed

By Carlos Alcalá

The arraignment of ex-Placerville mayor David Machado scheduled for today has been postponed.

Machado is now scheduled for arraignment on Oct. 18. He was arrested in August on felony charges connected with his property holdings in the city.

Machado was later removed as the city's mayor.

An El Dorado County Distict Attorney's complaint alleges Machado hid ownership of property within the city's Redevelopment Zone in violation of disclosure laws. It also said he did unpermitted work on his properties within the city and attempted, in some cases, to cover that up.
