Board Of Supervisors to Discuss Offset Ordinance on Water Use Today

Meeting Place for San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors
By the time you see this, I will be preparing to leave for an important meeting of the San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors at this County Government Center in San Luis Obipso, our county seat. Like most citizens, I would rather not be involved in politics, but sometimes you have to make your voice heard to try to protect your rights. Dirty politics goes on at all levels of government from the city on up to the national level.

I have learned that the local level is where one can have the most influence and get to actually know the people who make the decisions. If they are corrupt you can sometimes stop them at the local level before they can move to higher offices.

Our country is engaged in a battle as old as California -- water and property rights. One small area at one end of our county has had a few wells go dry. So some county supervisors declared a crisis and tried to use it to make new ordinances that give them control over areas that have no shortage. These are some of the issues that will send me to the meeting February 24. The action will start about 1:30 on these issues. You can read more about them in this article.

If you own acreage in San Luis Obipso County, please consider attending the meeting if you can. Try to get there about 1:15 PM.
