First TAC Meeting Scheduled

Press release from Los Osos Wastewater Project TAC Agenda for March 26.

The first meeting of the Los Osos Wastewater Project Technical Advisory Committee will be held on Monday, March 26, 2007 from 12:00 pm. - 2:30 pm in Room 161 of the County Government Center at 1055 Monterey St, San Luis Obispo. . . . This information can also be viewed on the Project website at www.slocounty.ca.gov/PW/LOWWP.htm


Since this will be the first meeting, maybe the first order of business should be: Shall we set up future meetings to be held in Los Osos during the evening so residents who work full time but are still interested in attending the TAC meetings can more easily attend? Or shall we set up meetings during the day to be held out on the Carizzo Plains so it would be unlikely that very many of those annoying folks from Los Osos will show up? Just a thought.

Meantime, good luck to all the members as this part of The Process gets underway.

After the opening introductory stage, perhaps the very first order of business should be a clear understanding of the purpose of the TAC and the process to be followed.

Some folks think the TAC will determining the what and where of a possible sewer. Some think TAC will develop an unbiased rank of sewer possibilities. Yet others feel the TAC would be charged to develop a compilation of pros and cons of only the final list of each of the projects developed by the Public Works Department.

Just what is your take of the purpose of this TAC?

The Carizzo Plains may be a good choice, however it would be more appropriate to have all meetings from CSD to County to RWQCB, moved to the AG's Office in Sacramento! Let's get through the BS and directly into a legal court!

"Yet others feel the TAC would be charged to develop a compilation of pros and cons of only the final list of each of the projects developed by the Public Works Department."

This is almost a direct quote from Noel King's post elsewhere on this blog. This IS the role of the TAC. They will compile a list of pros & cons of the project options the County chooses. They won't be deciding which projects make the cut, what technology is used, or where it will be built. The by-laws of the TAC also clearly spell out their responsibilities.

There is nothing to "feel" - their role has been clearly defined.

That would seem to limit the need for "public" input, especially the public of Al Barrow and Dave Duggan! They still don't seem to understand what fools they have proven themselves to be!

TAC did not and does not need the public input of those extreme fringe creatures.

If the Technical Advisory Committee allows the LO Travisty to influence their mission, we should not be surprised to hear Noel King thank the committee and then ignore anything skewed or biased as just another example of how LO has given away local control.

If the county does not appreciate the input of those citizens that can spend their afternoons at political meetings, they need to change their schedule to accommodate us working blokes.

Maybe there has been too much input already?

Don't be concerned with the time of the meetings. I do not think either Barrow or Duggan work.

I think this committee should be left alone to complete their task. The individuals do not deserve to be criticized from the peanut gallery in the wings. After they come up with what they come up with, then we can criticize.

Probably the best idea Ann has ever had here. And "annoying" is an incredible understatement. Try pathetic. Un-neighborly. Bitter. Confrontational. Grandstanding. Embarrassing.

Gee thanks Ann, on your "expect this to fail" attitude for the TAC, because not every single citizen may not be able to attend. Ever think that this might be the best time for those brave souls actually DOING the work?

I think it will be productive to have a TAC meeting in Los Osos when they are at a point where thay have something to present--as a draft presentation, not a final--and I would like to be able to read what they are thinking about before they come out here.

Other than thay, I agree, leave them alone to get some work done first. This is, after all, actually a working group.

These TAC meetings are open to the public and people should attend if they can (too bad they're not being held in Los Osos.)

Mark my words. Most, if not all, of the people who will be there are the same old 12 or so malcontents who attend the CSD and BOD meetings. And there's going to be a problem. Loud talking. Hissing. Rude comments. I hope the powers-that-be are prepared for these poltroons. And I sincerely hope the committee succeeds in their task.

Because of those malcontents, the County has shown they understand and will be better able to eject those who attempt to disrupt the process. We wouldn't want to have a less than pure process, would we Ann?

There also is no need for public comment in this very beginning. The committee needs to be installed and given their direction. It is simply premature to think the TAC will have anything to work on at this initial stage of getting organized.

Well, from the comments above, it seems like the question is settled!

There is no need of fools!

You must be humor impaired. A hint: The Carizzo Plains remark was meant to be funny (and from some of the comments posted, deadly serious to some). Plus, you didn't read my final sentence wishing the TAC good luck!

I did. Just didn't believe it.
