1. Los Osos CSD meeting tonight, 7:30 at the Community Center. Board will discuss how or whether they'll vote on the 218 issue for properties they "own."
2. "Property owners wishing to preserve the opportunity to file a lawsuit challenging the assessment, if levied, are requirede by the 1913 Act to file a written protest and to state therein the specific grounds of protest. Any grounds of protest not stated in a written protest filed prior to the close of the public hearing of protests are deemed waived in any subsequent lawsuit and may not be raised in such lawsuit."
So, if you think something's screwy with your assessment ballot, it's wrong, or invalid, or whatever issues you think are valid to your property, I suggest you contact Ms. Shelby of the SLO County Clerk's office to make sure you've got the proper proceedures to make a proper protest in writing before 5 p.m. Oct 23 , the date of protest hearing. (Which, by the way, will be held starting at 2 pm. in the BOS chambers on that day.) After that date and time, you'll have to forever hold your peace.
You can email questions to email@example.com .
3. Orenco representatives & design team will be in Los Osos for a Q&A presentation at the Community Center, Wednesday, October 10th, at 7:30 p.m. Community members interested in their proposed project should plan to attend so they can get first-hand information and ask questions as well.
4. The Tribune reports that the CSD may vote to approve a contract for a new general manager tonight. Mr. John B. Schempf may come aboard. The Tribune reports "For the past two years, Schempf served as manager of the town of Rockingham and Village Bellows Falls in Vermont. He also worked as a project manager in Saudia Arabia for Booz Allen Hamilton and was a senior officer in the U.S. Coast Guard, acording to his resume."
Hmmm, Saudia Arabia. Now, if that had said Mr. Schempf had served as a project manager under heavy fired by armed partisan civil war jihadis of all stripes while in Baghdad, I'd be tempted to say, Ah, well then, Mr. Schempf will know what to expect here in our Beloved Bangladesh By The Bay. Or should I make it, Baghdad By The Bay? In either event, Welcome to Los Osos, Mr. Schempf.
