Ah, yes. Nothing like early morning emails, and this one's a doozie.
So, Poopsie, you say you have to work and can't make Friday's 1:30 pm. Regional Water Quality Control Board's hearing on the CDO status of The Los Osos 45 as well as everyone else in the PZ, a meeting that will cover discussion of the staff report that recommends that the The Los Osos 45 be left hanging in the wind -- no Christmas candy for them, just coal lumps in their shoes AND threatened CAO's for the rest of you homeowners hanging just a No Appeal/No "Trial" envelope-lick away.
And, because you have to work, you also won't be able to hear the County's presentation on the update of the election as well as updates on the progress of the wastewater project, so you think you can come home and watch it all on TV, since this is an important hearing, full of critical information concerning your home, concerning legal issues involving your home, critical county updates on this project, and you know the Tribune often misses or gets stuff wrong so you want to see the hearing for yourself?
ERRRRNNNKKK, sorry, Poopsie. Out of luck. As of this posting, the County refuses to pay AGP video to tape the hearing. The CSD's broke, so now AGP is asking if the citizens can pass the hat to pay them -- something the citizens have had to do in the past.
Yep, BLACKOUT OR PRIVITIZE! If citizens want to know what the RWQCBoard has to say about threats to their homes . . . pay up Poopsie.
But don't worry, instead of being able to hear what the Staff and Board members actually have to say, I'll be happy to take notes and fill you in. Of course, I may focus on one thing of interest to ME, that YOU might not find of interest, hence I might miss the one critical issue of concern to YOU.
Well, tough. As a citizen of the PZ whose home is at risk by actions already taken and being considered now by a regulatory agency, you have no right to know what's going on unless you PAY to find out what's going on.
Or you can take off work and attend the meeting yourself. PEG access TV and AGP's various contracts to keep the public informed of critical public meetings doesn't include YOU.
Well, if you think this is unacceptable, you need to call your Superviso right now. After all, wasn't part of the County's outreach program designed to keep citizens in the loop at all times, to make sure meetings as critical as this one be available to people who can watch it unedited, un-filtered, gavel to gavel, so they can see for themselves what has transpired?
Oh, sure. Right.
