Another 4-1 vote by Board of Supervisors

Surprise! Surprise! Another 4 to 1 vote by your Board of Supervisors. The same four are still working desperately to pass every personal agenda through the month of December before their rubber stamp is taken away.

Dryden Wilson gave the citizens of Nevada County $887,000 to be used for parks and open space. In September, the supervisors set the money aside until they could gather criteria from the parks and recreation districts, so they could make sound judgements on how your money would be best used for you.

In their rush to spend the money on their pet projects, they side- stepped their September decision to gather information and voted to give the bulk of the money to the Land Trust, naming Loma Rica and North Star as high priorities.

Had Mr. Wilson wanted to give the money to the Land Trust, he could have done so directly. There’s a fishy smell in the air, with Bruce Conklin wanting to use the bulk of the money plus $110,000 from the General Fund to purchase open space in Loma Rica. You have to wonder what behind-closed-door agreements have been made with Loma Rica.
