David Rubiales: The right to know

Since July 1, 2014 the Nevada County Board of Supervisors has authorized $175,000 in expenditures for non-county employed attorneys in their fight against Penn Valley residents Peter and Juliette Lockyer over the county’s first and only “visually important ridge line.”

At the Nevada County Board of Supervisors meeting on July 21 the county staff requested that the supervisors authorize a further $100,000 expenditure for the same purpose, thereby upping the cost to $275,000 of taxpayer money. Thus far, the supervisors have not explained the purpose of these expenditures to their constituents. Don’t we have a right to know?
