A cooperative Pismo would be refreshing
Supervisor Adam Hill
Pismo Beach is refusing to honor its indemnification contract with LAFCO. This will lead to Pismo being sued by LAFCO or its insurance carrier. This follows a period when Pismo was not paying its bills to LAFCO over its work on the Los Robles Del Mar application. Most likely this will lead to LAFCO refusing to accept any more applications from Pismo. This is unprecedented.
All of this is relevant because Pismo's council has a well-established reputation for thumbing its nose at its neighboring cities and other agencies like LAFCO and the Coastal Commission. It has also bailed out on its obligations to Lucia Mar in regard to redevelopment monies.
As its representative to the county, Pismo's behavior is quite frankly, embarrassing. That's why I am urging voters of Pismo to support Erik Howell and Sheila Blake for council. Not only will they better represent the concerns of Pismo's residents, but they will encourage a new cooperative spirit in the city's government. That would be very refreshing.
