Re: “Los Osos approves new GM

Karen Garcia, I called you after your last story to correct you on the false assertion that the district has anything to do with the wastewater project. It was false then, it's still false. The wastewater facility belongs to the County of SLO, the district doesn't manage it or have ny "hurdles" to overcome associated with it.

The district is primarily a water company (they contract with Cal Fire, and perform some lighting and drainage functions) for half the community. It has failing infrustructure and management responsibilities associated with the court ordered adjudicated basin. Implementation of the the projects associated with the Basin Management Plan are costly and controversial.

Their financial health has always been a concern as previous General Managers have had weak accounting skills.

I'm pleased they have chosen Mr. Munds to tackle the issues at hand.

Re: “Sucker punch

BTW, Ogren remains the highest paid General Manager of all the CSD's and more than most city managers in this county. Retirement will be sweet as he kayaks off into the sunset with his lucrative public funded retirement accounts from PERS and SLO County. He will drink Justin wines, served up by his soon to be wife, Director of Community Affairs for the oak tree killers, Justin Vineyards & Winery in Paso Robles, Maria Kelly...the story of their affair Velie broke in 2011.

Re: “Sucker punch

Velie also beat New Times and all other news outlets to the Ogren story.

Re: “Asleep at the wheels of justice

Pismo is outlawing Vacation Rentals too, they really don't want Valley vacationers unless they stay in hotels.

Re: “Arroyo Grande Council to disband traffic, parks, and historical resource commissions

If the city want's to save another $30,000 a year it should discontinue health benefits for the council. All members have access to health insurance through their (or their spouses) place of employment.
