Is EID willing to throw the EID Pioneer residents under the bus?
My residency in El Dorado County goes back to a “gunny sack and barbwire day” when EID Manager Harry Dunlop was known for building water transmission lines into rural areas, against unbelievable odds. These areas had self-reliant septic systems and water sources on/or nearby their residents. Harry went to those people and stated that if they went on the EID transmission line they would be helping EID, the county, and they would never have to pay more than a “Flat Ag rate” for water. I remember those same early residents chipping in and worked for eight years losing the SOFAR battle for sustainable water for EID and the county.
Don’t get me wrong, Harry Dunlop was and still is a good man. Jim Abercrombie is another good guy with an unachievable job.
Getting back to making EID productive. It’s going to hurt, and EID will need some solid support. Transparency and accountability is the only productive way we can continue the admirable work of good people. Let’s see if the new developers and speculators will support EID after the long time EID ratepayers and supporters are thrown under the bus.
