Occupying Logan Building again?

EDITOR:

What would possess the county to lease the Logan Building again? Did the county not learn its lesson the first time after wasting over a million dollars of taxpayer money? Does the county need yet another — a third Grand Jury report — on this problematic building? How does moving the Mental Health Department to remote Diamond Springs serve the local population? What ulterior motives are going on here with our Board of Supervisors?

    Hillary asks, "How does moving the Mental Health Department to remote Diamond Springs serve the local population?" Diamond springs is not "remote" to me or to the population centers of Cameron Park or El Dorado Hills. It is actually closer to the western EDC population clusters. It's probably a toss-up for convenience/inconvenience. As for other Logan problems - no opinion.

    I gathered from public comment at yesterday's BOS meeting that the Diamond Springs v. Placerville accessibility issue arises from the fact that a significant % of clients use public transportation to get to the facility. Many come from Pollock Pines. Having to make several connections with the attendant wait times, in future it will take those people 90 minutes to get to Diamond Springs.

    Evelyn, are you saying a significant percentage of Pollock Pines is in need of the mental health facility? Something in the water?
