    Evelyn...this group thought it was okay for Harper and Jaggers to have nine people total (including those two) out of Pollock Pines give their input for a whole community about Parks and Trails up here. Nine people are in the Master final for Pollock Pines..as expected of Harper and her closest groupies...they didnt notice--didnt care that the workshop was empty of people. This is also how we got the ugly blue sign--nine -ten people decided for all of us-went before the design team-bam. If someone is on any board more than a year...and they still do not listen to the public...they should be dismissed. Im hoping new supervisors will "dismiss" lots of people. We are promised a park by general plan in Pollock...the area for the 26 acres--was doomed from the beginning--so they decided to pick on the little league field as a community Park...a small one--while we wait for what was promised. We already have trails up here--check the history. To put in bike lanes--they would have to remove all the trees on Pony--take back easement...and flatten the roads. Where is the money coming from? A small group of people feel they have the right to decide for the tax payers (They dont even care if the property belongs to a private citizen.). Putting a sidewalk down Forebay? Come on-- the slant of decline...lots of bucks. And none of it would bring jobs...oh wait the CSD dream...a few select would get saleries...like Cameron Park. Same names circulate for many of these advisory committees and subcommittees...CEDAPP, CEDAC, Chambers, Parks and trails...Apple hill groups...on and on...same faces...same attitudes. There is no money--unless the resident of El Dorado wants to foot the bill. Unelected people should not have the right to do what they want. Issues of taxes should always go before the people for final say--always. These sneaky little groups dont care. If someone from one of these groups is running for anything...please read about what groups they work with and on what--before you decide on whom to vote for. My best friend and I come from different political views...so when she tells me to vote on something...love her to death--I read everythin I can on it. To decide for myself. Read for yourselves.

    These small groups no longer want the Brown Act. No county involvement. These groups will still get "favors" from the same people...they just dont have to be accountable. Nothing changes--accept the accountability. Free range of ideas...lolololol Stop drinking the wine...lololol Read. "Option 1: Dissolve the Trails Advisory Committee and SPTC Oversight Committee. The Trails Advisory Committee may establish a Trails Community Group where a free-range of ideas may be expressed, without limitations. Any items discussed at the meetings would be taken to Parks and Recreation Commission and/or to staff prior to submission to the Board of Supervisors for consideration. Meeting notices, agendas and minutes would be managed by meeting attendees, with no County involvement. - See more at: http://www.inedc.com/1-7922#sthash.7V4RZ42K.dpuf"

    What is the topic for the meeting? The Board of Supervisors should require their Departments to disclose when public meeting are planned if to satisfy Local /State specific requirements or Grants. The Board of Supervisors look as bad as EID. All we ask: Transparency and Accountability. Ernie Louis
