Nielsen to mark debut with big splash

By DAVID RICHIE

Some step tentatively into troubled waters, but new El Dorado Irrigation District director J. Mark Nielsen is jumping feet-first into the political pool at EID.

The first EID board meeting of 1988 will feature seven proposals from Nielsen that would not only send shock waves rippling throughout the district but could also ultimately reshape EID’s boundaries and way of doing business.

If Nielsen has his way, the ’88 board will meet only once a month, and after voter approval next November cut itself from seven directors down to five.

Nielsen is also requesting that the directors consider a flat rate of $500 per month compensation; eliminate standing committees; and direct EID staff to report on the feasibility of annexing all land within the districts sphere of influence and converting from bimonthly to monthly billing for water and sewer service …

Paying Off Time Checks

The El Dorado Lumber Co., notwithstanding the unfortunate predicament it finds itself in due to the tie-up occasioned by the failure of the California Safe Deposit and Trust Company, is rapidly paying off its time checks and on last Saturday over $15,000 was paid out by a local bank to employees of the company, clearing up most of the October checks. The company is shipping carloads of lumber daily to obtain money for this purpose …

Saturday last officials from the California Canners’ Association, the California Pine Box and Lumber Company and the Oakland Box Company came up from below and proceeded to Camino to place a value on the planing mill and box factory at that place, which plant, we understand, is the property of the California Pine Box and Lumber Company, and is to be taken over by the El Dorado Lumber Company under a contract …
