February 5, 2019 - How is the county doing financially? Where does it stand on fire safety preparation? What are they going to do with all the new room tax money? Is there any hope for county roads? How will Mariposa address the homeless problem? Will we ever have more affordable housing?
These are just some of the topics that could be covered in the State of the County address by Supervisor Rosemarie Smallcombe on Saturday, February 9 at 9:30 A.M. at the Miner’s Roadhouse located at 5159 Hwy. 140 in Mariposa.
Smallcombe has just started her second term as county supervisor. During her first term she was heavily involved with a number of county issues and especially with a state taskforce to deal with dead trees and wildfire danger.
She has seen the effect of fires and floods and how they impact residents. She has also seen the effect of disasters on Yosemite, along with what a forced federal government shut down can do to a large community dependent on Yosemite for its livelihood.
Smallcombe is also very interested in healthcare and working with Fremont Hospital to help get a new hospital built.
There are big challenges ahead for Mariposa as the economy tries to recover from floods, fires, and government shutdowns. This will be a good time to hear of plans being formulated by the county and ask your questions.
This meeting is open to the public and everyone is invited to attend. Free coffee and water will be provided. If you would like to order breakfast for yourself, please arrive at 9am. This event is being sponsored by the Mariposa Democratic Club. They will have a brief business meeting that morning. The club is also accepting memberships for 2019 for the nominal sum of $10 per person or $15 a family. For more information on the club, please visit our website at: MariposaDemocraticClub.org.
