What kind of people scramble to get new well permits to irrigate additional acreage of wine grapes when they are aware that our mutually shared water basin is declining drastically and people are suffering because of it?
I submit that these are the same people who inundate their neighborhoods with loud amplified music every weekend. These are the people who have no concern for the welfare of their neighbors, for the very water they drink and for the peace and quiet of rural Paso Robles. In the , the grand jury >reported on the need for an updated events code.
County planners were said to be working on an updated events code this summer and the county has until Sept. 5 to respond to the report. I hope the county Board of Supervisors will first come up with an urgency ordinance to mitigate the decline of the water basin, but also not forget that 6,000 rural residents deserve to live in a place where their peace is not disturbed by a few uncaring winery owners.
