Tourism, water supplies, budgets, reducing fire risk and honoring veterans are among topics on the agenda for the next Cambria Community Services District directors’ meeting at 12:30 p.m. Thursday, May 23, at the Veterans Memorial Building, 1000 Main St.
According to board President Michael Thompson, directors are to see “Korea Remembered,” a five-minute video about Korean veterans filmed by 16-year-old Cambria videographer Kyle Plummer. He recently screened the video in Washington, D.C., as one of five winning presentations in the “Heroes Remembered: Voices of Korean War Veterans” filmmaking contest. Veterans featured in the film have been invited to the district’s meeting, to be honored there with a short cake-and-coffee reception.
Another presentation is to outline the background, responsibilities and activities of the Cambria Tourism Board.
Then district directors are to work on various topics, including:• Review and consider approving the Water Supply and Demand Model report, which is issued when the district needs details on whether current water supplies should be sufficient until the next rainy season, given the dry conditions and low rainfall. If not, the district could impose water-bill surcharges for ratepayers who use more than average amounts of water each billing period;
• Launching the 2013 Fire Hazard/Fuel Reduction (weed abatement) program by proclaiming high weeds and accumulated brush are a public nuisance. Targeted properties, as usual, are specific vacant lots near homes or other buildings;
• Consider the district’s draft operating budget for fiscal year 2013-2014;
• Extend intent-to-serve letters for the Kingston Bay Senior Living project on Green Street and the county’s former library site on Cornwall Street; and
• Discuss scheduling a series of evening study sessions, with the first likely to be in June.
