The San Simeon Community Services District is seeking applicants for an empty seat on its board of directors created when Dee Dee Ricci resigned due to health.
Those interested in serving must submit application papers by 9 a.m. Wednesday, June 5, at the district office at 111 Pico Avenue, San Simeon. For details, call 927-4778 or go to the office.
As of Tuesday, May 21, Robert McLaughlin, primary San Simeon representative on the North Coast Advisory Council and a former SSCSD director, had applied. Applicants must live within the district’s boundaries and be registered to vote in San Simeon.
The district provides drinkable water, treats sewage, maintains some streets and street lights and handles other tasks for the community of about 460 people. The ocean-view town straddles both sides of Highway 1.
Most San Simeon residents are retired or work on ranches or in service industries. Water supply is an ongoing problem, and a water-shortage-triggered building moratorium has been in place since April 1988. New, cutting-edge sewage-treating equipment recently was installed to produce wastewater that’s purer, making disposal safer; the water is safe for landscape irrigation and other non-potable uses.
