Many people seem very happy with the recent decision by the Cayucos Sanitary District board not to take a minor ownership position in a new sewer treatment plant with Morro Bay appointees in control.
To give most control in a new treatment plant to the revolving door of political aspirants Morro Bay attracts for the next 50-plus years would be a terrible idea for Cayucos.
No one has thought up such a bad idea since a few new-in-towns wanted to form a community services district in Cayucos some years ago. Los Osos formed one about the same time, and look how well it has turned out for them.
It is just nice to see that collective decisions can still be made based on what is best for the community, and not just the almighty dollar.
It appears to me that lately Morro Bay has hired someone who sits around thinking up ways to create bad blood throughout the community. Morro Bay’s proposed plant building/operations structure would have paved the way for problems well into the future, and it is great Cayucos took a pass.
