Supervisor John Peschong wants to hear San Miguel residents’ concerns

New San Luis Obispo County Supervisor John Peschong will hold office hours at the Parish Hall behind Mission San Miguel this Thursday afternoon from 2 to 4 p.m.

The 1st District supervisor will be available on the first Thursday afternoon of each month to address concerns of people in his district.

School committee

The San Miguel Joint Union School District has formed an oversight committee to monitor funds and expenditures of the bond that voters approved for the district Nov. 8.

Members of the committee must live within the boundaries and represent a cross-section of the district — businesses, senior citizens, a taxpayer organization and parents/guardians. If you are interested, call Jan Brown, administrative assistant to the superintendent, at 805-467-3216, ext. 203. The committee will meet two to four times a year to review bond finances.

Road work

Stage 1, Phase 1 of the Highway 101 project from San Marcos Road through San Miguel and Camp Roberts has begun with preparation of northbound lanes at the South Mission Street overpass. Included in this part of Phase 1 is paving Cemetery Road and work on the 10th Street overpass, which will include its structure and foundation, installing a drainage system and paving north- and southbound ramps. Watch for signs indicating detours as the work is being done.
