In the last 12 months, the water district has taken great strides to reduce the risk of flooding in vulnerable communities along Coyote Creek.
A testy discussion between SCVWD board and staff prompted an audit to delve into allegations of improper payments to one of the district’s contractors.
Tuesday night’s special election ended with Cindy Chavez and Teresa Alvarado placing first and second, respectively, in the primary for the county supervisor seat formerly held by George Shirakawa Jr. But while each candidate hosted parties to celebrate making it to the runoff, one of Chavez’s handlers was less than thrilled to allow media access.
