STORMWATER FEE BALLOT MEASURE
Recent sinkholes, disrupting our lives in Moraga, have dramatically shown that our storm drain pipes, laid down under our roads and parking lots 45-60 years ago are nearing the end of their useful lives. Since there is no revenue stream to do the repairs, the Town Council has authorized the creation of the mail-in ballot measure. This month there will be numerous presentations about the problem and the solution. The Town website has a lot of information on it, including a list of Frequently Asked Questions, two 45 minute videos of Public Information Meetings via YouTube and a chart of the proposed Storm Water Fee Rate Schedule.
No more sinkholes! Become informed then vote via mail-in ballot between the end of March and May 15th.
FINALLY! A CENTRAL SITE FOR VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIESAt the core of Moraga is its spirit of helping out, whether with time or money, or both. This can be seen in the schools, Scouts, service organizations, the Rheem Theatre, Town Council and town commissions; people are always stepping up and into places to serve. At last, there is one place to find those places to serve, and to announce needs for volunteers to a wide audience. Moraga Citizens Network has established a “Craig’s List for Volunteers” right here on this website. Check it out, and come back often!!
