PUBLIC COMMENT – Supervisor Holmes said he has been involved in fire district affairs, advising the Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCO) is in the process of a municipal services review.  He wants the Board to review the draft review when complete and agendize for discussion.  Supervisors and County Executive were in agreement.  Chris Reams, Board of Directors of the Foresthill Fire Prevention District; Jim Jordan, Newcastle Fire District; Jerry Fogel, President of the Foresthill Fire Fighters Association; spoke about cutbacks in fire services that would affect public safety and requested the Board restore to the Fire Districts funds provided by Proposition 172 for the next fiscal year.  Ian Gow; Fire Chief of Placer Hills Fire and Foresthill Fire and the President of the Western County Fire Chiefs Association, said the significant point is fire districts are desperate and failing and looking at closing stations to manage budgets.  He asked the Board for help stating they are here in cooperation and want to work with the Board.  Elinor Petuskey, Newcastle resident, said she supported the tax increase for the Newcastle Fire Department.  She talked about the lack of transparency and the deceptive nature of the County in regard to the Dewitt Property project and wanted community input.  Ramona Brockman expressed concern of the EIR for the Dewitt Center drafted in 2003.
