The good, the bad and the probable

The good first: folks with septic don't need to wory about new regulations (Assembly Bill 885)that would have you paying for an inspection every 5 years, or maybe even a new system. Stricter rules were put on "hold" for now. That's about 25,000 families in Nevada County that can breathe a sigh of relief. A bill is being drafted that could counter the regs if needed in future.
The bad: If state budget problems don't improve soon, we can kiss the "free chipping program" goodbye for 2009. Apparently Nevada County hasn't even been able to pay the bill for 2008 yet.
The probable: We will have a very high fire danger this year. So prepare to get rid of those dried out piles waiting for chipping yourself. They present a huge danger sitting right on the roadside where they can catch a cigarette butt real easy. Maybe we can all ban together and get a private company to come down there and do a group rate. Anyone interested? Call me at 265-8680, and we'll see what we can arrange.
