Thank you for this! Lost video feed during Mike Pasner’s comments….can hear audio, tho…
Thank you for taking time out to get the NID meeting streamed. I’m a stay at home dad, this was the best way I could attend. Thanks again.
This is what happened in the NID Board meeting after Yubanet quit livestreaming. Rem the GM was on vacation so his replacement gave the general managers report. Then each boardmember spoke. Check out John Drew at 10 minutes into the video and Scott Miller who speaks after him. John was rude to some of the public who commented earlier in the meeting. In the last 5 minutes he threatens to publicly call out people who write letters to the editor and call them liars on livestream for misstating facts. This is a guy who said the dam would help salmon at the last board meeting. Scott Miller was outraged that someone said that a 60 foot wide pipeline was slated to run along Dog Bar Road. Apparently it is a 60 foot easement for a pipeline. Instead of noting the difference or that either way it is impacted property, he goes on to throw a hissy fit. Are these good public servants? Do they deserve Your vote?
At 31:55 John Drew got up and left the room to protest a pledge to allegiance to the Earth. No one got up and left when the Pledge of Allegiance was said. Why is John Drew seemingly intolerant of other points of view, especially of his constituents.
When in Rome do as the Romans do!
It is disrespectful to protest at a Public meeting the Flag of US. The building of a new Dam on the Bear River has been a plan of the District scene the 1920s! This project will go through extensive review by many agencies and NGOs. To disrespect and disrupt a public meeting serves no one.
The District mission is to serve the lands within the boundaries of NID. If the District does not or is unable to provide a full supply of water it controls under its current water rights, others can file a protest and it is very possible that waters from the Yuba and Bear could be TAKEN and put to benfical use elsewhere! !
If this should happen the District is required to prorate the water that is currently delivered to farmers like Mr Mike Pasner. Yes a portion of his water could be taken and sold to urban areas in the boundaries of NID
SO BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU ASK FOR.
