The MAC meeting was held Thursday at the I.O.O.F. Hall because of the Zero party entertainment practice at the clubhouse. Carla Doshas was sworn into office. The Oakdale Rural Fire Department sent board member Sherry Schlegel to report on the brown outs. She told of Station 2 and 3 being unstaffed every two days, rotating between the stations, starting October 1st. This is the only way the district could save money but keep in operation. Brian Sutton from Stanislaus County Animal Control told of no citations or dog bites the past two months. A new shelter will be built, with ground to be broken at the end of the year. Keep current on your animal’s rabies shots! Raul Melendez, MAC Coordinator, told of Shavon Haskell being appointed to the board again and that leaves one space vacant. Sheriff Adam Christianson spoke on the budget, no lay offs of patrolmen; they took money from other areas. The crime rate is low in the unincorporated areas. CHP patrolman C. Leon said that the Highway patrol would watch the school traffic, as complaints have come in about speeding and lack of stopping at stop signs. The County Code Enforcer gave a power point presentation on what they do. There will be a waste tire recycling October 24th at the County Agriculture Facility on Cornucopia Way, Modesto. You can bring in 9 tires and your proof of residence.

Condolences go out to Jerry Dickens and his family on the death of his mom, Helen.
