To annex or not to annex, that is going to be the question tonight at the Manila Community Center at 6:30pm. The Times Standard screwed up by naming Fairhaven Fairfield, not once, but twice. Danco needs to have Manila take over the infrastructure of Samoa for their proposed project to move forward. Fairhaven participating will be a long shot as far as I have observed while a Director on the Samoa Peninsula Fire District. But there could be a mutual agreement of Fairhaven and Samoa residents creating their own Community Service District. I guess I will find out more tonight and if it is interesting, report tomorrow of the talks.
Update: The Manila Community Service District voted 5-0 to move forward with more feasibility studies on potential annexation as long as there is no costs created by the process. Samoa Pacific will have to fund all studies. 3rd District Supervisor Mark Lovelace was present with addional information from LAFCO. (Is Lovelace at every meeting everywhere? Seems like it. Hats off to him. You would think he would be taking a well deserved break!)
