Q&A: What does the future hold at TUD?

Tuolumne Utilities District General Manager Tom Scesa and spokeswoman Lisa Westbrook sat down with opinion page editor Craig Cassidy this week to discuss a range of topics, including the district’s water supply, TUD’s financial situation, infrastructure needs, possible rate increases, and long-range planning.

For background: Part of the conversation focused on water stored behind Pinecrest and Lyons reservoirs, which usually fill to the brim (referred to here as “fill and spill”).

The two reservoirs, while storing water for 44,000 Tuolumne County residents, are owned and operated by Pacific Gas and Electric and used for hydroelectric power generation.

The first part of this hour-long interview ran Friday.


Opinion: Another reason to get vaccinated

County and state public health officials say we’re in the second year of a whooping cough epidemic.


Opinion: Making peace with SPD


Opinion: MedCat not impervious to budget scrutinizing

This morning, Tuolumne County Sheriff Jim Mele will ask the county Board of Supervisors for permission to use money from the county’s asset-forfeiture fund to buy a $270,000 armored car.


Opinion: Say yes to vaccination

Last week marked this 60th anniversary of the approval of the polio vaccine.

It also was the week in which a legislative battle was heating up in Sacramento over a bill that would require all but a very few children to receive standard childhood vaccinations before enrolling in school. So, what better time to reiterate the importance of getting children vaccinated for preventable diseases.
