Supervisors Vote Against Sending a Letter to Caltrans About Alleged Miranda Water Theft
The Humboldt County Board of Supervisors voted against sending a letter to Caltrans about the theft of water by one of the subcontractors working on a job. Up to 11,000 gallons of water was allegedly stolen on September 21 by Myers and Sons Construction. Although the Board agreed that this was a serious issue, they believed that “Caltrans needs no prodding” to deal appropriately with the situation.
A letter from Caltrans noted that they had quickly dismissed the responsible crew from the current job and “directed Myers and Sons Construction to provide receipts for all of their water draws now and in the future.”
Supervisor Estelle Fennel dissented against the Board’s decision.
