Reading Time: 2 minutes

Sorry for the copy quality.  The above page was in a Mariposa County LAFCO TRAINING presentation to the Mariposa Board of Supervisors on September 26th, 2018.   (This LAFCO TRAINING presentation had been continued from the April 18th and June 27th, 2018 meetings.)

Here’s the website:     MARIPOSA COUNTY LAFCO 2018 CALENDAR

ANYWAY, had just started looking over the material as to SPECIAL DISTRICTS (which are supposed to have “limited boundaries” you know) in MARIPOSA COUNTY that were subject to this LAFCO authority when the description of our LAKE DON PEDRO  COMMUNITY SERVICES DISTRICT (LDPCSD) on page 11 jumped out at me….. (so naturally, I will emphasize that information to make it JUMP OUT AT YOU! lol)


“LDP Subdivision properties in both

Mariposa and Tuolumne Counties”

That description may be technically correct but it is extremely misleading and far from accurate if the Board of Supervisors (or anyone else for that matter) is truly interested as to why the LDPCSD has been a dysfunctional and corrupt SPECIAL DISTRICT since formed by the LAFCOs of both Mariposa and Tuolumne Counties in August 1980.

(Our district’s’ EXPANDED ANNEXED AREAS of water service beyond the subdivision is precisely WHY THE MANDATORY CUSTOMERS OF THE LDP SUBDIVISION HAVE BEEN PAYING TOO MUCH FOR THEIR WATER since day one!)   The above description was simply how the LAKE DON PEDRO CSD was sold to the public and other government entities, however, the actual district that was established was — (years before formation) — FAR OUTSIDE THE WATER APPROVED LDP SUBDIVISION.

So a more accurate description of this unorganized, sprawling, and unethically managed SPECIAL DISTRICT under MARIPOSA LAFCOs authority might more accurately be described as:

“The LDP Subdivision properties in both Mariposa and Tuolumne Counties for which a surface water treatment plant was designed and constructed to serve Merced River per State Water License 11395 to that PLACE OF  USE residential subdivision, PLUS, thousands of additional acres LAFCOs later ANNEXED INTO THEIR MUTUALLY FORMED SPECIAL DISTRICT OUTSIDE THE APPROVED SUBDIVISION which require an extremely expensive groundwater substitution program subsidized by the mandatory property owners of the LDP subdivision.”

Or something like that, lol.


My best to you and yours, Lew
