Laetitia Ag Cluster Update
It has been confirmed that the Planning Commission meeting will be delayed
until later this summer, because the County has demanded a second opinion,
called a “peer review”, from another hydrogeologist, due to the many doubts

good job of collecting all the necessary data.
Be assured that your money is being conservatively managed for the greatest
