At least 65 residents attended the first meeting that Mayor Jerry Sanders convened to gather input on the city’s plan to cut water deliveries when supplies are likely restricted in July.
The city called the meeting the “Mayor’s Water Allocations Workshop.” Notably missing last night in Otay Mesa: The mayor.
Bill Harris, a Sanders spokesman, said the mayor wanted the public to have the chance to give direct input to the city staff developing the water cut plan. “He is going to be actively engaged in the allocation methodology,” Harris said. “It’s not any kind of stepping away from the topic.”
Sanders won’t attend tonight’s meeting (he’s in Washington, D.C.) nor on Thursday.
Tonight’s discussion starts at 6 p.m. at the Rancho Peñasquitos Branch Library; Thursday night’s discussion begins at the same time in the Balboa Park War Memorial Building, Room 3.
