Public Comment:

a.       Chris Fitz:  Mr. Fitz addressed the board requesting simpler language for the June ballot.  The ballot measure should be a simple yes or no vote.   Mr. Fitz argued that the “repeal” measure confuses everything.  He further argued that it was confusing and it was not legal because you cannot repeal a measure that does not exist because it has been stayed.

b.      Brian Finnegan:  Addressed the Board in response to Mr. Fitz’s public comment.  Mr. Finnegan argued that it cannot be removed because it is not on the Agenda. Further, that the referendum is not out of the legal woods yet – that it has been challenged because it had not been circulated in Spanish.

 

BOARD ACTION:  County Counsel Charles McKee advised the Board that he is in agreement with Mr. Finnegan in that it cannot be removed but that the Board can direct that the matter be brought back.

 

c.       Hans Jongens:  Addressed the Board advising that there were only two measures.  Further that he still takes issue to being called a “moron” as referenced in his public comment earlier this month when he referenced and editorial by Jay Brown.  Mr. Jongens further advised that the people should have a right to vote but that English is the language of this country.

d.      Julie Engel:  Addressed the Board to advise that she attended the hearing that was held this morning and that she did not believe that there was any question regarding the initiative being on the ballot.

e.       Jan Mitchell:  Addressed the Board to advise that all of the membership fully supports the LandWatch position.

0125.000                           Agreement (A-10193) between the County of Monterey and Westmed Ambulance, Inc., substantially in the form attached with a change in paragraph 5 to provide that the County shall pay Westmed Ambulance, Inc., $150,000 per year for the provision of ambulance service in Big Sur; and
