We are making progress on our goal of keeping the Sweetwater Cal Fire station open year-round for fire and emergency services. The latest news is that there seems to be a funding source. A big thank you to Supervisor Dave Cortese. However, we’re not done yet.
We hope that the last step to final approval will be at the June Board meeting:
Board of Supervisors Regular Meeting
June 9, 2015
09:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Chambers - Board of Supervisors
70 W. Hedding St.
San Jose, CA 95110
We are requesting that you do either or both of the following, whether you are a local resident or not, because this is a year-round public safety issue for all traveling Mines Road, Del Puerto Canyon Rd and San Antonio Valley Road. Also, with the drought conditions there is a fire issue.
- Go to the meeting to add your support.
- Email or phone the following three supervisors to request they vote Yes on funding to keep Cal Fire Sweetwater station open year-round:
Supervisor Cindy Chavez, 408-299-5020. firstname.lastname@example.orgSupervisor Ken Yeager, 408-299-5040, email@example.com
Supervisor Joe Simitian, 408-299-5050, firstname.lastname@example.org
The Cal Fire Sweetwater Station is located at the junction of State Route 130 and Mines Road.
Whether you are a resident, a landowner, or a visitor using the roads in this area, you will benefit from having local emergency services available year-round. See the petition text for details. (The petition is closed at this time.)
