Press-Banner – San Lorenzo Valley Water District considers lawsuit against director

We’ve had quite a wild ride from our current SLVWD board members. They have doubled the price we pay for water, while we are footing the legal bills to defend a board member charged in a conflict of interest case.

Well, instead of focusing on providing water service, the SLVWD is considering more litigation, that will, again, be paid for by water rate-payers. This time it is to silence Bill Smallman, who saw it fit to let rate-payers know how their money is being spent… especially in light of the litigation rate payers are paying for around Terry Vierra.

The original judgement against Vierra was $10,000… now ratepayers are footing a bill of roughly $200,000!  (see below for more news links covering this)

During last week’s meeting, held in downtown Boulder Creek, the board decided to take matters behind closed doors!

Chicago Style Hot Dog in Boulder Creek?… YES! Fifi’s Hot Dogs

We now have a great new hot dog stand here in Boulder Creek. Right now Fifi’s Hot Dogs is only open on weekends, but they are planning to be open all week in a couple of months.

Fifi’s is a food cart located right in downtown Boulder Creek, beside Agz Ragz and across the street from New Leaf and The Red Pearl.

We went and tried the food, and it was one amazing hot dog… with very friendly service.

See pictures below for the menu and a real deal Chicago Style hot dog.
