Understanding the 1966 Fourth Agreement and the 1996 Agreement
I don’t understand is why the San Francisco ratepayers, water users, and the powerful politicians who call San Francisco their home aren’t angry. The local city leaders get it. The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC), the folks who handle San Francisco’s water supply; they get it. They know what the impact will be on San Francisco’s municipal, commercial, and industrial users, and it is dire.

San Francisco is on the hook for half of our 40% unimpaired flows -  The California State Water Resource Control Board (State Water Board) recently released their final Substitute Environmental Document (SED), which requires the people of the Turlock and Modesto Irrigation Districts (TID, MID) to release an additional 40% unimpaired Tuolumne River water between February and June into the Bay-Delta.
The former Turlock City Council Member, who found $5,000,000 in budget accounts not identified by City Staff during the Great Recession and led the development of an industrial park with high-paying jobs, is running for Congress. Ted Howze broke the news early in an email to TurlockCityNews.com.
On Tuesday night, the Turlock City Council will consider approving a water rate increase on customers that would double their bill over the next five years. The rate hike is to pay for improvements to the City’s drinking water system, including the construction of the $278 million Regional Surface Water Supply Project. Under Prop 218, at least 50 percent plus one written protests must be submitted in writing to stop the water rate increase that the City Council is expected to approve at the Dec. 12 public hearing during the City Council meeting starting at 6 p.m.
The Turlock Fire Department responded to reports of a potential structure fire at WalMart on Thursday morning. Firefighters responded to Walmart, located at 2111 Fulkerth Road, on Thursday, shortly after 8 a.m. Upon arrival, crews encountered light smoke conditions issuing from the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) vents inside the business. Due to the size of the building and the number of HVAC units with potential involvement, multiple crews were needed to rapidly determine the source of the smoke.

Arrests Made in Donnelly Park Robberies

Written by
On Tuesday, the Turlock Police Department informed the community that it was investigating a series of robberies which have taken place at Donnelly Park over the last three weeks. On Wednesday, TPD announced that it had arrested four suspects. There have been three separate robbery cases, all of them having similar characteristics. The robberies have occurred on different days of the week, but all of them have happened between 5:30 p.m. and 6 p.m.
After Mayor Gary Soiseth stripped three appointments from Councilwoman Amy Bublak, and with a reason that’s still drawing questions that Mayor Soiseth won’t answer, Councilman Gil Esquer has apologized to Councilwoman Bublak while saying that he didn’t think it should’ve happened. Most everyone was surprised or shocked when Mayor Soiseth stripped Councilwoman Bublak of three appointments and dispersed one to each of the three Councilmen at the Sept. 26 Turlock City Council meeting. Mayor Soiseth had communicated with Councilmen Bill DeHart, Matthew Jacob, and Gil Esquer before the meeting regarding the decision, while Councilwoman Amy Bublak was not even given a courtesy notice that she would not be serving as a representative of Turlock on some regional committees.
