I like to advertise opportunities for KUSP listeners to get directly and personally involved with the governmental decision making process, and so I am happy to tell you that there are lots of interesting meetings to attend today.

Tonight at 7:00 o’clock, the Soquel Creek Water District is making a presentation on water challenges in the Mid-County area of Santa Cruz County. The meeting will be held at the Aptos Community United Methodist Church, located at 221 Thunderbird Drive in Aptos.

Also tonight, at 7:15, the group called Aptos Local Economies (sometimes also called “Save Aptos”) is meeting at the Aptos Grange Hall, 2555 Mar Vista Drive in Aptos. The focus of this group is the proposed expansion of the Safeway Store, and the reconfiguration of the Rancho Del Mar Shopping Center. That is a big issue for Aptos, and visitors are welcome at the meeting tonight.

Finally, the Santa Cruz City Council is meeting at 2:30 in the afternoon, and at 7:00 p.m., to discuss water issues. The Council will be making appointments to its Water Supply Advisory Committee at the 2:30 session. At 7:00 o’clock, the Council will be considering actions related to the current drought conditions affecting the City. Those actions could profoundly affect everyone who depends on water from the City of Santa Cruz. You can get more information at
