City of Angels Camp replies to Loan question

   We asked the Angels Camp City Administrator McHatten why the loan payment principal owed to the water department from the sewer department was not paid this year.

   In fact, only an interest payment was made.  McHatten told us that it had actually been approved during last years budget hearings. He also said they needed the money to pay for the Sprayfield improvement project and it is viewed as a one-time event.

  Apparently Mr. Lynch, who pointed it out, had forgotten the fact that he had voted to approve that budget.

Dixon Collins, big Developer appointed to Angels Camp Planning Commission

   In a surprise to most, Dixon Collins, active developer in the area, Collins Development, was appointed to the Angels Camp Planning Commission.

   Is it true what many have told us; that he is intending to push his own projects forward and those of his friends?  This is a big concern to residents who know he likes getting things his own way.

     We can personally attest that this is true of Mr. Collins. Which church does he attend????
