The Sonoma County Taxpayers' Association opposes the initia- tive sponsored by Professional Engineers in California Govern- ment (PECG) which is a blatant attack on private sector engineering professionals. Passage of this proposal could well result in the exclusive use of state employees for design engineering work on state funded projects. Since reduced government is the main factor that will boost the economy, it is not economically smart to take these contracts out of the hands of the private sector to create more government bureaucracy. Government should not be competing-- it is uneconomical and wrong. This initiative will cost an estimated 100,000 private sector jobs in the first two years. Additionally, th private sector must stay within its contracted costs, government has no such restrictions. It will cost more to have government do these jobs. History proves this. Under this initiative, the State Controller's office will be inun- dated with requests for approval of contracts and contract amend- ments. The State Controller's office would have to hire 12,000 government employees just to review these projects alone--12,000 liabilities on the taxpayers. This will only add more government and certainly would hold up the process. Since this is not the State Controller's expertise, they will not be able to effectively evaluate contracts. This does not make sense. Needed projects such as schools, hospitals, roads, water treatment facilities, housing, mass transit and water supply facilities would be delayed, up to an estimated seven years--oRen with serious results. Decisions would be unfair, as all state overhead burden costs are not figured into the analysis of the projects, such as timeliness for project completion, qualifications, productivity 'and availability of civil service employees and the need for specialists on projects. These are real costs! How can these not be considered. Putting this initiative into the California Constitution would cause the provisions of the initiative to be very difficult to amend in the future. This is very inefficient and could cause very costly future difficulties. Due to all of these problems, the Sonoma County Taxpayers Association strongly opposes this fatally flawed and destructive initiative and urge you to do the same. Jean-Marie Foster, Executive Director Neighbors angry over 24-hour noise Editor-. Is Redwood Empire Lumber Mill exempt from Sonona County noise abatement regulations? We have lived here for many years and mill noise during normal daytime working hours is a tolerable fact of life, but this summer Redwood Empire is running 24 hours a day, six days a week. While the noise is not terribly loud, it IS terribly pervasive. For us, sitting outside on peaceful summer evenings is a thing of the past. We would like to know where the mill owner lives because we would like to take turns running a leaf blower near his house 120 hours a week for months on end.

We hoped to receive answers to our concerns regarding the Martinez VA Re- placement Hospital which "was" to be built at ravis AFB. Now the funds are =fenced". Is the replacement hospital another false promise to the 440,000 veterans in Northern California who are left without VA Inpatient care? And, you say, =I'm in the fight of my life over the Travis VA Hospital". Unfortunately, since ground breaking in 1994, some of our veterans of Northern California have lost that battle. How many more must die for lack of adequate VA inpatient services? We veterans of Northern California need this Replacement Hospital at Travis AFB and won't take, =No" for an answer. President Clinton sent Vice President Al Gore for the ground breaking in 1994. It's time that we see more than dirt flying. You said you were a fighter and that's what Boxer stood for. So, let's see you prove yourself on this life threatening issue. Edna C. Barnes Solano County, Veterans Service Officer, Retired Reader says events hurt city image Editor. Cloverdale has made a lot of progress in modernizing its image. However, there are a few choices that are counterproductive to progressive marketing and development of our town. They make the town seem unenlightened. They are: the gun shows; glorifying Black Bart; and the frog jumping spectacle. These events really hurt Cloverdale's image. Let's re-think them. Sincerely, Polly Frenaye-Hutcheson, 17 year resident in Cloverdale Development Agency's 2 year budget adopted The Community Development Agency's two-year budget adopt- ed by the City Council provides funding for four separate pro- grams for a total anticipated ex- penditure of $463,534 the first year and $497,625 the second year. The program for economic de- velopment will see the position of Susie Leach as coordinator reduced to half time. According to Agency Director Joe Heckel, the Economic Development Com- mission (EDC) will continue to operate but at a reduced funding level. The program will receive $69,000 in 1997-98 and $74,000 in 1998-'99. This includes $24,000 each year for the Cham- ber of commerce, $10,000 the first year and $15,000 the sec- ond for nuisance abatement and $35,000 each year for economic de;elopment strategy. The EDC, in operation for the past two years, will continue its efforts in promotion and adver- Using, business attraction and retention under the new two year funding plan. The Agency has allocated $50,000 the first year and $100,000 the second year to en- gineering plans for the restruc- turing of Cloverdale Blvd. be- tween Lake and Third streets. Debt service on the Agency's bond issue to finance theDown- town Specific Plan amounts to $256,000 the first year and $275,000 the second. The Briarwood water line project will cost the Agency $334,000 out of the affordable housing fund. Operation and maintenance costs will total $138,534 the first year and $148,625 the second year.
