Men Looking in Holes

January 29, 2015  |  BLO BLOG, sewer  |  No Comments

If you’re lucky enough to have a pump on your street, this is a familiar site. Men looking down into the concrete bomb-shelter-like hole in the middle of the street. Seems they’re are testing it today, pumping water and seeing where it goes. Hopefully it works!

Looking forward to it being done, but not looking forward to the monthly bill.

The CSD has decided not to air the candidate forum on Channel 20 and did not respond when asked why. Topics discussed are imperative to the future of Los Osos and should be seen by as wide an audience as possible.

You can watch it here, but if you feel it should be shown on channel 20 contact the CSD.

Peter Bresler Candidate Los Osos CSD

October 17, 2014  |  BLO BLOG, community, csd  |  No Comments

dr. bresler csd candidate
Dr. Bresler has lived in Los Osos since 1980 and is working with Los Osos FLOW to explore means to combine the service areas of Golden State Water and the CSD. In his time on the Central Coast, Dr. Bresler help found the San Luis Chamber Orchestra and has served on the medical staffs of both local hospitals. He is familiar with building codes, as he acted as general contractor for several property remodels.

Aside from water issues, he sees most pressing Los Osos needs as the unpaved streets, missing sidewalks, and the lack of parks for the community. Urging for more local control, Dr. Bresler states, “Los Osos is now at the mercy of San Luis Obispo County for all public amenities. It is time for us to take the reins and further improve our community.”
