Letter to the Citizens of Dixon, 

For more than eight years, a broad-based citizens committee appointed by the Dixon City Council studied the critical issue of how best Dixon could address its wastewater (sewer) service problem. They studied the science, the regulations, technologies, costs, and system improvement needs. The City Council has received their input and has hired specialized consultants to refine the project plans, calculate estimated costs, and prepare all of the complex technical, financial, and environmental documents needed to take the next steps toward resolving this long existing problem. 

 The Dixon Positive Action Committee (DPAC) is a group of Dixon residents committed to helping our community be the best it can be: encouraging informed debate, supporting responsible and reasonable leaders, promoting positive change.

 At this time, DPAC intends to thoroughly review all of the information and documentation. Our goal is to discuss the pros and cons of the proposed wastewater system upgrades and the associated costs.  DPAC encourages all Dixon residents to do the same. 

Many of the documents are on the City of Dixon’s Website:  www.ci.dixon.ca.us.

The City’s page for Wastewater is:  http://www.ci.dixon.ca.us/index.aspx?nid=190

Documents for your consideration are:

1) November 2013 Proposed Rate Increases

2) November 2013 Wastewater Rate Study

3) Wastewater 2013 Design Report – Final Draft.

The Dixon Positive Action Committee’s website www.DixonPAC.com
will have the same information and documentation for you to read. If you have any questions, please email us at:dixonPAC@sbcglobal.net. 

Thank you,

Warren Salmons, Janice Beaman

Mary Ann Courville, Herb Cross, and Yvonne McCluskey on behalf of the Dixon Positive Action Committee

"Documents for your consideration are: 1) November 2013 Proposed Rate Increases 2) November 2013 Wastewater Rate Study 3) Wastewater 2013 Design Report – Final Draft." Hahahaha. Those are the city's documents. What do you expect to learn from these documents, the truth? Your council and the city’s consultants want YOUR MONEY for a $30 million boondoggle project. They wanted your money in 2006 for another wasteful project. Remember?? It was under the “leadership” of Warren Salmons, Janice Beaman and Mary Ann Courville, the signers of this letter, who wanted to spend $40 million for a “worthless” “band-aid” project. It was the Dixon Chapter of the Solano County Taxpayers Association that saved the day. Who do you really trust????? SEND IN YOUR PROTEST AND STOP THIS NONSENSE.
