Security reports mountain lion sighting

| Filed under

Security Chief Greg Remson reported Tuesday that a Security patrol officer on routine patrol overnight observed a mountain lion walking on the hill between Lake Chesbro and the water treatment plant. Remson reminds residents that "we live in mountain lion country," and advised people to call Security at 354-2273 (CARE) if they see one.

The mountain lion's main source of food is deer. The Rancho Murieta deer population thrives on landscaping and some people deliberately feed them, although it's against the law to feed deer by putting out grain or salt licks. Read more » about Security reports mountain lion sighting

| Filed under

Joint Security

The Joint Security Committee wants to understand why the land owner has blocked vehicles from access to the Cosumnes.

The community’s Joint Security Committee fielded complaints about restricted access to the Cosumnes River at last week’s meeting.  The committee appointed representatives to meet the Pension Trust Fund, owner of the land, to understand why vehicle access was suddenly blocked last year.

Neighbor Adam Dubey told the committee that before his parents bought here in 1980, a real estate agent drove them “right down to the river access.”  He said legal documents on file with the state reflect river access as an amenity.  Read more » about Group asks why vehicles are barred from river

CSD continues push for new DUI policy

| Filed under

The Community Services District is continuing its effort to institute a vehicle-stop policy for drivers under the influence of alcohol or drugs.  The proposed policy was addressed at several meetings this month, including last week’s meetings of the CSD and Rancho Murieta Association boards.

The CSD proposed the policy in response to a DUI car accident a Security patrol officer witnessed but couldn’t take any action to prevent.  The policy would allow a Security patrol officer to attempt a voluntary stop if the officer believes a driver is "under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and the Security Patrol Officer reasonably believes that the operation of the motor vehicle presents an imminent threat to public safety or property."
