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."

A policy that would allow Security patrol officers to make DUI vehicle stops within the gates got a vote of confidence from the woman whose experience with a drunk driver inspired it.   "Just knowing that this policy is in effect is going to be a good deterrent," Linda Garcia told the Community Services District Security Committee last week.  The committee also heard an update on gates blocking paths leading to the river.
