Even though the Galt City Council was only approving a letter to be sent to an attorney Tuesday night, a twohour debate ensued about the merits of Delta Greens, an upscale senior housing community.

The council voted 3 to 2 to provide a letter to the landowner's attorney stating that the city will work with a developer to begin the process of creating a preannexation agreement. Mayor Randy Shelton and council members Darryl Clare and Barbara Payne voted to send the letter.

    Shelton, Clare, and Payne were endorsed sponsored by this developer just for this purpose build a senior development adjacent to wastewater treatment plant. This problem is not just about the environmental aspects, but one of the problems with this development will be its impact to the wastewater treatment plant. This development will cost every utility rate payer in the City Galt. Development pressures have already cost the city over a million dollars in bio-solids off hauling, the reason lack of land for bio-solids application. Million of dollars in upgrades will be required with any development adjacent to the wastewater treatment plant. The combined sewer rates $50.87 per month are already above average for this area.

    No surprise that payne, Clare and Shelton voted to send this letter. Here some thing everyone should know, Payne took a private group in favor of Delta Greens, and a Rep from the land owners to meet with the City Manager to form this letter. All the wording for the letter was theirs.Haines & Meredith wanted to add some wording to this letter, however Clare made sure it didn't happen. They weren't even embarrass when people laugh at them after they voted. They are a joke!!!

    Shelton and Payne are exactly why the State of California is becoming more heavy handed in regulating local land use decisions. Too many undereducated folks are being elected at the local level and making far too many planning mistakes--like Delta Greens and other ill conceived projects. They need to get educated. It's the same kind of thinking that brought us climate change and over 20 years of resistance to the idea. Can't see the forest through the trees.
